I thought it time to mention a bit of Atari news for tonight, much to the delight of AtariCrypt. As in celebration of a new year, Peter Jørgensen (bionic nerd) has made available an exceedingly good music demo on the Atari ST called 'Outrun New Year Music Demo 2017'. Yes you guessed it, that classic racing game known as Outrun which was a huge hit in the 1980's in the Arcades and ported over to other systems and designed by Yu Suzuki, is going to blast away your retro speakers as many of the tracks from Outrun are ready for your listening pleasure on the Atari ST.
As noted on the source site and by the creator, he has always liked the music from outrun and felt those who had an Atari ST where cheated on. The first track was missing, it kept shifting between the two other tunes every time someone died and lastly as a further blow, he felt David Whittaker didn't do his best with the large music files in YMT format running at 300hz. So as an early special, Peter released this Outrun music demo for 2017 and hopes to make a new sound format that takes less space. Doesn't that sound so awesome? :)
