Rather a curiosity than real music, isn't it. wink
THE LOWEST LO-FI possible, like I used to say.

OK, 1-bit fully digital music. Only 34Kb of data (samples+notes). From the computer that offers only 48Kb of Ram. wink
1 channel, software mixing to 3ch, no volumes, no sound-card, no nothing. wink wink wink
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.

There is no point, for example, to listen to it from emulator. Beeper has far too much trebles and on the emulators there is added even more noise - that is not present on real machine (well, it is but in a much smaller degree).

Actually the most reasonable machine for recording would be ZX Spectrum +2a/+2b/+3. They have the best Beeper sound.
Although I recorded it from Timex Computer 2048 (my +2A is dead). Hence - I had to add some correction that I use typically at home, while listening ZX demos (well, actually nothing that any owner of retro-hardware doesn't use on daily basis).

Composed on SampleTracker (that allows only 16 samples and 16 patterns).

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

Lovely! big_smile

Thanks a lot again. smile

I admire when someone pulls an awesome song out of very limited hardware, and you've done just that!

Thank you all very much, I do appreciate your kindness.

PS: Even the stuff with mice, haha. smile I will use it. wink "A mice song, man". Haha. smile

Impressive stuff, man! Love ZX work... I've been dabbling in it recently.

Incredible stuff!
