MB_play V0.2 Music Re-player Demo for FMPosted: Mon Apr 02, 2012 2:21 pm
For my entry for the code competition I ported a re-player from the MSX to SMS. The music is made with a tracker named 'MoonBlaster 1.4'. This tracker support simultaneous playback of channels over de MSX-MUSIC and MSX-AUDIO expansions. Creating a stereo effect. The MSX-MUSIC expansion is exactly the same FM chip as found in (some) SMS'es. The only difference is the detection and the IO ports.
For the SMS I removed the playback over MSX-AUDIO, PSG drum support and stereo settings.
I created a music demo to show you what the re-player is capable of in its current state. At the moment there are still issues found of which we are not certain where the error lies. Almost every emulator around gives different results. Mainly the drums (frequencies) are a bottleneck.
The music is created by John Hassink who was as kind to provide me with some great music!
The sources are included and free to use. But the music files are not included. I will make a tutorial on how to use the re-player in the near future (hopefully with an improved re-player).
[PS: MEKA probably gives the best sound results at the moment.]
[PS2: I am not a real coder. So feel free to have a laugh at the code. ;) ]
If you want to hear more music made by John. check out these videos:
