I think you are looking for something like this:

Real chip music on Amiga using Paula and AHX Tracker.
Also, Octamed does support Synth sounds as an instrument type, I personally dont know how to make my own Synth sounds :(

Synthsounds on OctaMED only work in 4 channel mode.  Plus they are essentially just short samples that can be switched between in the middle of a note.

People seem to say this in an almost disparaging way but this is a very powerful method of synthesis.  You can change this waveform every cycle if you have a fast enough processor and you could even make it different every time you play it.

Being able to change waveform as it plays is done by wave table synths but vey few can "morph" it into a different wave.
Some analogue synths can do it but they're very few and far between (and expensive).  You can also use this technique to recreate the sounds the Casio CZ synths made.

The end effect is far more powerful than playing back static samples.

I wish there was a program that allowed you to assign different sound samples to the keys on your keyboard, or movements on a joystick. That or maybe something that allowed you to tweak the noise via a Paddle Controller kind of like Cynth Cart for the C64.


For keyboard triggering I used NAPS (New Amiga Sample Player): check out Aminet; is in there!

Wow, I am impressed, minator! Just curious, how hard is it to get these Casio CZ sounds? Anyone, ever made an Amiga Emulator-ish-type-thing? LOL!

Oh this is shocking:

Reniose FAIL

"While it is possible to use the computer keyboard to enter notes in Renoise, it is not velocity sensitive and can only map two and half octaves at once. "

OSS Win - reads all kinds of touch sensitive data and key-ups. I love this feature for keying in piano parts.

Sorry, Off subject.


Not sure how this is a "fail" for Renoise.  No PC or Amiga keyboard I am aware of is velocity sensitive.  Plus since  there are only about 12 keys across the QWERTY row of a keyboard, of course it can only map two and a half octaves at once (I don't think OctaMED is much better).

OctaMED has the same limitations as ReNoise when using the QWERTY keyboard to enter musical notes.

I think you're assuming they meant an external MIDI (piano type) keyboard when they were actually talking about the QWERTY keyboard in the above quote from the Logic manual.  I would be very surprised if ReNoise could not accept velocity data and the full multi-octave note range when entering music via an external MIDI controller keyboard, just as OctaMED can.

I don't know if it's actually been done on an Amiga. Just that it should be possible.
Paula is more powerful than most people think, in combination with software makes is even more versatile.
