Well, you probably have it at github for everybody, like I know you... let me see...

Yes, here everybody can built one by himself:

And now back to topic...  :)

It's funny how different the different retro communities are.

Speakjet-based expansions were (are!) a huge hit on the Atari VCS for example:

But nobody in the CPC community likes the Speakjet, eventhough it is a very cool and capable little chip!

Bach - the music for real coders & hackers  8) Now if somebody made a MIDI IN realtime recorder (not a full-blown MIDI sequencer)... we could turn these into standalone CPC music pieces. It should not be too difficult to write a MIDI event into the RAM, together with some timing information when it arrived to facilitate playback. How much RAM will be needed for such a Bach masterpiece? No idea.

You'll find Bach here:

Imagine the time pain and effort that poor man spent inputting all that sheet music into that clunky slow CPC editor program... but it sounds really good! The TRS 80 community also has a huge collection of transcribed sheet music, using the Orchestra 80 (84, 90) system. That was a textual "compiler-based" language though, not a graphical editor. Apparently, the collection is really huge. Some folks got really good at translating the sheet music into the Orchestra textual music specification language. That must have been a bit of effort too, but probably not as much as for the Advanced Music Studio. @ComSoft6128 do you know if the Advanced Music Studio allows for textual specification of music?

I rather just record the MIDI files that are already available into the CPC for playback - that's a bit less effort  ;)

I think this was a labour of love for him but yes think of the hours of input this entailed.


From the Music System manual:


"Three part musical compositions can be entered in two ways: through an extremely versatile Editor in written music format or via
the on-screen Keyboard emulator. In both cases the notes appear directly on the treble and bass staves and may be played, scrolled
, transposed and transformed using the fully comprehensive editing and composing facilities. Sounds may be created using the pop-up
synthesiser"


The full manual is available in the Wiki here:

Thanks @ComSoft6128 . Yes so it seems one has to use the graphical editor in some way.

Here is a link to the Orcestra 80's Music Specification Language I mentioned:

And Bach on the TRS-80:

Actually it sounds way better, it hat different voices (male, female), pitch, speed, volume and and and....

I have LlambdaSpeak3, is LambdaSpeak-FS a subset or a different set of features?

Can a similar speech chip like the TI 99/4a one be added somehow to the LambdaSpeak?
Well, the LS3 already has the SP0256 chip, which is pretty much similar to the one from TI99 (compared from the distance of the Click2Speech module. Also the LFS emulates the same chip.

I guess it comes down to reasonable use of speech within a game.


This to me seems pretty cool - on an intellivision, with the different human-like voices.

Actually, the very first speech is quite understandable, the game itself... well, if you know what it wants to tell, then it can be understood too.


And of course it's cool under some circumstances to have such a robot voice. The SP0256 (chip or emulation) would be great for a Frenzy clone at CPC.


For regular games though, I would prefer a better voice like the LFS has in Epson or DECtalk mode.
