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

 

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. The sound code works with Firefox and Google Chrome. It might also work with other browsers now that I'm using different sound code.

 

 

 

How to Use This Page

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.

 

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.

 

Warning: Again, if you'd like to avoid a heart attack or damaged hearing, start with your volume turned down, then turn it up until it sounds right.

 

 

 

For Those Who Are Interested

A few people have been curious over the years about how this page was made. For those who want to know, I used free JavaScript sound code and the frequency information from Eckhard Stolberg.

 

The keyboard images on this page were made from a photo I took of a little old keyboard I have. For the sounds, I loaded Tone Toy 2008 into my Atari 2600 using the Harmony Cartridge, played each of the real Atari 2600 sounds while recording the session using a DVD recorder, put the DVD into my computer, then made a .wav file for each of the 319 sounds. If I remember correctly, it took a fairly long time to make all of those .wav files.

In Case You Didn't Know

 

B Vitamins = Good

Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I've been taking #ad Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.

 

 

Soy = Bad

Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn't bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can't tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.

 

 

Wheat = Bad

If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by William Davis and Ivor Cummins. It seems that most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: #ad Undoctored, #ad Wheat Belly, and #ad Eat Rich, Live Long.

 

 

Negative Ions = Good

Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.

 

 

Litterbugs = Bad

Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground. Also remember that good people clean up after themselves at home, out in public, at a campsite and so on. Leave it better than you found it.

 

 

Climate Change Cash Grab = Bad

Seems like more people than ever finally care about water, land, and air pollution, but the climate change cash grab scam is designed to put more of your money into the bank accounts of greedy politicians. Those power-hungry schemers try to trick us with bad data and lies about overpopulation while pretending to be caring do-gooders. Trying to eliminate pollution is a good thing, but the carbon footprint of the average law-abiding human right now is actually making the planet greener instead of killing it.

 

Watch these two YouTube videos for more information:

CO2 is Greening The Earth

The Climate Agenda

 

 

Hýdrø╳ýçhlørøqúîñé = Good

Take a look at my page called The H Word and Beyond. You might also want to look at my page called Zinc and Quercetin. My sister and I started taking those two supplements near the end of 2020 in the hopes that they would scare away the flu and other viruses.
