#BeepolaFriday

Post by chrrris » Fri Apr 20, 2018 8:21 pm

I thought I'd get gently back into a bit of Speccy stuff by doing a #BeepolaFriday thingy on my twitter a/c. The idea is that I'll do a Speccy beeper cover version every Friday and publish it - regardless of whether it's finished or not. First one is a cover of MGMT's "Kids".

Dunno if this is of interest to anyone or not - might well be a complete flop. I guess we'll see how it goes. 😉


If any other Speccy musos fancy joining in, please do. Not limited to beepola, of course - other editors are available!

Very, very cool. I reckon it's a homage to Xecutor in the first place.

Cheers gents. Yes, I can hear the similarity to Xecutor, R-Tape. And that came first -- maybe MGMT ripped it off :)

Nice work! :) So will AY music be allowed in future? And is this limited to only covers?

Good work! I usually favour AY music over the beeper (don't let Mr. BEEP read this), but this was pleasant to the ears.

My memory isn't what it used to be. My 4116 chips made me think of Terra Cresta, not Xecutor when the beat started.

I'm really rubbish at doing AY music -- tried several times with decidedly sub-par results -- so I will be sticking to doing beeper tunes, but if anyone else wants to join in with Friday AY tunes, or beeper tunes made with other editors then that'd be great. If so, perhaps we need to come up with a broader hashtag. #BeepolaFriday may have been a bit limiting :)

Sounds good! :) If there is any interest in AY music, there's been a recent update to Vortex Tracker that makes it a lot more user-friendly than it used to be. In particular, it now has a sample browser so you no longer have to make all the sounds from scratch!
