kickass coding... but I'm bit disappointed in the end as it was actually loading something :)

thank you Ate Bit to return me 18 years back. with these emulators i forgot what is this: to load full file from tape and carefully look into the screen listening loading sounds with sweet waiting of something unknown.

i'm impressed. and how did you managed to do such innovative things everytime? it's a mystery :) please don't stop demomaking on Spectrum, i hope to compete with you again.

Tnx! Great concept, idea and realization.

But actually we need this 20 years ago - in this case world can be different now.

Good stuff!

It was cool just to hear proper loading noises for the first time in 20 odd years. Music wasn't quite what I was expecting.. but then I realised, it's pure loading music material :D Effects were pretty decent, but then the streaming thing is the main 'effect' and I reckon that comes high on the awesome scale.

In default mode, Spectaculator is speeding through the loading parts in a second or so. ;)

Nice! The streamed picture part reminded me a bit of Deep Throat (the C64 Durex production)

Contains tape.
I liked the presentation. I trust the Speccy guys that it's technically good as well :).

Having never had a Spectrum, I don't feel compelled to thumb this up on platform alone. Having said this, it was an amusing little demo, and it actually loaded something at the end, which is a Bonus.

Thus, this demo Earns its thumb! This prod Rulez!

It was impressive when loaders were changing loading-bars colours while loading, Exolon loader with counter looked like magic, and if I've seen THIS in 80s, I wouldn't believe. Mindblowing.

This is, without a doubt, one of the most technically challenging things you can do with your spectrum. Very nostalgic, very cool and very inspiring.

I only just came across this. Literally and figuratively! :P

Tape demo streaming on the Speccy... with MUSIC?! Mighty impressive.

Seriously, tape streaming demos should be a competition standard at parties today. :)

Thumbz upz.
