It's been long in the making - ever since we first heard it in Backscatter back in 2015, WaveSabre has been a fabled softsynth delivering the boom to several memorable 64k intros. With Ferris and h0ffman presenting the software at the very recent Demobit event in Slovakia, we know it wasn't long - and now, finally, the software is freely available on GitHub.
Now, community, give us some tuuuunes! :)
Hope everyone's having fun and hacking on various bits of Demozoo :) The third hackathon is well under way, and if you're not already there, please do stop by our Slack to chat. We'll be around all weekend, so come say hi!
Now, for some news. We're happy to announce that we have cooperated with the premier Amiga demoscene database Janeway, for an export of all their data, for inclusion in Demozoo. This means that over the next few weeks, you'll see a significant bump in Amiga-related information on Demozoo. Just to put the amount of data in perspective, they currently sit at over 90,000 productions alone. Thank you very much to the entire Janeway team - particularly Asle and Zeg, for the generous gesture of allowing us their data. At Demozoo, we value open data, and we're very happy that our brothers and sisters working on more specific sites feel the same.
We'd like to stress very explicitly that this does not in any way shape or form mean that Janeway is going away. The team is motivated and active, and will still be going forward for many years to come.
