Art Rocks Athens: How Art Made Music In Georgia From 1975-85
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/…

Fred’s vocals by DECTalk Express which is also used by Stephen Hawking. Cindy and Kate’s vocals utilized two HP Scanjet 3C flatbed scanners. The robot guitar, keyboard, snare and bass drum all are controlled with a couple of PIC16F84A microcontrollers.

special thanks goes out to:

Chris Rasmussen who offered to fly me and my robot band down to Athens, Georgia for the Art Rocks Athens Festival. Sadly due to my work schedule I could not make it. What he didn’t know I was already secretly working on my next video so I offered to promote this great venue.

Pastor Snoopi Botten has provided great on-line material with respect to programming the DECTalk speech synthesizer.http://theflameofhope.co/DECTALK.html

Special thanks goes out to Greg Howley and without his help this project would of never seen the light of day.

SUPER PSG VST IS OUT NOW! Full SPECS in the free user manual (on the website).
SPSG is not simply an ultra accurate SN76489 emulator, it adds many extended features to squeeze to most of the sound chip and a huge user friendly GUI! It is a fantastic synth suitable for chip music and SEGA nostalgic pleasure and also a powerful 8-bit tool for modern music production.

“It is a fantastic synth suitable for chip music and SEGA nostalgic pleasure and also a powerful 8-bit tool for modern music production. The SN76489 PSG was the natural buddy of YM2612 FM chip on the Sega Megadrive console but it was the principal and only sound chip of the legendary Sega Master System. I grew up playing some great games on the Master System too. So, I thought it also deserves the same kind of attention and accuracy I did with the FMDrive VSTi. You may think, the SN76489 chip is basically square waves & noise… but there is more…clever programming tricks can unlock some awesome potential!”

Commodore 64 – Monkey Island – Kompositkrut (remeade, No Emulation)

October 3, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Kompositkrut rocks with a C64, details below:

Yo I remade the Monkey Island after a request. And I made a little demo or something to watch wile listening.

The song is composed in the native c64 tracker SID Wizzard 1.4 (by Hermit)
http://csdb.dk/release/?id=115599

The visuals are coded by me and I used Kick Assembler (by Camelot), Notepad++ and Charpad (by subchrist) for the gfx. The program visualisates the 3 voice on the SID
http://csdb.dk/release/?id=89532
http://csdb.dk/release/?id=101863

Yea and I crunched my program with BongoCruncher by Samar Productions
http://csdb.dk/release/?id=115758

Sorry for the poor video quality I recorded it via my Video capturing device, I will make my self a s-video cable. That might give me some higher video quality.

I will uppload the SID and the prg to CSDB after I done some adjustments :)

PIXEL HEAVEN 2013 – Retro entertaiment days

May 21, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

No computers were harmed during making this video ;).

Making of vimeo.com/65763564

Short made for Retro Entertainment Days 15-16/06/2013 / CDQ / Warszawa (PL) – pixelheaven.pl.
Created by me :)hlawka.com
Music – thevirusempire.com

Creating the film wasn’t an easy task. Preparations took well over 2 months of my free time. It is surprising, but no work was done using CGI, only good oldschool stopmotion animation and motion control slider provided by Ditogear.

Thx to: Lesny, Gajorro, Gumis, Fasola, Squoka, Radek, Ola – Janusz, Robert/ditogear, Robert/pixelheaven, Dzemik, Agata, Camel, Jake/the Virus Empire
