This is really a proof of concept, I made for the idea of playing simultaneously two ZX Spectrum computers, where one is playing chiptune music and the second one is playing digital music (6 channels in total).
I was wondering if it keeps tempo properly - and it appeared it works OK.
I don't know if it sounds very well, but at least sounds kind of interesting, I'd say.

One Spectrum is playing a chiptune part from ZX SoundTracker 1.1.
The second Spectrum is playing a 3-channels 4-bit digi-music from SampleTracker 2.1.

ZX Spectrum is a computer from 1982 year.
CPU speed: 3,5 Mhz.
RAM: 48Kb.

AY-interface contains General Instrument AY-3-8910 chip or ym2149 chip (depending on model. A difference in sound is minimal).

Haha, thx - now we think about merging AY with NeoGS ZX sound-card (playing MODs on Spectrum).
But we will see. ;)
