Because we are working very quiet on this, I haven't put any updates on the forum concerning our work on the 4 channel Music Tracker. So how are things going? ...
You all do know it's possible:
My biggest concern has always been the size of the player AND the songs. So STG and I have discussed this long enough to come to a certain point were we decided we have a format that is usable.
The play routine is finished ! hurray ! But it is still impossible to create music for this play routine
The hardest part has started with us creating an editor. STG was able to make a browser sound generator, not playing samples, but actually generate the exact same sound the Arduboy will. Once this was finished we need the actual editor and to be honest we didn't make much progress, until recently a good friend of mine joined our efforts.
So, we are creating an online editor, were you will be able to make/listen/export your music ready for use in your Arduboy (any Arduino) programs.
I'm going to show you a screenshot of the actual program WIP and probably will change a lot.
This is not a mock-up but the actual editor. Not much yet, but it gives a basic idea: channels, tracks and the part you don't see yet: a piano roll where you can click notes.
