Yes, the f=base_frequency/x is so inaccurate with x being from 1 to 128 or something like that. With higher frequencies (small values of x), the error gets bigger, because 1/x and 1/(x+1) would be further apart than with low frequencies (big values of x). On the SID, choosing frequencies is much easier, because you would specify a 16-bit multiplier of a base frequency, not a divider. IIRC, the TED uses the VIC-I divider principle as well, but the divider is wider than 7 bits (16 bits?). >Then we have the PAL vs NTSC issues too.. some songs might sound great >in one key with PAL frequencies but awful with corresponding NTSC >frequencies (and even worse if replayed with PAL frequencies on a NTSC >VIC-20). Exactly, it is very hard to produce good-sounding music on the VIC-I. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2011-12-29 13:00:17
