My Preset Pack, l33t viz vol. i (wherein, I steal a bunch of great code)

Hello,

This collection of presets for milkdrop 2 beta represents countless hours of time intoxicated on various substances, amphetamines being my favorite. I was creating (or remixing, whatever you prefer) these files up until the time I went into a rehabilitation treatment center for chemical dependency, namely prescription amphetamines, methamphetamines, marijuana and alcohol. I didn't credit anyone with the code they created. I often wonder how many preset authors are now not with us today. Sometime ago, I realized that for those minutes and hours and days I spent near overdose tripping on milkdrop would be for nothing if I didn't share them. Maybe I should have deleted them. I have been off drugs for 9 months now. I wish I could say I am happy now. I'm not loaded and crying in my room as I watch the sun rise for the second, third, or fourth time, unable to participate in society, but the scars of my addiction run deep. Addiction took me from a happy twelve year-old to a damaged and slowly recovering twenty-six year-old. I am slowly rebuilding relationships with my family. I found out after treatment that I have a son. I get to see him occasionally, and it hurts, but it's for the best for now. I can barely listen to the same music without being triggered to use. Maybe someday I will be happy, for now I just don't get high, every day, no matter what. Even though I really want to. I hope I included everything you need to enjoy my presets.

I dedicate this collection to all the addicts out there still suffering.


There is help, there is hope, you just have to reach out.


Sincerely,
Desperately,
Fondly,
Sadly,

LuxXx

Heh, your pack was motivation enough for me to finally write a little program, that automatically changes the header lines from

MILKDROP_PRESET_VERSION=201
PSVERSION=4
PSVERSION_WARP=4
PSVERSION_COMP=4

To

MILKDROP_PRESET_VERSION=201
PSVERSION=3
PSVERSION_WARP=3
PSVERSION_COMP=3

for all preset files in a directory
For single files I did change these lines manually before, otherwise the presets won't display on ATI graphics cards. But I've got them all working for me now.

A huge pack with great remixes! I like! I have looked into some presets and found new shader code fragments - did you program some on your own or are those all pure mashups?

I'm not sorry to hear your story, but i hope for you that it was your last episode of that kind. It would be too easy to blame it on the drugs. As for me i like to smoke marijuana and watch MD too - unable to produce anything good then. I can watch a single preset for hours and it is like a meditation or self-hypnosis thing. I mean after even more hours of creating it beforehand. My mom is suffering from depressions and i can relate to that state of mind too. At the moment she's in the mental hospital again and after several weeks the doctors still try find the proper medication. This is taxing for all involved...
I am as old as you and i can relate to almost 10 years of not only responsible drug use, though i can't say that i was ever really addicted. Anyway almost for the cost of my degree at the university.

Use your skills to be creative!

Wow thanks!

What a huge vis pack, def digging this.

Flexi, any chance you would post that script you wrote to change the
PSVERSION=2
PSVERSION_WARP=2
PSVERSION_COMP=2

settings?

I'd love to do these en-masse but my scripting chops aren't quite there yet...


Thanks

Here ya go!
This is the source and the executable for the 4 -> 3 editor.

Changing a preset's shader version to 2 wouldn't make much sense because it will not run then most likely. And be sure to have a backup before editing the files!

hi!

First of all, lol @ myself.
My initial post (and preset pack readme) was so full of hurt and self-pity... Reads like a depressed 13-year-old wrote it! I think I am going to change that a little bit! I am amazed milkdrop is still the standard for trippy home music viz, I would have thought something else would have taken over by now. Magnetosphere totally doesn't compare. Where is milkdrop3d already?!? I didn't even know if my presets would work without the beta dll...
I am so glad someone is looking at them besides me! I always knew milkdrop was something special... I'm not surprised the creator went on to something so huge.
Flexi: Yes, I messed around with some fragments of my own, but I really don't have the math chops to really know how and why everything is working. I always wanted to pursue this avenue of art/technology. Remixing is always something I've enjoyed, but I've always wanted to write my own from scratch, and never gotten up the courage to do it. Are you still creating presets? Is your career related to technology or music or both?
much love,
LuxXx
PS thanks for all the kind words!

LuxXx, I first off want to thank you for this amazing Preset pack. Though some were too bright, or too flashy to look at, most of them were epic. I loved them a ton, and, though you have bad experiences in your life, it is obvious you love to make these. It was your presets that got me really rolling in preset making. So, in your honor, I dedicate these presets to you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do, and I pray for your safety and wellbeing.

When it comes to milkdrop, I guess I am kind of a whore. But a classy one! Your presets are great, and your effort is very much appreciated. Thank you very much for sharing these. These have certainly earned a spot in my regular rotation.

So vol. 1, huh? Does this mean there will be more?

But that's what makes milkdrop, and this community, brilliant. Think of yourself more like BASF... "You don't make things. You make things better." (Wow, that came out of left field.) Anyone that takes the time to package up their favorite presets, regardless if they wrote them or not, is great for this community. So, thank you.

Sounds like you have had some crazy times. Sounds like things may be getting a little bit less crazy. I certainly get it.
