C64 Tantalize Demo

The Legendary Commodore 64:

The Commodore 64 was one of the first home computers that really took off, eventually selling more than 10 million units. Source: geek.com

The demo that stood the test of time is the ‘Tantalize’ demo from Supreme. I mainly wrote routines to help others and I did a lot of PR work to put members in contact with other (local) demo groups at the CCO (Computer Club Oosterhout), in the late 1980s [The Netherlands]. I still love watching demos and enjoying the stunning SID chip.

I was a member of Megaforz and Supreme (Code, Graphics, Text).
My nickname was The Shadow Master [SADO].

Quote: When I was 9, my parents gave me a Commodore 64, which was fun. At the time, the opportunity to program your own computer was easier than it is today. Today there are significantly larger barriers because of the complexity built into computing. — Sergey Brin

The Music: If there’s one thing about the Commodore 64 that ignites more nostalgia than the games, it’s the music. The sound chip on the computer, the legendary SID, could only play three sounds at a time — it had three channels for output. Let me tell you that making music on the Commodore 64 was no walk in the park. The average musician didn’t use any kind of music software to compose the songs, no! The musician would create their own small piece of software for playing music and the instruments in assembly, and then create the music by typing in numbers for each note. This meant that the musician had to be a programmer as well. (source: hackernoon.com/a-love-letter-to-the-commodore-64)
