Yeah, it's definitely worth looking into, since it's the only thing that's stopping me from having my own music in my hack, haha. :)
You're probably right, I may well have, in passing or something :P Haha, thanks, I suppose that's good then. I've never really thought about doing anything else, so.. yeah. XD It's probably similar, seeing as I'm dealing with a lot of people around secondary-school age for the most part, so that's a good point. :D
The only thing you need for mod 15 is that annoying oac... Whatever file, and Sappy 2006, then it's kinda like an update, copy and paste the mod16 to the same folder as Sappy 2006, and it should work.
It's kinda interesting. You may have heard of The Specials but only very vaguely, most known for Ghost Town which was a song about unemployment in the 80s, as well as Free Nelson Mandela (yet this was a version of The Specials which only had 2 of the original members). And that's good, I can imagine you as a teacher, I suppose being a moderator is good practice!
Ahhh, okay. The way you explain it is actually quite clear, so thanks :P It's just a bit of a bother trying to download a Sappy that works with my laptop. 2005 works but then I have to download INIs and stuff that are pretty much impossible to find, and when you find files you think are good chances are it's riddled with viruses and so on XD I've to look into the mod 15 of it, though, since.. to my knowledge, I've never done so.
Yeah, I mean the good thing about my course is, I did English along with the other two subjects for the past year, and to my knowledge that let's me teach it to a certain level once I get my degree, even though I only did it for a year. And yeah, I've heard of Madness all right, but I've never really heard of the genre or anything relating to it XD Sounds interesting, though!
It's easier with the mod 15 of Sappy, as I just save the track to replace as a MIDI, then using that template of instruments I kinda just copy and paste the music I want over it, and then transform it into a .s file and Assemble. If it sounds right, I go about preparing it to loop by making all tracks I want to loop the same length, and finding the bar and note where I want to loop back to. Then NotePad is used to open it, skip to the bar number (minus 1 due to it beginning at 0 not 1), add a name (like LOOP_1) at the point I want, go to the end of the track and add
(I think), before it says .byte end, and repeat for all tracks. That's my way (I also posted it here so I remember what I did in order to do it to begin, it makes sense to me). Still need to do Voicegroups though...
I know what you mean about that. I'm the same, I'm thinking of going into teaching too, and my course allows me to be more flexible so I can teach Maths and/or Economics. So yay! And yeah, 2-Tone ska is a type of music, associated with Madness (earlier Madness albums anyway), The Specials and other bands you may not have heard of.
Oooooh, that sounds awesome. I've looked into Music insertion time and time again, and I guess I understood SOME of it, but looping things just... screws me over entirely, haha. Which is a shame, because I plan on having my hack use 100% custom music (since I can at LEAST make it, haha).
Yeah, it's a bit "Lol, what can you possibly get from that?". But I mean I'll definitely be teaching once I finish college, so it feels valid, at the very least. :P That... sounds beyond interesting, haha, even if I have no idea what it is XD But sure, you never know when knowledge of a certain topic can come in useful :P
Turns out earlier I kinda lied about just doing Tile Inserting, as I am actually OK at Music Inserting (thought I'd have forgot all about it in the last few months, but apparently not), so yay!
And Irish, nice. If there was a high variety in History I may have took that instead, but the MORSE course does everything I want (Then again, I can't use my strange knowledge about the 2-Tone ska music scene that helped racial tension get eased in the UK... Ah well, could be used as some Music Economist job)
Haha, probably a wise choice. And really? That's.. interesting, I suppose. :3
Cool, cool. My Irish course this year will be KINDA pick'n'mixy as I'll be choosing a lot of modules myself (basically different areas in Irish History and Literature and so on). It's interesting enough, though last year one of my lecturers was absolutely... blah. THE WORST. SO DAMN BORING.
Exactly why I avoided it in A-Levels... Also due to dodgy hearing now and then which made the mock GCSE's fun as my left ear refused to work (gave me some of my best grades in music though...)
And yeah, it is quite numbery, and very strange as it is a pick 'n' mix of a course. The course is able to be tailored around individuals due to the ability to choose the modules you take (apart from the core ones), so most chances are, everyone will have different areas of specialisation.
Yeah, I really like Irish and can speak it relatively fluently so it's not TOO hard, but Music can be a beeeeeeetch. Very classically oriented (naturally) and they kinda expect a lot of you in terms of appreciation, even if a piece is utter CRAP.
Oh jesus, rather YOU than me, in that case XD That sounds.. numbery. Great if you like it, but it sounds like a LOT of stuff I'd only like in moderation, haha.
And lol, I wouldn't have known what the letters stood for, but I don't think I'd have drawn either of those conclusions XD
