online is not working for me

Make a CTRL + Z shortcut pleaseeee ...


or at least an undo button 

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?

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.

Link to online version broken and mac not updated.

yeah same

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

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!

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?

I love this so much. The tutorial is amazing, more serious DAWs should have run-throughs like that.

(+2)

Very easy to use!
I like it, can you make a mobile port ?

most likeley not since the creator has likely stopped working on the program or can't bother with making a mobile port.

(+1)

Hey! I LOVE this application, could you please make a mobile version? I would love it if you did! Thanks!

It's a great app but whenever I load a file the song comes out slow and distorted. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

it's so easy and fun to use. thanks for this!

hi, can you update the Mac system's software? I cannot install it

Can you import samples or wavs for instruments? I'm asking because all the instruments sound the same. Am I missing a setting?

Nope, sorry!

(+1)

Interesting tool.  Aren't you the guy that wrote one of my favorite casual games (Super Hexagon)?  I'm going to have to check out some of your other stuff.  I haven't gotten around to checking out VVVVVV yet, but definitely among games I own.  Not a lot of time for gaming these days.  Making them yes, playing them no.  You should check out the FlatRedBall project sometime if you're interested at all in developing in C#.  Very cool framework that works with MonoGame and the author is very helpful.

That happened to me to, try restarting? It fixes it eventually.

An update would be marvelous, app is great

Can you add a "do you want to quit" warning? I accidentaly pressed esc and now all my progress is gone and so is pretty much my will to live.

(+2)

I like it, but can you add these features:


1. making your own instruments (and choosing to convert them into 8 / 16 bit_

2. adding effects for specific parts

3. (either this one or another one) real life instruments (no 8/16 bit music)

Love it! All my game music is made with this. (So far.) The editor is accessible, but deep. Couldn't make it better if I tried.

Any tips on which instruments sound best? I'd like to make music similar to 2D Zeldas

Couldn't say. Look in the chiptune section, it has lots of beeps and boops.

(1 edit)

It is cool! Please, add sampler and advanced effect mastering. Then it will be perfect.

This is amazing! Thank you Terry!

I would adore undo functionality and/or a one-click save feature (or Ctrl+Z/Ctrl+S would be amazing too).

When I click to save, it asks me to navigate from my desktop folder each time. For now, I've added a shortcut from my desktop folder to my Bosca Ceoil music folder, to make saving faster. I like to save my work often!

Thanks again!

it's amazing, made a buncha music for my undertale-like game, and can u do the same thing, but with real sounds?

Won't run on Ubuntu 18.10.  Here's the log https://pastebin.com/Tu8dYrpp

got it on boscaceoil.net

Pressing Alt causes the program to go into a state where it freezes for a few seconds after any mouse movement.

i keep getting an adobe AIR error that wont let me open the program
