AVG Cartridge for 8bit Atari + PDM Audio Player Video

AVG Cartridge for 8bit Atari

First of all i have to thank Filippo Santellocco (Philsan) for this unexpected gift that i really appreciate.

AVGCART – SD multicart for 8bit Atari features:

  • Supports CAR files up to 1MB (most bankswitching types are implemented)
  • Supports XEX files.
  • Supports ATR files (read/write) – support is limited due to cartridge port constraints.
  • SIDE emulation (works with U1MB and SpartaDOS X)
  • Firmware is upgradeable via SD card.

Keyboard reference:

  • arrows to navigate the list, with CTRL jump to beginning/end of page/list
  • BACKSPACE for parent dir
  • ENTER and letters choose item
  • TAB to select multiple ATR files (right cart button to cycle them afterwards)
  • ESC disables cart and resets Atari
  • / for recursive search, use ESC to return to full navigation
  • SHIFT-S enables SIDE CCTL registers and resets

Use left cart button to return to file selector (after reset), right cart button resets current cart’s bank (also cycles ATR files)

Titles of the songs in the video:

  • AC/DC – Back in Black
  • Narada Michael Walden – Tonight I’m Alright
  • Kungs & Cookin’ On 3 Burners – This Girl
  • Sucker Punch (Dubstep Remix)

The songs are complete from beginning to end but for reasons of length of the video i have cut the songs.

The video can be only downloaded, because Youtube and Facebook have blocked the video streaming for copyrighted content, really ridiculous as the audio tracks are not complete and certainly not faithful to the original.

My personal note; the only two home computers that i follow with passion are Commodore & Atari.

…have a good listening

SNDH Atari ST YM2149 Archive v4.7 released.

January 7th, 2018 No comments

SNDH archive v4.7 released – 323 new/updated SNDH files (1209 subtunes) – (total 10238 tunes)

Ever since the birth of the Atari ST, different chip music formats have had different ways to use them. If you are coding a chip music player for the Atari ST you would have to use dozens and dozens of special ways to replay music.

But in the mid 90′s, BDC of Aura crew became tired of this inelegant system and decided to fix the issue once and for all. He then created the ‘SNDH’ file format. SNDH is actually the original songfile and replaycode with a header bolted on top of the music and replayer. The header has a unified calling interface no matter what type of chip music is hidden beneath it, and it has extended datas about the music.
