CHIPNSFX is a software suite whose purpose is to let the user write music to be played on 1980s 8-bit platforms based on the Z80 processor and three-channel, white-noise sound generators such as the AY-3-8910 and YM2149 chips. This spans several platforms: Amstrad CPC, Sinclair Spectrum 128, MSX1, Sega Master System... In theory other platforms such as the Commodore 64 would be supported as well.

The suite is divided in two halves: on one hand, CHIPNSFX.EXE, the tracker, a Win32 console application that handles both the writing of the music and the generation of binary data to be used by the player; on the other hand, CHIPNSFX.I80, the player, a Z80 library to be used by games and demos requiring a tiny code size (between 600 and 800 bytes) while still allowing for sound effects such as amplitude and noise envelopes and effects, chord arpeggios and note vibratos.

The suite also includes several songs written with the tracker and a simple jukebox for Amstrad CPC as an example of how to use the player.

★ UPDATES:
  1. 2017-05-13: first public release of the tracker (binary only, no source code yet because it's pure chaos) and the player (source code and sample binary).
  2. 2017-05-23: second public release. New command line options -F (48000 Hz) and -L (linear amplitude). A blue bar makes the active items stand out. Minor changes in the documentation file.
  3. 2017-06-02: third public release. New command line options -P (cursor follows playback), -k1, -k2 and -k STR (set QWERTZ, AZERTY or custom keyboard map), following a suggestion from Beb.
  4. 2017-06-07: fourth public release. New command Control-D tells whether the current instrument is unused or the current pattern is a duplicate (Shift: erase unused instrument, turn current pattern into a link to the pattern it is a duplicate of). Minor bugfixes: inconsistencies in -P mode and in channel toggling, better compression when generating INCLUDE files, etc. Minor changes in several songs. New DESPERA1.CHP.
  5. 2017-06-16: fifth public release. Fixed a file dialog bug reported by Garvalf (who also wrote CHIPNSFX's first new song from scratch), as well as minor internal consistency bugs. Pattern panel allows using Control-D. New ATOMINO3.CHP and DESPERA2.CHP.
  6. 2017-07-07: sixth public release. New command line options -y and -Y (generate YM3 file, either full song or song loop), commands Control-W (apply transposition to current pattern), Control-D (detect duplicates and optionally erase them), Control-E (check for duplicates and optionally create them). Minor changes in CHIPNSFX.I80 extended mode vibratos, in the file dialog and the INCLUDE file compression. New DEFLEKTR.CHP, GRANGEHL.CHP, PHANTIS1.CHP, PHANTIS2.CHP, SCOR3020.CHP, THINGBBK.CHP and TIMETRAX.CHP.
    2017-07-08: revised sixth public release, with just one change: pressing backspace in order list panel updates pattern panel.
  7. 2017-07-19: seventh public public release. New extended tremolos (60-9F) lead to important changes in the amplitude effect byte: old 60-6F become 5F, old 80 becomes 9E, old 81-8F become 61-6F, old 90-9F become A0; 70-7F stay as they were. Minor optimisations in the player. New command line options -b1, -b2 and -b3. New CATABALL.CHP, FREDDY_H.CHP, HYDROFOL.CHP and SCOR3020.CHP.
  8. 2017-07-24: eighth public release. Fixed a serious bug in the noise generator: playback and WAVE output randomly skipped pure noise notes. New ATEAM.CHP, BURNINR1.CHP, BURNINR4.CHP, SOLOMON2.CHP, UNDERWTR.CHP, WESTBNK1.CHP, WESTBNK2.CHPand WINGSOD4.CHP: 32 sample songs.

QUE DIT LA LOI FRANÇAISE:

L'alinéa 8 de l'article L122-5 du Code de la propriété intellectuelle explique que « Lorsque l'œuvre a été divulguée, l'auteur ne peut interdire la reproduction d'une œuvre et sa représentation effectuées à des fins de conservation ou destinées à préserver les conditions de sa consultation à des fins de recherche ou détudes privées par des particuliers, dans les locaux de l'établissement et sur des terminaux dédiés par des bibliothèques accessibles au public, par des musées ou par des services d'archives, sous réserve que ceux-ci ne recherchent aucun avantage économique ou commercial ». Pas de problème donc pour nous!

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
