I enjoy making chiptunes, remixing samples and creating my own sample packs.
I use Milkytracker for my fake chip stuff, but sometimes I emulate sound chips from obscure video game systems that not many people heard about.
As the person who's reading this bio could be saying to himself "self, how is djmaximum running all these applications like famitracker and beepola on his Macbook Pro?"
I use wine to run those applications.
You can find me at other places.

[13:06] <djmaximum> last night I've managed to get the NSF to sound pretty close to the IT module I created in OpenMPT
[13:07] <gtap> oh nice
[13:08] <gtap> this for the nintendo trilogy djmax?
[13:08] == Jiyoshi [~Melon@2605:e000:a418:4100:16e:88d5:e82:bd45] has joined #botb
[13:09] <djmaximum> yes
[13:15] <Marysia> oh come on
[13:15] <Marysia> you cant do slides with vst2413?
[13:17] <djmaximum> it's a shame SuperNSF doesn't support periodic noise
[13:20] <Marysia> gtap: why you no love me anymo
[13:20] <gtap> ?????????????//////////////
[13:21] <Marysia> now thats a reaction i didnt expect
[13:21] <gtap> school has started :)
[13:21] <Marysia> .save 20:20 < gtap> ?????????????//////////////
[13:21] <Marysia> oh right
[13:21] <gtap> love is hard when energy is 0
[13:22] <gtap> i saw that you have a joymasked megadrive
[13:22] <gtap> quite the mod haha
[13:23] <gtap> have you thought about making a toystory-mod-vgm for fm synth
[13:23] <Marysia> 1. isnt that abusing the format
[13:24] <Marysia> 2. cant submit the ips patch for the rom, cant submit a 10M+ vgm
[13:24] <gtap> oh bum
[13:24] <Midori_P4> djmaximum why would you track for chip in a sample based tracker?
[13:25] <Midori_P4> isn't it easier to just use famitracker
[13:25] <Marysia> supernsf is a thing
[13:25] <Marysia> (allows you to use up to 4 CHANNELS OF SAMPLES)
[13:25] <gtap> dori my guess is that he already had it around and then decided it would be a good proj to convert
[13:25] <Midori_P4> ahhh right
[13:25] <gtap> just like raz did with his hes 'test'
[13:25] <Marysia> expense of no instruments and only vrc6 being available as an expansion
[13:25] <Midori_P4> Marysia what, 4 PCM ahcnnels on famicom?
[13:26] <Midori_P4> wt actual f
[13:26] <Marysia> it takes a shitton of cpu time
[13:26] <Marysia> but you can do that
[13:26] <Midori_P4> ah nice
[13:26] <Marysia> b00daw made a supernsf entry for a famicompo mini iirc
[13:26] <Midori_P4> i always thought Fami had just one PCM channel
[13:26] <Marysia> it has one DPCM channel
[13:27] <Marysia> but as everything in the world of computing
[13:27] <Marysia> if it makes clicks, you can play sounds on it
[13:27] <gtap> xaimus did some for famicompo too
[13:28] <gtap> and presumably used it2nsf for all his other stuff haha
[13:29] <Marysia> my b
[13:29] <Marysia> it was madbrain
[13:29] <Marysia> google heim this by madbrain
[13:29] <Midori_P4> gtap, what tracker do you usually make your adlibs in
[13:29] <Marysia> it was fcm7
[13:29] <Midori_P4> ADT2 i guess
[13:29] <Midori_P4> trying to get hand of that damned thing
[13:29] <gtap> adlib tracker 2 but i had a brief spell of scream tracker 3 a couple of years ago
[13:30] <Midori_P4> i don't really like its UI, but still, there's hardly anything better to track for OPL3 in
[13:30] <Midori_P4> ah nice
[13:30] <jangler> it seems like the best yeah
[13:30] <Midori_P4> get hang**
[13:30] <gtap> schismtracker would mean no dosboxery though :)
[13:30] <Marysia> >makes a tracker that partially supports adlib
[13:30] <Marysia> >advertises someone else
[13:31] <jangler> schism has opl3 at least mostly implemented in the engine but there's no UI for it
[13:31] <Midori_P4> gtap ther's ADT with SDL on topfor windows too
[13:31] <Midori_P4> there's*
[13:31] <gtap> dori i neer got that to work on any win machine i tried
[13:31] <Midori_P4> huh
[13:31] <gtap> stuck with dos version
[13:31] <Midori_P4> weird, both version work nice for me
[13:31] <Marysia> wtf gtap
[13:31] <Marysia> my first encounter with adt was on win
[13:31] <Midori_P4> though i use the DOS version, since it's mre responsive on this old PC
[13:32] <gtap> bear in mind i had vista for like the longest time
[13:32] <Midori_P4> even though it's emulated via DosBox
[13:32] <Midori_P4> heh, never used that OS, my sis only had it for a brief period of time
[13:32] <gtap> would not recommend haha
[13:32] == ViL_MP [~ViLXDRYAD@186-104-4-81.baf.movistar.cl] has quit [Read error: No route to host]
[13:33] <Midori_P4> but that notebook she ran it on was incapable of runiing it smoothly
[13:33] == ViL_MP [~ViLXDRYAD@186-104-4-81.baf.movistar.cl] has joined #botb
[13:34] <gtap> there are some good adt2 youtube stuff out there for some things, though they goes perhaps into more detail than it needs
[13:35] <BotB> Carajeej reaches Level 6 Playa with 173pnts
[13:35] <gtap> i think they assume you want to make incredibly insane diode milliampere stuff
[13:35] <Midori_P4> now i'm just trying to figure out how do i decrease edit step to 0
[13:35] <gtap> lol im not sure
[13:35] <Midori_P4> so the cursor mark doesn't move to next line upon entering the note
[13:36] <gtap> theres a jam mode i think. which allows you to just play about and have no movement
[13:36] <Midori_P4> but does it enter the notes into the pattern?
