New ZX Spectrum engine - Stocker

19 August 2010 at 7:04 pm, posted by
New 1-bit music is developed for ZX Spectrum. The features are fairly common - two tone channels with user-defined 'volume' envelopes, four synthesized drums, slides up and down, detune control. It has a little different sound comparing to other PWM engines, and also has reduced cross-detune effect, when note on a channel detunes note on another. There is no editor for the engine, however you can use Vortex Tracker II to prepare the music and then automatically get a TAP file with your music. Check this out, readme.txt for all the details: Stocker
