8-bit sound for DJs
« on: January 25, 2010, 09:17:00 am »
Hey look what I discovered from the tv news:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_Boy_music

What you think about porting to calculators?

I remember LSDJ from a certain site and there's also Pocket Music for the GBC that got released only in Europe. They can apparently be interesting to mess around with.

The idea is not me doing it. :P This is more a calcmaniac84 or Jim e thing.

But if I find the source code of some of the alternatives in the z80 Gameboys, maybe I can try to port it even if the calculators don't have good hardware. I think I know the basics of sound, but for some advanced stuff, I had to search some wikipedia articles.
I will check if there is any source file when I get will or nothing better to search.

This is an awesome idea!  Recently I discovered this http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/102/10288.html and have used it a lot.  I love making music in class, and I'm pretty sure what you're thinking of would be even better!  I say go for it!  :)

Nice find, too! I also saw a music editor with sound. (you could put notes with music representation)

I am glad you think this is a good idea. I am a bit excited to see what result can anyone come with.

Yeah after the DarksunDS incident I think I recall reading a post from him saying he left a year earlier because he didn't have the interest to work on z80 anymore. However, this recently updated Pokémon build (which seems to be based on his 2001-2004 build) in their file folder is kinda mysterious

Jim e experiments are mysterious.

But I think Jim e and calcmaniac84 have some interesting projects and experiments. Their works are always a surprise to us. Let me remember, Jim has the Real Sound, best so far released source of asm grayscale package, grayscale video, and so on.
Calcmaniac84, you, all regulars in Omnimaga know.

I can't imagine what Calc84 will come up with next considering he has been around for less longer than Jim and is still into hi school for a while though :O

I can't believe he's still in high school.  He's such an incredible programmer!

Yeah he started pretty young, and unlike most people who starts this young, he sticked around. I noticed when people starts at like 11-13 years old, their interests seems to change faster and they don't get involved as much.

Most people starts at around 14-16 (I started at 14, four days before turning 15)

I started at 13. As of now, I'm 15, and I've quasi-mastered z80 asm. I think I'll stick around ;D

(Next school year will be my last in secondary school (==high school in the US), though, so once I'm at university, idk what will happen)

Yeah many people lose interest or lack the time after 18 x.x, those who stick around are rare afterward and many who do hardly code anymore. Example: Simplethinker and myself
