Klystrack - Modern software for creating C64/NES/Amiga-style chiptunes!

I know for a fact that I am no good at creating music apart from banging a few keys here or there which usually ends up with people leaving the room. But what I do like is listening to music such as retro chiptunes or even demoscenes and tracks found on an Amiga or a C64, usually created with software such as Protracker (Amiga) which allows people to create music without studio equipment. But what if you don't have an Amiga, a C64 or a NES? Well then, welcome to Klystrack; a tracker for making C64/NES/Amiga-style chiptunes on a modern platform that can also be used for creating audio for games!

Created by kometbomb with the help of iLKke, Klystrack is a feature packed software with sound additions such as additive synthesis with filters (think SID, Atari, NES etc.), hard sync and ring modulation (like SID) , FM synthesis (think Adlib, MSX, OPL2 etc.), wavetable for samples or custom waveforms to be used in synthesis (think Amiga, SNES), built-in wave generator and even an editor. To be honest I could be here all day talking about the features so I'll just list them below, which was found on the main website!

  • Tracker with free positioning of patterns
  • Pattern transpose
  • Pattern length is not fixed
  • Hard limit of 32 channels but this can be raised (just ask if you need more... sounds crazy, though)
  • Fully themeable, includes half dozen themes
  • Stereo chorus
  • SNES-style multitap echo
  • Bit crusher/decimator
  • Own custom format with a tiny playback library to be used in games, demos etc.
  • Export as .WAV
  • Export each track as separate .WAV's
  • Export wavetable items as .WAV's (use klystrack to create one-cycle waveforms for other synths!)
  • Import .WAV's to use as samples
  • Import Protracker and FT2 modules
  • Import C64 SID files (Rob Hubbard player)
  • Thanks
