A Computer In My Backpack
(And A Chiptune In My Heart)
This was my contribution to the Oldskool Music compo at Revision 2016. It ended up on a 5th place.
- A Computer In My Backpack (C64 executable file, 4325 bytes)
- A Computer In My Backpack (SID tune, 4990 bytes)
- Linus Akesson - A Computer In My Backpack (MP3, 2.7 MB)
The tune also has a csdb page.

It's a tune, not a demo, so there wouldn't be anything interesting to see. If you run the C64 executable, you get to watch the name of the tune and a visualisation of the CPU time used by the playroutine. But you're not really missing anything if you stick with the MP3.

Could this be implemented on a microcontroller (without SID)?
Would you open the source code?

I got the same playback issue when running it on MAME c64 driver (NTSC).
When using the MAME c64p (PAL) it played nicely.
Any idea what's the issue and if there's anything I can do to play it correctly on my real C64 ?

The tune is also made specifically for the new sid chip (8580). This is also very common in the demoscene, because the filter behaves predictably on the new chip, and that's obviously good for the composer's nerves in a competition. On the original 6581, each individual chip has a very different filter curve.
