SiD vs PoKEY (Commodore 64 music vs Atari 800 music) - Organizized TV

Opis filmu

A comparison between 8 bit home computer sound chips. The Commodore 64's much lauded SiD chip and the Atari 800's PoKEY chip. To make the fight fair, I compare the the same games on both systems, written by very respected game music maestros of the era - Gary Gilbertson, Adam Gilmore and David Whittaker. Ballblazer is unique in that it was created using an algorithm program. In this edition, to mark the occasion, my self written intro music is replaced by Rob Hubbarb's fantastic title music from the Atari 800 version of Jet Set Willy. You'll have your own opinion about which sound chip is best. And no doubt that will be because you owned that home computer at the time and have many great memories from the system and that era. Or perhaps this side by side comparison makes you second guess yourself? Let us know what you think in the comments. Thanks.
