Cringe Corner: Harassment from Audiowave Dasher. by

Audiowave Dasher's Channel.

Well, here we go once again with Audiowave Dasher, though the circumstances behind this article are unfortunately far different than before. This time, we're told its on accounts of harassment. Sit tight folks, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
So, just a recap on the previous article written about him back in August. He was discovered "self-promoting" in a Facebook group about a month ago, and complaining that major sites such as Equestria Daily and other MLP-Affiliated internet radio stations were not playing his music he submitted, and calling for the other members to spam said places via email, in order to get his music played.


So, lurking around I had a look and this piece is what I had discovered, his main work, so to speak. Heavily compressed guitar tracks, to out of key singing, and blatantly ripping off the riffs from Blink-182's song, "What's My Age Again?" - with that, it's pretty obvious why no one would want to play it. Nothing personal against the guy who made it, it is just that his work was simply not good.

But that kind of an explanation isn't good enough for AudioWave Dasher, aka Ben Jackson - a musician who self-proclaims he has 20 years of experience behind his belt. His mindset is one of preferring what he calls traditional rock'n'roll over "shitty dubstep that a lot of MLP stations play." While there's not a problem with having >opinions, it does become a problem when you start using it to bash everyone who disagrees with you. According to him, anyone who criticizes his work (not his character as a person) must not be musicians themselves, regardless of their background or whether he knows who they are. In other words, if you criticize his work, you clearly no nothing about music yourselves, and need to educate yourself on it, you dirty know-nothing plebians.

Yeah right, that's a pretty big case of bullshit for anyone with half a brain. You don't need to be a chef to know that a dish tastes terrible. Just as you don't need to be a musician to know something sounds bad when you hear it. For the record, I used to play bass years back, though I've long since put it away.

Now since the article, he has been for the most part largely forgotten. Except for when we were informed by a source that spoke on a condition of anonymity, that he was threatening them over personal messages to "play his song, or else." - because harassment and threats do wonders to get what you want right? Especially coming from a 34 year old man like himself, that's sure to make the people cower, right? Just because people don't bow down to your threats, doesn't mean that the fandom is "going downhill." It just means they have enough self-respect to not listen to your drivel.

The rest of the screenshots speak for themselves.

"Play my song, you plebian!"
"I don't beg anyone to play my shit, but please play my shit?"

"Clearly if you think my music sucks, you must not be a musician yourself!"
"Play my music, you fucking whore!" - tactics that are sure to work nowhere.
"I said play it or I'll have you fired!" 

If any other Pony media groups have instances of this guy harassing you, threatening you to play his music or else, then let us know. We'll be more than happy to report on it.
After all, we know drama.


UPDATE: Have some nice words from him about other brony music producers

  9. Wait, why the fuck did the station play his song AND remove the staff member for not bowing down to this guy? What kind of pussy-ass station is this that they let themselves be bullied by a talentless hack of an artist? They deserve getting shit from him if they're not gonna make a stand.

    2. It was the shit station from "Shadow Pony" called Mane Frame. They play anything they can get, and the "anonymous" guy who sent this to HN and was replying in the texts was Shadow Pony. He basically hires and fires with no reasoning; he and Audiowave Dasher are about the same level of fucking spaghetti.

  10. I did a bit of lurking around and found out some stuff that might give some kind of explanation:

    This guy has 2 other channels; a personal one under his real name (which he used to, uh, communicate with GeekBrony) and another guitar-based channel (which you can reach from the AudioWave Dasher channel's "About" section).

    His personal channel has some guitar covers on it which, despite the audio quality, are pretty well done. He clearly has experience playing guitar.

    However, it's his other channel that shows where he went wrong. The first upload on there is a solo piece, which sounds very nice in my opinion. He even has another video where he shows all his guitar gear. But then he uploaded something he made using Guitar Pro 6, a DAW which emulates guitar sounds, but not quite to a realistic level. THAT'S what he's used to make his pony songs (possibly among other programs), and it's why they all sound like he's using crappy guitar VSTs.

    So why isn't he making songs using his guitar-playing skills? I have no idea. He could be a *really* dedicated troll, but I doubt that since he seems to post pony stuff on his Facebook page. Could be that he's genuinely trying to make good music using GP6 and his voice, and unfortunately not doing so well. He's disregarding his true talent in search of another one.

    AudioWaveDasher, if you're reading this I have something I'd like to say to you. You DO have talent, but it's not being shown through your current songs. Make some stuff using real guitars! You don't need $10k of equipment for that either, you can get good quality USB mics for $100 or less. Using a fresh alias might be a good idea after all this too, in order to avoid judgement from others. The main point is: your real guitar playing is MUCH better than the emulated ones in GP6, and you do have the potential to make something good!

    Have I overdone this? Almost definitely. Whoops.

    1. Guitar Pro is NOT a DAW. It was never meant to be one. It is a software used to create music sheets and tabs, and have the ability to "listen" as you write.
      It does not allow you to do anything to your sound. You slap your VST on it, you can play with the pan and that's about it. You can't make music with GP. You can write with it, not produce.

      Delete
    2. Sorry, DAW was just the first term that came to mind, thanks for the correction!
      So you see what I mean by "sounds like crappy guitar VSTs" then, he's just exporting things he's written using it and adding his vocals to it

      Delete
    3. Yeah basically he knows how to write music but he has no production skills. Which is the reason why 90% of musicians never produce any music, production is a very very frustrating and steep learning curve.
      And yeah GP6 VSTs are based on decent samples, but they're not meant to sound like an actual person playing. Even Garage Band is a better option to actually "make" music.

    5. It's Guitar Rig, not Guitar Pro. But, in any case - great job anon. But I also was surprised when I saw his face that a person like this could be so manchildish.

      Delete
    6. Well, one of the videos on the third channel is called "Untitled Demo GP6 Midi Format". Maybe he's using Guitar Rig for the effects (since it's an effects plugin, not an instrument one) but I'm pretty sure the sounds originate from Guitar Pro

  11. "I don't beg anyone, I'm an artist in my own right."
    Yet, you're threatening people to use your song...
    Art is subjective and it means something different to everyone. It's pretty arrogant to act superior and force your opinions on others if they honestly doesn't enjoy your work.

    1. I don't think being an annoying little faggot that can only copypasta the same message on each new article counts.

      Though yeah, I still want to know what he did to get himself kicked out of that one convention or whatever the fuck it was.

    2. Has he caused anything beyond being vaguely annoying?

    3. he also tracked down one of his "haters" online and wrote them a threatening hand-written letter like a complete fucking autist

  16. >"person who studies the shit relegiously"

    The sole fact that there's someone on the Earth that feels pride and superiority for having studied music arts makes me laugh.

  19. Wow Im being torn apart by trolls. You really arent worth any more of my time. Seriously guys. Get a life. You scour the internet looking for cringe worthy stuff, yet most of you have less creativity than a crayola box. Please, get out your crayons and do something before even REMOTELY criticizing someones artistic work.

    5. What is this mental block you have that thinks one needs to be an artist to criticize art? People know what they like and don't, yout just don't want to admit people think your work is shit.

      Instead on whining like a pretentious prick, try actually improving.

  20. What a scumbag... This ignorant person is FOLLOWING me harassing me and deliberately trying to slander my music career. He was reported to the guitar center singer/songwriter competition staff for unprovikingly harassing my channel and has been banned from making comments on my youtube channel

  21. Please, hate me more. Bad publicity is GOOD publicity in the music business. If I am big enough to have haters, it really means I have truly succeeded as a musician. Please view my terrible music and comment. I get points for views and comments. Here ya go
