I recently received a very generous gift of a group of 8 inch CDOS floppies.  A number of them are original Cromemco labeled and serial numbered.  On one of the disks, I discovered a program called that introduces itself as the subject states.  In addition, there are a number of files with a “mus” extension.  The mus files are clearly in a binary format.  The program plays a specified mus file out of JS-1 speakers attached to a D+7A.  It appears to play six voices, three from each joystick.  There does not appear to be a composer program on the disk.  I have done many web searches but I haven’t turned up anything.  I have also gone through my own collection of original Cromemco paper documentation.  Has anyone else heard of this?  Other “hints”:


After the title, it prints:


Welcome to the wonderful world of COMPUTER MUSIC


Then it asks:


Do you want to change the starting parameters?




How many repetitions?


Once it finishes, it asks:


Play it again, Sam?


Any hints greatly appreciated,


Bill Sudbirnk

I have seen a composer program somewhere - but for another machine. I wonder if it is the same program but written for a different machine?

I will have a look and report back...
