Hi.

A classic MOD-style this time. Ah well.

I'm always interested in pushing classic computers to their limits.
This time I was given this opportunity by Paulo Simoes who programmed the Hex-Tracker 849a.

This song has been made on a pure ATARI TT, a machine released in 1990, with 4Mb of RAM, 8-bit sound quality, with 2 hardware digi-channels only.
The trick it - Hex gives 16 channels, using the Atari's 32Mhz Motorola CPU.
(Can make more but with a substantial sound quality reduction).

This song is a MOD format and has all its limitations (8 bit samples, only 64Kb for a sample, only 31 samples in the module, octaves limitation) but the only difference - are those 16 channels in the MOD (software mixing).
Another (very painful) disadvantage is lacking of FineTune ability (that is present in Amiga/PC MOD format).

Recorded from real hardware (that originally has only 2 digi-channels, haha).

Just a curiosity for old computers' lovers, I presume.

Enjoy, if possible.

It's my first time listening to Atari computer sound. A lot of Amigas entered in Brazil, but I guess almost none of Atari was imported in those years. I'm amazed with how good it could sound. Very good work, Yerz!

Hey! I'm soooooooooooo drunk at the moment (it's weekend in Poland, You know) so I'd just like to thank to all the "1-bit music forum" and the "BotB" guys who gave here the "favorites" because I realize it is not an _actual_ chiptune (and I'm sorry about it) but BotB seems to be **the last** portal in the Internet where people are really interested in hearing what is like to push old machines (80s/90s) to their f*cking limits, also in the MOD mode. ;)
Take care!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =8-D

This is great, it gets better and better the more times you listen.

I love the old school synth and of course the orchestral stabs :)

BotB needs more classic Euro demoscene music like this... Love all the effort (and orch hits too of course)
