Can you reccomend a composer program?

Postby Soluzar » Wed Mar 05, 2003 9:27 pm

I've been looking for a program to help me compose a little bit of chip music... I could only find one: "MV2000" by the X-Troll crew.
I can't seem to figure out how to use it. :oops: :oops:
Can anyone either reccomend something easier or tell me how to use this program, please?
I have a good grounding in music theory, and have used MIDI sequencers, like Cubase, and also sample sequencers, like Quartet, so I feel really thick for not grasping this... :D :lol: :oops:

hmm no doubt, the X-troll tracker is quite 'raw'!

dhs.atari.org has got the most comprehensive collection of chiptrackers, try em all out and see which one takes your fancy!

I guess the majority of st musicians use Sid sound designer these days, it's the most powerful of those available (sid fx, software envelopes etc) and the interface isn't too bad!

good luck dude :)

hi.

dhs is down at the moment. they are moving servers. I can
recommend Sid Sound Designer which is used the most and
easy to handle.

Apart from DHS, Atari.tracking.org has a lot of chip trackers as well on this page: http://rcswww.urz.tu-dresden.de/~nf326036/chiptrac.htm

Hmm? i'll have to try them out myself, now i finally got a "normal" Mega ST2 now.

Ayreon, you must surely win the award for the most obscure joke of the decade! It took me nearly over half a minute before I got that! Good one though! :D

For those who feel like composing psg music on ST, I would also suggest Megatizer 2.4 by Jedi / Sector One available on dhs website
It was released in 92 and is one of the best sounchip editor I know on ST
It was quite popular for a time but I think no one uses it nowaday
It doesn't use the timers to create "sid sound", it just uses the sound processor and a digi option rarely used

I gathered all the known musics (by me) composed with this editor here
http://home.tiscali.be/-aldn-/ymsound/M ... %202.4.zip
(ym format)
The files have to be sorted, I'm not sure about the authors
Some of these tunes are just my favorite soundchip musics

It seems there's a fashion for old computer music in the air, well why not composing music on a +20 years old sound processor :-) it can be some kind of fun
as the back to the roots motto
