Advanced Supporter

per month
For around the price of a posh coffee, you significantly support the time required to produce new videos, and the podcast. Without Patreon I cannot do this. 

Plus you get:

  • To see videos and hear Why We Bleep Podcasts first. At least 24 hours ahead of the World (only excepting the occasions it's a super secret product launch!). 
  • You get access to a private Discord server to chat with Mylar and the Patron community.
  • You get access to bonus 'Patreon Zone' Google Drive loaded with hours of entertainment: Unpublished music, my live sets and strange curios straight from my hard drive, plus samples you can make music with, and more as I add it.
Includes Discord benefits

Private Monthly Modular Session

Limited (1 remaining)
per month
This is a very special tier designed for a limited selection of people who would like to book a one-on-one 1-hour remote video chat session with me, each month, to discuss or ask anything (within reason!) to do with your modular and/or wider music production. You can ask for advice on any aspect of your (or my!) modular plans, on patching strategies, workflow, or if you just need someone to bounce music production ideas off of or ask advice. Payment will be taken up front for the first session but you can of course cancel at any point thereafter (so if you just want to book one session, for example, that's 100% cool). You also get all the other benefits as listed while you are signed up. Sessions will need to take place in the evening GMT/BST on weekdays - I will contact you once you sign up and we can arrange convenient time for you. Please just ask if you have any questions before booking!

About mylar melodies

Why do you need my money?

Anyone can make a video. But making engaging videos, that inform and that entertain, that you will want to watch again and again, is hard. It takes energy, creativity, experience, and more than anything, it just takes a long damn time to research, test, set up, shoot, and edit videos into compact video-like jewels of synth-nerd gold.

For tipping me approximately the cost of one single coffee per month:

1) You are the reason I can justify continuing to make videos. Without this contribution it would be very hard to justify continuing, given that the 'niche' nature (within the relative niche of synthesizers) of what I make does not lead to huge amounts of views.

2) You get access to join a private Discord server to chat with Mylar Melodies and the community of patrons.

And as a little extra spice:

3) You get access to an exclusive archive of historic behind-the-scenes videos. These  include:
  • Extended version of the Suggested System 303 video.
  • Bonus full (51 minute) Stepper Acid, Logic Beats and Bonus 0-Coast 'Directors Cut' Jam videos. Also, making a DIY DFAM video!
  • 'Meeting the Make Noise Erbe Verb and Echophon' Demo Video
  • 45 minute Album Preview 'Podcast'/Music Chat.
  • 30 minute guided head-mounted 'Studio Tour' video/hangout (feat the old Jupiter 6, my beloved Juno 60, VSS-200...).
4) You get immediate access to a secret Patron-only Google Drive link, which contains literally hours of my music and a rather eccentric collection of goodies uploaded directly from my hard drive, plus the odd secret surprise. It includes:
  • 57+ MP3s forming over 4.30hrs-worth of full tracks, jams, vignettes & weird music and sound experiments spanning 15 years, very few of which have ever been heard by anyone except me and my friends, and some of which I have no WAV file of or original files for anymore. There's the tune in there I called 'Mylar Melodies' which is what I decided to name myself after. There's even a weird little 6 track electro EP I wrote entirely on my phone on the London underground. Yours to download and enjoy.
  • Assorted curios from my hard drives, including:
  • A rough 'n ready WAV sample set of my parents 120+ year old upright Schiedmayer & Sohne piano, which I love the sound of dearly, and which you can hear in use in several of the above tracks. Dump it into Kontakt and over-timestretch it massively, and it sounds ace. Doomful and sombre.
  • Weird voice memos and samples including a recording of the International Space Station I made stood in a garden at 5am in 2006, and at least one confirmed Number Station.
  • A folder full of pounding kick drums I've made.
  • Unedited audio of part of my Atlantis demo video where you can hear alternative takes, and me messing stuff up. Things of this nature.
Thanks for checking this out, and I hope you can hop aboard and help keep this going.

Let's push things forward, upgrade gear and fund new machines and modules for show and tell. With a habit like this I need all the help I can get...
