Music "done", time to code now


So, Bath was good, too good that I did nothing apart from walk and relax :P I managed to reach to an acceptable level with the tune today tho.

The end is pretty dull, but sounds good enough to me. So I'll leave that part for now and concentrate on coding. I still haven't find the way for getting a timer from the music :/

Still with the music


Well, the music is really consuming a lot of time already. But I think I'm getting somewhere near to satisfaction.

Gargaj suggested some drum tweaks that I gotta try, but overall the music seems to be well received.

I'm going to be away for 3 days tho, I'll try to work a bit on the coding side with the iBook, I hope I can make it compile there without much trouble. A shame that I would be using MacOS during these days, but I'm not really up for installing Ubuntu on a PPC, neither on the MacBookPro right now.

M-Audio Oxygen 8 with Ubuntu 8.04
1. Go to the Synaptic Package Manager, search for "m-audio", you'll find midisport-firmware. Install.

I think that after installing midisport-firmware Ubuntu should already detect the devices and remap them, but as seem that it's not doing it, then:

2. Open a Terminal, and type "lsusb". If the device is connected you should find something like Bus 005 Device 005: ID 0763:1014 Midiman

3. Type this (but with your bus/device): sudo fxload -D /dev/bus/usb/005/005 -s /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSportLoader.ihx -I /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSportKS.ihx

It should be similar for other M-Audio devices. Now I can use my old Oxygen 8 keyboard with Aldrin :D

Ok, I did some more progress with the tune. It's still not done but it has more parts and melodies, need to fix how some parts go in and out, improve the mixing, and even reconsider if I'm really putting that much melody or not. We'll see...

At this point I've also came up with an idea that could work based on the resources I have at the moment, I just need to put texture to a triangle and do some more tests... Tomorrow will be another day.

Mr.doob's clients and sleep will have priority today I'm afraid. So, no progress :/

Ok, thanks to Sole's huge samples collection I managed to progress a little bit on the music. I have the base already, will need to add some more sounds and variations but sounds good enough to me. I started first with the music because I can't control myself while composing the tune, I mean, I can't produce a specific style if somebody ask me, I just do whatever sound good while adding sounds and melodies. So, whatever it comes out, I'll have to find the way later on to put images and some visual sense/relation to it.

I have to say that it took me a while to understand how to export a .wav from Aldrin, but once the wav was exported I just had to go to Add/Remove Applications, searched for .OGG, and found a program on the list that I heard of before, Audacity. Clicked on install, installed it, loaded the .wav and exported as .ogg. Easy and quick.

euskal 12 - nork vs trace


Now that we have the technology, it was about time to upload that 500Mb+ video to Google Video. So if you feel like watching a chair riot you can watch it now with ease ;)
