I challenged myself to write a track with similar limitations as on an Amiga 500.

  • 4 mono channels
  • 8bit sample depth
  • ~20 kHz sample rate

Sample memory used: ~350 kB (could be optimized to 200..250k)

To make this sound a bit more pleasant and approximate my mid nineties Amiga-based sound setup, the usually hard-panned L/R/R/L channels were joint 50%, a tiny bit of reverb was added (to approximate my old SX-700 reverb), and the stereo was run through Satin (to approximate the cassette tape deck I used for recording back in the days).

    • 125 bpm
    • Key: Bbm
