analmux Posted January 6, 2008 Share Posted January 6, 2008 (edited) Hello all. Last few weeks I was investigating some feature of Pokey that was unknown to me, and possibly unknown to most people here. Bryan pointed it out a few months ago. My first reaction was like "wow, It sounds a bit like there's another soundchip inside". I tried to analyze it, and wanted to know if it is usable in pokey tracks. A week ago I tried to use the feature in a demo-tune, which I included in an .atr The demo can be found below, which is in .atr format: You should run the file on a real atari 8 bit. Emulation doesn't support the 2-tone feature (yet ) (this is the file that can also be found on Fandal's site http://atari.fandal.cz under the name "Delta Remix"....thanks to Fandal for putting it available there ) The tune is based on an already existing RMT tune, which I slightly hacked, to enable the so called '2-tone mode' of Pokey, used for cassette IO. So, it's still an early demo version of what should really be possible with the 2-tone-filter. First of all (since Fox asked) I wanted to show that the 2-tone-filter is suited for music. More technical background can be found here, in this AA thread: http://www.atariage.com/forums/index.php?s...118448&st=0 Enjoy the listen.
