Preview of the new YM-DIGITAL album

Postby yerzmyey » Mon Dec 21, 2015 12:58 pm

This is a new song composed by my friend Factor6 for our YM-DIGITAL band (two nerds playing music on ATARI 520ST machines) -
http://ym-digital.i-demo.pl/YM_Digital- ... alling.mp3
It's a teaser of the new YM_D's album.

As usual - it's pure ATARI 520ST with its ym2149 chip.

This time we have here 4 channels of digital sound in 16,4Khz frequency.

Composed on "ST ProTracker 2.1".

Recorded from real hardware.

PS: A very cool 'funky' song.

Actually the same goes to me. :)
It's because emulators (their digi-sound from YM is very bad). The previous album has been made over 2 years ago, now.
So this time Factor6 sent me the songs, and I had to play them from my ST to remind myself that it actually DOES sound good, hahah. :)

Are all ST emulators really that bad?

Get the tunes submitted to the SNDH repository and maybe they will get auto-generated from real hardware?

Like I mentioned, the emulated digi-sound from YM is very bad.
Normal synthetic sound from emulators is usually very good, in my opinion.

But anyway, as for the SNDH Repository, Adam wrote there that "all tunes were played on ATARI STE, without any emulation".

Kind regards.

it sounds very good. I guess it's an Atari STE for having such a good sound for samples?

Hi Farvardin, how are You.
We make music only with Atari ST machines. So it is YM2149. :)
And what's might be surprising for You, it is actually the lowest quality I was able to use for recording. :)
If the song worked on DigiComposer, HexTracker or 50Khz_Player, it would be muuuuuuch better. :)
Sadly those programs have several problems with MOD compatibility, so I had to use the ST ProTracker 2.1.

PS: I already heard more Factor6's songs for the album and it will be really cool. :)
