Another big representation of me is my Youtube channel. In my teenage time, I used to play a lot of
video games. Mostly from Nintendo but also Playstation and that stuff. Later on, I also got into Computer
games and so I created my Steam Account back then in 2011. I enjoyed a lot of Soundtracks in those video games in
2011 so I looked for people, who actually covers "video game soundtracks". And there were some. I always was curious,
that people actually enjoy and cover video music but I was totally
flashed and hyped for a new song every time as well, because it definitely was my music at that time.
After a while I started creating my own recordings. My first
audio interface was the M-Audio Fast Track interface, which was not the best to start. A half year later
I bought the Line 6 POD Studio UX1 and with that interface, I finally started my Youtube channel because I thought,
the quality improved a lot to represent it on Youtube.

The rookie year: 2012 was my year, where I finally started with video game covers. I actually had a channel already starting in 2011 (with the name of KKKyire, which is now my second channel called Flaggschiff) but these covers were rather bad due to my old interface. I got my Line6 POD Studio UX1 in in May and I immediately noticed improving. The reason I started in August, is that I finally bought everything together to start and I tried to focus on older games but also on my favorite game Team Fortress 2. In 2012, I used my first guitar, the white Ibanez but I always wanted to have a Telecaster, which I bought in the end of the year.
Download all 2013 Covers here The curious year: In the beginning of 2013, my cover of "The Calm" was used by Dr Face in one of his videos. I really got a push and surely, focused more on TF2 covers. But also still lots of old classic game songs as well as trying games out. My tones in this time were actually a decent combination of the tube amp from PODfarm as the leads and a really high distorted sound for my 8 string, I bought in the summer of that year. I did not experimented that much in sound, more I tried out both guitars in the first months as rhythm/leads and the other way around. The highlight was the Terraria 1.2 Medley at the end of the year.
Download all 2014 Covers here The productive year: 2014 was, so far, my most covered year. Tonewise, I decided to leave out my metal guitars (the white Ibanez and the 8 string Schecter) and focus only on my Telecaster sound. I tried to proof, that any Telecaster can sound heavy without using standard high amps. I often switched around with classic rock amps and also tried octaver pedals as well. Every song was in that style that year. I also only used PODfarm for the bass tones - guitar tone was made with a Fender Mustang amplifier. In the beginning of August, I switched my Pickups on the Telecaster for a brigther sound, which is more close to the original Fender guitars. In May, I made a 6 days challenge and in December, I tried an 24 cover challenge, which I didn't make because of sickness.
Download all 2015 Covers here The random year: In year 2015, I uploaded more irregularly. I started with weeklys but because of some social things, I spent more time in that. Also school was a disaster in this time of choosing the wrong one, trying to make it good on cramp. I still used my Telecaster for sure but I came back to the Line 6 PODFarm, since I purchased the metal shop expansion for more sound variety. Later in the year since August, I tried a more direct sound with some percussion and extra effects. Also the arranging changed too and tone wise, I did not exagerrated with the mastering.
Download all 2016 Covers here The downfall year. In 2016, I also started with weekly covers but I did not make it, just because of really bad experience with the problems being said above. More random covers of new and older games as well as chosen covers doing. A huge break in the months between June and September. Musically nothing there. I started coming back in October with weekly videos as well as challenging again to the limits - the 24 cover challenge was successfully made and I am really content with that. Never let you getting down, stand up and make the best out of it! I am rebuilding everything there and started to get active. I also founded Fortress Werk at the end of the year but I also need to work in a company but I used the time for reaching slowly my next level - which is still a secret ;)
Recent year: 2017
The rebuildung year. In the first months until June, I was not making any covers - I composed a lot, worked hard getting "Die Redaktion" done and was still musically highly active - The highlight was winning the music contest by RichaadEB, where the first price was a new electric guitar. In June more covers were coming again as well as learning and learning for my next really big goal. As I said: It is a secret yet
