CR33 – V/A – Project PAL

Live Animals at KTUB tonight!

I don’t know why I hadn’t found out about this earlier, but Live Animals are playing tonight at the Kirkland Teen Union Building with Triceracon, Night Terrors and Japanese artist Pressure Suit. This show is $2, at 148 Kirkland Ave. in Kirkland, WA, and runs from 8-11PM. Be there because I can’t!


Until this point, I had not heard proof Korg’s DS-10 software could be used in order to create real music. Vancouver, B.C.’s Bryface, as silly a name as it may be, has proven me wrong. Using only a single DS, here is Warmth of the Sun.

This track will feature on his upcoming album comprising at least ten tracks of DS-10, perhaps Impulse Tracker or even LSDJ goodness. Keep a lookout for it (right here, if I have anything to say about it) before the end of August!

Comic-Con 2010 Wrap-Up

Wow, it took me awhile to finally get around to posting this, but here’s a very brief summary of my Comic-Con 2010 experience! Comic-Con isn’t just about comics; it’s a celebration about the popular arts, which is what we’re all about here at CrunchyCo (even though it seems like we’re only obsessed with chiptunes at the moment!). There really is something for everyone at the con, and if you haven’t gone before, you need to. This was my third time attending, and it will certainly not be my last.

Music on: Retro Keyboard

Why pay so much for LSDJ when you can get the DSiWare Retro Keyboard for $2!! I had an extra 200 Nintendo Points on my DsiXL, so I downloaded this software to check it out. It would be really funny to sneak some of the sounds into a song and see if anyone notices. :)

Haha in all fairness, for only $2 it is kinda cool, I wish I had something like this when I was 15 years old and first messing around with keyboards. It actually has some okay sounding crunchy Commodore 64 “instruments” on there as well.

According to developers at Abylight, the software features: Interface inspired by the 80s, Selection of keyboard, console and computer sounds from the 80s, rhythms inspired by the first generation videogames, independent drum, bass and chorus parts, 16 instruments, integrated sequencer, Recording and replay option, and more!
