Chiptunes

So my friend David found this really cool program for Teen Read Week in October. It's called Chiptunes and sadly, I had not heard of it before now . Let me tell you, this is a super cool idea and is going to be a really neat program. You take an old gaming system (NES, Atari, Sega, etc.) and use it's sound chip to create music on your computer. And we'll have a DJ here on Oct. 22nd @ 4pm to show you how it works!! It's going to be an awesome program . And just in case you aren't totally psyched already, check out cool video link using NES: www.youtube.com/v/SKmShBu1W8Y 

And yes, this is what a Nintendo gaming console looked like when I was a kid
