Topic: 1-Bit Forum Music Compo 2015
Here we go, the 1-Bit Forum Music Competition 2015 is open for submissions now! There are five categories, of course you're welcome to submit works to each of them.
Any editor/routine is allowed, you can even write a new one if you like.
Works must be unreleased, and may not be published before the end of the compo.
Original works only, covers are not allowed.
Submissions must be anonymous (ie. no author names in source, binary, or mp3 tags).
Submit works in emulator format (.tap, .sna, .xex, etc.), and also provide mp3 renders for all your works.
For each entry, provide a seperate ID/readme file with info on author, title, tools used, platform, and how to run your entry on emulator/hardware.
Categories that receive less than 3 entries may be dropped or merged into the Wild category.
By submitting, you agree that your works will be made available for free download after the contest.
Only registered members of the 1-Bit Forum may vote.
UPDATE: NEW DEADLINE: Sept. 13th, 2015
Send your submissions to 1bitcompo AT randomflux DOT info.
Please don't send mp3 renders directly, but upload them to a file hoster instead and provide a link in your submission email.
Write music for ZX Spectrum beeper and/or Atari 8bit GTIA. Maximum 2 submissions per author.
Write music for any 1-bit platform of your choice, including but not limited to PC Speaker, Apple hooter, ZX81, calculators, Apogee, Channel F.
Maximum 1 submission per platform per author.
The category for "fake" 1-bit, made with VSTis, DSSIs, samples, etc. Anything goes as long as it sounds 1-bit. Max. 1 work per author.
Write a 1-bit tune that fits into one kilobyte. Works on any platform are accepted, maximum 2 submissions per author.
Maximum uncompressed binary size (ie. size of the player code + song data) = 1024 byte. Headers/loaders etc. don't count towards the file size.
Please submit an additional .bin file along with the usual tap/sna/xex.
Write a new 1-bit routine for a platform of your choice. You can submit as many entries as you want to this category. Submissions don't need to be anonymous, in case you're worried someone's going to steal the code.
Submission format is plaintext .asm. Provide a short track demonstrating the capabilities of your routine (binary/emulator format + mp3 render). In the info file, state the specifications of your routine. Providing an editor/converter is not required, however it may positively influence your score if you do.
