Chord is synth program for the original nintendo gameboy. The idea was to make something that can be played like an instrument, but with the limitations of the few buttons available. No extra accessories. No midi keyboards.
You build “chords” of five notes and play them back using the pulsewave channel, with full sound register settings control and optional arpeggiator.
Not the best of videos but some nice nanoloop sounds from about 20 seconds in.
That’s a hell of a bundle, and the price isn’t totally prohibitive either. Click below to take a link

Thanks to @glidepro (via Twitter) for pointing this one out.
Oh, great! I’d almost promised myself that I’d stop funding things on Kickstarter, then this turns up! Having said that it really isn’t a cheap option, but I still hope that they hit their funding target.
I’m still tempted though.
I’ve heard that this will work under gbulator on a palm. Worth trying out perhaps?
I’ll have to give it a chance at some point.
Now that is cool, I really must get around to trying this out. I’ve been meaning to try two emulations on my T3, firstly running GBulator with Nanoloop and apps by 8 Cylinder inside it (as seen in this photo of GBulator with Nanoloop, and also running Atari ST old music software on CaSTaway.
It has to be worth a go, certainly I think that the GBulator with Nanoloop / 8 Cylinder will work, I think that the Atari ST idea might be harder and less likely yet still worth a try.
So, there’s a job for February.
Any other kinds of emulation worthwhile for palm?
Sometimes I think I shouldn’t look out for these kind of things. You start to find out about stuff, and then what happens? You’re gonna want to buy one.
Well, that’s what I’m starting to think here. There’s an active community of users for this device, and Little GP tracker seems to be in constant development.
It is certainly something I’m going to keep an eye on.
