Amiga DJ software are like CDJs for Chiptune

It may not have the feel or polish of a new pair of Pioneers, but this old Amiga computer can still knock out some boss beats. Check out this demo video, and for more info check out this article from Create Digital Music.

cTrix’s gAtari – chipmusic project at blip 2011

Artist at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/cTrix/118258328189500

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 :-)
