no need for an opinion there, just do as you please! "norms", haha, wild. The musagi forum had never really been that busy, but now it's stunningly slow. Maybe also because I'm not doing much recently either. Anyway... doesn't matter all that much.
Hey, thanks for keeping Musagi up to date. I'm really glad someone still cares about my favorite musical tool . I'm working on an album of chiptuney-things that are made just with Musagi, so I'll post it here once it's completed.
Just used Teamplay for the first time the other day too, that's pretty neat!

My pleasure! I'll have to get back to it again, too, although some other surprises are in the works, too. Let's see. Anyway, Musagi is very precious to me, too. I'm right now doodling with it again, hehe.
a friend and myself just recently discovered musagi and we love it. we were previously using PXTONE, but musagi has a much better interface and a few features that PXTONE just can't compare wtih.
i mainly created this account just to say a few things and ask some questions (none of my music is really worth listening to yet, i'm still a youngling in the music world)
first... the main thing that has constantly bothered us about this program... does anyone know why in the world it's so SMALL? did drpetter create it using a 640x480 resolution or what? because on 1920x1080 it's a pain in the ass to sit back in my chair comfortably and make music just seems to be kinda weird that you can't change font sizes or anything.
second... i mentioned before that PXTONE can't compare to this program. i'm not sure if you've used it... but the one feature i think musagi could use from it is that you can adjust volume of an entire instrument for the duration of the song or any specific interval you want, as opposed to on musagi where you can only adjust specific velocities for each new note. any chance of changing that in the future?
third... compatibility issues and other quirks... musagi seems to randomly freeze a lot. i'm using win 7 ultimate 64 bit. do you know if anyone else has had this issue? also, using "swave", no matter what wav files i choose from my computer, none of them will make noise. i've even tried appending a wav file onto an swave that was already fully loaded. it continues to function as normal, but the wav i added does nothing.
sorry if i've come across as demanding or a bit abrasive on my first post. i don't want to do that at all, just mostly trying to find out a few things and provide some feedback. i think musagi is amazing, and almost all of the music i've downloaded from other forum members is as well!! the potential in this program (for people who love chiptune-esque sounds) seems to be unlimited.
your songs called "test71" and "test03c" are probably some of my favorites so far. what's your musical background? keep up the good work man! both with your music and with musagi. i know there's a lot of other people out there keeping track of this program.
also, just an afterthought, have you ever considered accepting donations toward the continued development of the program? just a suggestion i guess. i'd totally be down for contributing a few bucks if it meant the long life of musagi and programs like it.
Creature, I haven't heard your songs, yet, but I can already tell: YOU ROCK! )))
Well, all very valid points. I was planning on fiddling in a parameter lane that can be used universally with any or a wholesome collection of parameters. This would solve the volume control and add a giant amount of additional functionality. With this I would also finally introduce a tempo control, which had been an old request that I find great, too.
I have not dealt at all with swave, yet, so I can't tell you what's going on there. I now have win 7, too, so I can have a look and see, if there are compatibility issues and if I can resolve them. Fortunately, Tomas (drpetter) is still around, while the idea of a musagi 2 development becomes stronger and stronger. But I, too, think that a few things could still go into polishing this version. I think with version 2 a different kind of charm would come and this wild rogue-style app might retain some interest of its own.
As for the size of it.... AAAAAHHHHHH: Tell me about it! Lol! My eyes... my precious eyes. You know how much waveform pixeling I had done with it (still do). That's another reason for why I've added the waveform creation tool into the new CHIP and also removed some of the ambiguity of the double wide curve lines. But, well, I think enlargement will have to go into musagi 2, then. Sorry about that.
Anyway, I'm thrilled about your post and value straight up concerns more than beating around the bush anyway, hehe. ;o)
Also, don't worry about sharing your doodles, even if they're just experimental. It's always fun to just experience someone's creativity, even at early stages of the passion. }
My paypal account uses my email, which you can find at the bottom of my website. If you dare to donate something, I'm always thrilled about the appreciation, but- naturally- you don't have to. But I'm familiar with the urge and do that with pleasure myself. If we all had that spirit, our focus could really go towards where we really love to apply ourselves. Kudos and Thank you for your great spirit! (But make sure your first donation went to DrPetter!) ;o)
You will notice that I called the exe: musagi[t1.68].exe, because it acts a bit differently than all former versions, so don't overwrite the old version just yet! It's just a recommendation. It doesn't really destroy the sound of older [t1.x]songs, but changes it and sometimes in unfavorable ways. I'll look into that....
Some powerful changes are in there, though, especially for CHIP and it's behavior in mono mode as well as some very pleasant waveform creation features. Check with the first post for download links and additional info!
Ehehe, thanks! Yeah, it's one of my dearest, too. Well, there are some curious initialization bugs that I still need to track down. They've always been there, but it seems as though something has aggravated them a bit. Weird stuff. I'll try to find it.
I checked out this program quite some time ago but didn't end up doing much with it, then returned to it recently with intent to utilize. I -was- going to write a post about an issue I had with the PHYS instrument, but after reading
- [1.65] DISREGARD "PHYS" for now! It's there, but it's really nothing but a laboratory tool and in no shape to be used. You can try it, but keep the musagi version you've been using with the songs you'd make with Phys. It's nowhere near completion! Simply disregard it, really! (ps: I already love it, though!)
^ that, I though I'd skip it. Then I decided not to! Feel free to consider this a bug-post and if there's a workaround it'd be stellar, and if there's not, I can always cross my fingers for an eventual fix.
So, the thing is that I've created an instrument that I enjoy and would like to work with more in the future but, when I save the instrument and load it again, there's a peculiar thing that happens: If I press two keys at the same time, e.g. x and v, sometimes I get both tones together, but more often I only get on of the tones. It works perfectly fine before saving and loading, but not after.
Well, for now, goodbye Musagians, and thank you Taron for your continued work on this wonderful project.
PS. I think I've found my workaround. I believe that I should be able to record samples of the phys-instrument as wav-files and then use an swave-instrument with the wav-files when doing the actual composing and recording. Only thing is that I won't be able to easily tweak the instrument if desired. Still, it should work.
PPS. Initially I thought that the vsmp-instrument would not work for me since the sound was terminated directly when a key is not pressed, however I just noticed that I can move the reverberations to the vsmp-instrument and it seems to work fine. A much simpler/faster solution than the previous one.

HEY, that's awesome, Prognastic, I'm glad somebody is playing with it and cares to tell, haha! 8)))
Can you send me a little example so I can confirm what's happening there? There are many things still wrong with Phys, which really, really was not meant to be something final, but I keep using it myself every now and then, haha. But I've never noticed the issue you're describing. I'll have a look, though, for sure!
Thanks again, I'm thrilled to find more reasons to continue...
Finally got around to messing with t1.68, and I like it so far.
I really like Phys and am glad that it's being worked on, I find it a lot of fun to tinker with. I haven't really had problems with it outside of apparently telling it to do too much and having my sound silenced, though I haven't been saving my Phys instruments and trying to load them into other songs lately.
Other than that, I noticed a glitch that happens seemingly at random when I ctrl+click or shift+click(or ctrl+shift+click) on a knob to adjust it. The grid behind the instrument/mixer is also clicked somehow when I do that, muting or un-muting channels.
Just want to say again that I love musagi, especially the dev version, thanks and keep up the good work taron
