Topic: Commodore PET music

Have you guys seen this?

Brilliant version for the PET

Don't know what engine/software was used to create it.

Be great to hear it playing on a real PET

Re: Commodore PET music

Furnace tracker it is. It supports a gazillion of platforms. Not sure how did they get the low notes, tho, can't find a low level export there. Perhaps it is in-tracker only at the moment.

website - 1bit music - other music - youtube - bandcamp - patreon - twitter (latest news there)

Re: Commodore PET music

Never mind the low notes, seems there's variable duty as well. I suppose it's not interrupt-driven, then? Anyway, I have my doubts about this. I mean for PET emulator support can't really be trusted. If they can get it to work on hw then that's awesome, though.

Re: Commodore PET music

Hmmm, yeah, I thought it was maybe a bit too good to be true smile

Seem to be a few 'Spectrum' tunes made with Furnace on YT too. Will be good if they do manage to export files that can be played on real hw to authenticate the tunes.

Coincidentally updated on 2/Oct as well.

Download :

Even works on XP! Some 240 included music demos for differing platforms.
Can change to lots of different chipsets. Speccy included.  Doom level 1 (c64) demo still sounds half ok in ZX quadtone engine.
Appears to only export to WAV and pattern text output at this stage; unless I am missing something.
Haven't yet read the huge manual yet.

Re: Commodore PET music

I thought that hardware support was supposed to be added/extended in 0.6, but it seems indeed that hasn't happened yet. I trust they'll get around to it at some point, though.
