No fun?

Realfun status update:
Decided to allow lots of steps per track => new trackeditor (pattern editor)
Finally made up my mind about the voice selection => new voice selection screens
Came up with yet another music format => new replayer (and new editor, as everthing is hardcoded)
To free some RAM I'll use the VRAM to store meta song information and the voicebanks => new (and 'somewhat' slower) songbuffer/voicebank routines

In short: I'll reprogram the whole thing.

specs are now something like:
multiple songbuffers, 256 tracks of up to 256 steps (every track can have it's own lenght), 16 or 32 channel songs, order table of 256 positions, 32 voices (fm+waves in one bank) and most command events allow a note event on the same step.
But specs can change when something's to difficult to implement Wink

Most parts have to be rewritten, and rf isn't toppriority atm, so I have no idea when it will be finished.

Why is the number of channels not flexable?

Thanks for the update... Unfortunately it means we can scrap RealFun as a viable alternative to MoonBlaster for MoonSound for the near future.

I wonder, what *is* toppriority for you at the moment? Sjasm, that RPG, or something completely new/different?

Why is the number of channels not flexable?To keep the data aligned with the 16K mapper segments, and because it's easier to program and faster to calculate.I wonder, what *is* toppriority for you at the moment? Sjasm, that RPG, or something completely new/different?Regarding msx it would be hamaraja nights. But basically I meant: I am working on it, just not that fast.

I think I have stated before, but euhm.. wouldn't it be a good thing to see what the Moonsound owners would like to see for a tracker? With Moonblaster FM/Wave there are two decent tools which both have their limitations, Meridian takes a highly detailed (& MIDI) approach to the Moonsound and creating music, I think Realfun should be somewhere in between. Flexible enough to allow mixing FM/Wave channels in a way the composer would like to, fast enough to be used in games and demo's that need all the CPU time they can get.

I for one thought the Realfun trial version had some nice features and was hoping you'd elaborate on those instead of moving more towards 'something like Meridian' (which you kind of are doing right now, if you ask me). We're out here, don't be afraid of us! By asking some questions no what (potential) Moonsound composers would like to see in Realfun you can base your decisions on the opinion of the MSX community instead of just your own . Wink

actually I think there should be something between meridian and mbwave/fm indeed, otherwise we'de get 4 apps of which 2 are the same Smile

What's wrong with a little competition? Brings the prices down Wink Tongue

what price, what competition ? .. it isn't about $ .. it's about finding an app that suits you.. the more choice, the more chance there is at least one product suits you.

Gee... you'd almost wonder if I was kidding... It's a good thing I used the Wink 'dead serious' and Tongue 'not kidding' smileys to emphasize that I wasn't...

Moonblaster for Moonsound is included in the price and if I am correct informed Meridian also not. Realfun well it is difficult to say what will happen to it if you ask me.
