Here's some Saga FM fun. Don't know if you call it 'chip'tune or 'fake bit', demo clip for a Saga FM VST. 

The sweet thing about the VST is it can serve as a UI for the Littlescale GenMDMidi interface to produce the same sounds on actual HW :)

As for the harmonica, whichever blog said it was a real NES chip were telling lies! Still sounds awesome though.

@ Smithy TNKs for the headsup with Diode mA's EP, lov'n the AT ][ tracking.

 Here is something thats more 'computer music' then chip; not VSTi but HW DSP (so it's made on a chip; in a loose way)

Made with DSP Modular Synth plugins for the Kx Driver; KXM.

Back Ground: the Kx driver project is replacement drivers for SB Live and Audigy sound cards. These cards are DSP based and are very capable. Stylus has developed Modular synth micro-code plugins for the DSP that just blow me away.

I feel cool for having heard of Diode mA three days before one of his songs went viral:

Look at the views! Though I suspect it got posted somewhere with the tag "DOS dubstep" and that's why everyone watched it... :shifty:

:P

It was posted to reddit's r/videos and went viral from there, articles appeared on synthopia, Vice, and elsewhere shortly after that.

There was no dubstep tag, it was the MS-DOS keyword that did the trick. :)

He gave MIDIbox FM and sammichFM a mention in the Vice article:

Really enjoyed the last 2 contributions, keep the good music coming!

Time for some Sega Master System love.

Did a play-through of Sonic 1 yesterday for the first time since the early 90s.

Not only is it one of the most gorgeous looking games on the system but the music has some beautiful melodies too.

Yuzo Koshiro was on duty for this one, can't remember if I shared my admiration for this composer earlier in the the thread. He is one of my favourite chiptune composers, his work on Streets Of Rage and Revenge of Shinobi on the Sega Genesis is amazing.

The Scrap brain Zone is my favourite...

Followed closely by The Bridge Zone...

So on my facebook feed earlier,

up popped Chipzel offering 100 free download codes for her latest album Disconnected:

Was one of the lucky ones to get myself a code. 

The album was actually released back in February but somehow slipped under my radar!
