    There is a severe lack of 16DR here.

    16 Dimensional records is home to some amazing chip tune/style music, and all of it is free too.

    Everything by Dong is brilliant.

    after a few beers in the pub, I thought I'd check out his site.

    And came across this - parallax & Lightforce

    Sorry, but Fucking hell! The man's a genius!

    In fact, here's a quote from the page you can get the above mp3 from -

    "In order to create this mix, I had to adjust the tempo of both tracks, and then re-tune one of them to fit the key of the other. Changing the tempo was easy; since SID files contain 6502 machine code, all I had to do was locate the initialization subroutine of each tune, and add a few assembly language instructions to set up the CIA timer registers.

    Then I had to re-tune one of the songs, and it ended up being Parallax. Luckily, the playroutine relied upon a frequency table that was rather easy to locate within the SID file. I wrote a program that would read the table from the file, multiply each value with a tuning factor, and then write the new table back to the file. Finding the correct tuning factor was a matter of trial-and-error."

    I don't wish to be rude, but wtf! Fucking hell! The man's on fire

    The guy just gets better. It's all boss.

    He's just done thing on a spring too recently - couple of bum notes, but it's still absolutely brilliant

    Looks like he's starting to take requests too - I *need* to hear knuckle busters and parallax. Amongst the other billion awesome sid tunes :)

    I've had to come back to edit this post - I was listening to the international karate one whilst typing, and now I've got to the 7minute mark - Jesus.H.Christ.

    Awesome!

    Also, Knucklebusters remix

    Listening to it now, starts off well, and trying to decide if it's better than the original.

    You wait, times passes...

    Actually, I don't think it's as good as the original. But it's still pretty good though.

    Hubbard even worked wonders on the humble Mega Drive.

    Some awful awful murdering of classics going on in that amiga link. You should probably delete it :)
  • Deleted user 1 April 2011 22:50:43
    Also I'd take the Speccy version of Spellbound all day long. The c64 one was a flangy, trying to be too fancy mess.

    Isn't it just. Pretty embarrassing tbh.
  • Deleted user 1 April 2011 23:18:54
    I was only joking! I had a listen to the Turrican II ones and they were a bit rubbish, might have been some good stuff there.

    It's the C64 Spellbound one that hurt my brain.
  • Deleted user 2 April 2011 08:00:24
    "Speccy music" isn't a fair term, it makes most people think of the horrible beeper inside the 16/48 Speccy. The AY chip in the 128 sounded _ace_, take a look on YT for 128 demos. Definitely not as iconic as the SID, but in the right hands, it produced this quality sound I loved.

    I think the Atari ST used the same chip or a version of it, it really could produce ace chiptunes.
