   Chipmusic - virtual mastering
I am making a chiptune with milkytracker in .xm format and i’m trying to find different routines to make it sound a little bit more “produced”.

I came up with the following idea:

The latest renoise beta (1.9) loads xm quite ok and plays them acceptable, in general. My idea is to load the chiptune into renoise and do some mastering and perhaps also some mixing, just using compressors and EQ:s. If i mixed the tune in renoise the way i liked it, i would then want to be able to solo any channel in renoise and then do the necessary adjustments in milkytracker trying to immitate the way each and every channel sounds in renoise.

The comressor would be 'converted' using the volume column in milkytracker. The EQ would be converted changing the samples.

This might sound like a lot of work, but i think there is a lot to gain on this method if you want to have some extra edge of quality. What do you guys think?

Another question i have is: can i solo a channel in renoise and still hear it as if all channels were on? maybe this is possible using send-channels in some clever way? (e g if i’m using a compressor for mastering, this ability would be necessary to make an accurate reproduction)

Good luck !!
Anyway, whatever the method, each addition (effects, notes, samples) will have incidences on the length of the song (kbytes) and your chiptune won’t be a chip-tune anymore...

Using a mixing program to just EQ the channels, and reconstruct the xm accordingly by changing the instruments will hardly make the tune bigger though. That might be usable, but a virtual compressor routine might take up too much bytes.. i don’t know.
