Introduction

SCC-Musixx Menu

SCC-Musixx is a music editor, tracker style for SCC made by Tyfoon Soft. It requires the presence of a SCC cartridge in slot 1 or 2 without launching of the game. The intro menu allows to choose the musical program itself or the preset editor.

Attention! It's not recommended to insert a non-modified cartridge when the computer is on, as you could damage the computer and/or the cartridge. Different technical solutions are possible to modify the cartridge, such for example a switch. More infos on this page: http://bifi.msxnet.org/msxnet/tech/switch

Tip: If the message "NO SCC found" is displayed when using the music program, while a SCC cartridge is already present in a slot, press the "1" key or the "2" key to specify in which slot this cartridge is present.

The Programs

Music Program

SCC-Musixx - Music Program

SCC-Musixx uses a pattern notation. A maximum of 20 patterns can be used and each pattern is made of 5 columns and 64 lines. The notes and other datas are entered by using the keyboard. 13 different special effects are also available. By using the INS or DEL key, the octave can be modified.

Other features: programming of tempo changes and repetitions, definition of a timerbyte, exploration of unknown SCC registers.

Preset Editor

SCC-Musixx - Preset Editor

The preset editor allows to create your own sounds and to add them to the provided list of 44 presets. As each wave is composed of 32 bytes, you can modify each byte of an existing preset or start from an empty preset.

Other features: listening to the preset stored in the buffer, visualising the wave corresponding to this preset (in the Wave Editor) and even ripping presets from a game or demo with SCC music.

Extras

Replayer

To access the replayer, you need to boot the computer without the SCC-Musixx in a drive, then insert it after booting. By entering FILES, you will find 2 versions of the MSX-BASIC replayer:

  • REPLAY.BAS is the first version that does makes an automatic search for the presence of a SCC cartridge in a slot
  • REPLAYX1.BAS is the second version that allows to specify in which slot the SCC cartridge is present

Both versions of the replayer can be used on any MSX generation, they are compatible with MSX1.

The code source is also provided.

Included musics

Several musics (.SNG files) are included, their number vary according the used version of SCC-Musixx.
