about

Welcome dear friends to the world's first all Apple II music based album ever! This collection of timeless classics is not related to a game or as a demo shipped with software, that's another reason why this album unique. Yes, all sounds, even the drums are generated directly from motherboard of the Apple II personal computer!

Thanks to a breakthrough in Apple II audio technology from legendary coder Mr. Michael J Mahon we are able to push 8 bit instrument samples though the Apple II's 1 bit audio output! Another amazing technology boost was Charles Mangin's incredible midi hardware allowing us to control the Apple II like a midi module!

The Apple II was created in the late 1970's and popularized throughout the 1980's! Each track has been painstakingly engineered and recorded for your listening pleasure. Some eq, filtering, and other effects have been added to enhance your listening pleasure.
