Chances are, if you're really going to get the most out of Pocket Music, you fit one of these two categories:
(a) You want to have a fun little tool to make some music for fun with, knowing full well that the songs never leave your GBA. You just want a moderately easy way to make your own tunes.
(b) You use other tools to produce higher-quality music, and you want to use Pocket Music as a sketchpad to do some composing on the go. When you get to your normal production area, you can take a look at your riffs in Pocket Music and just re-create everything.
I fit the second category, and that's why I'm really able to appreciate Pocket Music for what it is...a highly capable 6-track tool for composing basic song ideas and nothing more. This is simply not a tool that you'd ever actually record from. The sound quality simply is not good enough, and the levels are too low, for you to take anything you make here and actually record it. So if that's what you want this for, then you're likely to be disappointed.
The built in samples themselves are quite diverse, so you'll find all sorts of sounds to work with...including a ton of different guitar sounds, bass sounds, percussion sounds, impressive synth sounds, eletronic blips and blops, some basic vocal samples, etc. You can take these samples into the Riff Editor and do the actual composing. The Riff Editor is a simple "piano-roll" step-sequencer with 6 octaves...so you'll have no problem putting together the melodies you want to put together very quickly.... Read more ›
