ASAP - Another Slight Atari Player
ASAP is a player/converter of Atari 8-bit music for modern computers.
It provides high-quality, identical to the popular Atari800 emulator,
emulation of the POKEY sound chip and the 6502 processor.
This release includes the following programs that use the ASAP engine:
* ASAP2WAV - portable command-line utility that generates WAV files
* WASAP - tiny player for Windows
* plugin for foobar2000 0.8
* plugin for Winamp
* plugin for XMMS
Currently supported input formats are:
* SAP (Slight Atari Player - standard file format for playing Atari 8-bit
music on modern computers, samples are not supported yet)
* CMC (Chaos Music Composer)
* CMR (CMC Rzog - CMC with modified bass sounds)
* DMC (DoublePlay CMC - CMC with 6502 routines executed at double rate
of the original CMC)
* MPT (Music ProTracker - without samples)
* MPD (MPT DoublePlay - MPT with 6502 routines executed at double rate
of the original MPT)
* RMT (Raster Music Tracker)
* TMC (Theta Music Composer 1.x - 4-channel music)
* TM8 (Theta Music Composer 1.x - 8-channel music)
* TM2 (Theta Music Composer 2.x)
The biggest collection of SAP files is ASMA (Atari SAP Music Archive,
http://asma.atari.org). It is strongly recommended that you use ASMA 3.0
or newer. 226 files in ASMA 3.0 contain samples, the remaining 1780 can be
used with the current version of ASAP.
