||I look back to the mid 1980's to the land of
the sawtooth waveform and to one of the greatest Commodore 64
musicians of all time. Introducing Rob Hubbard, the musician and
programmer who pushed the boundries of the 6581 Sid microprocessor
to it's limits to produce some great music.
||In the late 80's whereas Rob Hubbard was
banging out some great tunes on the Commodore 64, David Whittaker
was composing music for the Sinclair Spectrum and Atari ST via the
AY38910 / AY38912 sound microprocessor. Here is a look back in time
at David Whittaker, Tatung Einstein computers and his inspirations
for his music.
||I look back to the late 1980's to the
legendary Tim Follin. Tim composed many pieces of music for the
Sinclair Spectrum in which he squeezed multi channel sound out the
machines one channel speaker. A feat which was thought impossible.
I revisit one of Tim's machine code routines from a 1987 issue of
Your Sinclair Magazine.
||A look back in time to the late 1980's, and
to Ben Daglish, Gremlin software's in-house musician. Ben composed
music for many computer games of that era for the Commodore 64,
Atari ST and Spectrum 128k computers.
