Music For Microcontrollers digitally remastered #ElectronicMusic #Microcontrollers
Linus Åkesson’s Music For Microcontrollers from 2007–2010 has been resynthesized in high fidelity.
Enjoy crisp alias-free renditions of these songs on your favourite streaming music platform, or grab the mp3 files!
Through the years, I’ve composed a number of tunes for microcontrollers—those tiny computers that run the world embedded inside elevators and washing machines. Some of the songs are demo soundtracks (Craft, Phasor, and Turbulence), and some are standalone tunes (Hardware Chiptune Project and Power Ninja Action Challenge).
So I dug up the old source code for each project and ported it to run on a desktop computer, keeping the playroutine and song data intact but increasing the sample rate and bit depth. Then I replaced the oscillators with band-limited versions that need more CPU power but produce clean alias-free 8-bit waveforms.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
