- Attempted to fix loop desync and make the transition seamless. While not perfect, is a lot better than the last version.

More loops coming this weekend!
Hello everyone! This is going to be a big project for me. While I silently work on Dead Defense 2, I though I'd experiment with a little music maker. Sorry about the size, but some elements get janked up if I make it smaller.

While there are only 5 or 6 loops of each instrument, I plan on making weekly updates, adding more and more content to further expand the possibilities of Metal Music Maker.

I know it's not perfect: The UI is clunky, the samples sometimes are off sync (if this happens, just stop and start the song again), and there aren't that many loops, but I will definitely address all of these in future updates!



Q: The sliders are out of place!
A: I'm sorry about that, the CSS I used for the sliders is set to the original resolution. If you zoom in or out, it'll shift them out of place. I'll fix this in next week's patch.

Q: I don't want to make metal music. I wanna make [insert genre here]!
A: I plan on making little music makers like this for a variety of genres. Stay tuned!

Q: Lame
A: Just like ur mum LOLOLOLOLOL
(I don't mean it. Your mom is a lovely person)

Want an example of making sure your program doesn't mess up? Try running it with something processor heavy in the background as a test. I am so lagged with SL in the background that I can barely type. If it was more efficiently coded it would stay in sync better.

Just awesome, there aren't many riffs and that, but i'll wait for updates. Can you add someway to save songs in mp3 format? or something like that?


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

It seems pretty good - I messed around with it for a while and was able to make some loops that actually sounded pretty good, but the delay between bars that other people are reporting takes away from the experience quite a bit.

The UI is a little non-intuitive, as there are no instructions, but it wasn't too hard to figure out what everything did. I'd recommend adding a preview function of some sort, so that you can hear the sample you're using before you actually play the loop.

With a little polish and a tad more variety, this could be pretty good - I'd like to see you make a few of these for different styles and genres of music. Only giving 4.5/5 because of the inexplicable lag issue.

Thanks for the fair review! I'm indeed working to solve the lag issue, as well as make the interface more intuitive and add more content. I have plans for more of these, but I'm going to wait until I've fixed the lag bug to make them.
