Since my recent wtfx 1-bit player was so well received, here's another one - and it's twice as cool because it has twice as many channels :D Screenshot says it all - 4 channel wavetable synthesis with fixed-lenght looped samples, a total of 17 volume levels mixed at ~23KHz. No tick-based fx this time, instead you'll get some massive heavy metal overdrive.

This time, there's an XM converter included in the package, using a specially crafted template. Which means that no, you can't just convert random XMs with this, but at least there's a relatively convenient way for making music with this thing.

The routine is written for NMOS machines (ie. original Sinclair Spectrum models). I've included a CMOS version as well (for clones using a CMOS Z80, obviously), but haven't had the chance to test it.

Anyway, here's a recording from my 48K machine, sounds a bit more gritty than on emulators.

That's amazing! Has this ever been done on the ZX before?

Very nice and innovative. Something similar has been done before by Tim follin in some of the early games https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vy0umg4ZuUY

The fluidcore one is obviously far more impressive.
