Hello to you all from rainy ol' UK.
I'm Mark, older than most of you, and I used to be involved with the Commodore Amiga demoscene in the late 80's early 90's with the handle TDK, and wrote a load of tunes for the likes of Anthrox and Melon Dezign. The chippies seem to become rather popular, and last year I decided to bring TDK out of retirement to work on a Chiptune album. It seems that I'll likely write a few.
The sound of the chip-scene has changed quite a bit over the years, but you can't flog a dead horse so I'm planning to carry on writing in the style I'm used to, but using a few more modern production techniques.
I'm using Cubase on PC, Melon-tracker (a rebrand of Protracker) on the Amiga, Cynthcart and Mssiah on C64, SIDStation, MIDINes and at some point a sammichsid (when I can build it) plus I Kickstarted the Retrocade Synth.http://www.flitkillsmoths.co.uk
will take you to my latest album and I'm also on Facebook as http://www.facebook.com/marktdkknight
where I post tasters of what I'm up to when I have the time, balancing work with home etc.
I'm a sound designer by trade, working on Racing games for Codemasters, and am also semi-pro electric violinist,
