Hey There!
I’m Qumu, and I make electronic covers of videogame music, which I then upload to YouTube. I take music from my favourite video games, and arrange it in a way that sounds good to me. I mostly try to retain the integrity of the original tune, either by trying to capture the mood of the original, or by keeping the composition of the original fairly intact.

What kind of covers are coming in the future?
Some of the tracks I cover will be decided based on a poll held here on Patreon. Apart from those, I tend to cover games I have some kind of connection to, either because I have played them growing up, or because I’ve enjoyed them in more recent times. This means that I can cover music from both retro and modern games, but I am hesitant to cover tracks from games I haven’t played. However, if a track from a game I haven’t played appears on the Patron Poll and gets chosen, I will definitely give it a shot no matter where it comes from. I will just need a little bit more time to get into the spirit of the song if don’t know it.

Why Patreon? 
Patreon is a place where fans get a chance to support their favourite content creators and get something in return as thanks. I truly love making music, and the support I get through patreon helps me to do what I love for a living. and motivation for me to increase the audiovisual quality of my work. 
It usually takes tens of hours for me to finish a cover and upload it to, so a lot of time and hard work goes into making the tunes you can hear on YouTube and digital platforms like Spotify. The way I produce music is very software and hardware oriented, so being able to acquire new instruments and update my equipment is very important if I want to produce higher quality music, which you as a listener will benefit from. YouTube ad revenue can be pretty unpredictable, and I wouldn’t be able to live off that alone, so I really benefit from the extra income from Patreon to use on gear.
In short, Patreon provides an excellent opportunity and motivation for me to increase the audiovisual quality of my work. 

I want to express that the Patreon page will in no way, shape or form exclude people from the content that I create. Every finished mix will be uploaded to YouTube, and anyone will be able to enjoy my covers there for free. This page is for people who both can and want to give me some extra support, as well as get involved in my music making process. I also want to stress that Patreon is not required (and doesn’t affect your ability) to get your voice heard either, as I read and reply to the comments I get on my YouTube videos.

Donations will go towards:
  • Increasing the sound quality of my mixes with both better and more audio equipment 
  • Adding more software instruments and plug-ins to my repertoire, which will give me more flexibility and also increase the sound quality of the mixes
  • Speeding up music production and video work through better computer components
  • Image and video editing software in order to increase the visual quality of my uploads

About the frequency of new releases
I try to stick to a schedule where I release a new remix every other Thursday, which amounts to 2-3 remixes per month.

Patreon gives you the option to limit the amount of times you can be charged per month, so if you decide to pledge, please feel free to set this limit to a number that you're comfortable with.
