XM making?

category: music [glöplog]
Dear 4mat, for weeks our relationship has been charming, I would even dare to say I had a crush on you but recently you started to assume I was the kind of people starting trolls o, boards while I'm more of a thread hi-jacker, which, you'll admit, is much classier and dandy-like.

now go and a make a tune about it.
kaneel, erm... it's 2011, we're supposed to argue about something else than trackers these days :)

You almost dared.
No hug at revision.

OT: Could anyone (Knl?) send/link me "Unik & Bypass - Lovemachine" soundtrack? "Drone" is dead. Module or mp3. I love that tune...

In my world, a "true old-school chiptune" is played using hardware synthesis on a true old-school chip, not with samples, so... yeah :-)

word! especially when there are analogue filters involved :-)

(although one could argue that the AgentX2 track posted on the previous page used some
kind of sample player/software synthesis. and no arpeggios, ironically ;))

when it comes to chiptune music in general, I personally do not really care how it's done,
as long as it sounds good/interesting.

as for me, I've always spent more time creating/experimenting with sounds, rather than
composing actual music. The tracker I'm currently working on has pretty wild features,
like for example "recursive" songs (i.e. you can use the sound output of one subsong
in another subsong's instrument). It's useful to build chiptune wavetables or "freeze"
the output of a MIDI synth. Definitely not the kind of feature one would put into Cubase..
(not the "bouncing" but the automated song rendering I mean).

(last but not least, there's pretty neat/relatively cheap embedded HW available today that let's you
run rather CPU intensive code while consuming only 1/6 the power a C=64 required.
but that's techno babble, of course)

about the it/xm debate: next up: coders discuss their favourite text editors :D was cute, though

Making XM is like making a love to beautiful lady...

4mat: listened the tune you linked, it's nice... You did that "ad hoc"? :)

Anyway, I guess you guys are going really offtopic. The topic here is about a ZX Spectrum engine which I've tried to use, and as I might know it doesn't support all those advanced effects such as arpeggio, vibrato, portamento etc... I didn't checked that yet, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't do the job.

I love that you talk about old tracking days through - also because I've started to make music by using those ones - and for having my offtopic part I'd say Impulse Tracker FTW!

A Pouet discussion going off-topic? Who would've thought!!

Please keep on topic and post more IT vs XM flamewars.
Well, I know how's the bad habit here, but it's better to clarify things :)

This thread is now about the real chiptunes and the wrong chiptunes.

The real question is why does it sound warmer on the amiga with protracker or with capamod on DOS?

kaneel I've never been so calm in my life, don't worry :)
