Chiptunes are amongst the most iconic electronic tracks ever created, combining the nostalgia of retro video games and the dawning of electronic music as a force to be reckoned with. This LSDJ Nintendo Gameboy Cartridge is the latest version of the classic chiptune software, harnessing the power of the on-board sound chip in Original DMG Gameboys and Gameboy Pocket models: proper music making on the move!
This cartridge contains version 5.3.6 of LDSJ the phenomenally popular tracker for the Nintendo Gameboy. Make music using four channels of sound, linking your patterns together into sequences and making a whole arrangement while sitting anywhere! LSDJ has the capability to synthesize bass, leads, and arpeggios – as well as generating synthesized speech. This particular version allows you to save one track, which is stored even when your Gameboy is turned off.
This LSDJ tutorial by a chiptune artist is a really useful resource to get you started. It’s even possible to sync your cartridge to MIDI, analog gear, VSTs and other gameboys! LSDJ has been used by some huge names in the scene – and it’s perfect for sampling and using in conjunction with modern DAWs like Ableton Live.
This LSDJ cartridge is sold by Suicidebattery who are based in England and sell a range of electronic entertainment devices.
