Conversations with a Computer (WIP)

(a "song" / audio experience I'm working on)

The computer has booted up; so far the user and computer are talking happily.

I'd love to know if anyone enjoys this kind of thing and would like to hear more

@cwebber I would! :blobcheer2: Can I read somewhere about how you generate this stuff?

@pfm Sure! I'm making it in Milkytracker. Mostly I've just been watching various tutorials on YouTube. I wouldn't claim I'm very good or experienced. So far I am generating the samples/instruments manually/procedurally in the program.

Here's the XM file so you can open it in Milkytracker (or similar trackers) yourself if you are interested dustycloud.org/misc/conversati

@cwebber

This sounds good. I've always enjoyed scenes in various media of computers/robots talking to each other in what I'd call a chiptune style.

Just a thought: making VGM remixes might be a good way to get experience. OCRemix.org's workshop section with Zircon's tutorials may be generally relevant. I've been downloading music from that site for years.

@martianmoorgrove ... but I've never looked at these tutorials! These are great resources, thank you.

@cwebber

Cool, you're welcome. Just for kicks I checked my oldest download's timestamp: "Wed 19 May 2010 02∶37∶22 PM EDT".
