We've failed to release a fourth VIPtronic album on the first of June. i@L_T`j
Now, I'm not GENOCIDE BY BOOMERANGS, who kicked off the last to albums. I haven't heard of him for a while, though, and as there wasn't a VIPtronic thread this time, I hope it's not too rude of me to take over. However, we can always make more VIP QUALITY music! I'm going to try and revive this project a little. So let's try to release the next album on schedule: 2012-01-01, submissions open until 2011-12-28.
Keep us updated on your music in this thread. Go make VIPtronic Album 5! i@LΝMj
Feel free to take over, the name/project doesn't belong to me.
I want to actually submit something this time!
Either a a simple dulcimer song, or a synthesizer tune. They wouldn't be very complex at all, since I'm not very talented, but I'd at least like to submit something!
I will probably submit a track too!
Would it be okay to release it anonymous (VIPPER) but put the release on my site anyway?
January seems so far away orz
I'll be in for this. Looks like we have PLENTY OF TIME to make some great VIP QUALITY productions, VIPPERs!
I'm glad this is up and running again! I'm also glad to (finally) contribute something!
This is my first submission, it isn't great, but I wanted to at least do something.
It is the tale of a >>1-san who creates a bad thread, so Robo-Hattoushin comes to rid the board of his topic by the use of...

Title: >>1-san must die! Robo-Hattoushin's Dark Ritual
By: Captain Dangus
I feel like my track isn't nonsensical enough now (L₯Φ₯`)
Your track evokes a desire for lasers, though, so it already seems like there will be a nice variation of songs!
If I were more visual-artistically inclined, I'd try and submit some ideas for album covers. I suppose if I think of something to whip up, it couldn't hurt to post it, though...
Also, I'll try and keep an eye out for things that could be used for COOL FREE RINGTONES.
I'm really looking forward to this release!
@ @@ n ΘQΘ@n
@ @ @ Y @@@ Y@@@@
i have some completed some COOL FREE RINGTONES. where do we send finished items?
I would suggest uploading them in a .zip file in this thread:
Then copying the download link and pasting it here.
I'd like to hear them, VIPPER!
Hmm... I suppose we should have an e-mail account to send in things not meant to be published 'til release, like with the last albums...
DJ ROCKET PROPELLED CHAINSAWS, would you be able to do that?
>>17 I have a question. Do you want our tracks to be necessarily related to VIPPER matters, or would you be fine with tracks that don't directly have to do with much of anything? I have a track right now that I'd be happy to submit, and I would just submit a VIP-related song in a few months, closer to the deadline, in addition. I don't know how different you're running it from the way GBB did in the past, that's all.
Hmm, you could always try to VIP up your song with some sound samples or references in the title or author name. But anything goes, really, as long as it's made by a VIPPER. Feel free to submit the track as-is.
I'm trying to do it the same way GBB did, but I wasn't around for the first 3 albums so I'm not sure if I'm doing everything right.
I'm working on a second track, and I like how its coming along...
Does anyone mind if I submit a second song? I feel kinda silly submitting two songs this early into the project...
I say go ahead and submit it. If we end up with too many tracks in the end (unlikely) I'm sure DJ ROCKET PROPELLED CHAINSAWS can work it out and include only your best track.
Almost done with the song I was working on, however, I had an idea for another track, so I'm going to try and complete both of them.
Either way, I'll only be submitting one more track, so I want to make sure it's the better of the two!
Also, I had some ideas for COOL FREE RINGTONES, but I'll be damned if I can remember them right now... orz
I'd be glad to give you guys something for this album. I think it should be numbered 4, of course, and in loving memory of Genocide, with a memorial written up for the album cover and everything.
A fake obituary and everthing, if possible.
Also sorry for the double post
A line for the fake obituary:
The thing about boomerangs is... they always come back.
We should also include a note about how Genocide died along with the secret of the mysterious VIPTRONIC 4, or something along those lines.
But isn't he submitting music himself? Will we write that off as being from beyond the grave?
It could be a posthumous release of previously-unreleased material.
Here is my submission for the new VIPtronic project.
I hope it's VIP enough for this, even though it's not really related to anything that's particularly SAoVIPQ (except for maybe alcohol).
I really hope we get some of these printed. I want this album to be extremely VIP quality. I wanna show it off to my IRL friends, too, and have them be intrigued at the disappearance and perishing of Mr. Boomerangs, our mysterious ringleader
Let me know how you plan to kill me off at least!
