Making Amstrad CPC music on CPC or PC

-

If you need to write some music for an Amstrad CPC program (either demo, game, etc...), you can do it either on an Amstrad CPC :

Or you can do it on a PC :

  • WYZTracker for windows (needs .NET v2.0) by Augusto Ruiz, an .AY (Amstrad and Spectrum) music creation utility using a pattern-based editor, spanish interface only at the moment, short english manual inside
  • Vortex Tracker II v1.0 beta 19, a Win32 PT3-editor, can load, play, edit PT1, PT2, PT3, STC, STP, SQT, ASC, PSC, PSM, FLS, GTR, FTC, FXM, AY (ZXAYAMAD) files and save them in PT3 format or in temporary text format. You can export modules into SNDH-format to play it on Atari ST, and into HOBETA (with player or without player), AY's ZXAYEMUL format, SCL or TAP to play it on Amstrad CPC ou ZX Spectrum, for more information go see Vortex tracker's website.

Also, it's possible without an emulator to listen to .YM, .AY and .AYM files with ZX Spectrum Computer Sound Chip Emulator (same address than above).

If you use other music tools, thanks to let me know so I can add informations here and in the comp.sys.amstrad.8bit FAQ).








Kangaroo Musique on Jamendo

-

I was just browsing on Jamendo when I did a research on the Amstrad keyword, and found the page of Kangaroo Musique, a well known musician on Amstrad scene. If you are fond of Amstrad CPC games music, hit the jamendo widget below (shockwave needed), but try his other albums too.

And if you are german or if your german isnt too rusty (mine is quite rusty), you can read Kangaroo blog.
