Spellbound

Spellbound, composed by Rob Hubbard in 1986, performed on the Chipophone.

First, the loop is recorded. It consists of a rhythmic bass figure and a snare drum. Then, the loop is transposed down a couple of octaves, and the pedals are set up to control its pitch. The lower manual controls an arpeggiated narrow pulse wave. The upper manual controls an arpeggiated square wave, at one point replaced with a triangle wave. At the end, a switch is pressed which initiates the fadeout.

I really like this form of music, not just because it brings back awesome memories, but because it's awesome in its own right. Please keep making more tunes (videogame, and original if you feel like it) and posting them on youtube so I can listen and be brought back to the good ol days :)

Amazing. I saw Pex "Mahoney" Tufvesson release a BIT Live demo in Brighton a few years ago and the theme tune was Spellbound. Love the tune, amazing to see you play that on the Chipophone!

Sjukt bra, mycket vackert. En tanke vore nog att kontakta LinCon eller GothCon. De kan nog vara intresserade av att boka dig :)

Haha, detta måste vara det mest nördiga bygget jag sett, i positiv bemärkelse. =)

Instrumentet och dess skapare måste genast ut på sverigeturne!!!

Seconded. Robocop 3 is completely awesome. Way better than boring non-arpeggiated NES tunes. :)