[13:36] <gtap> no
[13:36] <Midori_P4> i can jam in the instrument editor, if anything
[13:36] <Midori_P4> dang
[13:37] <Marysia> gtap
[13:37] <Marysia> open up famitracker
[13:37] <gtap> whichone
[13:37] <jangler> haha
[13:37] <Marysia> doesnt matter
[13:37] <Marysia> open up famitracker
[13:37] <Marysia> to the right of order editor theres "edit settings"
[13:37] <gtap> ok
[13:37] <Marysia> set step to 0
[13:37] <Marysia> and tahts what dori wants
[13:38] <gtap> oh i know what he wants but i dont know the shortcut for it
[13:38] <Midori_P4> Marysia LMAO
[13:38] <Midori_P4> you went through the whole process of explaining it on FT's example
[13:39] <Marysia> is simplk
[13:39] <Midori_P4> when gtap got my idea from the beginning
[13:39] <Midori_P4> yeh it's just comlicaetd [tm] in ADT
[13:39] <Midori_P4> complicated*
[13:40] <Midori_P4> OpenMPT still unbeatable UX-wise
[13:40] <djmaximum> I'm wondering if there are any modifications for SuperNSF's sound engine
[13:42] <Marysia> sameple size ofc
[13:43] <Marysia> oh
[13:43] <Marysia> someone covered master of puppets on speccy
[13:50] <djmaximum> someday there will be an IT2GBS converter
[13:50] <gtap> there kind of is
[13:51] <Marysia> jesus
[13:51] <Marysia> im glad i can play a 2010 demo maxed out
[13:52] <gtap> http://battleofthebits.org/arena/Entry/CONVERSIONCORE+AND+SELFHATRED.gbs/25058/ it appears that it doesnt come recommended though

[13:52] <gtap> it2nsf2ftm2gbmc
[13:54] <gtap> also did you know masuda originally started off the gb pokemon soundtracks on an amiga https://www.gamefreak.co.jp/blog/dir_english/?p=185
[13:54] <gtap> so conversioncore again
[13:56] <Marysia> alberto gonzales did conversion core too
[13:56] <Marysia> i think
[13:56] <gtap> oh yeah! from a speccy the madman
[13:56] == FormosaTBM [~formo@1-162-69-248.dynamic-ip.hinet.net] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[13:57] <Marysia> i uh
[13:57] <Marysia> iirc infogrames would ask him to port shit from snes to smd (?)
[13:57] <Marysia> and he had a snes development kit to listen to the music
[13:57] <Marysia> but most of the time he would make his own shit anyway
[13:57] <gtap> oh yeah, but for game boy stuff it originated from the speccy
[13:58] <Midori_P4> 20:50:05 <djmaximum> someday there will be an IT2GBS converter
[13:58] <Midori_P4> me do want
[14:04] <djmaximum> gtap, have you tried using Carillon Editor?

IRC log 2

<B00daW> mr maximum
[16:04] <djmaximum> Hay B00daw
[16:06] <B00daW> you're becoming the other chip champion, eh?
[16:06] <B00daW> you like your tools
[16:12] <djmaximum> If an NSF+ ohb happens to come up sometime soon, I'll be doing a SuperNSF entry with the VRC6.
