The video is compiled by Mr Nightradio of I guess his favorites?
And here is some favorite tracks of Mr Nightradio submitted in April...
Mmmmm. Good stuff...
Have not finished any serious piece of music since... a looong time but as always when there is a SunVox contest will finish a piece of music as one of my goals in life is to be part of the prices in these contests... Yapps will die happy if one of my creations are bundled with SunVox!!!
This time it is also a price of something that am lusting after... A pendant of the Quantum VJ!
This makes me excited and have started a new fresh piece of music.
Here are the facts:
The rules are very simple:
Don't forget to name your project in the SunVox -> Main Menu -> Song Properties. Name format: Author - Song Name
Deadline: April 15 / 00:00 (UTC+05:00)
Winners will be announced later (after the public vote) on WarmPlace.ru and on all SunVox-related channels (FB, VK, etc.).
The best ones will be included to SunVox distribution. Promocodes (for any of my apps) will be provided for the first three winners.
The top prize for first place is the new Quantum VJ 0101 pendant - it's a glitch-style 8-bit audio visualizer with built-in microphone (limited edition, manual assembly).
Each track is infinite and sounds differently every time you press PLAY. Used functions: slow (subsonic) LFOs, probabilities, random notes and controllers (pattern effects 20-29), random phase setting at the beginning of the song, random interpolated waveform of LFO, prime numbers as the sizes of parallel patterns (in the set of MetaModules), etc.
SunVox library for developers has been updated to v1.9.4c!
Look at the example: JS SunVox Player with generative demo songs.
Lord Gogo have made some deeper incursions into SunVox and it is a good idea to check out his
Youtube channel for more material to inspire and incorporate into your own work.
In this video he is using the image loading function in the SunVox sampler to do interesting things.
Note that the fies are avaiable for download which is muy nice, as just following the video can be hard for a beginner (and people like me that have a hard time in general with anything more than two layers deep...)
His own explanation:
SunVox sampler module can load pictures. It recognize grey values of this images. I had the idea to create alternating bands of different grey values and loaded this pictures in the sampler. You can create custom LFO shapes and step sequencers. Then I use a Sound to Control module to transform the audio output of the sampler into datas I route to any parameter I want. In this case I show how to control the pitch and the filter, and restrict the notes in a scale module. I use the sequencer effect 7 (time stretch) to sync the LFO to the project tempo.
Thanks to Mattew R. Scott for giving me the tip of using the sampler module as an LFO.

Dreamed about mobile music making in the late 90’s when Yamaha released their battery powered portable small but chunky QY 100 General Midi multi track Sequencer. It was way too expensive for me though, going for about 600$.
Years passed by with me interested in electronic music making and dabbling occasionally with some programs but essentially more painting than anything else.
Then a Sony mobile came into my possession around nine years ago and it had a small app that could be installed with General Midi and multi track. My excitement spiked and did a lot of fighting to get anything out of it taking care of one lovely newborn daughter with one hand and pushing buttons with the other. God damn it was not easy going!
No touch screen so arrows+buttons and having put in some notes you had to skip out of that to listen to how it sounded with the rest of the tracks… God Damn it was not easy going!
After a month of fighting realized that it was tooo hard to get anything going…
But a beautiful thing happened, got an HTC for free with Android 2.2. The problem was of course that the only decent app that worked was Nanoloop which is not bad just that app in itself as a standalone hardware is worth a lot and it is unique in all kinds of goodness.
But it had less functions than today and not enough for what I wanted to do even though people create all kinds of beauty with it. (Do love the sound of Nanoloop it can sound like nothing else and have a strange digital mystery to it in a very good way).
Luckily enough a month or two later the phone got upgraded to 2.3 and it still was not enough for using Caustic or G-Stomper which to be honest were in their infancy and not too exciting but SunVox that was already a full blown monster… worked!
Ahhh SunVox with its intriguing tracker interface, modular setup and general esoteric attraction. I was in love and it did not hurt that it was working for PC as well being able to move files back and forth… Yes my real journey into electronic music making had started!
After a slight steep learning curve it is one of the coolest pieces of music software that you can get into if you never tried it take some days with it and be blown away by the experimental possibilities that does not exist on any other apps for Android. It is a gift that keeps on giving if given attention and could talk about it for many pages.
And now here we are with SunVox turning ten and it have just been getting better and better and better with each update.
SO HIPP HIPP HOORAY AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUNVOX!!!
MAY YOU LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!!!
THANK YOU MR NIGHTRADIO FOR SUNVOX AND YOUR OTHER UNIQUE APPS!!!
