PET music (Was: hmm, don't remember what the thread was originally :)

Not sure what you're looking for here, hardware or software? Seems to me any S/W not
using CB2 would require _some_ kind of special hardware, however trivial.

At least 2 come to mind, the Petunia, and the MTU 4 voice/16 harmonics systems for
both PETs and KIM/SYM/AIMs; is one of these what you're thinking of?

The cheap & dirty method was just a resistor ladder across the parallel interface as a
D/A converter; might still have one of these & some S/W, but don't hold your breath,
haven't looked at the CBM pile in ages.

Hmmm... just ran across an old ad for an accounting package for a KIM/SYM; wouldn't you
have enjoyed being the data entry operator for that? Think I'd prefer even a Windows

ObClassic: Does anyone have any software for making music on the PET
with *other* than CB2 sound? I had a buddy with a clip-on user port
music card - it was an 8-bit D-to-A like a Disney Sound Source. The
PET shoved bytes out the user port and they appoximated music. I can't
remember what it was called.
