Used this before but unfortunately it needs to be updated for Mac or the app can't be opened. Just giving you the heads up :)

You need to right click then click open and It will give you the option to open it. Its a mac over secure problem

This is really good. I'm having fun using it.
BUT! Three changes that can improve it.

1# Patterns Window is too small to be convenient for bigger works. Suggestion: Make it able to be in separate window, so we could use it on secondary monitor. Or add categories by "instruments".

#2 New Pattern from existing. Suggestion: Small Icon on every Pattern, that will just do that.

#3 Advanced filter mode. Replace one notes line to be a “clickable” and when clicked, it will enable filter edit of that column.

I don’t have a single musical bone in my body. My little sister does though, and this is going to annoy her until I figure out how to music.

We need a new version for osx. Thanks!

Please add some way to mashup songs

This is the best tracker I've found so far. It's really helpful that it exports to MIDI. It would be really cool if it could export to other trackers so we could use this and then use them to export to console sound files

wow

Can I shift layout from left to right 

To up to down. 

That would be a lot useful. Most softwares are in up to down layout. It will be helpful for everyone

Most software isn't up and down. Only trackers are. Any DAW like Garageband, Logic, Pro Tools, Audacity, etc all use the horizontal layout. It might be best to get accustomed to it

most of piano type DAWs have horizontal layout.

Is this software what game makers use for music + sfx for their games?


There was this video that Sam Hogan made and one of the clips contained him making music for his video. I am asking this question because this software suspiciously looks like the one in his video.

Yeah people use this to make music and stuff. Brackeys has a good tutorial on how to use this.

So I tried to open it, but it told me to get Adobe Air.  I installed Adobe Air and it still tells me to do this or contact the creator. So here I am.

I downloaded for Linux and after going through everything the music just doesn't play. I press space and the play button and it simply doesn't play. Anyone had this problem?

(+1)

I can't even open it on linux.

(+1)

Yeah, i found out the best way is just to download wine and download the windows version

(+1)

oh man this is sweet. super easy to use. and sounds great.

it does crash alot, i'm on win10 and it crashes every other minute. this is probably a side project, but it would get great to get this up and running better.

i'll jump on my linux rig in a bit to see if it works better there.

Can you please update it for mac? It won't run!

Amazing app( My first Song)

Not working with macOS Catalina.  Is it 32 bit app?

Hi, Terry! I'm finding your program very helpful for my little music-making hobby, but lately I realized that it NEVER saves my track (the .ceol itself) whenever there's a block that has Advanced Filtering on. Exporting works, just not the CEOL file.

It's sad to say that this has made me lose hours of progress, so I hope you would please look into it.

Anyhow, I'm grateful for this tool. Keep up the good work!

is the program copyright free, or do we have to credit you

Hello! This doesn't work on mac right now... Any updates?

(+1)

Thank you so much! I love it, it's so simple to use and it sounds amaizing

(+2)

I have a solution for MacOS Just download the adobe air version for linux and use adobe air to open it and then it works the only drawback is that the scaling is broken so you can only use it fullscreen mode

I love this, perfect to create simple music loops. However, this no longer works on the Mac; it needs to be updated for the new MacOS. Still works on Windows, but I'd love to be able to use this program with my Mac! Hopefully this gets fixed soon!

You could use wine too.  It isn't the best I know, but it's better than nothing

really great! thanks for the software!

Hi. Thanks for developing the great tool. Unfortunately it doesn't work on Mac anymore. Are you planning to update the Mac version to 64 bit?

Hi ! I love it. I am a hobbyist developer. I am not musician at all, but I have been able to do the musics of my 1st game with this great tool. The game is published on itch.io .  It's a free 2d adventure platformer: Nightmare Therapy. If you want, feel free to give me your feedback on the musics, and anything you want ;)

I like it!
But is there a way to change volume for one single note?

(+1)

No longer works on Mac as Catalina has taken away 32bit apps.  Will this be updated?
