Let's all send the developers of This oddly-named chiptune tracker (DefleMask?! I guess it goes well with "Mednafen" ) a barrage of requests to include VB/SPU support! (And some donations wouldn't hurt, either...)

Together, we can end the MIDI-conversion scourge once and for all! (j/k; the MIDI-conversion stuff is really impressive and useful! )

I'd really look forward to hearing more proper VB chiptunes! I wanna hear what the VB was really capable of!

Oops… I was so excited by the prospect of VB chiptunes, I put SPU instead of VSU

I tried it out last night and the sound quality is great for the currently-supported systems. I'm no musician, so I can't really comment on the actual tracking process…

Posting this for relevance - popped up in my subscriptions on the way home form work yesterday: https://youtu.be/s9EAzJMMJp4

I thought there already was a VB tracker of sorts in existence, used in homebrew?

Is this to compose your own music or record from current games?

To make music.

Plus, I think the interface is a little bit similar to SnoozeTracker, a SN76489 tracker tEFFx wrote.

I'm really bad at making music, but I was at a VG convention a few years ago and met up with Brendan Becker (chiptune musician known as Inverse Phase) who was giving a talk on composing VG music, trackers, etc. Anyway, we had met previously when I loaned some arcade games to MAGFest (which he was running at the time), so as we were talking, I brought up composing VB music, making a tracker for VB, etc.

His suggestion was to use MilkyTracker. I'm going from several year old memory here, but he mentioned that you could create a customized set of VB instruments, so at a high level, you could create music that would be 1:1 with the VB's capabilities. He offered to help me set it up, and even sounded excited about composing music for the VB (asked if I wanted some new music for my Mario Kart game <- I said it needed it very badly ;) ).

Anyway, somewhere it fell apart... I think I was supposed to send him details and audio samples of the VB's audio capabilities, and maybe I did, or maybe I dropped the ball. But after the conversation and a couple emails back and forth, it never went anywhere.

But, if anyone's serious about a VB music tracker, you may want to look into MilkyTracker, and if you'd like assistance from someone with a lot of experience in the field, I'd be glad to try reaching out to Brendan again and see if there's anything he can help us out with.
