Here's a little more detail from the author of the Philips MSX Music Module ROM. ---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Tue, 17 Sep 2002 10:30:16 +0100 From: David Baker To: Richard Atkinson Cc: Lyndsay Williams Subject: RE: Pictures of sound hardware Richard I wrote the applications for the MSX module, a long time ago I had just left university. It was my first real job after writing (unsucessful) computer games for a while. The commoodore module software was written by a copule of guys called Mark Palmer and Chris Maciejewski.

I'm doing some research into the Commodore SFX Sound Expander and the Philips Music Module, both designed by Richard Watts Associates, and I'm wondering who designed the software for these units. The Commodore unit has no built-in ROM but two applications are available for it on disk. Some years ago a German colleague and I found a hidden program (Easter Egg) on one of the disks, referring to "Sister H" and "Hedgehogs". See http://www.funet.fi/pub/cbm/demodisks/c64/sfx/ The Philips unit has a built-in 32K ROM which makes good use of the more advanced capabilities of that device - namely MIDI and sound sampling. Do you know who was involved in designing either of these utilities? Many thanks, Richard Atkinson Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
