IFF/SND files

IFF/SND files
From: DGANTZ To: BOISY

Is there any way you or your fellow MM/1’ers could come up with a CoCo II/III
player for the MM/1 IFF/SND sound files? I, as well as many CoCo users, fell
left out because we simply cannot afford MM/1’s or any major upgrades in
hardware.
Thanx
Dave

PS. If the answer is yes, it would be nice if there was a RSDos version
as well as OS9.

    Sorry you feel left out, but I left the CoCo a while back. If you want
    the software, you should really consider upgrading to an OSK machine.

    There’s a new OSK machine that is really affordable now, BTW. It’s
    from Wittman Computer Products, based on a 68306 and has an IDE
    interface, floppy interface, 4 PC ISA slots, and is only $400. All
    you need to add is a case and power supply, a floppy drive and a
    hard drive. You can then add a graphics card in one of the PC slots to
    run an OS-9 windowing system.

    Bill Wittman’s address is WW2150 [at] ACSPR1 [dot] acs [dot] brockport [dot] edu

    I suggest an MM/1, but if cost is really a factor, this might be a good
    entry level OSK machine.

    If you really want to play IFF/SND files on the CoCo, it can be done with
    the “Play” command here in this database. I have successfully played both types
    of
    files with it. However, it does require that you set the type and sampling rate
    of the file or it will error out. With a little luck and patience, it will work.

    P.S., I just transfered a sound file from Doom on my PC over to my CoCo! It
    sounds as good on the CoCo as it does with the Sound Blaster!

    Let me see if I understand Mark. Are you saying that the IFF and SND sound
    files follow the
