A.K.A Mod Music, Chip(tune)Music, KeyGen Music (Keygens, Patches or Cracks)
This is a very special style of music. When I first met it a very long time ago, I immediately liked it.
You keep running a Keygen for a long time, just to enjoy the music. Years and years I've been downloading
those 'illegal' things just to gather nice music.
When I find Songs I like, I record them with Audio Edit Magic
That software is able to record audio using the Stereo Mix device from SoundCard (You need a full duplex SoundCard for that)
and it can also edit audio with basic effects.
I mainly use Copy/Cut/Paste, Fade In and Out to smoothly finish a track that keeps looping and Amplify to increase/decrease the Volume.
After that I save the tracks & give them their Tags:
> Original artist, title, releaseyear etc, but in case I couldn't find that:
> The name of keygen/patch/crack as music title; the releaser (cracker) as Artist; release year as music year etc.Listen to MicroMusic
As GrooveShark has been shutdown and there wasn't any public service alike, I moved to my very own Google Drive
You can find all my recorded and shared tracks here: MicroMusic Collection
