To all Mod Musicians.., Have you thought of this?
« on: April 04, 2009, 18:57:40 »

Hello ppl

As you probably have not an idea how big fan of Mod music I am..

I was wondering, if you guys can make great music, have you guys thought of making homemade videos for your songs, and probably put in YouTube?? Or are there already videos out there??

Thanks

It's not exactly "videos", but quite an amount of modules is being used in Demos.

I did a couple of videos on YouTube so that I could stream my music into Google Lively, (Saga, remember that? hehe). Played on a virtual wall in a virtual room.

example:

and a very quickly knocked up demo (music by me)

Hmmm, for me the best demo is playing modules in winamp with Milkdrop visualization running on fullscreen  ;)

I DO hope you're not using the default winamp mod plugin which is like total SHIT.

Well, I don't know where the "problem" is, but I haven't noticed any difference.
I'm NOT deaf, I can assure you. But I can't really seem to make an audible difference between ModPlay and Winamp (tweaked with various plugin EQ, if that means something).

MikMod (Winamp's engine) can't even the most simple MODs right. Not to mention IT or XM files.

As I'm tired of pointing this out again and again, I've compiled a list of five examples which demonstrate this nicely.

HardTech: Made by me in 2005, uses a lot of resonant filters which mikmod claims to support. Also, the playback is heavily distorted by default, even without any EQs.

Life Goes On: A great tune by Bacter, but not that great in mikmod. Again, the total absence of resonant filters ruins this tune.

Cream Of The Earth: Someone said tonedeaf? Well, here you can prove that you are not. Many wrong notes throughout the whole piece because mikmod always seems to use the PT1.x playing routines with on-the-fly sample swapping. But then again, it doesn't support Funk It! (nor Invert Sample), so PT1.x support is kinda poor and pointless.

Yuki Satellites: My favourite tune (even among non-module music). The envelopes of the twinkling samples get raped heavily here.

The Alibi: Not much wrong, but the general fidelity is rather different here, and I think the vibratos sound slightly different.

Check it out yourself: http://sagagames.de/stuff/mikmod.zip

If you really want to use Winamp, use the oldsk00l or BASS plugin. Or, why don't you switch to XMPlay? It's *the* module and streamed music player. Per-file loop settings, interpolation settings, etc really make this perfect for module playback.
