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
- NSF+ (N-163 and FDS)
Also some ambiguous formats that works given it's reinforced in the rules the focus on using simple waveforms:
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.
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!
