“Still Alive” Played with 8-voice Polyphony on an MSP430 ‘Fraunchpad’

8-voices mixed in the micro, with nothing on the output but an RC integrator.

What the heck is a “Fraunchpad”? Well, it’s similar to the Launchpad, but with FRAM (Ferroelectric RAM, not an oil filter). Specifically, it’s the MSP-EXP430FR5739. The song data is stored in the FRAM.

The source code and more info is available here.

Nice hack, oPossum!