Anyway, I guess it's time to resurrect some aliases. Maybe 21st Century Vocaloid Boy for starters. I'll probably send some subs around August.
Thanks, everyone! We're having a great ringtone/song balance so far. R(L[M)Ι
Prints would be nice, but I wouldn't be in charge of them. Maybe someone else could handle that?
VIPPER is notorious for always being low on funds and in the process of changing jobs.
It will probably come to nothing, but i'm going to look into the costs of getting a limited vinyl run pressed. maybe with enough VIPCOINS i could help make it happen.
I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but that issue's been discussed before. If you want to get vinyl cut, if you're in the US, there's only a handful of places that actually cut stuff to vinyl nowadays. Also, the lowest number of units most people will press is 100. You can get lower print runs, but those are dubplates which cost a lot more per unit.
Not to say that it couldn't be done, but it would require somebody willing to shell out $1000 minimum.
Something like Kickstarter might be a good way to arrange funding without requiring a bunch of people to send VIPCOINS to some netizen they don't know with the possibility that he just runs off with it. That way if it ends up working out, it works, if it doesn't, no harm done.
>>40 Hello BENOIST! fortunatley I like in london in the UK. a bit of interweb surfig shows that there are quite a few local places that cut vinyl. however you're right about the pricing.. it would be difficult to afford, and getting an entire album cut even in a short run is gonna be a lot. Kickstarter is a good idea however. But I wonder if there are even 100 VIPPERS who would want to buy such a thing?
I wonder if there are even 10 VIPPERS who would want to buy such a thing.
my thoughts exactly. perhaps getting CDs printed would be better?
Hello everyone! I'm still working on a second submission.
The one I'm working on currently uses samples from an Earth Wind & Fire song. Needless to say, I don't have the copyright to it... so would it still be valid for submission? ('A`)
Also, getting CDs printed sounds interesting, and affordable to boot.
There's never been much regard for copyright on these compilations, as they are relatively "obscure" and free, so there's no need to shy away from sampling.
I'd buy it! Too bad that I don't have a record player.
Why not do CDs? There's usually someone that can do nice art, and it's surely cheaper. I'd easily buy all of the past and future albums on disc.
Who needs vinyl when you have BitTorrent?
My point in >>46 was that it doesn't really matter. Even if there are copyrighted samples, you could still get it pressed up on CDs/vinyl/whatever with very little worries. The copyright squads aren't going to pursue an itty-bitty operation in a rather obscure corner of the internet over a snippet of audio.
Oh my God! ('A`)
I thought I was going to have to reformat my HDD after a run-in with malware... however, thanks to my mild knowledge of computers, I was able to reverse the damage, thus saving the tunes meant to be jammed by VIPPER ( L3`)`τ
That said, my final submission for the VIPTRONIC album has been sent to DJ ROCKET PROPELLED CHAINSAWS, I wanted to keep it as a surprise.
I'm really looking forward to release! Good luck, everyone!
VIPPER, I have to speak carefully! Or else I will trigger the you-know-what filters!
Check the F.|.L.3. D.U.M.P. thread! The last two images are potential covers for the COOL FREE RINGTONES!
Please work! Please submit!
I enjoyed your album covers, and commend you to make fitting covers for the album itself! I really like the style you've got going.
Also, I started organizing all of the material we have so far... Do I make a tracklist, or do we collectively decide upon one?
Started a second track, too. Keep up the good work, VIPPERS!
In my experience this is the sort of decision where the results of a democratic process would give much worse results than following the opinion of just one person.
I've been working on something for this. Might take a while yet at the rate I'm going, though.

Reversed, because it was triggering the anti-spam filters.
Sure thing, I've already updated the LEGITimacy, but I shouldn't be much longer on changing the Volume and ringtone numbers.
Would you mind if I contributed some chiptune noise? Heavy emphasis on the word noise there. I don't really understand the first thing about music, but I can occasionally make something listenable.
I imagine nobody would mind. Submissions of any kind are encouraged!
And, I've (finally) gotten around to updating the information on the COOL FREE RINGTONES covers. Again, you can find them in the filedump thread.
I made a song for this project! Called "Apolo Juice"
I would like to be called Marisa Cosplayer ft. Charles & Audrey from text-to-speech, please.
