My son does 8-bit music

My 12-year-old son has an own YT account now. Here is his jazzy debut song, programmed by himself with his 5$ micro controller:

By the way: he programmed all the stuff by himself. The program that he wrote is not yet finished. He wants to name it NoobTracker in reference to the Amiga ProTracker, hence his YouTube name. ;)

I dig it. Makes me want to relive my youth and play some C64 games

That's cool to hear, dasbeef. My son loves the SID chip of the C64 and wants to make his program sound very much like this old system. :D

Here is another composition that's a few weeks older. His own written program is becoming better and better.

New track with just two oscillators. My son wanted to do a song with the two waveforms that are merged in his logo. :geek:

That brings me back to the 90's when we did similar things with the likes of Impulse tracker. 8-)
