Commodore 64 music - binaural mix

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hello Headfiers!

 

I have created 50min long mix consisting of 14 music tracks of Commodore 64 games.

This is binaural stereo:

Have fun!

Thanks for posting this, pretty awesome.  If you create any more I'd be keen to have a listen.

 

I'm quite into original chip tunes and modern remixes but they're often painful to listen to on headphones.  I think my interest stems back to the days of taping game music from my trusty C=64 and Amiga onto cassette and playing it back on my walkman... I feel so old :(

Wow, I never knew binaural chiptune music existed. is it possible to download this?

Dead99 thanks for appreciation!

 

C=64 chiptunes are normally in mono - making it stereo binaural was my job. I wanted to create something more immersive than plain mono.

In a minute I will post DL links to mp3, flac and wave - they are currently uploading to server.

I… didn't actually expect this to be well executed (no offense — it just sounds like the sort of thing people make a mess of, all the time!)… and was pretty much blown away. I haven't listened on 'phones yet (yeah, I know, I'm on the 'phone forum!), but on my high-end nearfield/desktop system… damn! Musical, immersive (to use your word), and nostalgic, all in one!

 

Speaking of the C64 and music, anyone remember the game 'Ghettoblaster?' What a perfect game — walk around picking up tapes, making people dance, and the music… I'd love to see a modern adaptation of that game…

 

Edit: Any chance to get a cue sheet, or some rough idea of timing to break it into tracks?

thanks for the dowload. I really love this album, I listen to more chiptunes but this one really beats them, especially the binaural effect at 5:25. as you said earlier, it really makes it more immersive

I would prefer flac.
