Additional Declarations of Dependence

Going through my tools one more time and I want to make sure I report a few of them so I’m fully disclosed, and so others reading these posts might get ideas for tools to fill in the gap in their own toolbox!

SOUND/MUSIC:

I’ll declare that I’ve got a Shure SM58 Mic and a Mackie mixer, plus a few live instruments around the house, and while I’ve never done any live recording in previous LDs that’s a tool I might call on for sound effects, voice, or music bits.

I just discovered a program called Bosca Ceoil that lets you compose music in a way that I find straightforward and time-effective, so I’m going to declare it for the roster!  I have a terrible ear for melody (just terrible…) but a mechanical understanding of music theory basics so I might grind something out in there if there’s time.

There’s also a chance that if I can get a MIDI output from Bosca (and it doesn’t look like I can) that I will use that crazy GXCC tool to twerk the sound.

ART:

I also should declare the sprite generator from here on the LD site, I used it for creatures in my last LD game so I might try to avoid using it again, but I want it on the bench just in case I need to call it up.

I have still not found an entirely satisfactory palette generator, but there’s one here that I might make use of:  http://mudcu.be/sphere/

And I’ll likely end up using GifCam during the compo to upload animated gifs to the blog here.

 

Good luck to everyone this weekend!
