Software News   Software News : Klystrack - A new chiptune tracker for AOS4!
   posted by spotUP on 14-Dec-2010 22:07:50 (3906 reads)
About Klystrack

Klystrack is a synthetic tracker similiar to the wellknown AHX/THX tracker
by Abyss. It produces a C64/SID like sound.

How klystrack differs from traditional trackers

It synthesizes sounds on the fly.
This allows more flexible sounds since the parameters can be changed in
real time.




For a quite long time, especially on platforms where space was not an
issue, it was common for a tracker to have patterns consisting of all
available channels. That is, each pattern had e.g. four channels side
by side and this required unneeded duplication of data.

For example, even if one channel constantly played the same sequence
(think a drum track), it had to be copied to each new pattern.
In klystrack a pattern has only one channel of data. Thus, you can
reuse the same pattern much more freely.

The patterns can also be located at any position in the sequence,
making it possible for two patterns of different length syncopate.
This is not possible in a traditional tracker since all patterns
usually are of the same length and begin at the same location for
each channel.

Klystrack is written by Kometbomb.
The AmigaOS 4.x compile was done by Spot/Up Rough.

Cool. So this is like the OctaMED idea of using synth sounds? That should produce some very clean sounding modules. And easily upgradable to 32-bit+ samples.

I also like the idea of how it efficiently uses patterns. I had a similar idea for a music program I wanted to write. It would have let set up drum patterns then give the sequence a name or what not and you would have built up a song by dynmamically placing all the sequences in place as well as eny extra parts like solos alongside it.

Sadly, "Channels X MultiTracker" was never written. But this is!

no morphos version from me, but with the changes commited to the svn it should be a simple compile.

It's a bit slow to startup, but man, more waveforms than AHX, ring modulation, bit crushing, stereo panning, reverb, samples support... looks like AHX on steroids, I like it :)

varthall, indeed =)
and it has sample support so you can fake c64 samples if you bitcrush them.
one could make turbo out run sounding tracks. =)
