awesome "sample" of forthcoming demo by Desire, so thumbs up! but those random sounds... sorry, music is just horrible in my opinion, no offence Heaven.

Basic effect on PC/Amiga my friend... ;) do it on 6502...
Nice effect but unfortunately, the music really does not fit. May finally the demo does not booted again 15 minutes (similar to C64 demos) ;)

You know you have fans when you can do not one but TWO previews of an upcoming demo.

Full Arsantica 3 when (I'm waiting)?

Arsantica 8 in 2022?

@superplek Try this "basic effect" on a C64 ;)

Well. music is a special thing on the Atari. POKEY... the music ... chip had been created in the mid 1970s, and it seems, the creator didn't have a clue about music. But, it's not all hopeless ;) , as POKEY offers more than intended by the creator. Sadly, you'd need a special software to get the max out of POKEY.
To write it in other words: POKEY usage humbles approx. 30 years behind graphics of the demo.

Another Arsantica...
With my respect - no... I have a spaghetti feeling.

Agree, but you are kinda harsh, and you know it.

You are a 6502 coder, ain't you. Do what Plek is doing.

We are on atari, why you are talking about C64?
Well, Pokey sucks. It's kinda like a broken tubular bell. That's a result when a non-musician smart engineer is doing a job...
And hey! Ask me about almost any Pokey A8 tune till 1991.

Final words: best wishes and good luck dudes!

What should Heaven do like plek is doing ? Using a faster computer? Well, It's not really according to the point ;)

And, well , the last word about POKEY isn't spoken ;)

re: name

well... if I would have renamed the intro to "Voxaloid" or something similar... it would be wider accepted? ;)

movies, games, music tent to have teasers... :)

re: music

I have choosen one of Miker's old unreleased MPT tracks because it sounded "unusual" somehow to me... I like it and that's why it was choosen as "alternativlos" ;)

re: c64

first tests showed that c64 is little bit fighting to get the same impression and speed...

re: Plek

Yeah, we have internal Desire "battle" regarding that fx :D.... Plek & I. I appreciate his work and experience though but 6502 is not the fastest beast in calculating stuff esp. in 64k ram limit (or actually on Atari you have max. 56k).

re: technical informations:

it renders 64x64 voxels in low DMA mode. I am using narrow screen mode and using 4:3 aspect ratio, so it is not a "90s" 4x4 mode.

re: Arsantica 3 Demo

stay tuned... might arrise 2016...
re: technical

screen res is 64x204 as far as I remember
