8O Wow. Any idea why Atari needed to write their stock off like that rather than just sell them off cheaply?

Re: Turbochip - 7-channel YM+DMA replay

Small update, waveform editor. Screen is a lot smoother on the real thing, Hatari's video recording is a bit low framerate on my laptop.

I'd suggest not having the sound up too loud for this one!

Re: Atari STE top/bottom case replacement

I /think/ though I'm not totally sure, that unless you wanted to use the extended joystick ports on the side, they will fit into a STF/STFM base, but just obviously not be usable. The main thing you'd have to do is punch out two holes at the back for the stereo audio RCA connectors.

Re: [WANTED] Atari 1040 STe Badge

I have a 1040STE badge that became loose from the machine because the glue had dried up, it happens to have the protective plastic cellophane thing over the top still so it's been well protected. I'll take a photo later. £10 inc. postage?

Re: Turbochip - 7-channel YM+DMA replay

Thanks for trying it out! :) I've got an idea what that could be so I'll address that and upload a new version when I've put more features in. Unfortunately I haven't got a Satan or hard disk to test it on. Here's a cover that I did of one of my favourite C64 tunes, really pleased with how it came o...

Re: Turbochip - 7-channel YM+DMA replay

After I'd got the STE out to have a nice go on r0x Zero I decided to try this out on the real thing and found there was a problem using a trick to get an extra 16 pixels out of the STE, only seems to work in medium resolution in the emulator and not on actual hardware. So I've altered the screen lay...

Re: Turbochip - 7-channel YM+DMA replay

Got the bones of an editor going now so I'll post the progress so far so you can have a play. Have used it in Hatari, seems to only like TOS 1.62 at the moment though. There's no way to edit the waveforms or drum sounds yet, but there is a bass drum and snare drum and a handful of wavetable waveform...

Re: Turbochip - 7-channel YM+DMA replay

Thanks! Reading up about the 68k swap instruction for fixed point and figuring it out that way really helped (was doing Bresenham-type scaling before and turns out that's not really the way to go). It's about a third of a VBL at the moment but that's because I haven't quite got my head around using ...

Re: Turbochip - 7-channel YM+DMA replay

Changed the mixing to multiplexed 50kHz and added a handful of effect commands, sounds a lot cleaner now! It's really nice having the space in the YM channels to add very lengthy echo notes.

Now "just" to write an editor...

Re: Turbochip - 7-channel YM+DMA replay

You're right, wavetable stuff is pretty fascinating. The way I'm mixing is with the usual approach of writing 500 double-buffered bytes and switching/restarting DMA per VBL, using a scale table for the tuned channels and incrementally stepping through the PCM data for the drums. Going with the appro...

Cheers guys! Looking forward to hearing what it's capable of in the hands of the talented Atari chip musicians :) Wouldn't imagine it's an easy case of dropping support for additional channels into existing editors so I'll need to spin one of my own at some point.

I spotted the Arkos stuff as I was working on this and wondered the same!

Turbochip - 7-channel YM+DMA replay

Not sure if this ought to go into the YM or Digital subforum because it's a bit of both. I've started work on a 7-channel sound routine that uses DMA audio to play 3 channels of 256-byte wavetable data with variable pitch and 1-channel of fixed-pitch full-size samples (for drums and that) alongside ...
