ATARI SOUNDS FOR THE MASSES – GUI Frontend for ASAPConv Appears

Atari Sounds For The Masses is a GUI Frontend for great ASAPConv by Piotr Fusik. Basicly is a tool to convert Atari music modules between different formats. ASAPConv is a “command line” application, so I decided to add a GUI in Objective-C to make conversion procedure much more simpler. ASFTM is dedicated to all Mac OS X users who love to listen great tunes from the legendary 8bit computer called ATARI. Those people who didn`t know what I`m talking about, should download music stuff for “little” Atari, and take a deep dive into the analog, raw and melodic ocean of Atari sounds.

RIP Raster/C.P.U.

Extremely sad news from Pouet tonight:

Radek Št?rba aka Raster died on 28th July 2011 in a train accident. He was great man (I know people usually say that but I _really_ mean it) and good friend of mine. Always supportive and kind.He was also extremely talented, he made infamous Raster Tracker and loads of other Atari related stuff (games, demos, music,…) Rest in peace :(

More info about him and the accident can be found here

When I first got into chipmusic, the Atari Pokey chip was always a favorite of mine, and it is due in large part to his work on the wonderful Windows tracker. I only spoke to him a few times in asking about the application, but he was always kind and ready to answer questions and consider features. He may be gone, but hopefully his voice will live on in the songs and projects that come out of his wonderful programs. He will truly be missed, and TCTD extends its sincere condolences to his friends and family.
