Better than nothing! There is always Google translate and other online options - and most of all, even if the manual is german only, you get an overview off all available keys and key-combinations...

I'm particularly insterested in commands used on tracks (e.g. P=POKE, C=CALL, J=JUMP etc; I know number of them, but I'm looking of detailed description) and instrument editing description. Full documentation would be very pleasant to me however.

English version is preferred, but yes - German version is acceptable too.

 

Edit: All what I have is a short overview (in Polish only) at Atariki: http://atariki.krap....hp/SoundMachine. It's based on Sound Machine Demo and on article published in Polish magazine named Bajtek (it signals existence of a few commands only).

Found this at pigwa:

http://ftp.pigwa.net...und Machine.atr

it has some polish (?) instructions on the disk, attached them here. I doubt that these are the full instructions however...

 

There is also the soundmachine demo for download at pigwa (or at Fandal's webpage). Think AMC-Verlag made one or more Soundmachine demo disks and some of their games had music written with the Soundmachine by Armin Stuermer (not sure which ones, maybe Tales, Bilbo, Pyramidos, Jinks, Herbert, etc.)...

Thank you very much. It seems to be detail description of things I need :)

Thanks to voy we know INSTRUKC.JA is a BASIC program, not a text document.

 

Thanks again to Charlie and Voy!

Is there still demand for the German manual?

If so I could scan a pretty bad copy of it...

It would still be nice so we all have what is needed, and if you are so inclined mono, please share what sleepy has helped you with. I may help someone tomorrow or 5 years from now.

I proposed to Sleepy to put this manual to AtariOnline.pl public archive, but he said permission of Peter Finzel is required.

 

Edit: Maybe somebody who is in touch with Peter could ask him about permission?
