Re: Modem midi - how to set up in Cubase and Notator?

It's also possible to get an extra MIDI input through the modem port. You need to do a small modification inside the Atari. One cut trace and one wire soldered. It needs a new Cubase driver to support it, which I can make if anyone is interested in doing the modification. The actual input socket can...

Re: Modem midi - how to set up in Cubase and Notator?

are those modem devices just hard thru? no extra circuits basically could use a couple crimp connectors and a spare 5 pin din? It's an independent output, separate from the Atari's MIDI output. But it's very, very simple! Atari MIDI out.png Export is a little more complicated. It uses the two hands...

Re: Raspberry Pi baremetal port?

There is nothing wrong with music production on Linux. WIth jack, rt core and decent hardware you can reach latencies between 1-2ms with a rock stable operation. There are even a linux based standalone synths, FX processors and VST host boxes, on the market. 1-2ms is still quite high compared to sa...

Re: Raspberry Pi baremetal port?

Hatari with a dedicated reduced Linux base without fancy shells and extra GUIs would be cool to have. I don't see the point in investing into a truely on-the-hardware implementation. Esp. if this leads only to a clone without true Atari ST hardware capabilities. Linux has a very bad level of perfor...

Re: Creating a game - Adding pictures, animation and sound

On that note, how do i open a .TTP file. You just double-click it and press OK, but you may need to type something into the text box first (command line arguments). The program's documentation hopefully explains what arguments it takes. Also if you have TOS 2.06, you can drag a file onto a .TTP pro...

That's just the development system, just as many (most?) British-made Amiga and ST games were made on IBM PCs with the PDS development system and SNASM.

Re: Devpac 3 - Where to start?

Do you have any experience with C? Most things in C have a direct equivalent in assembly language. BASIC is also helpful to know to understand program flow, but it won't teach much about memory addresses.

Re: TT and monitor stand

Re: SMSPlus for the Atari falcon

Unless you rework each game like Anima did with the x68k and the Neo Geo games there is no way you can emulate it on a standard Falcon. Megadrive should be unlikely on a CT60 without supervidel either way. Genecyst the oldest emulator needed a pentium with 8MB of RAM to work so it is within the CT6...

Re: SMSPlus for the Atari falcon

Using the DSP is an even crazier idea ha It's probably a bit overkill. Mapping the SN76489 tone channels to the YM2149 should be really easy. You'd just need a lookup table of 1024 pitches to convert them. It looks like there are only 3 frequencies and 2 types of noise. You'd only need 6 lookup tab...
