Hi,

 

the demo group Flush did the "impossible" thing and released a 32k music cartridge featuring 32 tracks (about an hour of music!) for the Atari 2600:

(Joystich left/right changes the track, up/down the presentation)

 

Who would have thought someone would actually do something like this for the TIA?!? <3

What about this do you consider "impossible"?

Obviously it's not impossible in the literal sense. :) What I meant was that considering the limitations and the sound quality of the TIA, most people would consider it "imposible" to make a music collection in the sense that it woulnd't be worth listening to anyway.

 

I should have used a different word; unlikeley perhaps? Anyway, I hope you get what I mean. :)

Yes. Glafouk (the musician) really likes it and by now has made over 40 tracks with it.  :-o

Very impressive, iv had it going for about 30min now and really enjoying the music. Pure beeps and tones most likely the rawest form of chip music going around. Looking forward to vol2 ;)
