vxxy has announced the production of the DCM8, a dedicated chip tune drum machine.
We announce the production of our first electronic musical instrument the DCM8 Digital Chiptune Drum machine, born from a desire to have chip music sounds in an easy to use studio desk sequencer and live performance package after wearing out our Gameboys with manic button bashing, and also wanting a few other sound styles thrown in for good measure.
64 Patterns in 8 banks of 8.
Selectable 8, 16 or 32 steps per pattern with half, normal and double speed timing scales.
Adjustable instrument volume, decay and pitch on per step basis.
Dual channel architecture with wide range of retro and unique preset sounds generated by a scripted synthesis engine.
255 digitally synthesized chip sounds, consisting of 223 presets and 32 user generated patches.

8 Songs with 128 pattern selections.
Clear, Copy and Paste 8, 16 or 32 steps between patterns.

AfroDJMac has released Gameboy Glitches and Synth, a free Ableton Live Rack.
8 bit squelches and bleeps lovers come see this weeks installment of my Free Weekly Ableton Live Racks series!!
**Thanks to BedroomProducersBlog who assembled these fine samples using an old black Nintendo Gameboy running the LSDJ software, and who were kind enough to allow me to share with you my creations using those samples. [Visit BPB, it's a great resource for information, releases, samples, etc.]**
This week, since I’m feeling generous after some cyber-love from Ableton and Create Digital Music, you get two free Ableton Instrument racks. The first is a drum rack loaded with all of these fine Gameboy glitchy noises, drops, risers, arps, and UFO sounds. Secondly is a playable synth based on one of those wonderfully gritty samples. Both are racked up in an exciting little effect rack that helps you finesse or destroy these sounds to suit your own personal productions!
Bedroom Producers Blog has released Game Boy LSDJ Noise And Glitch Sessions, the fifth pack in a series of free sample collections.
Ok, here’s a brand new free bpb sample pack. It’s called Game Boy LSDJ Noise And Glitch Sessions, and contains sounds recorded from a black Game Boy running LSDJ software. I’ve created the sounds using LSDJ’s awesome synth engine, combined with the built-in pattern editor.
You’ll probably notice that the included sounds are much more aggressive than what you’d expect to hear in a standard Game Boy video game, for example. I was going for a glitchy, noisy vibe, and the LSDJ synth engine turned out as a great tool for creating such sounds.
All included sounds are 100% clean recordings of the Game Boy sound output, no post FX added. This is also my first sample set recorded in 24bit.
The Game Boy LSDJ Noise And Glitch Sessions sample pack is available as a free download.
