I know that the makewav utility used to do this, but is there a way to create wav files on a modern Windows PC of Atari .bin files so they can be used on an old Cuttle Cart/Supercharger?

May need to use DOSBox for them, generally DOS program just won't work under 64 bit Windows, and almost everything in the last 5 years are using 64 bits Windows.

There was a DOS program called BIN2WAV.EXE I used a zillion years ago. You'll definitely need to emulate the old environment. I personally would avoid the hassle and simply seek out the converted files instead. They're probably out there somewhere. Remember that not everything will work on the Supercharger.

I ripped the "Stella Gets a New Brain" CD back in 2011 to MP3.  You can download it by clicking here.

You can also do something else...

 

I used to use Winamp back in the day to do this. As you could select the output to be a .wav file and then simply try to open and play the .bin files. As I recall, this used to work but now that I have the harmony I've not tried it in many years.
