Hello, my name is Eardryer
« on: 17:08, 15 December 21 »
Hello!
I have owned an Amstrad CPC for several years, mostly using it to run games and demos. I always wanted to compose some AY tunes but never gave a try. It's time to change that  8)
I have zero experience into music composition (all platforms included) so my first tries will certainly be poor. I hope that people around here will give me their opinion to make me progressing.
Any musicians using Arkos Tracker 2 here?

Hello, mate, and welcome! Great nickname!


Arkos Tracker 2 is super easy and user-friendly, but you should have at least some tracker experience.

Do you know where I could find a tutorial to compose a chiptune step by step? (not a tracker manual, but a tutorial to compose)

(if ever such a tutorial doesn't exist, is it possible that an experienced musician explains me the worst points on my music try, and what and how I can improve myself? I would be very grateful for that)

On the original topic, the article pgs 42-44 in this ACU gives a very good intro to translating traditional music to the psg -

https://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/ACU_Issue_12,_1990

Use BASIC to try out the concepts!
