The name is lame but it's what I came up with when I first pitched for this idea. It's something that has been cooking up in my head since the first FM Synth compo.

As the name implies it would be a compo focused on wavetable (not sample-based) formats, which currently include

  • PC-Engine/TurboGrafx-16
  • Gameboy
  • NSF+ (N-163 and FDS)
Also some ambiguous formats that works given it's reinforced in the rules the focus on using simple waveforms:
  • PxTone
  • mod(x)k
  • Wildchip

  • This could also make opportunity for a MSX format. Tools like TriloTracker and mgsdrv could allow for using the SCC soundchip. Also Virtual Boy, if this
    is already released by the time the compo happens. Also GXSCC

    Wavetable chiptunes have a really unique sound to them and I really think it would be nice to have a compo focused on it, mainly after seeing what people in this website can do with it. So yea, pls make it happen!

    There is also the DPC chip for Atari 2600 (VCS). Music source is available for the DPC demo on AtariAge.

    do you know i have the hardest time figuring out how to best utilise chips that have wavetable synthesis (rather embarrassing admission but there you go)
    so perhaps i could do with looking it square in the face!
    or triangle in the face... bell in the face
