Self Test BEEP Test Song

Post by rprosperi »

Does anyone know the song played by the BEEP Test in the Self Test Menu?

Just found this now, and am surprised it was not mentioned yet.

Accessed by [Shift] [Setup] [4] [2] [5]. This Self Test menu was not in the Beta releases.

I am guessing the answer will reveal something about the author's home...

It's so beautiful it makes me want to become a Swiss citizen! (Then again Trump makes me want the same thing!)

If I buy someone a drink to congratulate them, is it a Mazel Tov cocktail?

It's the Swiss National Anthem :) (Schweizerpsalm / Cantique suisse / Salmo svizzera)

Thanks to both of you!

So, I was right, even though I didn't know it....

I actually found a (different) youtube video to see if it was exactly this, but for some strange reason that version used actual instruments and voices, so could not be sure. Had it been done in BEEPS, I would have recognized this.
