Lemming. the mp3 preview actually only has half the audio. (There is a gap of around 10 seconds before the next stage)

The quality of the final sound will be higher (the previews here are only 4bit without smoothing) Furthermore it does not utilise realtime deltademodulation hence a quarter the wavetable space
For music. it is recommended to use around 2000 waveform clippets instead of the default 256 in the original preview

Sounds good in Vice 2.2.
Interesting pack-rate, I guess this would be interesting for speech or voices in demos. For harmonic musicpatterns the quality is too harsh.

I tested the update and it's rather promising and interesting now I must admit!
If you wanna hear how it sounds on my hardware (the same as mentioned below), here's a recording, converted to MP3 V0:
(file/link will probably die at some point in the future)

I really like this, although at first I thought I was hearing more of morning prayers to Allah than that of N-trance ;)
It would have been great not to have music but rather straight down talk, like a play or something.
I really think these kinds of efforts will result in something cool, it is clear already that both your experimentation in restricted,
animated or compressed graphics and now compressed sounds will result in something out of the ordinary!

Keep on for sure!

Aaaargh. Darn codebase digiboost routine. I should have tested it before, but thanks for the info. Uploaded updated version which should be audible on all sid's.
This version is still only 4bit, The delta encoded waveform version will sound a lot smoother

Extremely silent on a real C64 with a 6581 (1983)

hmm sorry to be a bugger, but... it's clearly audible in vice with reSID 8580+Digiboost, is BARELY audible in reSID 6581, but it's totally silent in reSID-fp 6581, any setting. totally silent also in Hoxs64 even with digiboost.

Well. This is only a quarter the size or so of c64mp3 so worse quality is to be expected. I have uploaded a slightly higher bitrate version (which only uses 3k more (13k total compressed)
Fitting this speech in a higher space would increase quality even more dramatically

i can barely recognize anything :) so far C64MP3 wins in every aspect =P

2 minutes of audio in 10k, i would guess no one would expect miracles. certainly is compressed extremely heavily

probably too much compressed, sounds too bad =)

Proof of concept. I have developed an audio compressor which is specifically designed to compress data that is 'easy' and non-processor intensive to decompress.
The example here is speech at 0.5kbs. (2 mins long) there is a silent gap half way through)
The audio track is the acapella version of 'n-trance - set you free'

About this site:
CSDb (Commodore 64 Scene Database) is a website which goal is to gather as much information and material about the scene around the commodore 64 computer - the worlds most popular home computer throughout time. Here you can find almost anything which was ever made for the commodore 64, and more is being added every day. As this website is scene related, you can mostly find demos, music and graphics made by the people who made the scene (the sceners), but you can also find a lot of the old classic games here. Try out the search box in the top right corner, or check out the CSDb main page for the latest additions.
