Here is a song composed in VGM Music Maker. It is a highly experimental Sega Genesis Chiptune that will play as it sounds through actual hardware (samples et. al.)!
Warm yourselves this Winter with a cool Puertorican style island tune, as you walk the digital shores singing with Melodina, the lead FM vocal.
The intro is a recording of CSM (Complex Sinuisoidal Modulation) that I made note for note in FM Drive by Aly James. It is a hidden feature of the Sega Genesis to be able to synthesize voices. It sounds just awful, but it is cool that you can make the Sega Genesis talk and sing!
Can you figure out what Melodina is saying at the intro?
This song is 6:30m long. It does not loop like traditional shorter chiptunes. If you stop halfway, you will miss out on half of the song, and I have some cool solos at the end.
The mp3 will have the correct playing. The VGM file will not have FM playing from Channel 6. Whenever a sample plays in the VGM, FM will never be heard again. This is a bug in VGM Music Maker. So you may not hear a certain instrument, or the accordian will sound quieter on certain parts.
The French accordian, singing girl voice (Melodina), vibraphone, brass sectional, bass and snare drums, are all FM Synthesized.
The steel drums, seagulls, CSM voice, saxophone, violin, and flutes are all recorded samples.
