    Ahh, okay, well I kind of just noticed the title may be a little bit misleading...

    Butttt. I found this awesome video this dude made! He uses a Gameboy (or the sounds rather) to do a cover of Michael Jackson's Beat It... Pretty cool if you ask meee!

    Awesome. I have very recently gotten into 8 bit somewhat.

    It's obvious that was made using a tracker, not an actual gameboy. [​IMG]

    Some sounds are obviously impossible to be produced by a Gameboy, so I don't believe the video. However, it's still a nice 8bit version of Beat It [​IMG]

    From a nerd's point of view (Me), that's embarrassing. He's using a Game Boy Color, and claims to be making music with it, but it's not whatever-bit (32?) the GBC is, but rather 8-bit. I know it's supposed to be a joke, but he could've at least done it with an NES. I've used LSDJ (A GB/C program that you use on the GB/C to make music...So basically a tracker), and it sounds nothing like this.

    Again, I know it's a joke, so don't complain because I went too in-depth.

    The gameboy color's processor is 8-bit, it's just a faster variant of the original game boy's. As with the original, it uses four-channel sound (the fifth channel was never used IIRC).

    It's retro 8-bit sound, but the video is a joke and he's not actually making the music, which is disappointing.