Anyone wants to participate with vocals for one of my submissions?
There's a song I want to attempt to record as a pretentious operatic piano-driven glam rock melodrama.
I plan to do it seriously, to the best of my abilities (which is no guarantee it will turn out good), so I'd rather not use any tricks (speech synth, vocoder, autotune) or my singing voice. The style allows to work in any kind of voice.
Here are the lyrics, tinyurl'd to prevent spoilers present in the URL: http://preview.tinyurl.com/3uzyckv (some lyrics will be repeated to make the song long enough).
Two reference songs regarding genre:
David Bowie - Time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVPFzj3UnNw
Mott the Hoople - Marionette: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGG-hmPW3QI
Only requirements are a decent mic and a voice that does not bring unspeakable shame to your family. Reply by mail, preferably with a vocal sample: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
Have you gotten anything yet? I'm not a good overall singer but there are a few things I can sing, I'll record something when I get home.
One VIPPER I expected to join in replied, but nobody else yet. Still waiting a few to see if anyone else wants in.
I would like to sing a song with fellow VIPPERs. We should choose a VIP QUALITY Song, that is not too hard to sing. Then we layer all submissions on top of each other (like /v/ sings).
This would be supercool and very VIP.
VIPPERS, I present to you ``The Severe Internet'':
Good idea, ADTRW did the same with some anime OPs not that long ago, and that turned out pretty well.
Still Alive from the end of Mirror's Edge!
I'm bumping this thread with a submission!
IDEA FOR A BONUS TRACK: VIPSTAR CHORUS.
Very nice. Would be cool
I can play guitar and I have both an electric and an acoustic. Is there anything that anybody would like me to play for the album?
I have an acoustic and I'm a shitty guitar player. Interested in some sort of a duo? We could do Bach's 1669 rendition of "Fugue und Tanassinn".
I play piano and I have a copy of Logic Pro so I can make as much as you like, or as little as you so desire!
Bumping with a submission because why the fuck not?
Are submissions closed? I have something to submit, but I can save it for next time if it's too late.
>submissions open until 2011-12-28.
Go ahead and submit it, VIPPER!
I'm pretty excited for this release.
yo apparently critics didn't like the lack of a jesus phase cover in the previous installment... I think that's what the VIPSTAR CHORUS should be.
If I may know what it sounds like and how to play it, then yes! The torrent I found for the album it's on is dead. Can put it somewhere for me to listen to?
I second that motion. Jesus phase was one of the best tracks on that album. VIPSTAR CHORUS should probably use a more VIP related sample, though.
YO I SUBMITTED SOMETHING DUDES I hope you like it?
Hey DJ ROCKET PROPELLED CHAINSAWS do you still check the gmail for this project? I sent COOL FREE Anti-spam filters triggered months ago and they weren't acknowledged so I want to make sure.
I have a few tracks for this. I just need to tag them and then mail them in.
I sent them in!
...but I didn't tag them ('^')
I didn't see any tagging guidelines so I decided to leave it up to the organizer.
(PS: There's some pretty cool stuff going on in the imageboard thread, too!)
I'm so excited for this! i EΦEj
As far as the album covers, is anyone already working on them? If not, I could try and make something today (though it likely wouldn't be finished today...), maybe in a similar style the ringtone covers were done (if everyone likes them, that is).
What title are we going with for the album?
Also, I'll be sure to work in GBB's memorial bits (I was hoping I could find an actual boomerang to include in the picture, but to no avail...)
Wait, where did I have to send in my thing again? ;_;
Send it by posting it on the thread (http://img.secretareaofvipquality.net/res/9445.html) or by e-mailing DJ ROCKET PROPELLED CHAINSAWS (search the thread for his e-mail, it's in here somewhere w)
Bumping with a late submission: "in this episode VIPPER watches anime". I hope it suites VIPPER's tastes.
Bumping with a late submission: "VIPspace". I hope it suits VIPPER's tastes.
Uploaded an interlude to the SAoVP thread.
Next year I will be taking up the piano and other related theory, but perhaps this little piece could fit somewhere in the album.
I sent you a question to the project gmail.
I feel bad putting it in the main thread but since you didn't reply to the mail:
hey, so, uh, I won't have a submission by the official deadline :(
What a surprise GBB being late again.
Sorry. Life and stuff.
Anyway, do I give up or do I turn it in late?
