I started out this post looking to write a non-Arduino story, but it just wasn’t meant to be. I’m a huge fan of computer generated music, dating back to my days of playing games and composing music on the Commodore 64. I still love that classic SID sound, and was floored to hear it in the new 50 Cent and Justin Timberlake tune, Technology:
Well, I’m sure I’ll have more posts on that coming in the future, but while researching tonight I found myself sidetracked by Toni Westbrook‘s awesome project to bring Guitar Hero to the C64 and the SID.
A closer look reveals that Toni’s programming the ATMega8 chip that he’s got the controller wired into with, what else, an Arduino! Even digging into C64 music projects, I still ended up with an Arduino post.
