Why aren’t there more things like these?

discoVia Syphus:

EDIT from comments: I’m making it in Processing, and will eventually be a Windows/Linux/Mac executable AND a web-based Java applet.

I might tidy it up and cobble together a Processing library so that other people can use the IBXM replayer system (by Martin Cameron) in their Processing sketches.

This will be my principle means of releasing mod/xm musicdisks in the future, with the possibility of releasing web-based versions of old Amiga/etc musicdisks. For the native executables, I may see about building in a ‘render to mp3? function, so I can distribute small disks from which people can build large mp3-player-friendly albums.

I’ve been asking for similar DJ type players for other chips for years.. especially for my Hardsid!

  • This is sort of on the down-low, if not semi-secret, since there’s much work to be done…but a few more details:

    Peter’s hit the nail on the head: another primary goal is to run two internal players simultaneously with a crossfader and perhaps two audio devices for cueing. It’ll be the flagship application of the famous underground postzeitgeist Chipdisco, when it rides again.

    But it’s NOT READY YET. NOT. ISN’T. NOPE. Consider this blog entry a retrospectively sanctioned ‘leak’ from Facebook, whereas the actual release will be done with some degree of smoothness and propriety.

  • All very exciting. The ..future.. bright.. shades.. etc.

    Thanks!