Oh well, guess you're busy... well, expect a track at the horribly last minute!
Very sorry for blatantly disregarding the deadline. Don't worry if it's too much trouble to include it.
I can already tell you the title if that makes preparing the album art easier, not sure about the final duration though.
Title: Mov㏌ℊ Qi░Ρ♞r℮ E╳Οeʀʈ GrupCPart 2
Artist: GENOCIDE BY BOOMERANGS
Did DJ ROCKET PROPELLED CHAINSAWS disappear?
I'm here. I just realized this is releasing so soon already! Sorry, I should've been more active during the final days of the project. Thanks for all of the hard work you're put into this album! Time to read some mails and collect some tracks and maybe make a last-minute one myself i@LΝMj
P.S., GENOCIDE BY BOOMERANGS: If you like, I'll delay the release to January 3 or 4, maybe? I'd love to have your track on.
I hate to be that one asshole who can't be assed to do his song in 6 month then who rushes once it's too late, but that'd make the difference between a half-assed submission and a badass track, and now I've used up all my allowance of the word "ass" for 2011.
I'm cool with that! I don't see a reason not to delay the album to get more tracks in.
(And that certainly has nothing to do with the fact that I have nothing done in the way of album covers...)
I've got your album front/back for "COOL FREE RINGTONES VOL.5", and I really like it. I've got the tracklist ready, should I post it in here for you to make an album cover for the songs?
(Also, >>66 is a dead link, and I never got around to downloading it, so... DJ Extra Onion, if you're reading this, feel free to reupload the song so I can include it on the album. Sorry!)
Sure, that'd be great! Thanks! (Did you get my e-mail submission whenever it was in the past that I sent it?)
I'll have company over until around midnight CST, but after that I'll start working on the album covers.
Yep, it's track number 3. Here's the track list: http://pastie.org/pastes/3098853/text
Also, I just titled the ringt***s "COOL FREE R******E 80" etc. Is that fine?
I'm in contact with Captain Dangus about the covers and GBB death story angle.
I think that if the CFR album is Volume 5., the R1NgT0N3z need to be 81 to 100, not 80 to 99, since 1 was 1-20, 2 21-40, 3 41-60.
Also I may end up changing the artist name for my submission to something like "GENOCIDE BY BOOMERANGS TRIBUTE BAND" or "GENOCIDE BY BOOMERANGS (GHOST OF)".
Also I may end up submitting two tracks if I can finalize another one I had already started for this project.
And, as suggested by GBB, I put an edited version of the TINGRONE front cover that doesn't have a screen shot of a SAoVQ post.
Is there a COOL FREE WALLAPAPER? I think I might make one.
Okay everyone, I've uploaded the covers. If you guys have any problems with them, let me know!
These are awesome, even though GBB's song's track name got rendered incorrectly; it's no disaster, but if you really feel like going for absolute perfection you could fix that. (The [33CC] glyph should look like "in": http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/33cc/index.htm)
I might just keep them as is, though, it's pure VIP quality.
(Also, the CD says "80 minutes" which is really accurate; I think we have about 75 minutes of music on there!)
That's the point of the title, it's meant to look different on every configuration!
If that's okay with you, I asked Captain Dangus to prepare a different version of the cover where MPEG is moved between 10 and 11, and the very last song would be my 2nd submission (I'm only certain to send one out of two but I should have a bit more than a full day's worth of time until the 3rd so probably both). The cover is already done but the title kept secret so I will send it along with the 2nd submission if I send it.
(Guys, I need a good idea for R㏌GTONE NUMBER ONE HUNDRED!!)
That works, but makes "The Final Confrontation" more of a penultimate confrontation ;_;
(just kidding, it's fine!)
I am making a COOL FREE WALLPAPER during my event-less new year's eve. If GENOCIDE is already in the process then perhaps we might have two!
Conjured up the little ol' wallpaper using some recently acquired antique photographs and my new tripod.
I went by the dimensions of the Homegrown VIP's cool free wallpaper. If there are any adjustments which may need to be made to make it more VIP, definitely throw them this way.
That's so cool! Thanks for the wallpaper!
Use that wallpaper!
Regarding my possible 2nd sub: there's a good reason you'd really want it to be the last.
I was recreating the "CONNECTING PEOPLE" morse code ringtone in Vocaloid but it crashed R(D )m
DJ ROCKET PROPELLED CHAINSAWS, can you check out your project mail to tell me ASAP if you're OK with a (non-musical) thing I sent?
