After 4 years of waiting, Codemasters is finally producing MTV Music Generator 4, the latest game in the series. This time Codemaster is coming back to its origins and MTV Music Generator 4 will now focus on the music producing side again, rather than the remixing one like in MTV Music Generator 3: This Is The Remix.
This is due to the high demand for a new version of MTV Music Generator similar to the first one but all samples from the second and higher amount of RAM. In fact Codemaster has posted a screenshot and it seems that they are making an improved version of MTVMG1:
Obviously there are some changes. There are some graphical improvements as you can see, while some other graphics are similar. However, the biggest improvement in the new upcoming program is that all sound samples and riffs from the two first MTVMG as well as the original MUSIC software are included, with about 8000 new samples and 2000 riffs as well. From information I got, they are also adding a new feature that allow you to create your own vocals by entering text, that the program convert into lyrics. You can change the pitch of every part of the vocals and change the person voice. There will not be any increase in amount of sound channels, though. In the options it will be possible to switch the scrolling so it is vertical instead of horizontal. Unfortunately this program will still not include backward compatibility with previous programs, meaning you cannot load a MTV Music Generator 2 memory card song in MTV Music Generator 4.
The game is due to come out this summer for the Playstation 2. We do not know yet if there will be versions for the Playstation 3, Xbox or Xbox 360.
