Is there still an Amiga Demo scene
 
or has it moved over to the PC.

I'm thinking about coming out of retirement to do a couple of chip tunes a year. Is it really worth staying with .mod format or should I move to .xm or whatever?

Been out of touch for so long I don't know what's going on anymore?

Mark.

btw have also heard that amiga peeps still compete with PC peeps and do rather well. Is this true?

Have many amiga peeps moved over to PC?

Akira 20 September 2002 23:57

Hell yeah it still exists!!! Many groups like Haujobb or TBL STILL DO stuff for the meega...

And yes, it can kick any PC's ass, as always :D

I pinched these links from exotica (http://exotica.fix.no), check'em out!

Yeah!! That would be cool..... even if there is not a "scene" you could put them up on this forum for us to enjoy.....;) I am going to do some chip tunes myself....but they will be poo

maybe you could do a "how to do a chip tune" post...with examples of effects and what they do????
;)

I think you might want to join Hollywood's netlabel. It's got a lot of chiptune artists!

.about monotonik + friends.

Monotonik is a net.music.label that _exclusively_ releases music online in the mp3 format. All of our releases are freely downloadable and distributable, and we've been releasing .mp3 and .mod files online since May 1996. The label was founded by h0l as an outlet for talented electronic musicians who weren't getting the attention they deserved.

Check it out TDK :)

Ah yeah, I remember that . Simon and I used to chat a lot, but lost touch now. Thanks for the other links everyone.

Oh and I would do a "how to do a chip tune post" but, to be honest, it''s been so long, I can't remember myself ;)

One thing I have found is, that non of the PC trackers appear to be as good as the old pro/melon tracker on the amiga... Which is a shame really, guess I may have to buy and amiga then.....

Well, if there DEFINITELY is a C64 Demo scene still (who doesn't remember one of the best C64 demos ever, Deus Ex Machina which was done in 2001!), I'd strongly believe that there's still an Amiga Demo scene too, don't you think? :)

How about doing a tune for the next issue of "Noise From Heaven"?
It's a chip mag from IRIS. check out

www.irishq.dk for details of the previous ones.

Check out the dudes and madonion , they make some excellent demos for the PC as part of their free benchmark software.

TDK 23 September 2002 17:15

Deus Ex Machina? a 2001 C64 demo? cool!!!!

I'll definately check out the chip magazine. Didn't know such a thing existed. I'd be up for doing a tune for it sometime. What's the best format now? Still trying to find a good PC tracker. ModPlug looks promising.

Looking at madonion too!

Thanks all :)

Akira 23 September 2002 19:18

Don't join the PC demo scene :(

Deus Ex Machina i but ONE example of cool current C64 releases.

http://www.c64.sk will keep you updated with the C64 scene news

Why not? As long as it's some decent work being done. I enjoy all of it, regardless of platform.

i'm not on PC but Fastracker is very popular. Similar as Protracker or Digibooster on amiga.
Impulse and Buzztracker seems to be more "powerful".

A link which could help you :

TDK 23 September 2002 20:36

Yeah thanks for that, that's where I've been downloading stuff from. Haven't looked at Fastracker for ages... maybe it's time I should again.

jrom 23 September 2002 22:42

I really have my hopes up for renoise. With some good synth generator this could be THE allround tracker available... it needs more work on xm/mod compatibility...

A thing that has been bugging me for years is that with PT2.3a died the chiptune compatibility... when tracking you could do

C-4 01 A03
--- 02 A03
--- 03 A03
etc

which triggered sample 1 to 3 in a certain way (other then using C-4 again)... now... NO tracker on the pc supports this feature! why is that?! and PT 3.xx didn't support it either anymore... was this some obscure hidden feature of PT2.x ?

TDK 24 September 2002 01:02

Hang on, not being a PC expert (yet), but I spent a couple of hours with MadTracker, and it did the retriggering thing, changing the sample number without inputting the note again.

I wanna see a tracker use the EFF command which did the PWM type effect to chip samples.

That's gonna be useful when making chiptunes. NOT :P
Seems to me on teh PC Fast Tracker is the only choice.. There was a new version in teh works but I think they canned it. It had all that plugin bloat too methinks...

I use AHX and MusicLine on the Amiga. Nothing else.

*burp* yeah your right... MT2 is just kinda slowish that's why i've never used it... Also tone slides are a bit off...

Yep... that feature is also lacking in most (all?) pc trackers... a perfect trackers is just too much to ask. most projects start off really good and after a while development stops... but i still have my hopes up for renoise!
