There’s a new version of Autotracker available, and it actually looks like it can still be improved.
Introducing Autotracker-Bu: http://gm.64pixels.org/stuff/atrk-bu.py.txt
- Makes music for you!
- Occasionally gets stuck in an infinite loop! (actually a bug that shouldn’t be a big fix)
- Sounds better than Autotracker-C!
- Song title generator (includes “kittens” in its diction)!
- Varying speeds!
- Funky basslines!
- Reticulating splines!
- Adjective nouns!
If you wish to convert this to some sampled audio format, use something like SchismTracker to export to .wav (F9 to load, Shift-F10 to export to .wav), and then convert that to whatever you like.
If you wish to convert to MIDI… modplug might be able to open it? I’ll consider adding in a midi export mode.
So if you’re struggling to make music, save our ears and try this. It might even win an award!
Oh yeah, you’ll need Python 2.x to run it. Enjoy.
