This is demo music created with the Arcano MIDI NES Chiptune Synthesizer. The device is an ATmega328-microcontroller-based MIDI synth designed to emulate the classic chiptune sound of the Nintendo Entertainment System’s APU (audio processing unit.) If you are interested in the synth, please refer to the Kickstarter campaign page. The Kickstarter campaign rewards include both a fully assembled and tested version and a kit version for those who prefer to build it themselves. I created the music track myself, and I am not very musically talented. I’m interested to hear the music that more talented musicians will create with this synth, which is why I’m sharing the device through Kickstarter.

New MIDIo firmware from VBLANK!
Prototype test video of my new MIDIo Visual board firmware: “VidByter”
This is a new swappable firmware for my DIY MIDIo kit that works with Mac/Win/Linux to capture live video and send it over a USB/Serial cable where it is pushed directly onto the video ram space of a circa 1977 Chip8 RCA “Pixie Video” emulator. The Pixie hardware was found on the COSMAC VIP and several RCA based video “PONG” consoles such as the RCA STUDIO II.
Fresh new material from well known Amiga posses Ephidrena and Darklite!
Running on AGA Amigas (not sure which spec, I haven’t tried this in my 030 yet) this demo got the first position at the oldschool competition in Solskogen 2010 party in Norway.
The demo mixes a cool video capture technique with really nice flat-surface 3D graphics and an acid soundtrack by Response. The code was by well known scener LOADERROR.
It’s impossible to explore 8-bit music videos without at least dabbling in the world of chiptunes — music crafted in the style of, and often with the same computer hardware of, old-school games. Chiptune songstress Leeni’s clip for “Underworld” plays like a videogame stage show. Stick around for the eye-popping pixel light show towards the end.
