I was thinking that maybe some of the Atari chip musicians here on AA might want to team up and create a POKEY album in tribute to the late, great Analmux. It could be cover music, vgm, or original, with the common theme being inspiration from Analmux's work. When it's finished, perhaps it could be hosted on Bandcamp, with all proceeds going to cancer research, or something... just an idea.

Thoughts?

You just made me well up with emotion, my eyes are full, and yet my heart feels somewhat lighter!

.......

I think there are at least 7 somewhat active members making some really good sounds right now. (You know who you are). I bet you could turn out quite the album.. 7 songs with 3 bonus tracks, ending powerful and building majestically in the last track...

I think it's a great idea. I had actually been thinking before that it would be a cool thing to do, especially after hearing PG's Sonic rendition and seeing all the NES tunes that were being done by yourself and dippy. It would also be good to clue his family into anything that gets done.

 

I guess my first thought is that Analmux really liked SMB3 (and most likely the other SMB games too) and Sonic; so I'd focus on those two and maybe some of the 70's prog rock he was interested in (King Crimson, etc.).

YES + Also will share the double GTIA upgrade plans Analmux sent me a decade ago.

I'd almost forgotten about that. Cool idea, although I guess he wasn't the originator or it.

Pretty sure this was a Bob Wooley invention.

That's what I had in mind too. I thought it was only ever prototyped, though. Seems I recall there were some difficulties.

 

These days, with whats being done to emulate GTIA, I'd think dual GTIA's might be one of the next logical steps -- if there aren't to many roadblocks.

Actually, here's the thread/poll that Analmux started: Better graphics - Hardware upgrade development

 

And in the same thread, here's where Bob chimes in (6 years later, that is) to show what he's already developed: Dual ANTIC/GTIA Hack

Some of the guys on the AtariChiptunes discord are also interested.  I was thinking I could probably do SMB3 Ending Theme and maybe try to make something using his Instrumentarium instrumentation too.  I think I've got the custom version of RMT used for that somewhere around here...
