Project Galway


ChiptuneNOW WITH ALL MG SUBTUNES IN WAV, MP3 and FLAC. Digital Download Only.

Martin Galway's SIDs were composed to sound good on his SID chip: even with the filter usage.

When Martin gave us the opportunity to record all of his SIDs from that very chip, we jumped at the chance, and Alistair "Boz" Bowness did the honours. He also wrote a cross-compiler that allowed us to rescue the mythical Street Hawk tunes including an unexpected and trippy high score tune, and even find some hidden tunes. We recorded all the files in 16-bit 44.1khz (because that's the equipment we had in 2002).

This was released as a double album in 2003, but has now been greatly expanded as a digital download with all of Martin's subtunes and SFX recorded from his chip presented here with painstaking tagging, aided by reference to his actual source code. 

If you haven't heard a Project Galway Galway recording, you haven't heard Galway!

This project is the kind of thing was set up to do: use its resources to make magic happen, and give history a gift (like we brought Rob Hubbard back to SID in Project Hubbard in 2018).
