A ZX Spectrum program available for streaming

The case of this album (and this program) is a bit peculiar: I couldn’t find any information about the author. But the track PRINT 'Hola' from the album Parallax (by Z80) contains a small program for the ZX Spectrum.

Instead of repeating all the previous articles each time, I’ll refer you to the dedicated page, which explains what I do with vinyl records and lists all the pages containing programs, explanations, etc.


Well, judging by the command, one can probably guess that the program likely comes from Spain, and this message on a forum indicates that the album (dating back to 2011) was released by Chaparra Entertainment (given the name, it’s very likely Spanish). It’s available on Apple Music (and others), and I simply bought the track to retrieve it without DRM. Once the track was converted to WAV and processed for conversion into a TZX file usable with an emulator (well, in practice, we can often use the WAV, but anyway), I launched the program. Notably, it worked on the first try, which isn’t automatic.

The cover

The program itself is very short and very simple: it draws a ZX Spectrum. That’s all.
