RBMA Lecture with Hirokazu "Hip" TANAKA

Post by koitsu » Tue Nov 25, 2014 12:09 pm

Last month Red Bull Music Academy did a nearly-2-hour-long lecture/interview with Hirokazu "Hip" TANAKA where he discusses details of music-making, hardware engineering decisions (regarding the Gameboy and Famicom), the history of Nintendo of Japan, music genres, and all sorts of other stuff. I figure folks would enjoy this:


English subtitles are available for the Japanese portions (click the "CC" button in the video).

At 5:50 in the video, he says that the Famicom only has one noise pattern, when of course the 2A03 has both white noise and periodic noise, at least in later revisions.

This is a perfectly good explanation for why he might remember it not having periodic noise.
