my recent fave format is .IT but only allowing the GM.DLS instruments
that is probably too lenient for this challenging bunch of categories heehee

...and I forgot how I even made my .mid last time lol (was a terribly messy thing that involved renoise because that's how I drove Munt).

oh well, I'll figure it out

oh wew it's kinda dumb, it's a hideous mess of a setup involving midi-ox, a MIDI loopback device, and mf2tXP because midi-ox doesn't save standard midi files for some reason, unless I'm missing something obvious

have i ever asked this before:
is there a utility you can drag a midi on to and it'll take the loudest note in the tune and make it max volume, then proportionally and appropriately raise the volume of all the other notes? like a midi amplifier basically
i was testing the tune I made in doom and it sounded like it was a million miles away from me

i think it's weird when the initial submission period is like three weeks and then near the very end of it people say things like, "i might make something, but only if there's an extension" where an extension is one week. not everyone does this but i have witnessed it

Hm, I would suggest Caustic 3 or Sunvox for on the go music making, they are both for Android and IOS so you can take them wherever you go, and they are both very capable :)

Edit: speaking of caustic i have a question about the "bytebeat" category. Are you allowed to use more than one synth in your song for it or just one? Caustic has a bytebeat synth with 2 program slots, can I use both programs or just one?
