another commodore 64 hardware created song - snowflakes in summer - enjoy!

so silly me made the previous version with just speakers and one of the settings was a tad off.. by like.. a hair.. which causes the entire thing to slide pan to the left.. which was a rather interesting effect.. but my mind was like mentally trying to push it to the right.. so I went in and rehauled the stereo and now I think it's much better.. be warned though it's a rather hefty block of stereo sound! As a result it will probably tire your ears out listening to it for a prolongued period of time with headphones, as commodore 64 songs in their true sound aren't really meant to be listened to with headphones, but through the soundboard or actual speakers.

I tried converting this to 432 hz but since this is hardware the tuning might actually be correct originally.. so I decided not to mess with it.

Enjoy!

8-bit goodness for sure! Really like all the 8-bit sounds going on here right off the bat! The melodies are rather soothing even tho the sounds aren't exactly lol. it's rather surprising that you were able to make this on the commodore tho, or maybe that's just because i've never exactly heared one played before.

As an edm fan I felt the lack of drums slightly off putting but I can look past it, given your hardware limitations. your melodics are still spot on tho! Keep it up and release some more :D plz

Chronamut responds:

personally I don't think drums would have added much to this - I like the snowy feeling it has - not every song needs drums :)

this was actually done using a commodore 64 sid hardware synth - using the same chip as the commodore. There is slight percussion in the bg of this song, but it is very very much slowed down, and in the style of commodore percussion, which tends to be weird sounds hehe.. :P

thanks for the review! If I ever get a new pc I will work on making more hehe..

Turns on my imagination.

Digged it, downloading.

God damn, this is so great! I love the Commodore 64 synth. Great tune made with it, too, as expected. As a gabber and speedcore fan I appreciate the "grit" very much as well. :)

Chronamut responds:

awesome!

thanks for the review!
