Introduction: I bought my ATARI 2600 (4 Switches) in the year 2003 on an international auction for 30 dollars. At this time I was obsessed with getting all the 8 bit music systems possible, Commodores, Ataris, Nintendos, FM Chips… Without paying too much attention I bought the unit thinking that it was a NTSC system, so I bought the only game I was ever need, SYNTHCART… This music game or software was mad
1. INTRODUCTION The Synthcart is a cartridge for the Atari 2600 that turns the Atari into a musical instrument. The 2600 can produce some great sounds, and the Synthcart is designed to take full advantage of all the sound features. The Atari is limited in that it cannot produce many pitches that are in tune and it only has two oscillators. However, the Synthcart is programmed with useable scales and intelligent voice
