Equal Temperament on the Atari 2600

Equal Temperament on the Atari 2600

Postby Atari Music Network » Sat Dec 19, 2009 7:53 pm

Here's a well needed implementation for getting more musicality out of an Atari 2600 game system - equal temperament (or close to at least!) Unless your using the 2600 for sound FX and 4-bit drum lines, it's pretty useless for making straight out music.



There is also a related Atari 2600 Music And Sound Programming Guide here: http://www.qotile.net/files/2600_music_guide.txt

Hopefully, the author can shed more light on how everyone can do this. Perhaps someone can perfect the codes for perfect equal temperament?
