ChipTune DJ-Tool Project: Bit-Juggling

Son of 8-Bits - Bit Juggling

Time for some fun, time for some new DJ-Tools, time for some new (free) downloads! Here’s the down-low:

Today I release a previously unreleased DJ-Tool I made back in 2007. With the release of this DJ-Tool I start a new project I like to call ‘Bit-Juggling’. Every now and then, I’ll upload a new track on my project page ChipTune. There, you can sign-up to join the project and download the first two songs. After signing-up you get notified automatically when a new track is posted and each new one features it’s own unique artwork and sounds from different kinds of software and hardware, like, for example, KORG DS-10 Plus for Nintendo DSi or Little Sound DJ on the Nintendo Gameboy, a beaten old Commodore-64, or a friend’s Amiga. I might go all out and cheat a little, meaning my vacuum-cleaner and blender aren’t ruled out!

The album will be finished bit by bit, download by download. But here’s the catch: When the album is finished, it will be sold. Meaning that if you sign-up now, you get the whole album for free! Those that wait might have to pay a fee… Early-birds get the most!

See that Facebook share button up there? Or the Tweet button below? Use them to get your friends involved as soon as possible before the ticker starts counting. Let’s kick-off the project with the first DJ-Tool!

Der Doolb

Inspired by hard hitting electro tracks such as IF’s ‘I Do Because I Couldn’t Care Less’ and Mr. Oizo’s ‘Smoking Tape’, this DJ tool features 808 style sounds taken from a Commodore 64 with the volume turned to 11. Mangled, twisted, and slammed through countless waves of distortion, recorded on a tape-deck, and then, neatly wrapped-up for use in your audio-reproduction tool of choice. Enjoy!

Written and mixed using only the KORG M01 software for Nintendo DS. A huge war was fought to get rid of the noise, and further EQ and compression done in Ableton Live.

I hope you like it!

Detune Ltd. unleashes it’s newest and first creation onto the masses.

Although it’s a follow-up to the Famous KORG DS-10 and KORG DS-10 Plus, the KORG M01 Music Workstation is the first under the Detune flag. So, how does the software turn out?

A lot of fun, as expected. Great for everyone who wants to make music on the go, wants a bit of lo-fi in his or her set-up or wants an emulation of the real M1. It sounds like you expect it too, a little lo-fi (because of the NDS’s 22050Hz sound-card.) But the sound is crisp with a dash of 16-bit crush in the form of anti-aliasing in the low-end and a bit of stutter in the lowest part of the dynamics. (A sounds low-volume tail will blink in- and out- of existence.) The layout of the app is easy to use and will have you writing all kinds of music in no time. No matter if you want to make something electronic like techno or Dubstep or want to try and throw in a real composition. This app can do it with the quite large collection of samples built into the application. These samples include the original sounds of the KORG M1 and some bonus sounds to broaden the spectrum and give you some modern sounds to play with. Sometimes modern means Roland 808 or an Amen snare though. As a whole, it’s perfect for re-creating an end 80’s/begin 90’s vibe. Chicago house, Tears for Fears, Detroit Acid here we go!

But there are three small things that I think should and could have been included. It features two effects: Delay and reverb. But you can only choose 1 for the whole track. I would have liked me some delayed beats and reverberated melody. The second thing is that I would have preferred a DSi mode in the app. A little bit more memory and CPU so the app can do a little but more like DS-10 Plus has double mode on the DSi. (I could surely use 2 effects if it featured DSi mode!) And finally, linking with the KORG DS-10 is impossible. There’s is no link mode in the game at all, so syncing two M01’s is also out of the question. But yeah, that’s revenue management for ya, it will probably be featured in a new version called M01 Plus…

At the end of the day, the software is great fun and a recommended buy. But it’s probably going to be sold out for a while.. Keep an eye on the following link to see when it will hit the stores again.

EDIT: Preview of a track I’m working on.

EDIT 2: Finished version! (Released on the EP: Y.A.M.A)

A bit late, but as promised

A track from my DSi! I’m sorry to say that the other things I made will be blended into full projects. So it’s just this DJ tool for now.. But good things come to those who wait.
