MasterPlayer

MasterPlayer is a Adlib and OPL3 music and sound editor for the PC, created by my good friend Peter Jørgensen (aka FedePede04) back around 1994 – 1997. I only contributed to the program with some “character-graphics”, that was created with the ANSI/ASCII text-editor program ‘TheDraw‘.

My work

Most of my songs made in MasterPlayer was remakes of the old ‘Editor’ scores from Commodore Amiga. Most of the converted songs has been converted as-is, like on an assembly line, so none of the mood or feeling from the original song has been “converted” to.

Most of my songs made in ‘MasterPlayer’ was remakes of the old ‘Editor’ scores from Commodore Amiga. Most of the converted songs has been batch converted, almost all in one week. The original songs all contained samples that was standard on the Commodore Amiga – but not in ‘MasterPlayer’. This all meaning that I haven’t been able to transfer the mood nor the feeling from the original song to the new song.

Thou I did produce some new songs in MasterPlayer, but I don’t think that any of these are in a state to publish yet. As always I’m not a chiptune-sound-making-kind-of-guy, I only do the score.

Someday I might upload some of the original Commodore Amiga ‘Editor’ songs, otherwise you’ll have to visit my YouTube channel to get hold of those.
