Macrotune is a "Music Macro Language" (MML) editor. If you like creating "retro" style computer/game music, then this is the app for you.

Macrotune features four MML editors with syntax coloring. Each channel has its own start/default options. These settings can be altered throughout your tune with the Music Macro Language. A time signature gadget that allows you to visually see the current beats per measure in the editors while you type. There's also a pattern editor to piece together your verses for each channel. Each verse is written on its own line in the editors.

You can copy your MML data to the clipboard for use in PureBasic with the PSG Module, share your tunes on forums using "Copy MML" and "Paste MML", or even export as a Wave (*.wav) file. There's four demo tunes to help you understand how the app works. A project info box for the author's name, song title, copyright or even notes for yourself. It also includes a help file and the PSG Module code.

You can also use the same "Programmable Sound Generator" (PSG) that Macrotune uses in your preferred programming language! Just download the "PSG dylib & dll" from the PoseMotion website. There's also a Windows 32-bit (XP+) and Windows 98 version of the app on the website.
