HOW TO – Create sound samples for Gameboy


Sebastian walks you through the process for creating sample kits for use with the Little Sound DJ sequencer cartridge on Gameboy. The small amount of memory you have to work with makes this an interesting process in its own right –

Now, in my opinion there are three places to look for space when choosing where to crop you samples. You may notice that before the initial attack portion of your sample, there may be small amount of silence or almost silence. You can delete this, of course. Not only will this give you more time, but your depending on the length that you delete from the start, your samples may sound more “in time” with the rest of LSDJ (because the sound will be starting on the beat).
