24.10.2003 - Next amazing landmark !!!
P0ke coded something NEW! Something really NEW! You thought, that possibilities of Speccy was pumped out? You were wrong! What a mistake! What a error! NOW you can hear Speccy to play music from Atari ST (.YM) with sounds of SID! You don't believe ? You can try DigiSID from P0ke and you will believe! It's demo, which shows capabilities of his new "re-player" for Speccy. Full source codes and whole player will be available at start of 2004. Check it out!
Now some technical info:
Optimal machine (for best sound quality):
- ZX 128, +2, +2a, +3.
Optimal emulator(for best sound quality):
- SPIN, SPECTACULATOR, KLIVE.
DigiSID sound routine need absolute frequency precision for:
Z80,AY and ULA. If this options isn't filled, sound is poor and maybe
border line is moving in frame.
Sorry Pentagon and Scorpion users. You haven't original
Speccy128. You haven't correct ULA and AY timing.
Original ZX128 parameters which must be filled:
Main ZX Frequency = 35.4690Mhz (or 2*17.734475Mhz for ZX128)
ULA128 Frame profile: 311 * 228T
(70908T per Frame)
CPU clock frequency = Main ZX Frequency / 10
(3.54690 Mhz generate from Main ZX Frequency xtal)
AY clock frequency = Main ZX Frequency / 20
(1.77345 Mhz generate from Main ZX Frequency
