Hi Paul,
since the list has been very quiet during the last weeks, I think at
least I should give you some feedback.

I've just tried your program with z26 on my PC (who has a somewhat
"problematic" soundcard).

Still, (after finding out how to set the sounds for both channels :-),
I could produce some quite surprising nice sounds (well, I won't compare
them with your cool AtariAge mp3 demos). I'm very sure, that with a real
2600, it would sound even better.

I still don't know, how to change any values of the lower part of the
display. (NYI?)

BTW: What happened to Kevin Hortons idea of 6 channel music?

Have fun!
