Atari Pokey sound emulator on a PIC32

Posted on Friday, April 20th, 2012 in dev boards, project logs by DP

Marcus got an Atari 6502 CPU and the POKEY sound chip emulator running on a PIC32 development board. He stored around 2.5 hours of old school 8bit music in the flash.

I successfully compiled the ASAP (Another Slight Atari Player) library [1] for a PIC32MX795F512H. ASAP emulates a 6502 CPU and the famous POKEY sound chip [2] used for example in the ATARI 400/800 and XL/XE 8-bit computers. To say it with Wikipedia’s words: POKEY’s sound is distinctive :)
