Chiptune… really shitty Chiptune
UPDATE: Attempt No. 2 Now with less ear pain!
I have been listening to chiptune all my life (I’m counting all the video games I played growing up), and this is my 1st attempt at making my own… it’s not so great.
I used milkytracker to make it, and VLC to convert it to an MP3, mostly because I don’t have a clue what I am doing. I still don’t quite know how to use milky tracker yet either. If anyone has any good tutorials or guides, please feel free to comment with them 🙂
If you’re interested this is what Milkytracker looks like:
The UI is a little clunky and hard to navigate at first, but you get the hang of it pretty quickly. Also, unlike any other type of music editing, Milkytracker (and all tracker programs I’m told) progress VERTICALLY, instead of horizontally. AND everything starts in hexadecimal, rather than standard decimal. Very steep learning curve there.
When it all comes together (and isn’t shitty like my song) it looks like this:
This was not a song I made… I am nowhere near this good! Check out bFly on Soundcloud.
OK, I hope you enjoyed this little mini guide to Milkytracker, and that my song was not too offensive to your ears 😛
