@Medicus: not really, it's only there to discourage vote-scammers.

Is it really necessary to submit an email-address to be able to vote?

I've created utility to convert patterns written in ModPlug Tracker to FC 'blocks', is anyone interested?

Whenever I enter the filter table, or the drumsequence table : channel1 gets lost! sigh :)

@Stainless: You can edit the filter and drum patterns in 4.x and it has a packer, so yes, it is the final version.

I've been looking into FC 4.1 by Dynamix. is that the "best"/"final" version ?

@No-XS: hold CTRL and press 2 and 3!

User Comment

Oh, those 2 things I know. I can get into the block editor. But I am always in channel1. I want to go to channel 2 and 3 too! :)

And to the instrument editor? When I press the ~ I go into a sequence editor where I can only edit the 2 drums sounds

So I need to know how to go to trabk2/track3 an how to go to the instrument table
(btw, trabk2 it is actually called here :))

@No-XS: And yes, there are only 2 drum patterns. The high-nibble tells it if the note affects the pitch at all.

@No-XS: Hold CTRL and press the left-arrow to 3 to access sound editing/channel editing. Press * in the channel editing to access the block (pattern) editing.
Be sure to end sounds with a line of FFs, or data will fuck up on saving!

Aaarghm I tried reading the info/help. But I'm having a real pain trying FC in Vice. I need to know how I can move to channel2/3 and to the instrument editor.

And those drum sequence/wave patterns: are there only 2?

@Richard @RockofFIG: Nice, that's two potential (proper) entries. More than I expected for sure :)

After last week's tune, "Fosters" and having a lot of fun with Future Composer. I'm most definitely in :)

Thumbs up for this great idea! I'd like to see next editions with different editors. :)

This compo is exactly as it seems: make a tune with the editor Future Composer!
I’ve given you more than a month so to give you time to get used to the editor.
You have from May 5 to June 9 to submit a tune. After that, you will have until June 15 to vote for entries. I already got the voting sorted out (not CSDb votes) so get composing!

Rules:
3 tunes max per author
Any Future Composer is allowed, from the original FIG version to Dynamix’s 4.1.
Covers are allowed, but for god’s sakes, PLEASE no “remixes” of the demo tunes.
Coders: the only thing you can do to the player is change the frequency tables and relocate it.
Aside from these, go wild!

After composing-time is over I’ll release the votesheet.

So you may be wondering: out of all the editors to choose, why Future Composer?
Admittedly one of the reasons is fairly self-indulgent: I wanted some modern sceners to get used to an old editor, and what better way to do that than with competition?
Future Composer doesn’t have much sound variety: so to make a good tune you must focus on the music itself- not just impress everyone with your cool sound-making abilities.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask.
