        GAMEBOY COLOR OR GAMEBOY ADVANCE EMULATOR

        OVERVIEW

        Fast Tracker II clone for the Gameboy Color called Fatass.
        It was coded in pure z80 assembly, and was used to create music for several videogames.

        FEATURES

        It is a stripped down FastTracker II clone for the GBC. The difference between the 2 is that FastTracker II has effects columns wile fatass just has a note column for each of the 4 gameboys sound channels, those can be manipulated via the instrument editor for duty, waveform, panning, vibrato, arpeggio, portamento, sample playback and all of its hardware features.

        The special thing about Fatass is that its sound engine uses a method of linear frequency handling, that means no-madder what note you play, it'll still be on a musical scale.

        Fatass also comes with several songs bilt-in to the ROM, some of the songs may sound pretty familiar as this was the tracker that was used in a not so playable game for the GBC called Animorphs. Not all songs from the game are included though, just some.

        OVERVIEW
        The venerable successor of NoiseTracker.

        FEATURES
        as initially developed for the Amiga line of computers, but was later made available for other contemporary platforms such as the Atari ST/MSX.

        In addition to the basic features provided by Ultimate Soundtracker and NoiseTracker, Protracker came equipped with a built-in sample editor and a keyboard split function to assign multiple instruments to different regions of the keyboard. Later versions also extended the MOD format by increasing the maximum number of patterns from 64 to 99.

        Protracker is capable of playing back music at the correct speed on both NTSC and PAL computers. Previous tracker software used playback routines which were synchronized to the refresh rate of the screen, which would cause incorrect playback on NTSC computers due to the higher refresh rate.

        OVERVIEW

        OctaMED Soundstudio it is advanced and more recent version of OctaMED.

        FEATURES

        It had features like MIDI file support, ARexx support, support for 16-bit and stereo samples, hard disk recording, and support for up to 64 channels. Available for Amiga and PC. A later approach to extend the features of the Amiga version of OctaMED was performed by Kjetil Matheussen starting in 1997. By hacking the binary he managed to make a more low-level plugin system than was already available via the ARexx language. With the help of NSM the users could now get access to the CAMD MIDI library, 48-channel MIDI interfaces, signal processing plugins for the sample editor, interaction with the sequencer Bars&Pipes, and many other esoteric features.
