Afternoon, Cheyenne and all! Looking forward to the blips and bleeps! Will remind me of the mighty Liz Berg!

Oh. I thought it was going to sound like chipmunk records.

Hello, Cheyenne, partying listeners, the mildly curious.

For reasons unbeknowst to Cthulhu, I've never asked what the Comments field abreviations stand for.

Thanks Cheyenne, time to go back to work, see you on the other side (or at least that monitor).

NP, northguineahills, happy trails!

Howdy herrprof & melinda! Thanks for coming by!
Avatar    Tue. 10/24/17 3:17pm Cheyenne:

yep, webhamster. maybe chiptune should've been called squarewave..?

Hello friends, fiends and fronds

i helped curate the first year of fma stuff, super happy to see that people still like this junk.

Well... at least I do. And thank you for your service!!!

Thank you for burning up the airwaves!

Thanks for listening :)

no thank you

yesss, Goto80
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/24/17 3:26pm Webhamster Henry:

Do you know if any of these are done on original lo-fi hardware? This one sounds authentic!
Avatar    Tue. 10/24/17 3:27pm Cheyenne:

This guy, 505, specialized in Atari chiptunes so I'm guessing yes - but I'm sure quite a few use synthesized/sampled sounds.

Also, thanks James for the comment - it's definitely a multiplayer affair!

Can't wait for beer o'clock!
  Tue. 10/24/17 3:36pm herrprof:

@webhamster - lots of it is! Goto80 does a lot of his music on the commodore 64 for example. There are a bunch of modern tools that lets you sound authentic using plugins like chipsounds, or programs that lets you work on a modern computer but render to something that can play on vintage hardware like famitracker.
Avatar    Tue. 10/24/17 3:42pm Cheyenne:

@herrprof that is super interesting! thank you for sharing
Avatar    Tue. 10/24/17 3:43pm Cheyenne:

this one's for you, @northguineahills!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/24/17 3:43pm Stanley:

Funny stuff this chipmunk music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/24/17 3:43pm Webhamster Henry:

The restricted capability of the SID chip is akin to strictures on poetry, like sonnets and haiku.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/24/17 3:44pm Stanley:

..but strangely hypnotic.
Avatar    Tue. 10/24/17 3:45pm Cheyenne:

I think it's amazing how much emotion and depth can be conveyed with such a limited palette of sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/24/17 3:46pm listener james from westwood:

Limits spark creativity!
  Tue. 10/24/17 3:47pm herrprof:

also makes you really learn your instrument! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/24/17 3:47pm northguineahills:

Thanks Cheyenne! One of my old good friends, Glomag, is a pioneer of the old chiptune genre. I know either you or someone else on the GTDS stream played him and posted a link to his latest album. (I've been out of touch since leaving NYC).
Avatar    Tue. 10/24/17 3:50pm Cheyenne:

'twasn't me, but that's awesome!

Hi, Cheyenne and party people!

Hi KenFHP!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/24/17 3:55pm Webhamster Henry:

@ngh My daughter and I just did a project with Glomag yesterday, but not in the Glomag mode, in the grade-z horror movie mode.
Avatar    Tue. 10/24/17 3:55pm Sem Chumbo:

Today's show has been a delight! Thanks, Cheyenne.
Avatar    Tue. 10/24/17 3:55pm Cheyenne:

Thanks Sem for listening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/24/17 3:58pm listener james from westwood:

Always a fun ride but especially loved this sampler!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/24/17 3:58pm northguineahills:

@Webmaster Henry: awesome, yeah, his latest album is all horror movie soundtracks. Thanks Cheyenne!
