Do not listen to it.
Run if you want to live.
Run fast!

No normal man can listen to it and remain normal - or even survive - because this is THE LOWEST LO-FI possible.

OK, 1-bit fully digital music. Only 34Kb of data (samples+notes).
1 channel, software mixing to 3ch, no volumes, no sound-card, no nothing. ;) ;) ;)
Only 3,5Mhz CPU and 1-bit transducer on the output.

It gives us BEEPER *.mod-like music on regular ZX Spectrum 48K. Equals: total noise.

Do not listen to it from emulator. If you must - turn the trebles down. Almost to minimum. Emulator adds noise that is not present on real machine (well, it is but in a much smaller degree).

Composed on SampleTracker (that allows only 16 samples and 16 patterns. I used here 8 samples and 14 patterns here).

Recorded from Real Hardware for a glory of 1-bit noise.

During listening: Nice song! *DIGGING*
Right after the song has stopped, and silence appears: *OH SHIT MY EARS!*

Methinks that if I was to use Sample Tracker, I'd give it some wildchip treatment. :o

All:
Thanks my friends. :)


Brightentayle:
yes :) for example I was thinking about making something in double speed - but the tracker offers only 16 patterns - so it would be a trouble. :)


MS:
Believe or not but I have exactly the same feeling when the 1-bit digital stuff ends. :) :)

gotoandplay, weeeelll, Sample Tracker can also use AY to play songs, instead of beeper!

But I don't think it's a good choice for lenghty tracks anyways.

Thanks again, guys. :)

Hmmm. That's strange. I haven't pressed the "favorites" button - on my own song it would be strange. However I can see myself in the list. Is it any 'default' feature of BotB?
If not - is there any possibility to remove myself from it, mates?

its a feature whereby if you listen to a song enough times on botb, you end up auto-favouriting it, even your own. I've done it fair few times myself :)

Argh. I was testing the player with various computers and Internet browsers.
OK, I will remember about it next time. :) Thanks.

Thanks - at first I didn't think it would be a disco/synthpop song. ;) It came this way by itself. ;) I don't know when or how. :)

Man, so many of the entries this year are really squeezing everything out of the more limited formats (tia, beeper, vic). This is one of those entries.
