Amiga Soundtracker / Protracker Competition



ST-01 Disk (Soundtracker / Protracker) Competition

Rules:
  1. The goal is to do the whole composition with samples only from the ST-01 disk, which is available for download from here: ST01.zip
  2. Should be 100% retro Soundtracker style. By that we mean: NO resampling. NO processing allowed. Remember: original Soundtracker had no sample processing facility.
  3. Exception to rune No2: You can use resample function to double the pitch of a sample if necessary. You can also use taper (small fade in/out) at the sample ends to smooth out the (clicky) loop.
  4. You can create a module using any of the classic AMIGA trackers (Noisetracker, Soundtracker, Protracker), as long as it is playable by any standard MOD player and has 4 channels max.
  5. Doesn't matter where you compose it - real Amiga or on emulator (i.e. WinUAE).
Simply reply to this tread and use file attachment to submit a module. It would be useful to ZIP/RAR it prior to that, to save some bandwidth.

ST-01 disk in ADF format is available for download from here: ST01.zip


Submissions so far:

<performer> .......... <track name>
<performer> .......... <track name>
<performer> .......... <track name>
<performer> .......... <track name>

And remember, the winner is everyone who submits a track!

What about a deadline? I guess it is necessary for a competition. It is allowed to edit (cut, echo, ramp, loop, ...) the samples?

Hi!

There's no deadline actually. This is what makes it fun. We just discuss the tracks and post comments.

OT: Sorry for posting in the wrong subforum, this will be moved to appropriate place decided by the Moderator.

Cheers!!!!!

I started doing something like this a while ago. I'm in!
It's a bit shit though that there is no deadline. If there was a deadline a colection can be completed and a musicdisk compiled by a coder. Think about it, releasing it on the scene would be much better than just posting it in a forum,.

Maybe on some other competition with 256 bytes long, single cycle sinewave.

To cut or trim existing sample is ok.

But re-sampling opens pandora's box as things this way can be indefinitely processed. Thus the whole magic of good old ST-01 disk (as it is) is completely lost.

I'm sure others will agree.

But resampling inside of ProTracker should be allowed.
The Amiga's poor frequency response is only possibly circumvented by resampling.

Why don't you just use the samples from the ST-01 disk? After all, that's what the compo is about. People created very nice tunes with these samples back in the day so it's not that it's impossible or anything. It's easy to change the samples but where's the challenge then?

Agree with StingRay, most of the best tunes are from 87-88^^
And those samples are really well sampled believe me

I don't want to use new samples, I was talking about resampling, as in taking the sample into Protracker and resampling it so I can get a new range of the freq-spectrum. You understand what I mean?

It is well understood only the samples from the ST-01 disk are allowed, but what I propose is something you can do with them inside PT once you have loaded them.

I didn't mean making better quality samples, no way in hell I would be able to record that stuff back anyway, who knows where the hell they came from?

Edit: I actually had this one done in PT1.3, if I am not wrong, only with those samples, or maybe with some of the ST-02 disks:

+1 for resampling. It's so if one needs a higher frequency than the miggy can play it can be pitched up. I did this back in the day.
