Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 8 [Tracks 21 – 30]

Posted by

Every year, ChipWIN releases a compilation of 51 of the best chipmusic tracks of the year, and every year it continues to impress. In case you haven’t been tuning in over the course of the last week, here on The ChipWIN Blog we also happen to review every track from the compilation. A daunting task indeed, but it’s our way of saying thanks to the many people involved in this continuously expanding project. Shall we?

A Square Meal: ‘Sine Sleep Session EP’ by Saitone

Posted by

When a long day finally comes to an end, there are just a few things we can say are ‘universally pleasant’: taking your shoes off, laying on the bed with your face on the pillow, drinking or eating something, playing some music, or taking a shower to name a few. Thinking on those little pleasures sometimes is the reason we hold ourselves together and keep going through a hard day. This time I want to bring to you a tremendous EP that would be useful in a situation like the one I just described – I’m talking about ‘Sine Sleep Session EP’ by Saitone, released through Future Disorder.

THE CLOVER AWARDS: 2018

Posted by

The new year is in full swing – MAGFest has come and gone, Chipwrecked is preparing for another great lineup, and we’ve already got a few fun 2019 chiptune releases! But such an active community also makes for a lot you may have missed, and I’d like to give the last year a final sendoff before moving onto this one. I’m proud of the work I did in 2018, but there was a lot I didn’t get to talk about as well. This scene is bursting with music to enjoy and appreciate, so while I can only cover a small portion of it, I’d like to try and spotlight some tunes that deserve the attention.

Naturally, I will be doing this in the silliest way possible.

Rhyphte’s Remarks: Why Collabs Are Pretty Cool

Posted by

A lot of people make the bassline (huehue) assumption that multiple musicians working together is automatically a band. While the vast majority of multi-man musical acts do come in the tried-and-true form of live-performance groups, the picture is much blurrier in the realm of electronic music characterized by digital production and playback. Due to the relative ease of collaborating piecewise with an individual thousands of miles away via the internet, you see things like features, remixes, and group handles all over the place. While this article is mostly aimed at getting into the “collab” side of things, most of what’s covered can be applied to anything similar enough.

So let’s dive into what a collab actually is, how it can help you grow, and how to manage the development of one!

The Unicorn Princess Royally Reviews ‘2011’ by WMD

Posted by

Happy October, folks!

Just as the month comes to an end, I bring to you a cool little surprise.  Released on September 29, WMD is combining their ability to create atmospheric sound textures and presenting a record paired with straight up chiptune.  It’s been quite a while since something like this has been released, and judging by the comments on their Bandcamp, I’m not the only one excited about it.

Charla tecnológica de Paul – LSDJ 5.0.0 – Nuevos comandos. ¡[F]tW! (Parte uno)

Posted by

Artículo Original de PainPerdu. Traducción al Español por Pixel Guy.

Hola, gente. Aquí Paul con una nueva entrega de charla tecnológica sobre LSDj. Hoy daremos un vistazo a la versión 5.0.0 de LSDj y a todas las cosas buenas que puso sobre la mesa. ¡Abróchense los cinturones!

Con la versión 5.0.0, un importante número cerrado, se comenzó a ganar el interés de la comunidad y la gran ola de actualizaciones comenzó a tener más y más retroalimentación. Lo divertido del asunto es que, dejando de lado el que es un número cerrado ­–5.0– , y aún cuando fue en esta versión que se introdujeron algunas buenas mejoras, no fue lo suficientemente significativa para la transformación que aún se estaba llevando a cabo. Johan K. solo añade un 0.0.1 a cada nueva versión, sin importar que tan significativos sean los cambios. ¡Hemos sido ENGAÑADOS!

No me malentiendan, estas mejoras también fueron importantes, muy útiles y adelantadas a su tiempo. ¡No todos los días el LSDj tiene dos nuevos comandos para jugar con ellos!

En el artículo de hoy hablaré, principalmente, acerca de las mejoras en el comando F.

Para información más precisa en cuanto a cómo funcionan los comandos en LSDJ, pueden tener una buena cucharada del viejo RTFM dando clic aquí para tener acceso a todos los manuales de las versiones relevantes.
