gwEm / PHF releases booTribe

gwEm writes:

This is a different sort of production from me. You could call it a musical toy. I’ve been inspired by the drum machine of the Korg Monotribe, and have combined it with STj into an executable boot sector. Unlike my 128byte productions, which are more or less pure demos in that they are concept investigations, this one could actually be quite useful to musicians and live performers.

A list of the features may help to explain more:

* STj like tempo control for precise DJ beatmatching
* Three drum sounds
* 16 steps (use shift to access odd steps, alike to Korg Monotribe)
* MIDI clock output
* Very fast loading – due to boot sector implementation
* GEMDOS file system still supported (use it with STj in auto folder no problem)
* No screen required

The new features are:

* Added support for NTSC TOS versions.
* Modified selection of Lazy/Loop/Cue mode
* Removed some graphics to reduce memory usage and disk space

Enjoy all!
