As much as I like my own tracker, I can't hide the fact that another awesome music editor was released very recently. Hermit of SIDwizard fame proudly presents you TEDzakker, a tracker for the Commodore 264 series. It features a custom driver to achieve effects previously unheard on the TED chip.
From the release notes:
- 6 different player-types for different needs and rastertimes/sizes
- TED sound emulation on SID for C64 version
- HerMIDI MIDI-interface support (notes can be played, instruments can be selected)
- short 1ms whitenoise can be enabled for instruments (crisp soundstarts)
- SYNC and PHASE between the two channels, possible to create ringmod or PWM-like sounds
- bass sounds deeper than A2=108Hz by utilizing 'noiseloop'
- note-volume fade-in/out in instrument-tables to create volume-envelopes
- different mixing modes to map the virtual volumes of channels to shared volume
- normal/incremental vibrato, balanced vibrato/slide-speed strength in lower octaves
- Instrument load/save support (each instrument has its own individual table)
- Runnable and playable tunes can be exported directly from TEDzakker editor just like workfiles
- Built-in cheatsheet and built-in tutorial/example-tune for all player-types
