Made with the sounds of the Commodore 64 home computer.

One of those hybrid SID waveforms of mixing triangle with a thin pulse makes an appearance in this one. Sawtooth bass, very minimal PWM - just to mix up the flavour a bit. Oh, and SID 6581 R4 filter goodness in the instrumental solo.

I love a bit of reggae, even if it is watered down for pop music. Hahaha.

This is another one of those songs I heard repeatedly while spending my 20 cent pieces at the Caloundra Amusement Centre ("Pinnie Parlour").

I found that there was an unusual harmony between this song and the laser sound effects of Spave Invaders.

Who finds SID chip noise/buzz a little distracting? Or is it part of the charm. Either way here's an option. https://youtu.be/G6o-maxlvhE

Bitpop: Made with the sounds of the Commodore 64 Home Computer - Part 2 #bitpop #chiptune #music #c64 #commodore64 #vgm #pop #chip

Technical Brief I use a few core tools in creating these tracks. Some are new, some are old (and emulated). Let’s start with the old since this is where all the sound design happens. Ever since the 80’s, I have written in assembler my own C64 Music &…
