  • Jeffrey Coney
Instrumentation And Software Report


This article describes a FORTRAN 77 subroutine which manipulates the audio hardware facilities on the Amiga microcomputer. The subroutine may be instructed to produce either tones or musical notes on any combination of four independent channels. Frequency, volume, and type of waveform are passed to the subroutine as parameters. Some limitations in relation to sound production on the Amiga are discussed.
