Free Chiptune Workshop: Gameboys & Trackers with BOOSH Feb 23
We're very excited to host this FREE workshop with Brett Klein aka BOOSH and members of Alberta Chip, Slowscan & Pegmode, giving us an Introduction to Chiptunes and writing music with Trackers
This class will cover the use of old game and computer systems to make music, namely the Nintendo Gameboy. This workshop will cover everything LSDJ, a program that effectively turns a Gameboy in to a synthesizer/sequencer. In this program we will cover the tracker style interface, creating instruments, plotting notes, commands, command table, loading samples, track management, limitations, and capabilities.
This course is designed to have you comfortable making music on LSDJ and have enough understanding of trackers to be capable of making music on other consoles.
