Since 2014, i've been making music on a DMG-01 - the original Nintendo GameBoy released in 1989 - using a program called LSDJ. This is a simple tracker that allows you to write chains of phrases for each of the four voices of the DMG-01's sound chip. The somewhat strict (yet pretty generous) restrictions of the four channels - two pulses, wav synth/4-bit sample and noise - and the program itself always felt great in terms of music making: as a synth nerd, i frequently need my focus forced to make actual music instead of tweaking another synth sound, which trackers, especially hardware-specific ones, excel at.

I made a good few pure chiptune (and chiptune + amenbreak layer, which we call chipbrek) albums over the years and released them at BleepLove or my own Elysian Tunes, as well as used LSDJ running on a DMG-01 in some other works. This page hosts pretty much everything that i made up to this day, and will get updated whenever i [hopefully] release something else. LSDJ stores songs in its .sav data - same as other gameboy games store the user's save data. Inside a .sav there may be up to 32 songs, exportable from a .sav to separate .lsdsng (LSDJ song) files, using LSDManager. The same tool can be used to put a selection of .lsdsng's into a .sav to further flash it to a smart card with LSDJ ROM on it, or put next to the .gb file when running off an emulator. In both cases, you obviously will need an LSDJ .gb (ROM) file, which is freely available, too.

You can download individual .lsdsng files by pressing the download button next to the track you want, or you can download a ready-made .sav with all the tracks by clicking the cartridge. You can use these to make remixes of my songs, explore the way i made them, etc etc - but don't be an asshat and credit me if you use this in your creative work! These rules basically apply to all the LSDJ data, just replace "sample packs" with "SAVs" and "samples" with "LSDSNGs". If you end up making a remix or an alt-version of my song, definitely let me know!

Astro The Fox scraps, 2014-2022


Three .sav files chock-full of LSDJ scraps and drafts of various quality and progress stage. Some are almost finished songs, some are five notes dialed into a pattern and that's it. Presented here for historical and entertainment reasons rather than for actual useful reasons. Still, feel free to use these as samples or make your own songs out of these, but naturally, credit me if you end up releasing or playing whatever you make out of these!
