Thanks Garvalf for the link.

Some great tracks on it, very inventive and interesting.

Love the X-Bass on Beep Hunters, it really improves the track.

Lofi samples and plip plop engine on Don't fear the Beeper !
Love at the first Beep - cool mixing and stereo effects.
More lofi samples and AY drums over the beeper music on other tracks.
Like the Red Sector intro too (improved mixing from the Dihalt version) and Teddybear's Funeral with its multiple engines.

Great Stuff smile

Btw utz, was your track the one you played a few seconds of at this years IVP during your beeper engine presentation ?

Hehe that's great, thanks Garvalf. I'll try and figure out how to put a new 1-bit track on the board.

Well done utz, deserved win. Great track as always. I liked all the others too. Would never have guessed the earthshaker engine for headbanger. I thought it was maybe phaser 3.

My track was created very quickly in 1 session into the early hours of the morning so didn't have as much time as I usually put in. I did try and write something that I thought might appeal to the party goers though smile

Best score I've ever received for a track in that compo smile

Four entries now smile

Just testing the 'Garvuino' now.

Wow, sound output is fantastic, crisp, clear and accurate. It plays the Phaser 1 demo track flawlessly. Can't wait to flash it with one of my qchan tracks smile

Excellent work mate smile

Mine has been delivered today smile

Will hopefully have time to try it out tonight.

Cheers smile

Thanks for the reminder Shiru.

I'm in. It's time to hopefully try out one of the new engines smile

How does it cope with 1-bit engines like zbmod and Pytha where some emulators produce strong parasite tones ?

I wonder if a new rombeep player could be tweaked to play on interrupt ?

Btw, an interesting fact I found is that rombeep tunes (compiled on beepola) don't lock up currah speech playback so essentially it can sing over a backing track !

Very interesting topic Shiru.

The best I've seen is a mini game that FrankT wrote which had full speed special FX music playing throughout.

It was a simple game though (a recreation of an 80s handheld 'ambulance' LCD game). Very impressive.

And ofcourse there's introspec's rain demo.

The 1986 game 'thunderbirds' had  multichannel wham the jukebox music playing through too I seem to remember

Nice work utz, another new sound for the beeper. Reminds me of a marimba

An isometric game in the style of Ultimate.

Great ZX beeper version of the 80s classic 'Walk Like An Egyptian' by the Bangles too


Haha, number 1, 1-bit album on bandcamp.

You don't remember the conversation at the IVP? wink

We'd all had a LOT of vodka smile

Hi Garvalf

Great to finally meet you at the IVP.

I'd be very interesting in buying one of your fully assembled boards when they're available smile

Btw, just checked again, you're still number 1 wink

Great tune Garvalf, particularly like the first half. Love the sound from this engine smile

Did you use 1-tracker to create it?

Seems to crash at the end though?

Great idea Shiru.

Are we limited to the original LSengine or are his other ones ok too ?

Including the new digi drums engine extracted a few weeks ago?

Thanks Shiru

Really pleased you've added Octode 2k15 and especially Octode 2k16. That's the next engine I intend to have a try writing for smile smile
