Hope it's ok to post my new album in this forum. I composed this in nanoloop over the last 6 months, and road tested it at a few gigs in Japan before recording it live in one take with minimal edits. As a result, it's pretty raw but is a good representation of my live sets.

7. nanodisco 04:51

Yeah, this is great, really fresh. Gonna sit down with it in full later today.

 

I had Nanoloop on one of my old Androids, made a bunch of Radigue-esque drones with it. I should find that thing and dub those tracks...

Track 2 soooo good! I am def getting this :w00t:

yeah track 2 is really great, i liked Pselodux's other stuff a lot but I would argue this is some of his best stuff.

 

I bet Eugene is going to come in here any second and yell at you Modey for putting this in 'new releases' section (obvious sarcasm)

Ah thanks guys! Yeah track 2 is probably my favourite from the nanoloop stuff I've written.

 

I wasn't expecting this to be thought of as some of my best stuff though, that's a big compliment :D

Nanoloop stuff has been a very different writing process for me, more fluid and spontaneous; most of this stuff was written when I had a few minutes spare and had my gameboy on me, hence also why all of the tracks flow into each other without difficulty.

 

And the reason why I post my stuff in this forum instead of EKT is because I think it's silly to keep them separate just because some are released on labels and some aren't.

mmm tracks 2 and 4 keep putting in my head (not sure if it's 2 or 4 specifically or maybe a weird made up combination of the two. echoes from the live set you did recently maybe. either way.. digging :)

makes me think about looking at nanoloop someday

Each version (original gameboy v1, gba v2 and android/ios) is very different in sound but the interfaces are somewhat similar. The mobile version is great in its own way, but v1 and v2 are very good for quick composition and live play. Plus they can use the link cable port for MIDI/CV/2x nanoloop sync, which makes them quite powerful; the sync is pretty tight.

I've listened through twice so far, and it's excellent. I like how you really make the most of just a few key sounds on each track, simple and effective. It all fits together like one big skillfully arranged piece of music. Interestingly, the standout tracks on my first listen were completely different from the ones that stood out most on my second. I think that's a good sign!

Would you cite SND as an influence on parts of the album? I was listening to Atavism recently and there are definitely some similar aesthetic sensibilities permeating both works.

 

My mind went to SND immediately when I heard nanosilo. But that was the only place where I made that connection. For the rest I'm just trippin' out at the nanodisco.

Yes, definitely! The stuttery, minimal chord pattern style had a big impact on me, and nanoloop2 replicates it pretty well. I'm working on combining that sound with some other minimalist composition techniques, perhaps even with the aim of releasing a 'gameboy minimalism' album at some point.

      so i've recently gotten back into nanoloop in all it's variations. i had put it aside for many years after my original nanoloop 1.2 cart battery died and scrambled all my files.
       
      i starting a while back with the android version, then (after getting a new phone) the iphone version. more recently i purchased the nanoloop 1.7.x cart for classic gb and this week received a 2.7.x cart for gba. i'll also more than likely purchase the nanoloop mono when it releases next month.
       
       
      anyways i just thought maybe some of you guys could post some of your favorite tips for nl in all of it's forms.
       
      i was a honestly quite surprised at some strange differences in features between the newest nl1 and 2 carts (namely how limted the arpeggio function seems to be on the 2 compared to 1) and also that some of my favorite features from 1.2 had been removed in 1.7 (portamento is gone but it seems like you can fake it pretty well with the pitch envelopes).
       
      i have a classic gb for recording my nl1 cart, and just picked up a micro for nl2 . wish i had read up more on the micro as it's noisy as hell even though it has decent bass output. i also have a ds lite with a dead top screen that i'll probably actually use for recording the 2 as it's way cleaner signal and still puts out bass. i also have a gba sp that i can use for composition of both the 1 and 2. the bass is shit but it's way easier to see than a classic gb.
       
      right now i'm by far the least familiar with nl2 as i've only had it for a few days. still trying to wrap my head around how the fm stuff is supposed to work. is there no wave shaper for the s channel like there is for nl1?

      this new prototype has been teased by olivier for a bit now. his new yt video offers the first audio and details on his next major project.
