Creating a cassette for Atari with a Mac

I've been writing a program using Atari800MacX, but I'd like to do something that I don't think I've heard of before.

 

I'd like to create a WAV file that I can output through the audio jacks to a cassette recorder, then load the tape into my physical Atari 400 with its cassette drive.

 

Am I missing something obvious? I can read .WAV files as an emulated cassette, but how do I create one?

Check this thread; it should have pretty much everything you need to know.

 

The tricky part is going to be getting the output level to the cassette correct. Too loud or too quiet and the tape won't load.

There is another way of doing that.

 

If the emulator supports the virtual H: device, then save your program to the H: device. If it is ATARI BASIC, then SAVE"H:PROGRAM.BAS". If your program is a binary load file, then copy it to the H: device using any DOS.

Then use Turgen System (this program runs also on Mac, you just have to install Java) and its Standard plugin to create .WAV file or output audio directly to the sound card.
