I had some weird inapproriate music to go along with it, which I like. It’s simple. A loop I made with Sid Wizard, a great tracker for the Commodore 64 (http://csdb.dk/release/?id=131846) . I’m still working … Continue reading →

I bought a Mssiah cartridge recently, so I could use my C64 as a live instrument (with the option of using a midi keyboard). I’ve played around with it a bit and here are to examples: The first one is a test with with the Mssiah mono synthesizer and Mssiah drummer, using a looper. 1st … Continue reading →

Procedural singsong

I have an old unfinished program (actually an excel sheet) lying around that creates procedural music.

Music test

For the upcoming Ludum Dare I tried a new workflow for music. Did not make a lot, but I made this: metal test with aquestone singing And I had some sorely needed practice with Reaper. By the way: the drums are inspired by the Racer X song: ‘Everythings’s Everything‘.

I’m the SID collection!

The SID collection is library of music made for the SID (Sound Interface Device) chip. The SID chip was the sound chip for the Commodore 64. I was looking up my own game on csdb.dk (Commodore scene database) checking if there were some more comments on my game (there’s a funny Dutch word for it … Continue reading →

More Helsing Stuff

The flow of the game is working pretty good now. It’s quite easy to make transitions from intro to startscreen to helpscreen to level intro to level. Or any transition you like. It’s now also possible to play the first level, beat it and progress to level 2. Level 2 has no stabbing, no hit … Continue reading →

You will need an C64 emulator to run it (VICE for instance which is free and can be … Continue reading →

Random music on VstHost

yesterday I downloaded a nice little program called VSTHost. You can easily try VST plugins with it on your PC keyboard. I had fun creating an arpeggio with my foot as accompaniment to  my guitar (maybe I’ll post a recording made like that later). I also tried the basic64 plugin. The result of random key pushing … Continue reading →
