This week I'm finally at home, catching my breath. Didn't have any bright ideas, just messed up a lot with some Amiga emulation, building a whole "virtual retro" enviroment, piece by piece. I've also been removing some samples from my library, so they must be often used, turned into an usable kit or archived for good.
I messed up with the original ProTracker on the Amiga (well, actually not the infamous 2.3d, but 3.15 ECS version). The bass samples were created on a Mac running Ableton Live then converted to 8 bit 22.050 kHz using the SOX command line utility, and the drums were downsampled to 11050 kHz. Whole module took less than 54kb of space.
I loaded the whole thing into OpenMPT and then exported each channel as lossless FLAC tracks and then continued to work back on Live 9. Lots of reverb and M4L's Diffuse, but no bitcrush on this one (although it sounds like it).
I know it's quite a simple piece, somewhat juvenile and silly. Plase don't take the whole "points" stuff literally: I don't think this song deserves a 10, it's just that I had very few minutes left till the deadline and found some cool Speak and Spell samples
Like a lot of WBeaters out there could confirm, I guess, I'm confronting the fact that the key to a good setup is not having a lot, but knowing well what you already have. So I'm cleaning my sampling library, trimming all the fat
Time to sit and really check all my software, from A to Z.
Looking forward to catch up with your wonderful tunes. Have a great week!!!
