Chip Player JS Online Real-Time Music Player @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
Chip Player JS by Matt Montag is awesome! This browser-based music wonderland plays back a variety of real-time music/performance notation formats including .mid (MIDI), .mod (tracker), .nsf (Nintendo), .vgz (SEGA) and more. It includes over 100,000 ready-to-play songs, organized by system.
All of this is presented as a beautiful, throwback file browser that just makes me happy. Chip Player JS is super responsive, sounds great, allows instrument/sound font customization, and includes a few types of visualization.
In this blog post, Montag writes that he created Chip Player JS to replicate functionality of Winamp he missed:
Ten years ago, I stopped using Windows and switched to Mac. But I held on to a Windows XP virtual machine – for the sole purpose of playing ancient music formats in Winamp. Even while I was working at Spotify, Winamp was running in the background.
Chip Player JS was built to replace this inconvenient way of playing chiptunes and MIDI files. There are other modern alternatives, such as Audio Overload by Richard Bannister. But nothing had the charm and configurability of the old Winamp plugins.
