That is interesting; sometimes it reminds me the PSS-270 micro-musician (which is good smile ).

Do you use toy keyboards too? It sounds like MCU Holtek chip that is present in some newer CASIO toys.

Anyway, I find it relaxing and I even sent it to a friend of mine.

OK, so it would seem like there is a voting now.

Thank you for the information.

So I added my entry http://battleofthebits.org/arena/Entry/ … ift/16364/

Good luck all. smile

Count me in.


I do not know whether I mentioned it before but sometimes there is a bug in the portal's engine.

I made some title (did not know it was already used by somebody), so I changed it and added "!!".
But the old name still is present as a link.

Hence, having a song http://chipmusic.org/mister+beep/music/bit-by-bit , I am still getting messages about... another song, haha. wink About this one - http://chipmusic.org/music/view/bit-by-bit

Maybe it could be repaired somehow, I don't know.

Mister Beep is Polish too isn't he?

I would not say so.

There are several chiptune musicians (some of them even pretty well-known sometimes) based in PL but not considered Polish musicians in fact (and even haven't been mentioned here because of that) but rather international, in a way.

As for me, there are no 1-bit music fans in Poland, so I do not make music for Polish people.
And I was born in the circuits of Timex Computer 2048, hahaha. smile

Heh, thanks mate. smile

Well, for now I make some more 'melodic' chiptunes, for a change, but will return to the art-rock for sure. smile

Meanwhile - yes, I don't let the Timex rest in peace. wink


The main song has been made with Phaser1 and the intro has been made with GarageBeep -

Finally I dusted my TIMEX SINCLAIR 2068. It is a very rare ZX Spectrum 48K clone, coming from America.

Sadly for full ZX compatibility, or for compatibility with Timex Computer 2048, it requires a special cartridge (I do not have it, regretfully), but some software still works without it, after all.

I tested several chiptune songs made in several different 1-bit / BEEPER engines. The engines are accessible in the newest "BEEPOLA" program.

SAVAGE works very very fast. Almost in a non-acceptable way. What is strange – it still maintains the correct pitch. Ha.

Corrected MUSIC BOX from Beepola (the version working properly with drum, after compiling) actually does not work at all. The songs are lacerated somehow. I was able to recognize the original songs in those ‘stumps’ but only because I know my tunes.
A pity anyway.

Phaser1, Octode and Qchan work perfectly well. I do not know any matters related with hardware, however I could swear there were no “contention” ugly effects in Qchan and Octode. So – considering this and the fact that Timex 2068 sound quality is very good, I even consider recording some my songs from the machine. To get it to work finally. wink

PS: As for my experiments made in 2010, we know that also The Music Synth and SampleTracker 2.0 work perfectly well.

PS.2: The Walkman player was my equivalent of the tape-recorder / data mass-storage. :-)

PS.3: But anyway I still LOVE the most my TIMEX COMPUTER 2048! Yesssss! wink

Thank you so much, my friends - it's nice to know that people appreciate old good Spectrum48. smile
This machine CAN be useful sometimes, if operated well. wink wink wink wink

Cheers, Irrlicht! smile
I do appreciate your kind words.
(AND - I wait for your new 1-bit album by the way, haha wink ).

Yes, it is a problem with 1-bit music. You have not actual volumes. Hence - I was not able to add the hi-hat: it would be SO loud that it would 'cover' all the rest of the music. sad  I tested it then. I had to resign from hi-hats at all, in the demo.

Thank you once again, you are most kind.

Best regards,

Thank you. smile
But for now I think I will return to chiptune music, for a while. smile
Nevertheless there will be some time for SampleTracker too, I am sure. smile smile

Thanks man. smile

And by the way, you would have to be an owner of some crap loudspeakers because then it would actually sound the best, haha. smile

Thanks mate. smile smile

Yes, you are right, the recordings have been slightly EQ-ed, with getting the trebles lower.

The funny thing is, I had to do this in order to make them sound 100% exactly like it sounds from my Timex2048 and regular Creative crap speakers (while I'm composing, haha). smile

So that is how it sounds at my home. wink

Well, not actually a release, because it is a ZX Spectrum 48Kb program, but still the recordings have been added on the bottom of the text, so...


DOWNLOAD: http://mister_beep.republika.pl/Digi_pop.zip

This is a 1-bit / BEEPER music collection for
unexpanded ZX Spectrum 48K platform.
The demo contains 3 fully digital 1-bit songs, 3 channels based.
Composed on SampleTracker 2.1.

People complains sometimes that there is too few pop-song
for BEEPER. So here you are several more, now.
I don't usually make this style in my Beeper songs, so I tried
to make something similar to popular AY or Amiga tunes.

"M" key for music. "Q" key to quit and go to the next part.

The music-collection has been made in 02.2014.


Music and gfx converting by MISTER BEEP

Code by TK90X FAN


While listening make the trebles low, in your hi-fi. Unless you use
Spectrum +2A/+2B/+3, then probably you don't need it.

Here is the soundtrack, recorded from real hardware (trebles have
been made lower to a degree) -
01. Automatic Girlfriend
02. Stellar Cruiser Assault
03. Hypervelocity Stars

If you get the trebles lower, it can sound even better.
