atari disk in pc

Discussion in 'Recording' started by IRON BENDER, Dec 23, 2005.



    just for example if someone programs his songs using ATARI and saves it on a disk.
    could it be used on a pc with cubase sx or REASON?
    if yes then whats the method because i have tried in vain.

    Atari 520 and 1040st ??
    ... that will test my memory banks.

    format the floppy on a PC and I think the Atari can talk to it ... needs to be a 520K format ... wow ... I think that was it

    the save midi file as song.mid

    format 0 or 1 midi will probably be read by Reason or any of the late model sequencers, PT, Cubase etc

    not sure how much of the Patch info will come across intact so do take manual notes of this sort of stuff while you have the song open on the Atari

    I have a couple of 3.5" floppies lying around just for that. You can use them if they're formatted as 720 on a PC (DS DD). HD floppies won´t work.

    stupid Kev !

    that should'a been 720k

    I think the other matter can be fixed with some tape over the HD trigger

    I think he meant the ATARI 2600 Gameing consol system.
