Re: a simple way to hide all Mist/Mister posts

I must have the forum set up differently to you all as I've never noticed an abundance of MIST/er related posts and they certainly don't kill my vibe :) Personally i'm really interested in the work Master of Gizmo and Ijor have done and I will continue to be so as long as old ST prices continue to r...

hmm yes I see that pin now on some Scart schematics...

tomorrow i'll bell out each pin to be sure but I think you're probably on to something - i'm probably missing something essential!

DIY Monitor cable problems

Hello one and all :) I finally got round to trying to make a cable to connect my STE to my Sony PVM monitor. After a bit of googling I saw that people had had good results by presenting RGB and composite sync. I made my cable which was pretty fiddly, but I think it's ok with no shorts.. however.. Th...

Re: Escape 2042 - A new game for Atari STe

Congrats Orion, great achievement!

I'm struggling to run this in Hatari - i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong.. I see the Orion splash screen and then the language select page - I press the right arrow for English, but nothing happens :S

Am I being daft? :D

Re: YM music in Cubase?

Great idea. If you could generate a packet of information (note on, instrument(?), midi channel) then it would be conceivable to pipe that into an existing YM engine. The engine could be sat atop the system Timer C (done in the cleanest way possible) and as you say - timer management for special FX ...

Re: The Atari ST (and others) and the Creative People

Personally, I enjoyed the book. It's very well executed in terms of presentation and quality of the physical product. The narrative - at first I found it very odd to be quite honest, but I warmed to it - gonzo meets scene poetry :D My favourite bit was the piece on the Megadeth font. Personally i co...

Re: Sync-buzzer technique

Thanks alot Ben, it's really interesting to me as, while i was reading, i remembered I'd infact seen this behaviour to a degree in hatari - so I quickly checked on a regular pure buzzer sound, and sure enough, if i set the period to zero, i hear a very small reduction in level on a pure envelope bas...

Re: Sync-buzzer technique

Sorry Steven I confused matters there - in the vid Gwem detunes the buzzer envelope period, not the note period. That's really interesting information from Ben/OVR, about the effect iof the null period. In the emulator (Hatari) I don't hear any difference between a period of 0 and muting the square ...

Re: Sync-buzzer technique

In the vid Gwem explains the relationship between the period and the resultant sound. You see him detuning the period vs the timer frequency. So no - the period doesn't need to be zero, and modulating the period (decoupled from the timer frequency) is the gateway to awesome sounds! Setting the perio...
