Video 1

Comprehensive French sound program/utility from 1990.
This video is a "Look & See" tour round the various menus.
Check out that marvellous loading screen!
With individual music and sample files approaching 40K in size the best option is to use
a two-drive CPC with the program in drive A and the music and sample files in drive B.

A little background - this was a type-in in 6 issues of the French "AMSTAR" later "CPC"  magazine and is enormous (320K of program & data files!) - so page after page after
page of lovely DATA statements........
..........have a look at the link to Amstar issue 45 below and you'll see what I mean.

The program itself gets 10/10 for presentation, its easily of commercial quality, and in Video 2 (the demo) you will be able to judge the audio yourself.

"Program : Fabien Fessard alias Fefesse
Graphics : Stephane Saint-Martin

The software includes:
- A digitizer
- A sequencer (from digitized sounds)
- A vocal synthesizer ( digital sounds)
- A musical synthesizer (digital sounds)
- A vumeter (animations and digitized sounds at the same time)
- A utility to rework the sounds cut, collage, inversion, etc...)"

The music and sounds made with MEGASOUND can be executed independently of the software and can therefore be used under BASIC or ASSEMBLER.
With the (soft) extensions of MEGASOUND it is possible:
- to listen a digital music and to test events at the same time (key for ex.)
- to make musics of 1 Hour with the MUSICAL SYNTHE
- to make musics of 20 mn with the SEQUENCER"
