So this charming and easy to use sequencer/sample application is updated and the biggest thing is that now you can export compositions as XM files meaning that they can now be imported into a lot of trackers, as for example SunVox (The same app from the same developer. sneaky, sneaky bastard) and as mentioned by Robin contributor to this website it is a a very nice way to get them into SunVox.
In the sense of SunVox being to difficult to use sequencing wise but now you can use all the modular effects available in SunVox. Or just being to be able to bang out tunes in a more managable way and continue later in another tracker.
Anyway it is great and we should support single developers of apps like this and apps like G-Stomper. Caustic and for example free apps like VU-Knob! (and many more).
Also remember that Mr Nightradio's apps are for free for the PC/Mac/Linux computers!
Google Play info:
* export to XM (eXtended Module of the FastTracker2) - this file can be loaded by any modern music tracker/player (for example, SunVox);
* sound editor: "reduce size / 2 (lossy)" function has been added;
* Android (4.0 and higher): System Settings -> Interface: new option "Hide system bars" for true fullscreen mode;
* new sound packs: pack10_fm, pack11_percussion_2, pack12_orchestra;
* new song - Example12;
* bugs fixed.
This is a soundtrack to a game called MEGABRICKS and is made entirely in Pixitracker 1 Bit.
It is truly gritty sounding of course but the music is not and it is interesting to hear how far a person can take the concept of such a sound that is almost the lowest digital audio quality you can get and make a whole album.
It would be fun to lower the HZ to the limit,
breaking the sound up even further and see what you can get away with!
In either case it is an impressive feat and specially as it is made without any effects or modulations just pure 1 Bit samples.
The soundtrack is for free and comes with the project files.
Love the smell of fresh 1 bit sounds in the morning!

I decided to take a momentary break from Sunvox and started dabbling with PixiTracker. I discovered that the interface is well-suited for tablets, since you just tap once to pick one of the 16 sounds and tap again in a grid to position it. So I found myself composing nightly on a tablet. Nevertheless, the restrictions of just the 16 sounds became a tough but worthy challenge. I stuck to the default sound pack, but I ratcheted the BPM up to 160! I wanted to create a fast head-banging track. :-)
Once I was done on the tablet, I transferred the file to my PC. I used ffmpeg to capture the pattern grid and then once more for the included visualization. Finally, I used OpenShot to combine the two together, tossed in some saturation effects, and added a title!

- Piximod: https://sites.google.com/site/btmura/...
- SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/btmura/zoobreak
- BPM: 160
- Scale: E minor
- Tools: PixiTracker, ffmpeg, OpenShot, GIMP
So if you used the funky app Pixitracker you will be shocked to see this early incarnation...
Also the sound is horrible... not because of the application but for the sound recording.
But why oh why post such a video-
Well let me tell you-
The idea is to have a Pixilang themed week- Pixilang is a small programming language that is for free for Windows, Linux, WinCE, OSX, iOS (sources only ) and of course for Android.
Being very interesting as it is the only (that I know of) programming language that is made for Audio/Visual programming that you can do programming with directly on your device...
It comes with some small already made programs that can be useful.
It was used for creating:
PixiTracker - simple and fun sample based tracker with minimalistic pixel interface
PixiVisor - revolutionary tool for audio-visual experiments
Soul Resonance - audio-visual album
PixelWave and SpectrumGen synths
Northern Forests and Dragon's Game videos
Tangerine Birthro 2012
So there is very limited information for how to program in this language and me not being a programmer wants to learn so if you have anything to send to share with us here or any help please do so to firstname.lastname@example.org the best that I could find is the videos that a man called Brian Muramatsu posted on youtube and I will during the week go through the tutorials that he made and they will be posted here.
It is an itch that I cannot stop scratching this Pixilang.
Please, pretty please make a donation to
Musical android You can do it! It will feel amazing afterwards!!!
