Profile

Saga Musix...
... is a German tracker musician and programmer born in 1990. He is also programming games and tools since 2002 and composes modules since 2004 (2002 if counting in poor attempts at DOS AdLib trackers). He's spent more than half of his lifetime with tracker music. He's not fixed to a single genre, however he enjoys mostly electronic music styles. In his spare time, Saga Musix enjoys listening to music, watching demos, going to demoparties, programming and similar computer related stuff. Some time ago, he started composing music for a demo group called Nuance.

Saga Musix is also one of the guys who filter your daily ModArchive uploads and moderates the forums here, and is also a #modarchive operator. So watch out! ;-P

Hell, why do I write in 3rd person?!



This collection does not feature all modules I've written (some old stuff is fortunately missing). However, I've also uploaded some tunes from my games to ModArchive which you won't find on my website.
These days, I'm occasionally using VST plugins in my modules, also VST instruments, so uploading some of my new tracks to TMA is simply impractical. So if you like the stuff you can download here, you're invited to visit my website where you can find some more recent modules! Also, if you want to download all my stuff in one go, please visit my untergrund ftp.
Have Phun!



Don't know where to start? Here are some of my personal favourites, sorted from newest to oldest. Maybe some of those tunes will delight you:

How to play my modules: I recommend using OpenMPT to listen to my tracks. XMPlay is also a very good choice. The safest way to listen to the tunes "as intended" is to download the Ogg / FLAC files on my website if you don't want to / can't use OpenMPT. Do NOT use MikMod or any player that uses MikMod (for example Winamp). Also, XM-based players / trackers like MilkyTracker are a no-no. Don't even think about opening .IT files in Milky. It's horrible. Only do it if you need a good laugh. ;-)

Note: OpenMPT's playback engine is available as input plugins for XMPlay, Winamp and Foobar2000 as well. There are several players for other platforms available as well. The ModArchive online player is based on libopenmpt, too, so you can be sure that it plays my tunes correctly.

Caution: Some of my modules from the 2007-2009 era use VST plugins (I refrain from uploading such modules to TMA these days). You have to play these tracks in OpenMPT. I've prepared a small tutorial that demonstrates how to handle VST plugins in OpenMPT (which is dead simple). There's also a list of free VST plugins that I use - you can download them right from my website or the author's website. Sorry for the inconvenience, and sorry for polluting IT files with VST, but history cannot be changed, so those files are here now.



OpenMPT
As you might know, I've also joined the OpenMPT dev team in autumn 2008; OpenMPT is now the biggest project that I maintain in my spare time. I have massively improved IT / FT2 compatibility, so if a tune still plays wrong in OpenMPT, I'm the person to bother!

I also started the official German OpenMPT Wiki together with cubaxd. If you can read German and are an OpenMPT user (or want to become one), this is a place you should definitely go for. A comprehensive list of features, effects and how-tos, easily extensible by you, thanks to the wiki system!



Other programming work
I've also written some useful tools. One that may be of your interest is Mod Library. It helps you keeping track of your module collection. Supports many popular formats!
The programming is multilingual (currently German and English)

Saga Musix: Thanks man :D

Re: I have upgraded your account to an artist account so any future modules you can directly claim as your own while uploading them.

Re: Alright! I'm now in the waiting for the first module to be attached to the archive, and I'll let you know about potential linkage of that module to the account :D

Re: Hello there! Yes, the wording may be a bit confusing or too harsh, but anything that you have made yourself, including remixes, should be assigned to your artist account.

Re: Whassup! I've been planning on uploading most of my tracks into TMA since I've been making music for months... although I could use a little inquiry: I'm kinda interested in how the artist account works, however, I'm a little weirded out: I mostly do covers of various songs, some of which may be situated to copyright. If in case that happens, does those modules also have the chance to be assigned to an artist account or otherwise?

Thank you for your contribution and tips! On the first track, also I doubted at the time, but decided to drop by to explain the why of that "nirvana". (No fix in Renoise, because it seemed to me more natural). Also, thank you again! ;))

ASIKWUSpulse: Hey, I think just dropping the volume a little bit more would have helped - it should not alter the characteristics of the sample at all.

Re: Hi, thanks for reviewing my module (Samba Cone Disco if you don't remember). The sample of instrument 12 is for me a quite unused sample, due to it being very loud as you said, something I directly noticed when I created it, but had no clue how to make quieter without ruining the characteristics. There's a harmonic with some sub-harmonics one octave above the ground tone that is peaking. In this case, it was thrown in on the fly in music making progress, which means I tried the easy-solutions, which itself means dropping the global volume of the sample a little :D

Saga Musix: Ok I'm so sorry. Just keep doing what you're doing.

Re: I really cannot tell you any more precise estimate than what I already said.
