+Random Terrain Posted March 28, 2008 Share Posted March 28, 2008 (edited) This is a program that lets you play with sounds and sound effects using loops. It can simply be used as a toy or you can use it to think up possible new sound effects for your games. For those who don't want to read the instructions on the Tone Toy 2008 page, remember that you can hold down the fire button to slow it down. youtube.com/watch?v=Zco1hnyDiVI The link below has basic instructions, screen shots, and a demo video: randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-program-tone-toy-2008.html Super-duper extra special thanks to SeaGtGruff. Special thanks to Atarius Maximus, Fort Apocalypse, MausGames, and batari. [A big thanks to jwierer for making VbB (the new bB IDE). I couldn't have gotten anything done without it.] Note: Tone Toy 2008 is not in the public domain. It is free to use at this time, but please do not sell it or include it with collections of other software. 2019 Version of Tone Toy 2008 Here's the .bin file to use with your favorite emulator: tone_toy_2008_2019y_12m_28d_2247t.bin Here's the .bas file if you want to look at the code: tone_toy_2008_2019y_12m_28d_2247t.bas I updated the code and added the ability to switch to hexadecimal (press the select switch). Old Version of Tone Toy 2008 Here's the .bin file to use with your favorite emulator: tone_toy_2008_2008y_03m_25d_1828.bin Here's the .bas file if you want to look at the code: tone_toy_2008_2008y_03m_25d_1828.bas [i was going to make the video using my Atari 2600 with S-Video and Stereo output modification, but it looks like the TIA chip is faulty, so the channel 1 sound is messed up. I guess I spent over $100 on an electronic paperweight. I decided to try the free screen recording software called CamStudio again. I never could get it to record clean sound. There was always a nasty buzzing. I Googled for info and fiddled around with my sound settings for 3 days and I eventually figured out how to get the line-out/line-in trick to work on my computer. Now CamStudio can record sound without the loud buzzing, so any Atari 2600 videos I make from now on will be done using Stella and CamStudio.] Update: I now use Bandicam for capturing video from Stella. Remember that you can also create sound effects and music using the VbB Music and Sound Editor.
