Quote from: MiguelSky on 13:00, 26 March 21I got some trouble in making the card pronounce correctly stressed syllables in Spanish as it uses a predictive way of pronunciation quite accurate but not for all words as you can type the accented vowels in CPC. I sorted this issue by using double vowel or hyphens, depending on the word structure. Just in case someone else bump into the same problem.
Quote from: XeNoMoRPH on 12:07, 14 April 21Eeeeeeh, update firmware for my powerful LS3?
Quote from: GUNHED on 01:17, 15 April 21Simple Terminal program for LSF, see LSF DSK 2 in my downloads, or here:
Quote from: GUNHED on 14:48, 22 April 21Yes, or have a kind of 'converter' maybe?
Quote from: VintageAdvantage on 18:15, 22 April 21Well, the converter would be a full-blown "MID" file player. Something that can just play back the standard MID files from the CPC and stream out the MIDI.
Quote from: VintageAdvantage on 18:15, 22 April 21Here it is a bit simpler - the MID file is played by the PC and output as MIDI messages into the CPC via the USB -> MIDI PC Interface. The CPC would only have to record these (with timestamp information) into memory and play them back from there. A kind of "real time sequencer". I think this is easier to implement on the CPC than a full-blown MID player. But you are the expert, you will see when you get to it Or there could be a PC Program (e.g., in Python) that writes out a CPC Assembler Program for a song. I believe this is what Arkos Tracker does (not sure it can write MIDI CPC Songs though). Python has lots of libraries for dealing and parsing MID files.
Quote from: GUNHED on 18:23, 22 April 21Yes, that's what we need.The question is: How much memory would this effort take up?
Quote from: RetroCPC on 05:44, 23 April 21The Music Machine's great as it has an ADC - if we where to recreate one we could use a modern 16b Audio ADC and dither down to 8bits with a small FPGA...
Quote from: GUNHED on 03:08, 23 April 21Would a 'record' of the 45 KB MID file (with timestamps) be smaller?
Quote from: VintageAdvantage on 09:03, 23 April 21Our MIDI AY CPC demo program uses all 3 AY voices (plus 3 more with Speak&SID from the SID chip... work in progress)
Quote from: GUNHED on 21:59, 23 April 21Actually it would be great if the 6 voices of the PlayCity can be added too. It's very easy to use them. Just like the AY, but write data direct (not via PIO). Maybe an idea to think about?
