Little Sound Dj (LSDj)

LittleSoundDj (LSDj) by Johan Kotlinkski is a tracker style program for making music on your Gameboy. LSDj takes advantage of the Gameboy's sound hardware and turns it into a full fledged workstation for synthesis and sequencing. It provides advanced capabilities such as a subtractive synthesizer with resonant filters for creating instruments to be played back on the Custom Waveform Channel. For extra versatility, LSDJ also contains a quite powerful arpeggiator, which possibilities go far beyond the classic SID-style chords. Additionally, the arpeggio table gives you the ability to create fairly complex instruments and effects to combining or complementing the already existing commands such as vibrato, pitch bend, and portamento.


The sequencer of Little Sound Dj has a very open structure. It was designed to leave all the musical possibilities of the Gameboy in the hands of the user. The system can be said to be both simple and complex; it has a slight learning curve, but when learned, it is possible to transcribe a complete Bach piece to it on less than one hour.


The Gameboy sound chip offers four channels with 4-bit sound. Custom waveforms can be created by free-hand drawing, or by using a subtractive synthesizer with resonant filters. For extra versatility, Little Sound Dj also contains a quite powerful arpeggiator, which possibilities go far beyond the classic C64-style chords.


Sample-wise, Little Sound Dj boasts a set of 59 phonems for programmable speech. Besides that, it also features drum kits sampled from machines TR-606, TR-707, TR-727, TR-808, TR-909, CR-78, CR-8000, KR-55, DR-55, DR-110, DMX, Drumulator, RhythmAce, TOM and LinnDrum.


It is possible to use a link cable to sync two Game Boys; great for party fun or for added polyphony! If you want to, you can sync LSDJ with Nanoloop. MIDI sync is possible too, if you are ready to build your own LSDj Midi Interface.

Little Sound Dj, the Game Boy/Game Boy Color tool of choice for amateur & professional musicians and composers!
