The Mark Time Music Box by Melbourne House
« on: 11:08, 21 September 21 »
1986 UK commercial music program.
The sample file plays from 1:06 to the end and I could certainly see it being used in a game from the eighties.

From the cassette cover:
"THE MUSIC BOX enables full use of the sound chip in the Amstrad CPC range of computers, giving three sound channels and envelopes, slide effects, percussion effects and volume control.
It allows you to build up tunes channel by channel on keys sets out as for a musical keyboard. Once composed a tune can be played back directly, perhaps through your hi-fi, or saved for later incorporation in your own games or educational software.
This program stretches the sound chip in to its utmost limits, without assuming any programming or musical knowledge."

Mmm, three reviews at CPCRulez:
