New Video! “How to do it! 8-Bit Worker” by Lucky Button Pusher!

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Lucky Button Pusher has made us a new video! “How to do it! 8-Bit Worker” shows you how to build a song live in Rhythm Core Alpha 2, complete with captions explaining the process!

Thanks again to Lucky Button Pusher! We are forever in your debt!

Here is a PDF of the Manual!

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

Folks on YouTube have been asking for a manual they can download and print, so we took what we had and made a PDF. You can get it here:

Rhythm Core Alpha 2 – User Manual

This is based on a draft version and doesn’t include edits that were made later to the version included in the product, so please refer to the internal version of the manual if there are any inconsistencies or errors.

Right now we are very busy, but remind us and we will try to get the other languages manuals up as well!

 

Rhythm Core Alpha 2 is out in Europe and Australia as of NOW!

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ just came out in Europe! Just now! Within the last 8 hours or so! And it has been out ALL DAY in Australia already! And, of course, it has been out in the Americas since June!
What are you waiting for? Go get it now!

Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ will be released in Europe and Australia on August 15th!

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

We are pleased to announce that the European version of Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ has passed all Nintendo testing and is due to be released in those territories on August 15th. That includes the UK, all of Europe, and Australia!

We are very excited to finally release in Europe and Australia! We can’t wait to hear what kind of music you can make!

Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ will be available as a download for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DSi game systems in the Nintendo eShop or Nintendo DSiWare store. The price in Europe will be 10 euros, or 1000 Nintendo Points.

Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ is the most full-featured music sequencer / solo instrument available for Nintendo game platforms, designed for creating and playing music live. It includes a traditional drum grid and piano-roll style sequencer, a solo mode with 10 different variations for playing instruments live, a drum screen for playing drums, a mixer screen for controlling levels, and a pattern mode for arranging loops and chord changes to form complete songs.

It contains many synthesis capabilities like ADSR envelopes for volume and pitch, a powerful vibrato/arpeggio feature, and per-track echo.

The buttons can be redefined to change the key and scale of your sequences, and/or jump to different loops or different sections of the pattern (song), a feature that is unique among music software programs on any platform.

There is a full set of editing features for copying notes and beats that is not available in any other Nintendo music tool.

For these reasons, we believe that Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ is the most powerful music program on any game platform, and the most compelling program for the creation of live music.

Nintendo requires changes to artwork… possible release date (for Americas)?

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

Nintendo sent back errors in the screenshots and videos. I sent in new ones. I was told that the earliest that we can ship in the Americas is the 20th of June, so I have asked for that date. Hopefully nothing will prevent that!

While I was fixing up the video I added proper credit to Lucky Button Pusher with old MTV-style corner credits (I even looked up the font they used!) and added some space sounds to the previously soundless end titles sequence. The space sounds were all made with Rhythm Core Alpha 2, of course!
Just little things, but they took six hours to do… I missed the Nintendo server by five minutes (down for maintenance each day) and now I have to wait till 1 am to do the upload.

Rhythm Core Alpha 2 3DS eShop Video

3DS and Europe

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

The original Rhythm Core Alpha was added to the 3DS store pretty much automatically, I didn’t have to do anything special. I thought Nintendo was telling me I had to file a separate project sheet for the 3DS, but as it turns out I don’t need a separate project sheet for 3DS after all, I just need to send them 3DS eShop art. I have received a game code for Europe and will submit as soon as the US is approved!

Rhythm Core Alpha easier to find in European 3DS eShop!

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Rhythm Core Alpha is now listed under “Music and Rhythm Games” (or your local translation of such) in the Nintendo 3DS eShop for Europe! We are about in the middle of the list! Now everybody in Europe, the UK, and Australia can more easily find and get the best music program on a Nintendo portable!
