Composition and Playback of AY music The Great Unknown

Post by robpearmain » Sun Jan 07, 2018 5:45 pm

Hi

I have never been able to quite understand how to compose AY music on the Spectrum

Can anyone recommend how to compose music on for the next and any code to play back the files in Z80

Also, any tips on sound fx composition would be good

Thanks

The New Year demo with source on specnext.com has a tracker playback example:

Gari Basillo is developing a tracker that will work on the machine itself but, I have not seen an update in a while.

he is concentrating on other parts of the work looking at this from December:

I understand that Vortex tracker is popular for off machine development:

That is all I know about MUSIC on anything...
