The player is included, of course. In this case, it's the Laxity NewPlayer v21, which takes approximately 1900 bytes.

Turn on the scopes to see how it controls the 3 synth voices to generate the entire song, and check the Visuals subtabs to see it run.

When you'll realize that all .sid tunes are actually C64 programs running in the vblank interrupt, it will blow your mind.

The original SID was only 4154 bytes for 1m40s of great 6581 synth sound.

There's also an extended version: 3m43s of music in 5311 bytes.

I love Mordi's remixes of SIDs, mods and music.

Here's one of his top covers, Resolution. I particularly like the transition between the bridge back to the main theme at 1:38:

I tried building the emulator VICE from sources, and it wasn't too hard (the hardest part was remembering how to use Subversion, lol).

In spite of being an ancient codebase, it's still actively developed, with several new features and fixes for the upcoming 3.6 release:

I'm listening to Equinoxe, Jean-Michel Jarre's 1978 masterpiece.

As always, Equinoxe Part 5 brings back memories of this game:

Loco's gameplay wasn't remarkable, but associating Equinoxe Part 5's beat with a running steam locomotive was a stroke of genius.

Anyone knows an offline image converter? It's for... work.

The image converter no longer works for me:

Perhaps it's because now browsers require https to upload files? Tested on both Firefox and Chrome...

auto-generated a playlist of the top-50 tracks I played in 2020. Unsurprisingly, it's 100% , and stuff!

Chilling out after work with the latest 8-Bit Show And Tell episode, on 6502 assembly :commodore:

Robin's calm exposition and one-handed typing are so... soothing. The nerd equivalent of a knitting show ๐Ÿ˜Œ
