SAM Coupé song replayer library =============================== Background: The SAM Coupé is an 8-bit British home computer that was first released in late 1989. It is commonly considered a clone of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum computer, since it features a compatible screen mode and emulated compatibility, and it was marketed as a logical upgrade from the Spectrum. Six channel, 8 octave stereo sound is provided by a Philips SAA 1099 chip. Purpose: The purpose of this library is to replay SAM Coupé song files (these generally have the extension .sng or .cop). This is achieved by the use of a Z80 CPU emulator coupled to a SAA1099 audio chip emulator, with some RAM thrown in. The Z80 replayer routine is either included with the song files, or the E-Tracker replayer is used (this is stored in the library itself). It is intended that this library is used to develop input plugins for multi-format media players. However, a simple SDL test player (scplay) is included for reference and to test playback. Installation: Please refer to INSTALL. The command line player 'scplay' is built only if SDL is detected. Usage: For the command-line player (if installed and in the path), simply: scplay <filename> For use of the replayer library in your own projects, you will need the header file "SCPlayer.h" and the libscplayer library file itself. If you have installed the package, these should be available in PREFIX/include and PREFIX/lib. Please refer to the source code scplay.cpp for an example usage of this library. 1. Include "SCPlayer.h" 2. Create a SCPlayer object (named player for the purpose of these directions). 3. player.load(<filename>) 4. player.init(<Mixer frequency>) 5. Call player.generate(<pointer to buffer>, <length in bytes>) to generate audio samples. 6. Link with libscplayer.
