Haxogreen 2018: Atari ST Chiptunes by Gunstick

July 30, 2018 by muguk

At HaxoGreen 2018 in Luxembourg, Gunstick/ULM released an updated version of his talk on all things chip-sound.

HaxoGreen is an international, 4-day open-air event in Luxembourg for people interested in technology or art. It provides a small but relaxed atmosphere for free exchange of technical, social, and political ideas.

At this event, Gunstick/ULM gave an updated version of his guide to the evolution of soundchip music on the Atari ST. It's a blow-by-blow walkthough of all things YM-2149: from the early days through to the modern era of music-making on our machines.

Watch it on YouTube.

Random review

RTG is mostly a collection of racing games, and racing games can be good fun. I can remember seeing RTG at an arcade back in 1990. I never played it there, but it did indeed catch my eye from a distance - it was Cleethorphes promenade one cloudy August morning - not a million miles from where the steem authors are now.

Did you know?

Rumours say the operating system of the ST, called TOS, is short for "Tramiel Operating System".
