Commodore Amiga Chiptunes + Bonus
A collection of bouncy short but sweet chip-tunes composed on and recorded from on the Commodore Amiga 1200. AHX format. Original unofficial release 2006.
Remastered with fully re-recorded material directly from a real Commodore Amiga, composed in AHX Tracker.
Audio post production and file encoding done on a Raspberry Pi4.
Many of these tunes exploit bugs (out of bounds parameters) to cause some glitch effects. Naturally, emulators/PC-playback routines didn’t anticipate this and summarily crashed to pieces when these chip-tunes were first released.
An updated version of AHX for high-end Amigas, supporting up to 16 channels of AHX synthesis- Hivelytracker. Compatible with AHX and has its own format (HVL) for advanced synthesis such as ring-modulation.
