Phasor, like Craft, is a demo running on a custom
minimalistic ATmega88-based demo platform. But it generates a composite video
signal (PAL) instead of
a VGA signal. Read more.

It struck me that, at least in theory, organ pipes should generate quite
primitive sound waves. If so, how come a church organ doesn't sound like a
chip tune, which is also built up from simple waveforms? Well, actually
it will, if you remove the church. And if you connect a
Commodore 64 home computer to a loudspeaker in a large hall, it will
sound like an organ. Read more.

Sidreloc is a tool for relocating SID tunes any
number of whole pages, using a novel but remarkably simple algorithm. It can
also relocate all zero-page variables used by the tune. Read more.

In an attempt to squeeze as much emotion as possible
into a tiny chip, I managed to fit Camille Saint-Saëns' The Swan into
480 (out of 1024) bytes of ROM on an ATtiny15. The microcontroller runs at
1.6 MHz and provides 32 bytes of RAM (actually registers). Read more.

The bitbuf is a portable 8-bit minimalistic
live looping machine. Designed as a tool for chip music improvisation and live
performances, it aims to provide a set of simple yet versatile features. It's a
work in progress, but I've made a prototype which is already quite functional
and enjoyable to work with. Read more.

Normally, when you create a chiptune, you start with an
existing chip (such as the SID chip or
the YM2149) and write a tune for it. We decided to start from scratch, and
create a chip and a tune. Read more.
