This new album is the result of sound experiments created via Classic 1989 Game Boy that began in 2015 and ended in March of 2017. We sought to explore the outer reaches of the Game Boy’s 8-bit CPU/4-bit sound chip, especially it’s dynamic wave channel sound manipulation capacity. Towards the end of the production cycle we added Commodore 64 synth bass and other sounds to round out the albums sound. We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labor!
We are getting the jump on Black Friday by offering our 56 track 8 Bit Weapon collection for just $5, regularly $20! The album is everything we released from 1998-2012, including our 8 festive holiday tracks for the coming season!
The folks at motherboard were kind enough to interview us about our new Class Apples Album!
“Titled Class Apples, the album takes classical tracks from the likes of Bach and Mozart and digitally reimagines them through that 1-bit system, creating a bouncy, synthesized symphony that feels right out of a 80s-era video game.”
