  1. Currently working on some original footwork tunes with an acid twist (see my Bandcamp), also a Pokémon grime remix à la Terror Danjah
  2. Either Reason's Malström or the Korg microKORG. The Malström was the first softsynth I ever used, and it's so versatile I always find myself coming back to it, especially when I need a particularly filthy bassline Similarly with the microKORG, I've had mine for so long now that I can just leap on it and start making noises with no fuss; it's pretty much second nature to me now, and I've had many a lush pad out of it over the years.

  4. Nice sentence. I don't think you get this 'real name' thing, notice how I'm not calling you "Snacks". Either that or you're a big fan of recycling. Still wrong. Now shut up or talk about Mixcraft.

  6. Welcome to the Internet. We're all horrible people here Ooh, burn! I lol'd at this thread. Thanks Nase, I mean Josh, you've brightened up my day with that Also, this thread is now about posting each other's real names (and why the **** someone would censor their own speech on an uncensored forum) Anyway, to bring this back on topic slightly, it seems to me that this, and this. Though you may want to upgrade to something like Cubase at some point in the future if, as you progress as a musician, you begin to feel limited by Mixcraft. If not, then fine. Your choice. Other than that, thanks for the lulz guys EDIT: Oh, and lern2html Adeseye
  7. I didn't have an echo on mine but meh, whatever works for you. Glad to have been of service
  8. Sounds interesting from what I read of the overview document. What sort of soundtrack were you after? I write electronic music of various kinds, usually ambient, dubstep, DNB, IDM and dancehall, but I'm flexible. I've also been known to write the odd chiptune I've had quite a lot of sound design experience too, so if you're after SFX I'd be glad to help
  9. Those are some pretty rockin' songs If you mean the synth sound I think you do, then you can make it with pretty much any synth plugin. Basically, the NES and other old consoles couldn't do polyphony very much (the NES had only 2 pulse channels), so when they wanted to do chords they had to play very fast arpeggios, which give the illusion of the notes being played simulataneously. So, to recreate this, just have a basic square wave and use an arpeggiator playing either 1/64 notes or 1/128 notes (whichever you think sounds best) across the notes of the chord you want. If you don't have an arpeggiator, just draw the notes into your sequencer. To modify the sound, to keep it sounding authentic, I'd stick to just using amp envelopes and PWM - if you're going to use PWM though, bear in mind that these old machines couldn't do smooth transitions. If you want to do sweeping PWM effects, you have to change the pulse width on each note by set, discrete amounts. Taking the NES/Game Boy as an example, it could only do 12.5%, 25%, 50% (square wave) and 75% pulse widths, so these are what you should probably limit yourself to. Hope that helped EDIT:- Here's an example from something I'm working on atm that I made in Reason http://www.mediafire.com/?mcy6sb85lr6e085

  11. That sounds like an epic idea, I started dicking about with a couple of tunes from SBK1 t'other day; amazing soundtracks. If you're gonna do an SBK ReMix project, count me in! (Also shotgun Quicksand Valley )
  12. Holy shit! Thanks so much for introducing me to SunVox! Also your remix is damned cool. Like Chernabogue says, make it a bit more your own and it'll be mint. Great job though
  13. This'll wake you up: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR00683/
  14. For getting up at 5 a.m., I've always found that these work well:- - Ceephax Acid Crew: Acid Varsity Speciale ( , Buy MP3)- Snowboard Kids: Quicksand Valley BGM ( )Enjoy
  15. Reason for me, with either Cubase or REAPER when I need to record stuff. Basically, I <3 hardware
  16. I'm not having a go about sampling, I'm having a go about submitting someone else's whole ReMix as one's own.
  17. Depends which one you go for - as they're low-end keyboards (as opposed to a professional synth) most of them feature pretty limited modification capabilities. Of the ones I mentioned before, the VL-Tone has a primitive means of synthesising your own sounds from scratch. The MT-68 has various modifiers such as envelope generators and reverb, but no way of making your own basis sounds. Don't know about the MT-40, haven't got one Your best bet is to use some FX units on the presets, or just leave them as-is and marvel at them in all their cheesy glory Insofar as I know they all have at least a headphone jack - it seems that the Casiotone series have line out as well, but the VL-Tone series don't. Either way I've not had any problems recording from mine. Hope that helped
  18. So plagiarism is OK, even against the owner's wishes, as long as you name them?
  19. You are brilliant. There's just not enough love for the fantastic Snowboard Kids soundtrack I really liked this, an interesting take on a classic tune. Like AngelsDen says, don't bother with distortion, keep it acoustic. Really nice though mate, well done.
  20. Oh I am There's the VL-Tone, a tiny monophonic synth that's also a calculator - it's basically a toy but it sounds great, and, weirdly, features a limited means of synthesising your own sounds in addition to the presets. It's immensely popular; see YouTube for videos of people performing with it. There's a MIDI retrofit for it too, but it's like £40. I managed to pick up an MT-68 for 15 quid t'other day, been pretty pleased with that. Nice and cheesy, and excellent with a few FX units (I use it with a mini Kaoss Pad). Of course there's also the MT-40 which is responsible for basically all of ragga - the Sleng Teng riddim comes from the MT-40 - but I think that normally goes for a bit more, not sure of prices though, sorry. What's nice is that they're analogue, but so charmingly crap that they still go for cheap
  21. microKorg. Don't know about the XL but I've had the original one for ages and it's a beast. It's pretty cheap too, got mine new a few years ago for like £245; you can probably get the same model second-hand for a pretty good price now. Alternatively, if when you say "'80s-sounding" you mean crap/kitsch, go for a Casiotone. They usually go for <£20 on eBay
  22. why thank you. big up gastly :-P

  23. Too strict? For stealing someone else's ReMix?
  24. Just to clarify, foo_input_usf is for N64 USF files, foo_gep covers pretty much everything else you'll ever need. RSNs are just renamed RAR files containing lots of SPCs, which are the SPC700 sound format (SNES music). This