I added a little history about my submitted track and its artist.
It's almost here!!! Expect a release in a couple of days!
GUESS WHOSE FAULT IT IS THE WHOLE THING WILL BE HORRIBLY LATE
That sounds really super cool.
Dude, I'd rather it be a week late than have you run yourself ragged trying to rush it finished. Take the time you need to do it right and don't rush it/yourself.
Seeing some many people come together to make something of value, a work of art, most of them anonymously, with nothing in it for themselves right before my eyes, is beautiful and amazing.
I love you guys, and next year (this is a yearly thing, right?) I will lend my guitar to this project, and be a part of something bigger than myself too.
Actually it's two times per year, so you can try around July!
What do I even do with this once GBB submits his entry? Upload it to rapidshare or something? Who runs http://wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.tablec.at/viptronic/?
don't use rapidshare if you can avoid it, just go through mediafire. make sure you create a torrent on fapis and people who can host http links will hopefully notify you
If GBB doesn't get his entry in by the end of the month I say go ahead and release this already! He's supposed to be dead anyway. :P
>>149 I might.
GENOCIDE, how's your entry going? Any idea when you'll be able to submit? I'd like a track of yours on the album, but I'm really eager to release the album ;_;
(I'm age'ing this thread up so that GBB definitely notices it!)
We could have his track be a moment of silence. Perhaps a cover of 4'33".
Aging this thread for capital matters.
Ah, damn. Time for ACTION!!!
If I don't hear from GENOCIDE by 29/01/2012, I'll just have his track be missing from the album, but kept on the album cover in memoriam. Then I'll throw together some booklet scans and release it the 31st or so. Is everyone fine with this?

Damn, I know I screwed up big time on this one ;_;
My life was a weird mix of bad stuff involving money and being mostly 600Km away from my audio toys and me being stupid enough not to notify DJ ROCKET PROPELLED CHAINSAWS of the situation while he patiently waited.
Okay then, whatever happens, release on the 31st, and I'll try not to be irresponsible enough to not have sent my stuff by then.
(Oh, and I run tablec.at. I'll see if I can make you an upload-only account. It'll be mirrored whether I'm in or not.)
(Oh and I will also do the pictures we discussed.)
Expect a release whenever GBB reads his mail in the next couple of hours!!
Thank you for your hard work and great cooperation, VIPPERS.
Oh shit, I deleted the track numbers by accident. This probably matters a lot. I think I'll reupload this, but for now: if you just want the music, ͺͺͺͺͺ
It's all well and good that these albums enforce a sense of community and all but... A little quality control would be nice.
I mean, 26 minutes of gibberish is going overboard.
I could've left that out, but having OVER ONE HOUR OF VIP MUSIC was too cool to pass up. Consider it a "joke track".
Disliking some of the tracks is cool and all, but a little negativity control would be nice. Thank you, and have a VIP day~!
Yep, it is now mirrored on http://vipperbou.tk/music/, along with all of the other VIPTRONIC and DQN Electronics releases, covers, etc.
downloading from my old symbian phone, I got an unzip program just for this, can't wait
While we have your attention, could you make Title its own category? It wasn't done by the dqn electronics people and both MisterCQNZR and GBB requested you change it in the quadrx thread.
Ah, I shall do so! I remember them qsking me, and must have had it slipped my mind. I'll add it to "Affiliated (Barring Connotations) Works", along with the Tanasinn EP.
Any other suggestions?
This album is legit(tm), I can guarantee its quality. My only complaint is that the ringtone I submitted to that thread ages ago wasn't included.
WELL DONE EVERYBODY!!! the contributions by VIPPER(s) were really interesting!
when are people gonna start on viptronic sixpack? www
My dad liked VIPTRONICs 5. (How he found his way into the VIP lounge, I don't know.)
I like the idea of the title being "VIPTRONIC Sixpack", so long as Club Mate is depicted on the front cover.
...I will really, really, really contribute the next time
Holy shit Dangus' REMEMBER is fucking killer. Seriously, this is all sorts of amazing. (>Φ< )
Just got around to listening to it. Great work from everyone!
Can't wait to make a legitimate track for VIPTRONIC Sixpack.
I can't see a torrent for this on Deadfrog at the moment. Shall I do the honors?
