Help with fine tuning sounds
« on: July 27, 2009, 05:08:29 »

So Ive recently become obsessed with chipmusic, mostly thanks to trolling youtubes random electronic songs. I saw a lot of people have been using Milkytracker, so I downloaded it about a week ago. Since then I have been trying to figure out how the chiptunes I heard used such nice sounding 8 bit samples, compared to the ones which I have made in the sample editor which sound very bland. Am I supposed to have a pack of samples which I can just load or am I not using the sample editor correctly?

You can generate various waveforms (or draw them) in the sample editor or you can use your own samples of 8bit sounds. For example you could get a note sampled from an NES, set up loop points so that a very small portion of it loops very quickly, in this way you recreate the NES chip instrument sound. You can also do custom volume and panning envelopes etc.
