Ayep. What TED really lacks is low frequencies (bass). I remember the lowest frequency one can obtain without special tricks would be A1, 110 Hz or so? The lowest voice in VIC certainly hits lower notes than that. I'm a bit surprised if there are no decent TED music editors, considering that there even are Plus/4 versions of at least one and maybe more SID music editors, for those with a SID add-on card. It reminds me, on Funet (now: Zimmers) there used to be a game of Battleships for the 24K expanded VIC-20. This game had a two player mode using modems, but what is more interesting are the docs mentioned that the game supported a SID chip at I/O space I currently can't remember, but look up. I have mentioned this from time to time, but nowhere else have I heard about anyone interfacing SID to VIC-20, although I'm sure it is technically perfectly possible and maybe quite "easy" to do? Since this list is a bit techie, has anyone done this or have any comments about it? -- Anders Carlsson Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
