ATARI POKEY 8-bit Computer Sound on PIC32

April 20, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Background information:

I successfully compiled the ASAP (Another Slight Atari Player) library [1] for a PIC32MX795F512H. ASAP emulates a 6502 CPU and the famous POKEY sound chip [2] used for example in the ATARI 400/800 and XL/XE 8-bit computers. To say it with Wikipedia’s words: POKEY’s sound is distinctive :)

About 60 tunes (worth about 2.5 hours of music) taken from ASMA (Atari SAP Music Archive) [3] are included and stored in the PICs flash memory. D0 is the left and D1 the right PWM channel.

The source code is available here: http://dangerousprototypes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=3944
