Event id #3046 : Like It's '83 Music Compo 2021

Welcome to the first and maybe not the last edition of Like It's '83 Music Compo!

Main goal is to faithfully recreate the spirit of early SID pieces, composed even before titans like Hubbard, Galway, or Tel did hit the scene. That said, there are no rigid limits regarding technical aspect whatsoever - it's up to contestants to bring good old times back and up to audience to judge how successful their attempts were. So bring the old shit on! <3

Compo rules:

1. No covers and remixes allowed. Some little hints or pastiches to increase fun factor are allowed, on the other hand.
2. No upper limit for playtime - if you feel up to 20 minutes suite - go for it!
3. No limit of tunes per author but each composition has to be at least 2 minutes long.
4. Any tool of your choice - it might be custom routine or any routine used back in the days (David Dunn or Russell Lieblich for example if they provided any tools online). Rip routines if you need to. Don't rip music data, though! :D Procedurally generated music is also allowed but it has to produce at least 2 minutes of unique and reasonable content. Interpret 'reasonable' as you wish :D
5. Votes will be counted on basis of CSDB voting system but the result is going to rely on my custom algorithm (squared amount of votes which already proved reliable before).
6. No money prizes included - you do it for fun and glory!

Any additional rules will be added on the fly. Good luck and have fun! <3

Perfect compo for me, I need to learn the SID from scratch. Been always "borrowing" instruments \õ/

This time you can luckily forget about any sound engineering - pure composition skills all the way :D

I'd give much to have LFT in the compo :D Don't be that sure about him winning, though ;)

I've written a couple of drivers for these kind of tracks if anyone gets stuck. You'll have to write your music in code but eh, that's the spirit eh? I do have a GT>Hubbard converter as well but that's for later era, don't think there's much documentation on these earlier drivers.

One tip for getting the Dunn sound is having different waveforms for your gate on and gate off modes (like a $41 with a $50 or something) with a good spacing between those two states rather than a couple of frames like when using tables.

I believe he also used sort of rough pulsemod in his later tunes like Thai Boxing.

There's a driver (12) in the SID Factory II package that is really to the bone. No fancy stuff, what so ever. No wave tabs, no hard restart, not even pulse mod.

decent tune..

but give pea's a chance.. "Theatre Europe" :-)


no covers ? one of the first demo disk by bogg was solely covers. none of this "trickery" used in later tunes is a bit of an ask also.

shall I do a "sound like follin prog-rock comp" in a few months ;-)
