Can't wait for an album from you where you return to your roots and do some proper chip stuff.

The music you did for Razors Pirates of the 777 Seas was frankly a masterclass.

Would love an album of music of that type, its where you true musical genius lies.

Too bad that the muzak is too short but very nice. Kamel

Fast work, I still have a browser tab open from when 4mat posted about the "origins" album release.

I love this, the sounds reach right into my reptile brain and make me feel like I'm 14 again, only all 21st centuried up in production quality. I am shamefully unaware of the heritage, where can I hear 4mats original amiga stuff please?

This was the one that really started it all..

[ Show youtube player ]

There are more on YouTube if you don't have a means of playing MODs (Deliplayer for Windows/UADE etc.)

Matt "invented" the method of using Noisetracker to play short tuned loops of fuzz and noise (just a few bytes long) to render a sort of pseudo "chip tune" alike sound - sort of a cross between an AY/YM chip and SID (depending on how much of an arduous amount of time you wanted to spend editing patterns and subtle loop-pointers).

None of them are strictly chip tunes as they're all technically sample-driven.

Memory is hazy but I think his work appeared before the Amiga had SIDMon, Future Composer and MED's synth sound editor, but after Brian Postma's Sound Editor and the original Bugmon (both early 1989).

* * *

Incidentally, when 4mat's first "chip" efforts were released and spread, they appeared everywhere in intros / disk mag soundtracks / demos, etc. Opinion was divided along the lines that (1) they were small and tuneful and could even compress into a bootblock intro, but (2) they sounded like a hive of angry bees causing a nearby small dog (perhaps a daschund) to fart in fear and sneeze periodically. Though perhaps it was only I who held that view.

And still do.

the next one might be more your kind of thing, very '90s demoscene with a modern twist:

I used Starworx (not the 91' reworking) for my last crack for Winter Camp, would love a new reimagining of that....... and the Lemmings Cracktro, and, and.... i'll leave that to Mat!
