Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So after attending some pretty awesome panels and chiptunes concerts at PAX East, I decided that I want to try my hand at composing some chiptunes of my own.
Now, I know the software I want to use (LSDj), but thats not the problem. The problem is that I have never really done anything of this sort and basic music composition is not one of my skills. So I'm looking at any resources (books, websites, anything) that would be a good introduction in basic music composition (hopefully leaning towards techno). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Some say that the Blood Angels are tainted: that they harbour a dark secret. I know this to be true. I have seen the infamous Death Company: wild-eyed and foam-mouthed berserkers who tear their enemies limb from limb, crush skulls with a single blow, snap spines and rip out inner organs. I have seen the Sanguinary Priests: the passing of blood filled chalices from lip to lip, heard their wracking lamentations of Sanguinus's death. I have watched their rituals: mighty warriors daubing their armour in the blood of their foes, heard them crying for vengeance against the enemies of the Emperor.
