Pixelh8 Music Tech Master Stroke DS

"The Pixelh8 Music Tech Master Stroke DS is a real time synthesizer for the Nintendo DS system it allows for extensive sound design and is the natural evolution of the Music Tech Series allowing for the classic chip tune sound on a modern device.

The new system allows for keyboard style play by pressing "X" to bring up the 2 Ocatve Xylophone or classic Music Tech mode by using the directional pad to control the sounds in the same way as the Music Tech Game Boy and Pro Performer Game Boy Advance.

Loads of new combinations are possible as you can now combine interval settings with time based effects as well as using the noise channel instead of tone and the easy change between menus allow for quick change during performance.

All sounds are produced via the on board sound chip and no samples or sample manipulation is used, this is a real time chip tune synth for the DS.

Top Screen shows options selected at any given time.

Menu 1 controls the Wave Duty, Pan and Volume.

Menu 2 controls Keys and Intervals.

Menu 3 controls time based effects set 1.

Menu 4 controls time based effects set 2.

Menu 5 are some of my favourite sounds, Attack and Release and Credits Screen.

Menu 6 Controls Octave, Whammy Bar, Tone/Noise and 3 sound patches so you can recall them quickly during performance.

The "X" button brings up a simple 2 octave Xylophone to perform the designed sound on. Whats more is that options can be changed during play, in Classic play mode, in Xylophone mode it's only one menu away.

I have had an amazing response to the release of my previous free software and have heard loads of songs created using it and loads of emails of thank yous which is fantastic. I am not going to charge for this software either, but if you would like to help support my research simply buy an album or donate old computer equipment to me, that would be great.

The software is 95% done and will be released for free download to allow for more users to take part and create music. It will be completed after I have finished my third album "And The Revolution" but hopefully that won't be too long, as I am working on it now. :) There will also be an iPhone and Android version soon too.

Please do not email me with questions about when it will be released, join the mailing list at and you will be told as soon as it's ready for download.

I just thought you should know what I was up to.

Make Music, Make Friends, Have Fun
