µP (reads: “MicroPlay”) is a format like an EP or LP, just much much tinier. Each release is 1.486077097505669 seconds long in total.
µPs are also compatible with wavetable oscillators like the MiniWave and Piston Honda, so granular remixing is part of the plan. The following releases were available in 2 limited pressings. Handpainted copies went first-come first-serve. All physical copies sold out in both runs.
1 µP: a split release by special stage and paper kettle. This release reproduces waveforms from our most beloved chips. My tracks are born of the NES’s 2A03, and special stage’s are from the Commodore 64′s SID. Download here (includes lossless tagged aif audio release, .256, Intel hex file, ROM map, high-res cover art, and photoshoot goodies)
Brainrom µP: is 1 hour of my brainwaves, condensed into 65,536 samples (1.486077097505669 seconds when played at 44,100hz audio rate). The recording was done on January 17th, 2011 using an Emotiv neuroheadset. It is freely available for download (includes .256 raw data, Intel hex file, and high-res cover art). These are most interesting when treated as control rate signals modulation source – for example, here they are controlling another oscillator.
Pocket Monster µP: It has 256 unique waveforms from a Serge Creature. Sonically, this ROM sounds like Tritoch (the frozen esper from Final Fantasy 6) as the glassy voiced court translator for the Robot King of All Cosmos from Katamari Forever. Download here (includes lossless aiff, .256 raw data, Intel hex file, and high-res cover art).
PLL µP: 256 unique waveforms from the Schumann PLL analog harmonizer. Glitch partials, distortion, and general mayhem. Download here (includes lossless aiff, .256 raw data, Intel hex file, and high-res cover art), All releases are under a Creative Commons BY-SA 3.0 license.
