Hi All, and thanks for the various bits of information.... I have added a zip of some of the tools necessary and a D64 image of the "simple" player and three examples at this link.... http://pages.hotbot.com/family/coplin/images/cdv-play.zip The player is very simple, and works best with the old C64 with the different volume/filter setup (sorry Richard, didn't have time to experiment with the tricks you mentioned - do you have specific values?) Also the files do not use any compression and are simple 4bit lo/hi... something to do in a later version perhaps. Cheers, Nick PS: Someone mentioned the RAW format (there is a player for GEOS too!) is this also a 4bit lo/hi digital format? > -----Original Message----- > From: Richard Atkinson [SMTP:email@example.com] > Sent: Thursday, 18 May 2000 17:14 > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Subject: RE: Converting/Playing WAV files > > On Thu, 18 May 2000, Marko Mäkelä wrote: > > > Yep, basically you use the master volume register (the low nybble of > > $d418) as a 4-bit D/A converter.
