Quick audio decode demonstration using realtime sequence based decompression and streaming. Nearly 3 minutes of Audio at high quality. Specifically made for the Syntax 2012 Demo party. If running on emulator, make sure you use minimum WinVice version 2.3 (Will also work on Micro64 or Hoxs64) If transferring to real c64, make sure you transfer all 40 tracks.

It was worth the wait, alhorithm. Great prod!

Youtube link here. Captured from Emulator. Sounds better on a Real C64.

Make me remember that 1980s intro r!ff by The Flirts. Dithering, dithering?!

It was merely a last second of the moment release and should not have really been put in the demo compo. There is not much activity on the screen just a scroll text, but supposed to be merely a tech demo to demonstrate the realtime sample decoding streaming and sequencing on stock hardware.

The woman on the demo is sylvia saint and the original music by joy lab. A track called "passion"

Basic info on the tech as follows...

Realtime vector quantizer decoder via nmi.
Demand based streaming of next sample loops.

All running on 1mhz c64 with no expansion and one side of floppy drive.

the original music is a cover of this classic ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BP7Gc4CTS4
Ahhh. Good find there. Although i prefer the remake of it more

a very crafty bit of a c64 audio hack; sounded great at the party place
