I have this weird feeling that this can't be real... but it is. It really happened o.O fucking wow!

Algo paved the way, and then someone like CyberBrain shows what you can do with it.
This is like a new benchmark in optimization. All this going on at once; splits, samples, like WTF?
I hope this will spawn some tasty new demos in the future. The good ole 64 hasn't reached its limit just yet. Amazing!

Very impressive tech-demo. This was like "WTF" on the bigscreen. Everyone will try this technique in future demos.

Oh my golly gosh!

This has just blown me away. Superb work by NoName.

I'd like to see this tech used in new C64 games (there's still plenty of them getting done I see). It would add an extra dimension without the usual overheads.

Brilliant stuff.

this is simply awesome, I know shit about these voco... tech but it is awesome it sounds great.. I was first more into the sideborder thingy and said during the compo finally some sideborder mmm splits too... great.. and then I started to think hey... this sound is really great wtf.... and then the song really kicked in. "My Hump..."
I could only scratch my head here ;)
awesome tech demo...

Very impressive stuff. Loving the rasterbars and ofcourse the hightec stuff. Let's see where this leads to!!

Cyberbrain my old chum... I remember asking you about the prodigy when you were 14-15years old and you didn't know them.. And now you release this amazing demo 20 years later haha.. Well done and nice to see you're still active.. :)

exactly, what a comeback! so much sound packed in 1 file, so many effects, really really cool! next time the rasterbars should rotate though ;)

Talk about coming back to the scene with an entrance, oh my!

Very nice to see such an awesome release! Also the Prodigy sample was a great bit of phun to your previous release from all those years ago :)

Hope to see more, thanks for setting a new high bar.. can't wait to see this in more demo's!

Seeing a new NoName demo in 2014 warms my heart, seeing it is also superawesome explodes my mind!

NoName for the win!

Yeah, Lemming, I believe that that was the actual world's first claimed in the bottom scroller.

Heh. I was being lazy. But honestly the full audio decode itself was only a few rasterlines. Just decided to fill the rest of the cpu time with char animations (frodigi 3)

Unless I missed the part of Frodigi which had fullscreen open-border sprite+rasterbar+scroller action going on, it's not the same , Jan :)
could've been I was on drugs tho... xD

well, isnt this basicly the same as FRODIGI ? by algorithm. playing the sampled on registers, instead d418. (takes almost no time). anyho it sound like a sick goat :)
User Comment
Submitted by algorithm on 27 October 2014
By the way, my personal no1 in the compo is this (I love tech demos)

Is there any chance of giving the original audio that was used (I would like to test it out using my encoder)

I have done a quick encode for voodoo people using two settings in my encoder (But none of these use the filter to hide some squelching)

Direct nonbass mode here.

And using the bass mode (keep on listening to it until the drums start)

Great quality, and awesome presentation!

Nice quality. After analysis of the code, I assume you are using 256 frequency values and fixed sustain for the three channels. Triangle waveform only? with $d418 adjustments This has the advantage of using less data (and allowing for the possibility of brute force) for optimum quality. But would suffer for other data which consist of instrumentation/basslines (or are there parameters in your encoder where you can select other options?)

My implementation uses 4096 frequency steps (12bit) and 4 waveforms each channel. Unfortunately brute force would be too much of a hindrance . (although I may implement some brute forcing at some stage - via layered approach if using 12bit freqs)

How are your tests for music with basslines and other content (e.g instrumentation, drums, speech, bassline simultaneously)? I had attempted to demonstrate this in Frodigi3, but the quality suffered due to the complex data.
Frodigi 1 and 2 were pretty much quite basic in features in comparison to 3.

The next one on the Agenda (Frodigi 4)seem to (finally fix the clicking issue and volume levels)

was blown away while watching it on the "stream". this tech could be used for a singing demo, with HC effects. any plans for releasing compressor/player?:)

Great stuff! I wonder what the method here is. Algorithm did similar thing with his free running oscillator digis. Looking forward to learning more.
User Comment
Submitted by Jammer on 27 October 2014
Well, it's basically Algorithm's frodigi routine but CyberBrain managed to achieve greater clarity. No world first though, sorry ;) And I suppose it uses 3 channels as well thus we can forget about sid part and samples at the same time :) Still both thumbs up!
