Jamesapp Posted September 16, 2022 Share Posted September 16, 2022 Hello, i recently got into 8 bit music. Ive been using my ti 99/4a to fool around. im trying to read and study. i have some questions if there is anyone with some knowledge. im not a purist. Im im just starting. i have a project in mind and wanted to run it by you guys and then i have more basic questions? i was thinking of building a custom pkayer with my hardware being 4 ay—8910 chips. Doesent have to be the ay-3-8910. But i wanted 4 to have access to more voices for polyphony. Im into boroque type music a lot based on counterpoint. i was going to order a kit with a bread board some things. But essentially an arduino to act as a clock amd micropocessor to control and interract with my programmable sound generator chips. its kind of a dream but i thought of getting a sd card readrr. Ive seen one for an arduino. but i would eventually house it. id orobally have some communication port possible usb. battery? Sound in out. Sd card slot on side of envlosure light on indicator something like that. I even thought of having a small display to view files on sd card maybe some communication with computer. But just some ideas. but one of my questions. I want to buy four chips. But can that be done? If i use an arduino? Do i need 4. I want to be practical maybe one is enough? I read some arcade games would have 3 or 4. i couldnt find an article explaining someone who has done this? ill await a reply. I have some basic programmable sound generator chip questions. Can anyone give me some help advice info. Like i said i have some basic questions. i really want to buy the chips first and go from there. So i kind of want to see whats practical possible.
