The bB Music and Sound Data Creation Toy

Play real Atari 2600 sounds and create data for your bB programs.

Page Table of Contents

This page was made to help batari Basic users find the right note or sound and get the data as quickly and easily as possible for their bB programs. If you haven't tried it yet, check out the Visual batari Basic Music and Sound Editor. It was based on this page, but it has more features and it's faster, easier, and more fun to use. (I deleted this page for a while, but there are people who can't use Visual batari Basic, so I brought this page back in case it might be helpful.) The sound code works with Firefox and Google Chrome. It might also work with other browsers now that I'm using different sound code.

 

Warning: To avoid a heart attack or damaged hearing, start with your volume turned down, then turn it up until it sounds right.

 

Move your mouse pointer over the numbered keys on the keyboard images or the numbers under All Sounds and you will hear the corresponding sounds that were recorded from a real Atari 2600 using Tone Toy 2008. Speaking of that Atari 2600 program, if you like playing around with the sounds on this page, you might also like Tone Toy 2008.

 

Left clicking will place the data for that sound in the data box near the bottom of this page. When you are done, jump down to the data box, click the button below the box to highlight the data, copy it, then paste it into the data area in a copy of the Music Starter using sdata bB program (or a similar program). Then you can make adjustments to the duration for each sound and so on. Remember, the data you get from this page is just a skeleton for you to build on. If you want to clear the data box, just refresh/reload the page.
