...the result was two files written to my disk--"Z/SYNTH" and "C/SYNTH". Is one of these files supposed to be the compiled executable or is the original file (SYNTH) now compiled so that it should run faster?
I ask because both Z/SYNTH and C/SYNTH cause the Commodore to hang...
I found Digimaster on NoGames64 (http://www.haddewig.de/nogames64/)--I can't get it to work though...
What puzzles me though is that I never actually told the SID to play any tune. I just continuously change the volume of the SID and that in itself creates this sound. Is this a bug in the SID? If so, lucky for us, otherwise playing samples using this technique wouldn't be possible
That is not the Digimaster from Autumn Technologies.
I got a real kick out of your game!--It is very similar to a game I started making when I was in High School...
You could also insult them by pressing F1-F4 ... which would result in them cursing you even more!
I'm going to try "Blitzing" it tonight to see what kind of speed difference there is...
I don't know of any links to Digimaster. I don't even know if Chris has released it as shareware or to the public domain, since it was a commercial product back in the 90's. However, I think I have a phone number and address for him (it was so long ago that I visited him). I can try to contact him.
All this talk about playing digital samples made me get out Autumn Technologies' Digimaster for the Commodore 64.(snip)The package advertises -Using an optional audio digitizer, live sound can be grabbed into the computer, edited, and then saved to disk. (snip)Well, the optional audio digitizer was never produced by Chris, but he did include a schematic so you could build your own. In fact, a company in Texas did build those digitizers for $30 each (o.k., where did I put mine?).
...I just got off the phone with him, and he has agreed to release Digimaster as donationware (while retaining copyright of the program).
Please post links when/if available!
Named the "Audio Sampler" for Digimaster, SRE Services out of Harlingen, Texas produced these homemade-looking devices.
...I sent an e-mail to Jerry Sears of SRE Services in Harlingen. No response.
...Dick Estel volunteered to .pdf the manual and addendum.
