Switched on POKEY - S.O.P. Track 6 - Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring


Recommended Posts

Looking forward to seeing what's under the tree, so until then……..

Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring has been in the archives for quite some time. I don't believe there is anyway to track down the origins of this MIDI MUSIC SYSTEM file. Who ever is responsible, I would like to express my gratitude. Although, I didn't use the file as is.

The music seemed to be duplicated and the midi controls were changed for different MIDI equipment. These extra voices were deleted. The music repeated twice so a repeat loop was set up and the duplicated music deleted. There were some timing changes that made the music flow a little smoother. And because I was recording multiple tracks a Voice was created to contain the Tempo changes.

The file size was reduced from 61 sectors to 19 sectors.

The MMS file used 5 voices. Voice 1 and 5 (highest and lowest notes) were played on the Atari. Voices 2, 3, and 4 were assigned the organ sound on the MIDIPLUS miniEngine.
