I bet you don’t find songs with such lyrics as this:
The ancient art of scan conversion
He’s the guy who holds the truth
rubber ducks and chequered doughnuts
never looked so silky smooth
Eliminate those jagged edges
cutting corners is our game
Interpolate those surface normals
that’s the way he made his name
However, the best part is
I = IaKa + Ip[Kd(N·L)+Ks(R·V)n]

It reminds me to something but I can’t quite remember right now…

There’s no preference setting for this in the main program, but schism stores these settings in a little file which you can find in ~/.schism/config if you’re using linux. There you can change all sorts of stuff without having to write a long command line with lots of parameters each time you run the tracker. But what concerns us is the [Audio] section:
I changed mine to 4096 as you can see, and the horrible cracked sound that I was getting just disappeared. It might feel a little laggy now but I’m not using schism for jamming or anything, so it’s fine for the time being.
Somebody else suggested using a switch like “-a hw:0” when launching schism, so that it would select the first hardware device, but it either doesn’t work like that or pulseaudio is monopolising every device.
Working suggestions are welcome, although not urgently needed ;-)
And here’s another person enjoying what she does! I’m not sure what impresses me more: the playing technique or the hair-do. But considering the video is from 1976, let’s just pay attention to the music. I can’t distinguish it very well but I would say she’s wearing some kind of metal nails on her right hand to pick the strings. Either that or she just has developed ultrahard nails:
This is just so hilarious! I have always found Macca super funny and I love how he shows he’s enjoying what he does. Super!
