Lets get LoFi 8 - Prosound Modded GBC + Pocket Music



ChrisLody | October 31, 2010

This is a bit of a departure from my normal Lofi videos but i just finished modding a gamboy color so i thought i'd do a video of it.

The mod to the gameboy color is a prosound mod which adds an extra output. At the start of the video i use the normal headphone jack to show the difference in level. My GBC had a blow speaker so i installed an extra jack in place of it. There is still some noise but that just appears to be part of the sound of Pocket Music as i also tried the music software built into the gameboy camera and that sounded nice and clean. In the past i've also used Imageline's Edison to remove noise from signals like this.

The software is Pocket Music. I created this track 'Z80' years ago but i still realy like it. Pocket Music is nice and simple to use but can still produce some cool sounds. Its also available on the GBA but i wouldn't recommend that version as it sounds horrid.

Moon released by Jason Sposa


Another release from Jason Sposa / Falling for a Square. I'm looking forward to giving this a good listen very soon. Here's what Jason has to say about the release from his blog:

MOON is a concept EP loosely based on the 2009 Duncan Jones script MOON. I personally just fell in love with the idea of a man (clone) spending years on the moon, while the whole time his world was a lie. I believe I took a little different spin on the idea, and I am quite happy with this dark image I have captured.

Moon is compiled of eight songs all of them composed with NANOLOOP (for iPhone).

In addition, Glocken Jr, Manetron, SV-5 Vocoder, PiezoPop, WS 101, Pocket Organ, Sound Squares + a little Casio SK-1 were all used in the recording of this record.


SPECIAL THANKS TO:

DOCTOR POPULAR - collaborating music on the track "Trans Oceanic Lullaby"
Please find out more great things about him at www.DOCPOP.org

VIVIAN KIM - background vocals on "Blast Off" + lead vocals on "Where Your Heart Lives"
More music from Vivian can be found at THEDUALIES official

You can hear all the tracks here.
