Soundchip Salad is a part of the Ubiktune catalogue: ubiktune.com/releases/kulor-soundchip-salad/
Soundchip Salad is the culmination of half a decade of research and development. It's the first in a series which showcases every soundchip in its purest and most distilled form. This album marks the beginning of my journey into hardware hacking old keyboards and programming for retro consoles. Every track is playable on actual hardware, with minimal post-processing and no external effects.
Tools used: Famitracker for NES and expansions, GoatTracker and sngtweak.prg for C64, FM-Kingtracker for OPL3, MTV Music Generator for PS1, Audacity for Casio and microKORG rendering, Anvil Studio and Sony Acid Pro 7.0 for Casio and microKORG sequencing and track layering. Videos documenting the creation process for some of the more obscure platforms are coming soon!
Shoutout to: Maxo, kfaraday, Jusu Tengu and Fearofdark for the awesome remixes. Kyra for the fantastic visual design work. MmcM for the wonderful masters. C-jeff for Ubiktune. Virt for inspiring me all those years ago at GDC. Shnabubula for the constant source of inspiration, the years of webhosting, and of course the name of the album. Kattywampus for the voice work, and in addition to noti, Piegar and Tim, for FYGAR which has been instrumental in keeping me active in music. And of course, Ari for standing by me through it all.
