Spotify client for an Atari

Recommended Posts

Well, that's pretty damn cool, assuming the audio is actually streaming from Spotify.  Not something I expected to see! 

 

Has a Twitter client been created yet?  :D

Cool!

 

Looks like this engine could be easily adapted to control and pull audio from satellite radio, AM/FM (SDR!) Or MP3s.

 

Next level is self-contained SIO dongles :)

Audio via SIO audio in pin which leads to the question why the poor quality?

Deliberately downsampled to make it look like the Atari is doing the decoding

Nope, quoting from the readme page on the github link:

 

While the program is running, it might look (or sound) like the Atari generates the audio, which was the whole point, but the audio only passes through the Atari from the device connected on the peripheral/SIO port, a port that also happens to have an audio in pin which we can use to connect an audio source to it. The audio then goes through the Atari and out to the RF modulator out to the analog TV.

That quote confirms it's done so to give the impression the Atari's doing the work.

 

Anyway, nice effort for such a novelty.

So, in short... is it fake or not? 😦