[16:15] <ViLXDRYAD> castlevania
[16:17] <DeltaRazero> but will you actually USE what supernsf was made for
[16:18] <B00daW> (being hacked into an MMC5 PCM output)
[16:19] <DeltaRazero> supernsf update to use MMC5 pcm :thinking: :thinking: :thinking:
[16:22] <djmaximum> The thing is, the VRC6 saw is very quiet compared to the other sound channels.
[16:22] <DeltaRazero> use the post mixing macro then
[16:23] <B00daW> DeltaRazero: there is a Python script in the source that you edit to a 8-bit max value
[16:23] <B00daW> run it to get the 8-bit volume saturation table
[16:23] <DeltaRazero> o
[16:23] <DeltaRazero> reminder i still need to try to compile from soruce
[16:23] <DeltaRazero> source
[16:23] <B00daW> 2.) change writes to $4011 DAC to $5011 MMC5 DAC in the NSF
[16:24] <DeltaRazero> ohhh
[16:24] <DeltaRazero> damn dawg
[16:24] <B00daW> 3.) add the MMC5 expansion bit in the NSF header
[16:24] <B00daW> i can't code, but i can hack things
[16:24] <B00daW> the python hack is just changing the value of 127 to 255
[16:24] <DeltaRazero> I still donĀ“t get why i couldnt get it compiled
[16:25] <B00daW> then you search for the 7-bit LUT (look up table)
[16:25] <B00daW> and replace it with the 8-bit one
[16:25] <B00daW> so volume values of MMC5 will reach 255
[16:25] <B00daW> instead of 127
[16:25] <DeltaRazero> wait
[16:25] <DeltaRazero> u know that 4x pcm downgrades how much bits u can use
[16:25] <DeltaRazero> sounding more saturated
[16:26] <DeltaRazero> does this mean 4x pcm on mmc5 will sound less shit
[16:26] <B00daW> you'll also, in turn, need to mix your pulse, tri, and noise values a little higher than PCM
[16:26] <B00daW> so that PCM isn't super fucking loud
[16:26] <B00daW> well you get an extra bit of PCM, yes
[16:26] <B00daW> as of now there is 8-bits of PCM stored within the code but it's filtered down
[16:27] <B00daW> this opens it up to 8-bits; with MMC5
[16:27] <djmaximum> I tried the mixing feature earlier, but it made the other channels quieter.
[16:27] <B00daW> $4011 is 7-bit PCM with the last bit for delta modulation of DPCM
[16:27] == Elrinth [~Elrinth@95.109.64.144] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
[16:28] <B00daW> it doesn't say it, but i'm sure you know now that all samples must be mono
[16:28] <B00daW> supernsf doesn't like stereo samples
[16:28] <retrodpc> ^
[16:29] <B00daW> given this manipulation, djmaximum, you can have 2a0x+VRC6+MMC5 PCM
[16:30] <B00daW> also i do believe the single channel NSF export of supernsf is broken
[16:30] <B00daW> only 2, 3, and 4 channel output works
[16:30] <B00daW> of PCM mixing
[16:31] <Fragmare> well i guess it's time to go rip the wavetables out of PCE Afterburner
[16:32] <Marysia> supernsf + n163 + fds for U L T I M A T E S A M P L I N G
[16:33] <B00daW> Fragmare: share your latest POKEY cumshot
[16:34] <Marysia> dont cum on pokeys
[16:34] <B00daW> Marysia: you're absolutely right about that
[16:34] <DeltaRazero> yeah 1channel pcm is broken
[16:34] <B00daW> + VRC7
[16:34] <Marysia> vrc7 cant do sampling
[16:34] <DeltaRazero> thats why i wanted to try and compile the latest source
[16:34] <B00daW> fuck samples
[16:34] <B00daW> we're talking quality
[16:34] <B00daW> M50805 added would be some cool shit too
[16:35] <DeltaRazero> Fragmare could u sent me those later
[16:35] <Marysia> i mean fuck all of this
[16:35] <Marysia> just slap a 2610b on a cart
[16:35] <B00daW> that's a phone?
[16:35] <Marysia> ym2610b
[16:35] <Marysia> neo geo soundchip
[16:36] <Marysia> 6x4opFM
[16:36] <B00daW> 3 SSG too
[16:36] <Marysia> 6x 18.5khz PCM
[16:36] <djmaximum> Also the macros in SuperNSF don't work right, they only play once.
[16:36] <Marysia> 1x PCM with definable freq
[16:37] <Marysia> those 3SSG are YM2149
[16:37] <DeltaRazero> yeah i noticed that too djmaximum
[16:38] <Marysia> so its packing 6 FM channels, 7 sample channels, AND AY
[16:38] <DeltaRazero> again wanted to see if latest source i could find has it fixed
