No, it isn't just Bad, it's outright terrible. Why a talented composer like Takayuki Nakamura would butcher a simple cover song so thoroughly remains a mystery to me. Sorry for posting this, I'll make up for it tomorrow ;)
It's time for a new DD special. This week, we take a look (or rather listen) at the SEGA Master System.
As we all know, music certainly wasn't one of the strong points of the SMS, and the Texas Instruments SN76489 used by the console counts arguably as one of the worst soundchips ever made. However, if you can look beyond the the almost complete absence of bass, there were actually some pretty killer soundtracks available on the machine back in the days.
So, without further ado, here's the Daily Dosis' SMS Special.
There's people who like to take apart trucks and cars. There's people who like to take apart computers and electronic toys. And then there's people who like to take apart microchips.
Some of these, like the Russian team ZeptoBars, are kind enough to document their unusual hobby. So, if you ever wondered what an EEPROM looks like on the inside, or you want to check out some CPUs and go "Aaah! Oooh!", then I highly recommend you check out their blog at zeptobars.ru.
Since all of the currently available information on the SC61860 (aka ESR-H) CPU used in some of Sharp's pocket calculators seems to be neither complete nor free of errors, I decided to make my own mnemonics table.
