A new piece of (1bit) music for the 48K speccy.

Post by uglifruit »

A fairly urgent sounding piece of music, that I've made today whilst I should have been doing other ZX Spectrum music related things*. It's always fun to see what the 48K Spectrum can do, and what I can fool my ears in to thinking I'm hearing. It's not the most brilliant piece ever written, but has some nice arpeggios, bent notes and detuned-to-make-phat-er sounds. Enjoy.

Incidentally, I call it 'Super Turbo Outrider Deluxe' Theme, after a (fictitious) 1980s arcade game that featured in a musical I wrote.

Listen here (there's not much to watch):

Brilliant! Love those arpeggios, and the sliding bass!

...Sounds pretty cool... :)

In my head I could see it suiting a mystery/horror themed arcade-adventure, rather than a racing game (not that it matters), though that's probably just me...
