Commodore 64 Synthesizer

February 2014 | By Igor Zinken


An homage to the most awesome synthesizer ever produced : the Commodore 64. Yes, this device had its limitations (no more than 3 simultaneous voices for one, hence the need to quickly arpeggiate through notes to sound "chords"), a limited output resolution and fragile hardware, but it made up for it with loads of charm and providing gamers with excellent filtered bass lines. Now the C64's pulse width modulation runs inside your web browser using the WebAudio API and a friendly on screen keyboard interface.
