March 06: It’s free electronic music month at Synthtopia. All month, we’re going to help you kick the RIAA habit by highlighting great electronic music that’s available for free on the Internet.
Today, we’ve got the motherload of chiptunes, the SID 6581/8580 Recordings Archive. The site has a name that only an electronic music geek would love, but the name captures the spirit of the site and what it does, archive a ton of 8-bit music from classic gaming systems.
You can preview the 8-bit goodness that the Archive offers below, with Kai Walter’s Mathematica.
