Jam out on your Atari! JAM_OUT.bin Gameplay Use the Joystick to create musical compositions on your Atari! Composition Controls Joystick - You control a Tracker/sequencer which contains predefined chiptunes and patterns. The 8 directions on the joystick each trigger an initial pattern that will continue to play additional notes if you allow it. Holding the joystick in a direction will repeat the initial pattern, and you can switch the pattern/direction any time during play. Perhaps the most interesting feature, the button increments the master tempo (loops from 0-11) which affects not just the tempo but also controls what Atari instruments are created. Playback Controls Select - Play back composition Reset - Clear memory Your composition is automatically recorded and can be quite long - the screen will turn RED when memory is full, and violet when playing back a composition (no input is accepted during playback). Here is a composition where you can hear drums and bass guitar carrying a fast beat with a Lute and xylaphone performing the slow haunting melody, and cymbals and other interesting sounds and effects: Haunting Melody composed with JAM OUT on the VCS.zip What can you create? JAM OUT is written in BASIC and easy to modify - I will post the source code on the programming thread so anyone who wishes can change the default patterns in the Tracker to create other instruments and sequences to jam with!
I finally got around to hooking my ST up to this old CASIO digital piano. The mount was made of scrap parts (brackets were from a rack mount network switch at the back, steel rod from a laser printer at the front), and slots in place of the music stand. It passed the cat stability tests too. MIDI cables are the high grade audiophile ones with ferrite beads (also known as ones that I soldered up from scrap DVI cables and cut down 8 pin DIN plugs).
