internet weirdo. just here to hang out while i work and/or play. please don't reupload stream VODs.
hi! i'm emma (they/them? i think?). i do audio stuff for a living primarily, but am a chronic tinkerer that likes to do a little bit of everything. as such, this is a variety stream. sometimes my streams are one hour, other times they're 8 hours (ie. a full work day - if you work, it shouldn't be surprising that a full work day is 8+ hours). what happens happens! i have a non-24-hour sleep wake disorder, so my days vary in length.
my schedule is pretty chaotic as my sleep drifts with the tide, and long breaks for mental health recharge are not exactly uncommon. my health and privacy always have to come first, though. streaming is a side-effect of my job rather than what i primarily do.
you can check out a list of the currently active emotes over at [the channel's FrankerFaceZ page](https://www.frankerfacez.com/channel/msx2plus). i also have [a handful of BTTV animated emotes](https://betterttv.com/users/5f2b275d1ab9be446c4e5c12) FrankerFaceZ has a BTTV extension built in that you can activate that gives you access to all the emotes.
the most important thing is to keep it PLURR: peace, love, unity, respect, and responsibility. no bigotry, no bullshit, cool? cool. zero tolerance for intolerance. it's not a paradoxical concept. beyond that, i prefer that chat keeps it mostly topical. i like to (try to) interact and talk with y'all, and to do that i like to keep things focused. i have ADHD and am on the spectrum so i'll either tunnel vision on a project or have a very hard time focusing, so cooperative chat is always nice. i will also be very straightforward and blunt if something is bothering me. i am almost always up for production and creative process/philosophy Q&A - even while working - especially given that my process is somewhat far removed from plenty of modern music production, composition, etc. i am not trained in any way or particularly knowledgeable about classical theory and as such have an atypical approach, but i feel as though what i do can be extrapolated to just about anything. tl;dr is that in general i'll try to be helpful. i'll try to be clear when i'm having an off day and don't wanna sidestep what i'm doing. that said, i will not give you my opinion on your own work or projects or critique them or anything like that.
+ [PATREON](https://www.patreon.com/lapfox) [$4 tier has Discord access] + [PAYPAL via ko-fi](https://ko-fi.com/msx2plus) i try to make as much of what i do - music, samples, plugins, resources, tools, toys, games, etc - as free as possible. generally speaking, i only charge for major album releases these days. this is only possible because of the support i receive via [Patreon](https://www.patreon.com/lapfox). i'm a believer in the idea that those who can pay for something are the ones that make it available to everybody, and though i live month to month, i believe my current situation is proof that it is possible. any support is appreciated, but never required. Patrons get access to the 𝑼𝒏𝒅𝒆𝒓𝒈𝒓𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒅 𝑮𝒂𝒓𝒅𝒆𝒏 Discord server. it's a fairly quiet, relaxed place with plenty of creative people. i'm currently not and have no plans to become a twitch affiliate as the 50% cut is particularly outrageous for an amazon-owned company.
