Have just seen this on the Acorn Computer and BBC Micro FB page:

The Register promoting a music composition competition at the TNMOC:

Sending your conversions to them should definitely inform them that the Beeb is better than just "bleeps, whistles, and flatulent squawks" :D


The actual TNMOC competition page is here:

Thanks. Yes, I had seen it. Two issues for me:

“compose a piece of music for a fictional computer game using the system inspired by the BBC Micro - the Raspberry Pi.

…and

“Your music must be no longer than 30 seconds and be supplied in .mp3 format.”

I quickly lost interest after reading that unfortunately. :(

It’s coming soon - both the C64 SID and ZX Spectrum AY versions. I had to implement a new SID emulation engine to even get any register values from the out_run.sid at HVSC.

I’ll post the music disk 11 up at https://negativecharge.github.io/ over the next few days. In the meantime you can hear it here: https://youtu.be/xNcIA2NbEMk

There are many other music discs at my website above. I haven’t posted about them here as either traffic is very light, or there didn’t seem to be a lot of interest. I post these over on Twitter if you’re interested.

That's an awesome achievement. The Outrun and the whole project. Always wondered how it would sound on the Beeb. Very interested.

Thanks. I’m still aiming for a more SID-like sound, but that will require some further experimentation with duty cycles.

I’ve put the latest music disc up here: https://negativecharge.github.io/post-23/

I've just found this thread - great work! It's very odd hearing classics from my 16 bit days on a BBC though :D

I've never played Outrun on the C64 and it's been decades since I played it in the arcades, but listening to this made me grin like a loon. I'm not quite sure why, but thanks - it's really cool!
