Alexander Zolotov's PixiTracker, and PixiTracker 1Bit
I bought PixiTracker a long time ago. Played a little bit and then quickly discarded it as some chip tune toy of little use.
Then, a few days ago when Comrade Zolotov updated both PixiTracker apps for .xm export, etc. so I took them for another spin to figure out how to get their sequences into SunVox. Figured it out, and posted about it in another thread.
But, I kept playing with PixiTracker for the last couple of days. I know it looks like a video game from the 80's, but this app has so much capability for a great deal more than I originally thought. The sound packs it comes with are decent, and if you run the octaves down and mess with velocity, and scale.... then paste in some of your own samples... you can easily get very non-chiptuney compositions out of it.
Then, you can export the whole thing, complete with patterns, tracking, your tweaked sounds, etc. into SunVox for more complexity and effects. Or, as a good quality .wav file. Or, export out the midi by itself. I tried all of this and was very impressed. Brought PixiTracker's exported midi into Auria Pro and it appeared to be very accurate.
So much function and great use from what appears on the surface to be a nostalgic toy. And, it's only $3! Or, free for the desktop.
I don't know if this was an error over the weekend, but I'd only purchased PixiTracker about a year ago. But, there's a bundle that lets you also download the other PixiTracker 1Bit for free. At least there was over the weekend.
