Hi everyone! I have a little request.
I have been providing free downloadable music for almost 10 years now already.
Millions of listens, thousands of fans. 0,00$ earned from all the downloads.
I never made music to earn money tho. I just want to bring you
something cool to listen to. But Im starting to get a bit of financial pain,
of all the time and efforts i spent on making free downloadable music.
And I thought that maybe you guys could help me out.
Please, if you can, make a paypal donation by clicking the link below,
and follow further instructions. I can really, really use some financial support..

CLICK HERE IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A DONATION

Thank you very much! <3
-ParagonX9

EDIT:
Forgot to say that the donation will also help me getting a new PC.
My PC broke again a few days ago. I'm now using my parents pc again
which is not able to run the music software i need to make new songs.

I would like to thank the people that have made a donation.
I'm really lucky to have you guys! Thank you very much!

People that have donated:
- i. wiesner
- f. alsaadi
- M. Green
- P. M├Ąchler
- C. Eggers
- A. R%u0119bacz
- C. MacNiven

Thank you all very much! <3

You'll probably get a better response if you put an "Best Of ParagonX9" album up on bandcamp and charge a small fee (or do pay-what-you-want).

You should really start doing some work for games and other stuff freelance. You've got a name for your self and you've got the skills, I'm pretty sure you'd get on just fine

From what I've seen it seems the best way to make somewhat of a living from making music

Gast! Je kan via newgrounds geld verdienen via ads. Ga naar My account > Ad Earnings en de rest zal duidelijk zijn ;)
Sterker nog ik weet zeker op die manier verdien je meer dan mij!

I Hate Donating. As New-Groundforme Sayed, Sell Your Top 10 Songs And Sell Them. Donating Is Just Paying A Dollar For No Reason.

As well-known as you are on this site, I find it really hard to believe that you haven't made any money off of ads or whatever. Have you activated the rev share thingy??

2012-01-30 19:06:31

Why make a CD when its all free? Just make your own CD and donate some money. Pretty much the same thing

I have been listening to you music for years now. and while i wish i could donate and give you something. Alas i can't you know being under 18 and Paypal hating on the younger people

It really sucks that you're in the same boat that Celx Requin was, and I found someone whose games could cheer you up a bit: http://maelstormm.newgrounds.com
By the way, have you ever considered trying your luck at flash again?


sweet21sweet21

2012-01-30 20:32:25

K. Don't you make money off of games and stuff your music is in? Perhaps get commissioned to do a soundtrack.

Two things I recommend doing:

1. Activating Newgrounds Ad Revenue Share

(http://www.newgrounds.com/account/rev enue/)

2. Making a BandCamp account (it's free, and the pricing/share rate is so low (initially 15% of a sale goes to BandCamp), it's like you didn't lose a thing!):

http://bandcamp.com

Hope these help you out! Best of luck with everything!! :-D

1. Don't lie about your Gender :P

2. Start a Kickstarter and make a compilation for it!

I am not sure if you have recieved my message, my sentbox does not say so:

Hello Paragon.
My name is Mike (Antiskill)
I am from tashkent russia.
I really like your music production style.
As I'm sure you kno, dnb is very opular in russia, the harder the better XD
I have shown my friends your track, Chaoz Devotion, we step to it all the time.

Now I wish like to ask you if there is anyway I can make a remix of it?
I know it is an old track, but maybe you can send me some samples or beat patterns/notes on how to make it?

This will be a great thanks!
Also, I understand you want some money for music making, there are many great producers here that want money haha.
I will support you=]

I also will make DJ some of your tracks in the future so people can find out about you =]

Thanks!

Try out the flash community and make games for them. Like Ockeroid already said, you have a name for yourself and tons of flash developers would love to put your music in their game.

Dang. I'd actually donate you something if I had a credit card. Out of most NG artists, you actually deserve some cash...

I'm sure someone suggested that before, but why don't you make a Bandcamp account? That site allows you to sell your music without a single hassle. You could just make a big list of them to sell separately, or even create an album! The site has a ton of tools for such, and I'm sure a lot of your fans would buy your songs. Hell, I probably would. :0

AceTheSky scares me...

I couldn't think of anyone on NG more deserving and for that I shall donate what I can.

All the best...
