The Digi we were looking for...

A kind reader sent us yesterday one of the digitunes we were looking for ages ( see digitunes for your brain... ) It was probably 15 years ago the last time I heard this digi, when I stupidly sold my whole Commodore 64 setup + disk collection to a stranger... arrrghh.. whenever I think about it I hate myself...

The digi is sampled from Billy Idol's "Flesh For Fantasy" but I haven't got a clue of who sampled it into the 64, no credits , no graphics , nada... this is probably one of my biggest traumas of the Commodore 64 era.

Enjoy this Coldcut !

the real thing for the Commodore 64

recorded with an emulator - Thanks Darren!

just found out that it was done by Radwar. Check the release info. Read more about Playing digis on the 64: theory, SID internals, $d418 digis, and Pulse Width Modulation in the issue #20 from C=Hacking.

    I sold my first c64, since I had another one, but I stupidly sold my programming manuals and all floppies, 1910(?) screen and floppie drive:(
    I shouldn't have done that.

    The guys from XenonDisco developed in the sportsbook 90s a series of software and hardware (that looks like a prop from the movie Wargames) to control lighting rigs for their live gigs. They programmed LSQ & ProLSQ for the Commodore 128 and ProLogic for the Commodore 64. A real cool feature of ProLSQ is that it can use DualCPU, bet nfl yes, it's possible to link two C128's in a Master-Slave fashion. wow... that really rocks. Obviously, the software required some hardware to drive the lights. First version of the hardware was a quite crude design (called "the sportsbook triac box") with 8 channels. It basically consisted of 8 optocouplers driving 8 transistors driving 8 triacs. Anyway it fulfilled our demands as we could switch sufficiently heavy loads and http://www.enterbet.com interface it directly with a Commodore 64 or 128. The triac box was mounted in the end of a long bar where 16 colored lights was mounted.
