Bazaar Day 20

May 20, 2012 in Events, Site News

It’s Sunday, the day of illumination.


So far on the 2 previous Sundays, we put out the MicroMusic Artists Collection and a sweet interview with Solarbear. Today we’ve put out an interview with Ralp. Ralp was the final LSDJ Showdown judge we needed to interview, so we’ve celebrated by doing a post called “Meet the Judges“. We wouldn’t have the heart so stop there, so I figured now would be a good time to announce the newest addition to our fast growing micomusic section, Collections.

The collections archive contains well over 15,000 files, consisting of chipdisks, compilations, contest entries, albums, and just songs that go together in general, from all corners of the internet. Feel free to have a look through it, and check the index file for a complete listing of everything in there. Some of the collections may be technicaly incomplete, as I’ve removed all the stinking mp3s, wavs, oggs, etc. because we’re simply too good for that stuff.

We’re still in alpha version (pre-beta) of the archive, but once everything is in place, we’ll have over a quarter million songs in there, and I’ll integrate them all into real pages. In the meantime, feel free to download and listen to whatever you want in there, I know I have.


In other news…

Rytmik Retrobits for DSi

November 10, 2011 in Software

“Rytmik Retrobits is an application for creating rhythmical and melodic themes and for composing whole songs. Its user interface blends the fast and well-arranged interface of classic drum machines with flexible pattern interface of popular trackers and with modern sound library. It contains more than 180 carefully selected authentic retro sound samples of electronic drums, percussions, bass, melodic instruments and effects from 8-bit and 16-bit computers and classic consoles.

“Rytmik Retrobits is not only for playing with sounds; in the hands of a skilful musician it can become a serious musical instrument – a surprisingly powerful pocket music station. For the best musical experience we recommend connecting headphones or quality speaker system. You’ll become the king of retro party in no time…”

Rytmik Retrobits is currently available on DSiWare in Europe, with releases in North America and Japan to be announced.
