Hey, I've been gone for a long time, I got cursed, still cursed, living with aliens who eat hardddrives now, fuck god.

 

anyway, anyone have cool software links?

here's one I found that's pretty awesome, it uses Csound to make VST:

it works on w32 w64 android OSX linux

 

uses SVG for the interfaces too

Yeah it seems pretty nice. The last time I tried CSound this wasn't finished, though. Have to try it out again. Thanks for the hint.

Not sure if you guys are into music software for portable devices.

I definitely recommend the following...if you can use renoise, it will be easy to learn these:

 

MILYTRACKER (PDA):

 

http://milkytracker.....org/downloads/

 

Its Fastracker 2 in the palm of your hand...good for getting creative with single cycle waveforms.

(which can be generated or hand drawn in the program itself, use 64 or 128 samples in length for perfect tuning)

 

SUNVOX (windows, mac, linux, ios, android, pda):

 

http://www.warmplace.ru/soft/sunvox/

 

A great tracker software which focusses on synthesis and sound design in a modular environment...Its a little like Pure Data in a way, but easier to use.

 

G-STOMPER (android):

 

http://www.planet-h....stomper-studio/

 

A very nice electribeish sampling drum machine with automation and effects plus a great synth with sequencer called VA-Beast.

 

LITTLE GAME PARK TRACKER (PSP):

 

A very unique tracker similar to early C64 trackers in that it uses tables to create timbres, intricate arps etc...very much like renoise phrases at 1LPB at extreme high BPM...it has a wave scanning command for morphng textures. Particularly nice with a sample called MONOWAVE.wav.

 

http://littlegptrack...om/download.php

 

The monowave sample is downloadable from here:

 

http://hexawe.net/compos/monorave/

 

You will need half byte loader from wololo.net to run Little Game Park Tracker (as it is non-official PSP software, unlicensed by sony)

Get it here:

 

http://wololo.net/hbl/

 

These are all great because you can go to the park (or on a road trip or something), work on music all day without being stuck in front of your computer, then come back and load up all your work into renoise for further structuring and tweaking, arranging.

 

Also for more advanced sound designers, Pure Data might be worth a shot, but if I'm honest its too advanced for me for the moment...steep learning curve.

I love SunVox for one thing that I think could be a great added feature in Renoise. The ability to play samples on the pitched keyboard as you preview them. Also the modular thing is quite Reaktorish in nature and its quite intuitive though gets boring fast, nothing beats just loading samples and banging beats out. The tracker input though is kinda slow once you get used to the Renoise way of doing things. Milkytracker is a nice older FT2 simulator of sorts for the Android phone and iPad. But the UI does not scale well and its againa very slow medium if 'speed' is what is the USP for tracking. The mouse pointer interface does not do anything for me. Caustic App is far better for real electronic and EDM production with very quality sounds and great pattern based sequencing.

Milkytracker works better on PDA.

 

G-stomper is great as well. If you like Caustic, its quite similar in some ways but instead of having many synths it has one big one with lots of parameters and the drum machine part of it is more like an electribe. Nice design.

@garrett: Ya I totally agree with those points. I tired GStomper once possibly, and I think I like it, but I paid and downloaded Caustic and its been really nice with what I want out of it

oh man, i remember milkytracker, that program is why i'm using renoise now. i used to take milkytracker on a USB and try to produce stuff on the school computers before i ever learned about renoise.

There's been lots of good trackers. I started in the early c64 days and there were loads of tracker programs, but most were pretty bad. Many good composers wrote their own tracker (or had someone do it for them). But things got better thru Amiga, then I started using Scream Tracker on PC after trying out a lot of others.  But now Renoise is here, and it's awesome. In fact, it's a bit too complex for me at the moment. Time to work through the vids.

Hey, could anybody tell me, please, how the license for Caustic works (for Android), I never bought stuff from Google Store so just don't know this things. As far as I can understand it should be linked to my Google account, so if I change the phone someday, or get a tablet will it stay then?

 

ADDED: just found on the G-Stomper website FAQ, I guess it is similar all around:

 

Do I have to pay again to install a paid G-Stomper app on another device?

No, you don’t have to pay for it again.

The ownership of a paid G-Stomper app is bound to the Google Play account which you have used to buy it. If you want to install a paid G-Stomper app on another device (when switching to a new phone for example), simply attach the same Google Play account (the one you have used to buy G-Stomper) to the new device. Once this is done, you can download the app without getting charged again.

As addition to the list of cool software I want to promote my most favorite soft synth - the FXpansion Strobe 2 (not free, quite expensive). First, it is the most analog sounding synth I know in existence, the simulation algorithms are the most advanced from what I know (especially the filters), but what even more important is the design: overall the front panel is very straightforward and recognizable, very simple but in a clever way, but the main gem is it's "modulation matrix". It is not so straightforward at all and need some time to read the manual and to understand how it works, but it is totally worth it. There are lots of very unique "sources" and "destinations" for modulations, like voices, unison voices, gate order, pitch, etc. (as a modulations source, hard to explain, you should experiment by yourself), lots of different randomizers which you can use both in a subtle or huge way, overall creating very unique behaviors. Note that it is quite difficult to learn and to understand from the first approach but then it is extremely fast and easy to use, so don't skip it. It all like in some way a Reaktor type of stuff but without virtual wires. So you can set it to play one voice in Right channel, another in the Left one (or randomly distributed, or, say, evenly distributed), and all, say, odd (or even) notes can also be heavily altered, all done super fast in a couple of clicks. Much more flexible than popular Massive or Serum VSTs. It is done in a super clever way, so you can both easily control it and visualize what is modulated and to what extend, but not in a way that you can just start using it right away as something familiar.

ADDED: just found on the G-Stomper website FAQ, I guess it is similar all around:

The Google store is just like any other online store. You have to first link your credit or debit card to your account. This is initiated once you click the Buy button (the green button with the price in numbers) or install via the app's in-app purchases features. You basically get taken to a new page and you have to enter your data. The thing to remember about purchases is that it stays with your associated account only. So if you juggle through many Google accounts, your currently selected one will be the access point for your purchases. You won't be able to install your purchased app from another Google account even on the same phone. All your orders are stored in your orders and payments page of your account settings. Once purchased you can install it in another device or phone and log on to the same account where you purchased from and just install the app's as a regular download. The Buy buttons (price tags) will automatically change to install and it is a one click process.

On your Android device go to Play Store-> Account-> Order History to view all related purchases. The drop-down menu on the left menu pane top end lists all the active Google accounts on your device.

For Caustic type 'Caustic Unlock Key' in the search bar to reach the link directly without opening from the Caustic app. Though preferably its also recommended to get to the buy link via the in app purchase feature, just in case. Bugs sometimes might happen though I tried it both ways with other softwares and it works either way. You might have to restart your app though if you are bypassing the app's inbuilt feature.
