Shades of Circuits - a MaxYMiser album

Postby Skuggemannen » Tue Jan 14, 2020 3:56 pm

Spending a while learning MaxYMiser on my Falcon 030 resulted in a 12 track chiptune album Shades of Circuits that was released on several digital platforms today.

I've used my unmodified Atari Falcon sinze the early 90's, so It is a great pleasure to have an album completed on it at last.
Big thanks to gwEm for creating MaxYMiser! It's been a wonderfull journey to use this software.

Moving on to explore Ace Tracker and Cubase Audio Falcon now.

:cheers:

Good stuff! Just had a listen through on Spotify :) Really like The Feller, good happy stuff. Wish I had a modicum of music writing talent, I have tinkered with MaxYMiser but not got past the very basics as of yet.

When you listen it from Spotify, you miss the MaxYMiser screen activity visible in the Youtube Atari video, so it's clearly an inferior option. ;-)

Yes I do agree. Still Spotify is more convenient in many situations.
After working on chiptunes during this project I somehow lost interest in other kinds of music for a while. It's like being blinded somehow. But I showed it to a few that have no clue about chiptunes and old computers, and they found the sounds annoying and didn't really se the point. I find listening to chiptunes without video interesting in that way, because there is no visuals helping the song and it must stand its own ground.

That being said, chiptunes is absolutely new to me. I've been playing and recording traditional instruments in Cubase for over 20 years, so this is just exploring new ground I guess. Like this track where I tried to mix an Atari with MaxYMiser, C64 with Mssiah, Guitars drums and a tambourine: https://soundcloud.com/user-585035581/osmium

The track "The Journey" was really awesome :thumbs:

Nice to hear more Atari ST chiptunes on Spotify :)
How did you add your music to Spotify? Is it difficult?

I've been using a service from Imusichian for many years. https://imusiciandigital.com/en/
It's going on all platforms , Itunes, Google Music, Shazam, Spotify, Youtube etc from here, and you can choose different distribution modells.
I'm sure there are other distributors around, but I'm very pleased with this company, based in Switzerland I think.

And it is absolutelly no work at all, and easy..
