you're listening to radio "offtopic", zed on air..
« on: May 09, 2002, 01:01:57 AM »
goooooood morning, Vietnam!

today we'll talk about modules. i know there are only 2-3 persons who knows about it here. but anyways...

yesterday i found that new mo3 encoder is out and that stuff rocks! plus, new version of xmplayer.

okay, if you don't know what is "mo3" means...

mo=module, 3=mp3. and whole mo3 means a module (xm, mod, etc) with mp3 packed intruments. so, it makes modules very small in size, but with a good quality.

in new version of mo3 encoder we've got ogg support and stuff...

i've checked the packing, and that's really cool. i've tryed to pack my most big module (remix of Carmen Queasy) it's 58 megs, and it's became 5 meg in mo3, but sound still not bad, and the file is still editable, because you can freely unpack mo3 back to xm.

secondly, xmplayer - really cool, small and nice. the only things isn't so good is playlist navigation, but anyways, the player is great.

and all that stuff is freeware!

Only programms I know are Buzz, Modedit, Modtracker, Fasttracker the best tracker in the mid90's, Ultratracker.
Of course they are all very very old, but fun anyway.
Yeah, you caught me, this was just namedropping, in fact I  know about nothing about modern trackers.
If I would have the time to, I'd love to organise me the good Ultratracker and get into it again, but I don't have the time nor the money for a second PC and the card required for it.
Besides, I'm kinda fed up with learning things at the moment, I had to learn every important bit of Korg Karma-programming and I'm about to overwrite old memories with new ones already.
Don't even have time for sidejobs anymore.
Okay, I did again, I screwed the main-theme, I offtopiced' an offtopic-thread.

Please continue with the original maneuver, Captain Zed
Over & out

The Karma is a nice instrument, but one the sort that let's *you* do everything, or *it* does everything for you.
For example, there are four buttons you can use to trigger complete presetted chords. Drum-tracks, bass tracks, melody, textures, even vocals. It does everything for you, if you let it. Don't let it! I wonder in how many new charty songs this crap will appear. I still remember Blu Mar Ten using the preset-soundcheck-chord that most Roland synthies have.
It was annoying, this chord was made for the user to check soundlevel and panning and fx and so on...
And yes, you can use something like a tracker with the Karma, it of course has a built in sequencer and some other toys like that tracker like-thingie (in fact, it reminds me of the W-30's sequencer, to be honest) and a Karma-specific mode were you can access certain sounds to certain parts of (your own or presetted) compositions, but the clue is: You can modulate every single bit of every sound by using the little stick at the left and/or the reassigned keys from the clavier and/or some other keys. So you can use all your fingers at once to alter the sound. If you have full control over your fingers (+ absolute pitch, would be helpful) you can do the most weirdest things with a complete song at once you'll never even dream of.

Karma stands Kay Algorithmic Realtime Music Architecture and that long shit means it uses Stephen Kay's extravagant algorithms to create new sounds. That's what Korg was to make us believe. It's not thaaaaat special, but still an amazing instrument. I wish they would stop building such complex synthies, but use that good synthesis instead without all the additional crap like preset-goodies and 'here-and-there-details' you'll never need. Just the core please.
Modern workstation, but has a very very good sound.

Bad is, there's an update for a new operating system and I have to check it out as well.

yes, and that's a big transgression actually (at least at my territory), if i was a moderator here i'd ruin all the stuff and ban you!


Mhm, I renounce to ban myself.
Besides, I talked bull anyway, I still thought we were in your offtopic-area, so I didn't offtopiced anything, *mwuahahaha*
Okay.

yes, i'm also big fan of "private parts" movie...


Actually, it was related to the Captain Dread-adventures,
what is Private Parts? Sounds like a porn movie...
Still haven't seen Uranus Experiment.
I d/led some nice porn music, I used to relax to some smooth Bossa Nova or Samba when I come from work, but now that I discovered cheesy porno-music, I can TOTALLY relax.
Well, while it's pretty annoying if you have actual samples of the film in the music (you know...), it's just very slow and mostly even neutral music.
I still don't know how to tell the next chicks that I hear music
which is played in porno-films.

yeh, it seems it's a good synth... but i need to see and touch it to understand what are you talking about. maybe i'll get a chance to find and see some Korg's Triton and EA-1, i just found some dude around who owns these ones.
