First Book of Atari Graphics (Page 73)


There's also one in the BASIC TurboCharger collection.


That TurboCharger has some amazing routines in there , wish I had seen this 30 years ago. Also solved my image loading query. Fantastic.Thanks again! BTW do you know of any digi sound play back ones for basic?

Hi, Did you manage to get round to this for me? :cool:


Sorry for the delay, I'm currently very busy. I've attached the "Sound'n'Sampler"-master disk.


(It's even missing at AtariMania: http://www.atarimania.com/utility-atari-400-800-xl-xe-sound-n-sampler_15982.html )


Load with a DOS to BASIC, then


to have a demo of a sample output with screen on.


The format of the samples is quite unusual even for the Atari. AFAIR they have only 2 bit depth - taking this into account the quality is quite good and the memory consumption very conservative.


Some demos made with the matching hardware:




...here with BASIC and screen on:



Have fun!

Not so great for extended play, as demonstrated (sounds like a badly tuned radio), but for short bursts it'd probably be fine.


Pretty cool for BASIC...


Yes, things like in the BASIC classic "Creepy Caverns"






should be possible too.
