I came across a new drone synth for the Game Boy called 'Droneboy' (thanks to Joe Bleeps for giving me a heads up).

I put together a demo video showing how it works, and with some sounds here:

It can be done easily in lsdj, but that Microcosm thing is very interesting, i want it smile

The drones? Yeah, though perhaps not if you are using the Frequency setting (as opposed to the notes). Having it all on a couple of easily accessible screens is a bonus as well if you want just drones, as it's quicker to edit the parameters that way.

The Microcosm is wild. Would recommend.

You can play one block of all 4 channels and change on-the-fly whatever you want, but yes this is more easy. At least it is a different way to use Gameboy than classic tracking. smile

Had a play with it, fun stuff. smile Would be better if you could hold down the controls to gradually change parameters, rather than pressing it loads of times. But always happy to see any new GB sound rom

Wow! This is awesome! I feel under drugs after played with it lol

It should be even better if it was possible to change noise channel note like it is on recent lsdj version. For playing with a drone instrument like a didgeridoo on D.

With this I think I will make new sounds for my drone project (listenable here : https://astralkinesis.bandcamp.com/albu … e-pr-sence )
