Very nice first try, I love the punchy drums and the various melodies!

Thanks, there will be more music soon. Also a bit longer ones.. Wink

Quote:

First time I hear drum 'n bass on Music Module! Smile Great! Give us more! Smile

I didn't hear any dnb on moonblaster myself. Probably the most of my music will be dnb-, acid-, techno-ish stuff.
I'll hope to upload more soon!

How nice to see a new Moonblaster/MSX-Audio person. I thought I was the only one left alive Big smile
If you have a "is this possible? and how?" question I probably have the answer.

I can hear you probably have quite some chiptune experience. Good job. Good to hear fresh tunes from unexpected sources Smile

Thanks Meits, we probably stay in touch then, I'm still learning MB and have loads of questions Wink
I've used trackers like Octamed and Renoise with samples, but my real chiptune experience = zero Question
I realy like the way MB works as it's fast and very creative. Also the sound of the OPL makes me wanne try lots of stuff with it. So there is more music comming soon!

Afaik poke-1,170 (soundcloud) also makes his music in MoonBlaster. His style is glitchy electronic, you might like it! Check his album Cryptochrome on Bandcamp.

@grauw: thanks for sharing poke's channel, I want following that one yet. He has 3 i think (one is called c-men unless thats someone else and another Julian van Aalderen) at least I assume those are his. And yes most or all of his work is with MB, but he does some post-processing on each channel (recorded seperately) iirc, he talked about it in some old topic.

Interesting. With a comparable history (i've used fasttracker, renoise, reason, cubase), when I tried Moonblaster a few years back I felt severely limited and thrown back into the stoneages that I ragequited after making a 40 second loop Big smile

@syn
Sounds very cliché, but I really think the more limited the software is, the more creative you get.
But I must say that MB 1.4 can do much more then I thought it could. I also think that the combination of the hardware and software is very nice. Especially with the Philips Music Module. Never thought something would beat my Amiga.... oO

Dont get me wrong i love limitations,, as long as they are hardware wise Big smile I'm having more fun with Trilotracker than Ableton Live atm Big smile

Anyway Im pretty sure I can get something nice out of Moonblaster with some work, and many ppl can (both from the past and present) so I guess its just me.

Also I think it is funny I keep seeing ppl from different platforms trying to make stuff on MSX. I actually installed a C64 emulator a while back to try that Polyanna thing (8 channel tracker on sid) and have the intention to try maxYMiser on the Atari ST sometimes. So this "exchange" goes both ways Big smile

Maybe also an interesting fact (found on Wikipedia)

This track from 1988 also contains a riff taken from the build in software of the Music Module.
Also the choir sound is sampled from the audio cassette that came with the module.

Well I almost just was going to sample some opl stuff to use inside my laptop, but I found it is great fun to use Moonblaster after some experimenting. Also think that this way you can get the most out of this chip. I use it for just a few weeks now..

SID sounds great, never had a c64 though. Atari ST YM chip sounds cool, but trackers also limited to 3 tracks. Sampling sounds horrible on ST, at least with microdeal sampler it did. Mainly used the ST for midi sequencing with Notator SL, which worked really great. Best would be to combine different chips and sampling features. I find that the MSX with the available old and new hardware does the best job for this.

Maybe a bit off-topic. But I have uploaded a song which is an arrangement from a MOA track. I believe it is called 'Howling Wolf', but I am not sure. I also don't know the source of the original (which music disk or demo). Does anyone know? After that I will submit the mp3 to msx.org with the proper information. Smile

It seems you made a cover of the second one

Wow, that's indeed where it came from. Thanks Meits! You're a walking MSX encyclopedia Smile

I remember that I found this an awesome song. That's why I covered it. The original still sounds amazing. The 'stereo' Music Module / FM-PAC combo has a very specific sound to it that I still like.
