about

Spectronica is a 1-bit ZX Beeper album written for and recorded from vintage and modern ZX Spectrum hardware.

Harnessing the rich harmonics of 1-bit lo-fi and exploring synth, digital, speech synthesis, triangle waves, phaser and minimalistic square wave beeps.

No dedicated sound chip was used to produce the basic tracks just clever, modern 1-bit sound engines developed by ZX Spectrum coder/musicians Shiru and Irrlicht Project.

Tracks 2,4 & 14 have Vocoder speech overdubbed, performed and recorded by Tufty.
Tracks 1,2,4-8,10-14 recorded from 48K Rubber keyed ZX Spectrum.
Track 3 recorded from a 128K+2A ZX Spectrum.
Track 9 recorded from a ZX Spectrum Vega+
Track 15 recorded from a ZX Spectrum OMNI 128K HQ.

Ich Bin Gern Bin‰r

Mostly written as competition entries in the Beeper category for Battle Of The Bits, DiHalt and the 1-bit Forum music contests.

2015-2018
