very very newb
« on: October 21, 2008, 22:02:16 »

hey, I'm pretty new to the world of tracking, I love chiptunes and gamewave and I really want to make some of my own, but I have a slight problem.

I try to use the sample editor and I follow all the right steps, but for somereason I just get a not very chiptune beep, even when I change pitch and all lol. so yeah, any advice on how i can correct my problem?

I usually just open the sample editor, click either foward or no loop, select new instrument and then I draw, but It just comes out as like this annoying little thing that makes me sad....

This is the general forum for introductions on The Mod Archive, you obviously are asking for help in some tracker program, which one is it? When I know, i'll move your post to the right forum so you'll get the responses you need :)

Hello teenagejesus,

this is what i found for ya:

http://modarchive.org/forums/index.php?topic=45.0

It shows Chipping Techniques and the Sample-length thing.
Your Sample should be a multiple of 8 in hex-length, e. g. 64 to be tuned to e. g. C-4  :)

If you need a more typical chipsound then just a beep, you have to use effects for that beep sound in the effects collumn.

For typical Chip-Chords please try:

Code: [Select]
C-4 1 40 047
--- - -- 047
--- - -- 047
(and so on)
(The first thing - C-4 - is the Note you want to hear; 1 is the Instrument number; 40 the volume of the Note and 047 is the Chip-Chord - maybe you want to use 037 for a variation)

Maybe you want to download some nice chiptunes and learn from looking at how they are done? As a good example in MOD Chiptunes, here is the her-Collection: http://www.seele07.de/musik/her.zip

greetings,
Ingo

PS: you need to define a starting and end point for your chipsample-loop (e. g. for forward loop)

Thx raina ^_^

Well, i made a little and rough example what you can do to avoid the beep-like sound in your chip-songs @teenagejesus.

Here it is: http://www.seele07.de/musik/beep.zip

the first Pattern (00) shows the beep sound (in this case a square-sound), Pattern 01 shows the same with a Vibrato Effect and Pattern 02 with a Tremolo Effect. The Vibrato lets the Sound vibrate in frequency and the Tremolo lets vibrate it in Loudness. :)

Hope it helps you :)
