The Tweety Board is a solderless board that adds true stereo sound to the ST computer. It can also be used on other Atari computers (STe, TT, F030) to add stereo output to software that uses the original ST sound hardware.

TWEETY BOARD from Practical Solutions, Inc.
Stereo sound for the Atari ST is here! Tweety Board provides true stereo
output that will blow you away! Now you can play all your favorite games
and hear a whole new sound dimension with true-to-life effects. Music
programs sparkle with a vividness never before realized.
The ST computers already have three channels of sound supported in their
hardware. Atari combined the three together, resulting in one monophonic
channel, to make it compatible with the monitor's sound. That's fine for
monitors but hardly impressive when listened to with a stereo system.
Tweety Board solves the problem with it's small circuit board specially
designed to access those hidden channels. It works in parallel with the
ST's existing sound circuitry making it completely compatible with all ST
software. You can also program your own effects or music! The sound from
your monitor remains untouched and still functions in it's normal use.
Simply plug Tweety Board inside your machine and the three independent RCA
jacks are ready to hook up to your three amplified speakers. An adapter
cable is provided for hookup to a standard two-channel sound system.
No matter which way you connect it, you've never heard such vibrant 3-D or
crystal clear stereo sound from your ST. No buzz or noise and an easy,
solderless installation - what more could you ask for?
Tweety Board will be available in the 1st week of December with a retail
price of only $59.95.
The tweety board is a rather useless a poor quality sound enhancement.
It adds pseudo-stereo to the YM soundchip output. The STE's DMA sound is far better. I don't know of any software that took advantage of the tweety's other features
