a thousand years

Worked on some Pure Data stuff this weekend, got nowhere and felt heaps bad! So instead here I am fooling with the Bytebeat Device music toy in No Man's Sky on the PS4. The synthesizer is fun but there's not an enormous amount you can do in the sequencer. Heaps a weekly beat.

Definitely carrying that vibe of exploring alien planets. So are you saying you made this with an in-game instrument? Kind of like how FFXIV actually allows you to play instruments as a bard with a keyboard? If so that's a pretty sick idea for a weekly beat.

Too bad the recording quality is a little unfortunate, it sounds pretty nice otherwise.

Hey Devieus, yes it's bad! I didn't get it together to do a decent recording so this was just on my phone. I'll try to make more of an effort next time.

Also, looks as if the Bytebeat Device sequencer has some options which I had overlooked so I may have sold it a bit short here. Might have another go with it later on.

I guess the best advice I can give you is to play it on PC, but I'm sure there are recording methods for PS4 that aren't as terrible as this.
