Remember ‘Music 2000’? This Video Explores The Sony Playstation’s Music Making Game

It's the perfect tool for creating the retro sounds being revived on dance floors.

Some of you may remember Music 2000 for PlayStation, a beat-making program that launched in 1998. In it, players navigate a grid of sound channels, effects and even a video sequencer, whose kitschy and lo-fi quality could now be considered to be pretty retro.

Even though Music 2000 has been eclipsed by a number of other more advanced platforms for manipulating samples and making beats, it can still be a fun tool to use for producing more throwback-style tracks, like the rave, jungle and trance that’s currently experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Or, alternatively, grime tracks, considering that the program was an influential DAW for producers working in that genre.

Synthopia tipped us off to a recently uploaded video by YouTube user ChrisLody that looks at Music 2000 and provides a tutorial for those of you who want to reminisce about the good old days of music and gaming—or who want to give their productions a seriously vintage edge. Watch it in full above.
