happy spinger and duck propogation hour
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

OrdinateIsDead which do you want? .669 (which is covered by s3xmodit but could maybe be its own format) or "i don't want: any fucking module files, ever"? Seriously: Composer 669 is a tracker module format.

well trackers more than modules
but maybe people consider any file made by a tracker a module
not sure if 'module' is only in reference to the old school

Oh sweet, MT-32!
...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

[edit]
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 don't see something under a minute as a joke if it's interesting somehow, though i feel like if you wanted to, you could probably make something longer pretty quickly if you lower whatever quality standards you have.

Length is not a measure of quality! If you can convey everything you want under one minute that is actually quite an achievement. Some of my favorite songs on here are short ones!

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

unrelated but re: azura's comment, there was a period of time where i did at least half my music writing on lunch break

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?

You go back to the "info and rules" section and there's the resubmit button next to the category that you want to update.

Thanks! I guess I should be grateful I can even make music at all. One day I'll be as talented as some of you guys! :D
