It's Spectrum, I'm in!!

There used to be a small app for Windows called the 'Follinator', basically a player program for all the amazing Tim Follin derived compositions from the Spectrum, C64 and Amiga Days. Can't seem to find it on the net - anyone have a copy?

I may be 15, but God I love the old stuff when you had to spend a few to get decent audio out of the system...

Ahh the loading noise of Spectrum. It was like it got angrier and angrier. The loading and changing of tapes was near on a game itself. Then youd often get hit with a load error and have to do it all over, like some kinda boss fight.

I can still remember the picture loading noises for Jet Pac 35-odd years later. youtube.com/wat…vG0

Also I can remember when Ceefax used to broadcast in the middle of the night in the early 1980s - and they'd have Spectrum "downloads" broadcast as well - not sure how you'd get a clear enough recording of the audio, or even what the programs were - but pretty novel for its time.

... or on LBC radio in London on a Sunday afternoon with Clive Bull! How a baffled radio listener put up with that I have no idea. Loved it as a kid though.

Wow! I'm a retro gamer and I never knew about that site! Thats brilliant Need a C64 one now..

Have I read this wrong, its saying free for only one month. It asks for payment option up front......
Ooooooo the days of Manic Miner and the other 1000's of games ....
Good old Speccy !!!!!!

FUXSOFT lol

Spooky, just as I start to type Electric Dreams starts playing on the radio!!!

Anyway I'm from the 80's and if you want to hear some real haunting retro sounds look up some old Atari 8 bit games and demo's

Commodore C64 now please!

The Java online emulator I used to use was called something like zxspectrum.net and seemed to be Spanish (though in English), even had a live chatroom on the side of the page - that seems to have disappeared.

Shame as I used to spend hours playing Chris Sievey's The Biz on it (even though it was written in BASIC it was quite amusing to play!).

Here's another online Speccy emulator (Czech site though) that has tons of games on it

zx-spectrum.cz/ind…2=4 (use the drop-down menu in the middle)

Yeah, wif ya dosh.

I found this a few years ago and bookmarked it. I've been waiting for a legitimate reason to share it - Now's the time.

This song needs to be shared more :))

Thank you for giving me nightmares tonight.
Oh my god that sound is horrifying. And people who grew up in the 90s like myself complained about dial-up sounds. Those loading sounds on the spectrum sound considerably worse, and appear to have been composed by Satan himself.

I grew up with it, so I find that "noise" quite heavenly

I loved the 48k speccy and the noises that Tim Follin managed to squeeze from the beeper were amazing in the end. Multi channel sound m.youtube.com/wat…uHE

To add this item you need to add some form of payment method, why, its free. Lol

Ringtones cool

To be a song there must be some singing.

Used to love Chase Hq on my spectrum +3 (the disc version).

Wrong 8 bit computer. The Commodore 64 had a real sound chip.

Thanks

Technically, it's still the right computer - the ZX Spectrum 128K, which came along a few years after the 16K/48K/+ versions, DID have an AY Chip

..if only there was a method of finding out these facts in a matter of seconds!

yep agreed that's why most specy owners went onto a commodore 64

Music!! Don't waste my time. Cold.

You can't beat the farty drum sounds!
