I’m really interested in learning this tracker, I actually downloaded it a little before you made this post. I have always wanted to make some 16bit music, so this should be fun. First question (as silly as it will sound) , where to I make new instruments? :P
second question, Where do I find the drums? Or make drums? or anything like that.

EDIT: nevermind. Watching a tutorial on youtube

Is there a good sample pack (specifically drums) anywhere, or should I just bite the bullet and rip some from a rom/audio?

Let me give you guys a sample pack that Groovemaster303 gave to me a while back. That should help you all to get started. I also have many synths and keyboards that I rip my own samples from. Remember, you can use anything for samples just as long as you make whatever you want to use into a wav file in mono :) .

On that note, if you guys rip some samples for use yourselves and want to share them with us feel free! More samples means more inspiration :D .

Just heard that collab, and I gotta say, it was sick.

I’m working on something now. I’m real new to the tracker system, so it’ll take time, but I’ve got the basic concept from tinkering with TFM. Let you know once it’s up?

Ha ha thanks man. I started with TFM too. That’s part of the reason I am as good as I am with VGMM now. Let me know when you have an idea and we’ll see what we can make together :) .

I have a loose template to start something on. I borrowed the hi-hat and the bass from another song and played with their settings some so they’re not too derivative. I’m gonna keep playing with it more so I’ll try to have a loose outline up by Friday or Saturday.

It’s kind of a loose Tom Morrello kind of groove.

Nice, looking forward to it. :)

Ok, here’s the rough draft to start on. I’ve got a few instruments and lines laid down, and some other ideas I can add on. I figured this was a good “starting point” for anyone to jump in at. (Alternatively, you can change the BPM to 500 for something that has a slightly better grove).

I’m still kind of lost on effects like pitch bends and whatnot, so its back to the tutorial for me.

Alright, now THIS is what I am talking about! A completely different perspective :) . That adjust to 500 BPM idea opened it up for me though. I haven’t extended it, but I think I have fleshed out what’s here a bit more to be really interesting while still keeping most of the core idea :) . That instrument with the long release, and that insane tracking speed is just enough out of my comfort zone to make me work my brain and I love the challenge :P .

Maybe looking at this will give you an idea on how to do slide leads with vibrato :) . Remember, there are 3 fx columns per channel so there are some cool combinations you can come up with. See what you think so far. I like it, sounds like a chilled cave tune to me now somehow.

I have a feeling this will be very different, in a good way :) .

Is there a reason it’s clipping like crazy on my computer?

/\ If it’s clipping, try adjusting the global volume under the preferences tab. I’m guessing it’s the sample sounds.

Great instrument refinement there as well. I’m guessing the 3 and 4 under fx are the vibrato and slide. Is 3 the slide then, I’m guessing? The echo effect sounds great as well, I was playing around with that buy wasn’t sure where to place the echo notes.

It’s shaping up well, so far. I’ll play with it some more and get something back in another day or two.

Yeah, he’s right. It has to do with the preferences tab. Just slide the global volume over until you don’t see red anymore LOL Yeah, 3 is slide and 4 is echo ;) . Cool. I look forward to it :D .

Also there is an FM/PSG slider. I tend to slide it all the way to the PSG side, because psg is so quiet.

Alright, upppppppppppppppppppppdate time. I got the slide part working and some working echo stuff (realized there’s no 4 command for it though), along with some new lead parts to sift through.

So, uhh :) . Groove and I went crazy again and we have gotten it to this point. I think we’re calling this one version 5. I think it’s pretty close to done if we want to loop and fade, or we could tack on an ending of some sort. Let me know what you think, and if you have any other ideas feel free to add them in or suggest things.

However, as you’ll be able to hear…a lot of things have been refined, changed, and extended :) . I think this down tempo groove will be a nice break from all the high energy stuff we have produced so far :) .

Sounds great! I think its good to go as is, pending a loop and fade out. It doesn’t overextend its welcome and sounds fresh up till the end.

If it’s good to go and ok with you guys, I’ll do the loop and fade out myself then throw it up on soundcloud later. Ok just to use “jredd” and “groovemaster303″ in as co-writers? (I hope I’m not too bold in wanting to do the last bit of editing and adding it to my sc.)

I’ll hold off for a little bit just to make sure, and in case someone thinks of something else to add.

Yeah, I’m not sure. If I think of an ending it could be just thing it needs. Either way I for one am not going to flip if you put it up somewhere :) . Then again, it’s not like that would stop me from putting a version with an ending either :P . Your call ha ha ha. I’ve gotten in contact with another guy who’s pretty good with VGMM and I think we may try a new tune together as well sometime. This could just turn out to be a cool little EP yet :D .
