about

This time I wanted to add some 'live' elements to tracked chiptune music. Trackers are cool but making some improvised solos is much better played "by hand", in real-time.
To compare the pure tracker chiptunes with their 'live' versions I split this album into two parts - tracker and 'live'.
Those have been made with NES / Famicom.
Also, I added some bonus-traxx - covers made with ZX Spectrum and toy-keyboards and synths. Enjoy. :-P

All the keyboards/synths parts have been played 100% live without any sequencing.

Video clip from this album is here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=hd7CbfO0Eu8
It has been made by PixelNation for my NES/Famicom song "Roller-Coaster Ride".
Starring (haha) - me & my girlfriend Kate. :-P And numerous game-consoles. :)

Hardware used ->

Game-consoles and computers:
- Famicom AV
- ZX Spectrum 128

Toy-keyboards and synths:
- Korg Monotron Delay
- CASIO SA-5
- Yamaha PSS-51
- Novation Mininova


Some concerts where we play chiptune and lo-fi music 'live', with synthesizers and drums:

Yerzmyey

I make chiptunes on ZX Spectrum computer since 1989. Its AY chip offers 4-bit sound, 3 channels + white noise generator, square wave and several 'buzzers'. Or 3 channels of 4-bit digital sound, but then I have to fit all samples in 48Kb of RAM. :) My other machines: Amiga 500, Amiga 1200, Atari Falcon 030, NES/Famicom, Raspberry Pi and others. The bands I founded: AY-RIDERS and also YM-DIGITAL. ... more
