Hi Menerv,

How do you run it, through Rosetta (select the app, press Command-I and tick the "Open using Rosetta" check box)?

Good news!

Yes, I agree with you, it can be a monotonous task to listen to the whole song every time you want to export it, but normally you only do this once, when you have finished your song. And while exporting, you can use Live Mode (press TAB) which allows you to apply live effects while recording a WAV 😉

Please can you send me your .1bd file and the resulting .wav file?

Hi WanSou

if there are looped regions, they are played repeatedly during recording.

Are you on Mac, Windows, or Linux?

This video shows version 2. The accompaniments have been improved in version 3, try to do as in this video:

Thank you for the inspiration Junior Senior.

At the moment, it is not possible to change the duration of the notes. Some instruments play notes with a duration of 1 sixteenth note (one square in the grid). Others have a longer duration, which can be 2 sixteenth notes (e.g., electric pianos) or 32 sixteenth notes (e.g., pads). There is a length symbol in the Instruments window, next to each instrument.

Thanks for the idea, it will help me improve the software.

Thank you!

1BITDRAGON uses a pentatonic scale to avoid wrong notes. Because the scale is restricted, drawing random patterns works well 🙂

I agree with you, it would be great if the user could choose a scale and key, not only to choose one of major and minor pentatonic. I'll try to do it for the next versions 🙂

Thanks for your good ideas! I will think about it for the next versions. I need to implement MIDI input first 🙂

Sorry, this is not possible. You can only try to change the scale:

Hi jhouck and thank you!

ChordLord is a very cool feature, I'll study that, thanks!

For your 2nd request, I think it's a bug because it works well on Windows and Mac. I will look at it.

Sorry, 1BITDRAGON for Linux is only tested with certain versions of Ubuntu or Centos. Also you need to make sure you have the correct video drivers for the correct GPU's. Linux System Requirements:

  • OS: Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04, and CentOS 7. Gnome desktop environment running on top of X11 windowing system.
  • Processor: x64 architecture.
  • Memory: 500 MB RAM.
  • Graphics: OpenGL 3.2+, Vulkan capable. Nvidia using Nvidia official proprietary graphics driver or AMD GPUs using AMD Mesa graphics driver.
  • Storage: 200 MB available space.

Contact me if you want a refund:


Richard, I confirm that the current version works with Rosetta 2, and a complete native Apple silicon support will be added in the next version.

What is your OS and environment (Processor, Memory, GPU)?

It's in the new version that has just been released, thanks!

Someone else had the same problem and solved it like this:

"The root cause was ulimit nofile, my system was set to 10000000, after reset it to normal(probably 1000 or 4000, didn't remember), this issue was gone."

Does this solve the problem?

Thank you Richard, I don't have a MacBook Pro M1 so it helps a lot.

Thank you Richard.

I think this log is the one created when there is no crash, because it contains no errors.

If I understood correctly, if you activate the option "Open using Rosetta", the game works fine?

Hi Richard

There is a log file there, can you please send it to me: 


Just in case, here's how to access the Library folder in macOS:

  1. Switch to the Finder.
  2. Press and hold down the Option key on the keyboard.
  3. From the Go menu, select Library. The Library folder will open.

Thank you

Hi komehara

Thank you for your feedback. Are you on Windows, Mac or Linux ? Normally Ctrl+S opens the Save Window, and the app remembers the last used path.

On exit, if state is dirty, the app prompts for save / don’t save / cancel and the app remembers the current project file path.

Thanks noeska for your suggestion, I think I will implement it in a future version.

Version 3 is available!

1BITDRAGON 3 will be released tomorrow!

1BITDRAGON 3 will be released in 5 days!⏰

I agree with you, it would be great if the user could choose a scale and key, not only to choose one of major and minor pentatonic.

I'll think about it for the next versions, even though I know it's a big job 🙀

The new version of 1BITDRAGON will be released on October 8!

I was thinking of releasing version 3 of 1BITDRAGON in August, but there is a bug with Unity (my development tool) and support told me that it will be fixed in around 4 weeks. Just need a bit of time to test it, and V3 should be out in October. Sorry for the wait!


Sorry for the moment it's not possible to do 'long' notes, but I will think about it for a next version...
