gAtari – Atari 2600 chipmusic project by cTrix

November 19, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Easy to get somewhat nostalgic watching this Atari project :-)

“The “gAtari” was my excuse to do something a little silly after I discovered that the Atari 2600 was more limiting than I realized! (31 pitches, minimal waveforms and only 2 channels!) I needed an EQ which could take a high voltage and drop it down to line level (Boss bass EQ) plus a way to hold loops between tracks and parts (Boss delay). So rather than have it “DJ” style config, I thought I make something a little more creative. It uses my atari-x-mod converter software which compiles binary files for Atari. You can find a little video about it here: http://vimeo.com/23589320

Big ups to Celsius / Trash80 / nf / Lazerbeat for the audio recording. Massive thankyou to sebastienvd81 & JDD3J for shooting additional video footage. Thanks to Wing / Celsius / Abrasive for their assistance and filming. Mega-thanks to Paul Slocum for the maco asm code for 2600 that I based my software around interfacing with :-)

Come to Blip Festival Melbourne 2012!

ps. You can download a similar set to the one I played here at at: http://www.freemusicarchive.org/music/cTrix/Blip_Festival_2011-cTrix/cTrix_-_…
