  1. Just to reiterate my comment on that video, I'm surprised that for the past 41 years this machine was available to the public, only recently have we discovered techniques on how to get "controlled" pwm with the filter, along with trumpet-like sounds, etc. It makes me wonder if anyone actually came up with techniques like this before, or if all of this is genuinely a relatively new thing.
  2. There's also the possibility of resorting to a quick oscillation between two pitches to in essence "dither" a pitch between the two pitches. I have yet to hear how they would sound with RMT at a 50hz refresh rate rather than 100hz. It's a quick and dirty fix, but that's what I would resort to if I can't seem to find any pitches close enough to a certain note and don't want it detuned.
  3. Man, I love this cover! I too would like to experiment with modifying the frequency tables as well. Are there any resources you can point to so I can read up on how to change them?
  4. Yeah. I was asking for the .rmt to be able to add portamento, among other things such as changing the octaves of some instruments, vibrato, etc.. If someone's already transcribed it to RMT, it would be much easier for everyone to make their own modifications of the transcription to experiment with it themselves rather than making a transcription from scratch again, right?
  5. I love this! Do you think you could send the .rmt to see if I can maybe try to add in manual portamento by using FSHIFT among other things? I'd love to experiment with this.
  6. Ah...now I get it. I didn't get what you meant earlier. I like how you somewhat combined both the spectrum and c64 version into one instrument.
  7. Sure thing! Might as well share the whole thing at this point lol Bionic_Stage_1.rmt
  8. Ah. I guess I can make a separate version more like the ZX version in that part.
  9. This will probably be the last version. Listed are the changes made in version 4: Used distortion C instead of distortion E for the alternate "burping" instrument. Added vibrato to the lead instrument in the part from 0:42 to 0:57 and fake portamento to the bass in the part from 0:26 to 0:42 (using real portamento with distortion C just sounds like noise).
  10. Also, I finally got around fixing those two instruments. Third time's a charm!
  11. If you try to listen to my cover of Bionic Commmando in any of the revisions I've posted earlier, you can hear the synth dropping by an octave when the two channels sync for a brief moment (1:42 is a good example). The song channels were rendered with multidumper, which probably uses asap for pokey emulation. For examples of it not happening, I can point to any of your covers you've recorded in Altirra.
  12. Speaking of doubling the frequency, when both the channels' frequencies sync up for a brief moment, in some sap players such as asap, it lowers the note by an octave, and in others like rmt and altirra, that doesn't happen. Does real hardware sound more like asap or altirra when it comes to this filter behavior?
  13. Why is it called a "filter" anyways? It seems to behave like ring modulation more than a "crude high pass filter".
  14. It would be nice to be able to use 16-bit accuracy on distortions other than the bass distortion.
  15. Hm. That sounds like a good idea. I'll try it out later. Thanks!
