    [86] Sonic 3 - Frozen In Despair (Ice Cap)
    Length: 6:28//Style: Techno//Speed: 150 BPM//Loops: 32//Measures: 243//Time Taken: 18 days
    Lyrics written and performed by yours truly
    What all can I say about this one? I tried my best to make this my best of all time. I threw in every bit of knowledge I’ve obtained over the years into this one piece. THIS RIGHT HERE is my Magnum Opus. But why did I work so hard on this? Couple of reasons, actually. Obviously I’m looking to get attention from the right people, and I’m making a profile to send in and maybe get actual work with it.
    But there’s also this one fan, Struc-semaj, who has been following me since day one. He’s heard everything I’ve got. He’s even been watching my wrestling career. That’s pretty cool. He’s seen me grow and change as a person. He notices I’ve already got two versions of Ice Cap. Yes, this here is my third installment of the legendary Sonic track. The first one was my first ever publication ever. The second one was made to commemorate my fifth year as a public musician. So he says, “I wonder, after all this time, just how much you can improve it now.” It was a challenge I unhesitantly accepted. But seeing as this is my third, and probably final remix of Ice Cap, I decided to make it interesting.
    People have also been wondering why I never sing in my pieces. Yes it’s because they are remixes, but also I never know how people will take it. My vocals in the past aren’t really that great, my father usually discouraged loud noises back then as he worked from home, so getting good vocals was very difficult back then. But since then I have won many karaoke contests, and people really liked my voice, so I decided to add some lyrics to this one. Really show off what I can do. I think this is a definite improvement from my past vocals, by FAR. That and I needed filler XD
    Though I put in everything I knew, all aspects I ever learned, like some LFO and pan-play as well as volume play and an assortment of special effects, I also learned a little bit more from this one. I learned how to control distortion using resonance. Super-sensitive tool, too much can be deafening and too little will be silent. I learned how to flanger LFO into interesting wavelengths as you will hear with the bass synth. I learned how to precisely edit different channels of audio and make everything pitch and volume perfect. There was a lot put into this one, more than I’ve ever done before.
    This is it! Everything you need to know about me and my music, look no further than Frozen In Despair. But I will say, it only goes up from here. Big thanks to everyone for years of support, special thanks to Sonic Stadium, Struc-semaj and all my other fans, the Newgrounds Audio crew (heck, all of Newgrounds for that matter), and you, the reader of course, for the listen
    LYRICS: Stranded in my glacial wasteland//I try to wave you down, but you don’t see my hand//What will it take for you to hear me, what will it take for you to care?//Your frozen heart left me to die here, frozen in despair////But so you know my will’s not broken//My fire’s growing inside, and soon I’ll be unfrozen//Will you be there when I need you, will you be the one to care?//Your frozen heart won’t even stop me, frozen in despair

    I know that Sonic Mania has been officially released but for the consideration of those members who have yet to play the game mainly in part to the PC version being delayed we ask that spoilers continue to be put into spoiler tags within the statuses or posted in the Mania Spoiler thread for the time being. That goes for (but not limited to) the names of levels not officially announced.
    Statuses and comments untagged in regards to spoilers made will be deleted as we will be cracking down on this.

    Sonic 3 - Frozen In Despair (Ice Cap) (100% complete)
    Wow. This one is so detailed. Let's see what I've learned . . . How to control distortion using resonance, volume detail especially for drums, voice editing and soundwave precision, so much more. As proud as I am with this one,  I'm a little nervous about posting it. Actually I'm gonna send this in, try to get higher up, so to say, chase that dream. I dunno where to start but I'll go on a frenzy if I have to. But overall I still want to break 32,000 hits and set a new record. Which is near impossible, Newgrounds has definitely died out since 2009 lol.
    I'm ready. I'll have it up tonight once I have wifi connection

    Sonic 3 - Frozen In Despair (Ice Cap) (98% complete)
    Decided to break from Mania for a bit to finish recording and OMG, the stress involved in the whole thing is ridiculous! First I have to get the mic to actually function and pick up with perfect or good enough to edit volume, and then sing it all with absolutely perfect pitch and volume. I only needed 3 good takes but I have to have recorded at least a hundred! 
    I'm just glad it's over. Recording is definitely more than 10% of a song! Now I have to edit and add effects and I'll be completely done with this one. Luckily I'll have 12 whole hours tomorrow,  I'm on gatewatch again. You know, I think the beat may need more reverb before i finalize it anyway
