If it’s only emulated, will it only give you a virtual headache?

The next meeting of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club takes place on Wednesday, 4th May, and the topic of the meeting will be sound emulation, with a presentation on the subject to be given by Ian Stanley.

Ian will have with him an ARM-powered Robertsonics/SparkFun WAV Trigger board, which can play and mix multiple uncompressed 16-bit stereo WAV files, up to 16-bit stereo 44.1kHz – the same quality as found on audio CDs.  Ian will be discussing how to write a driver program for it on the Raspberry Pi using Doctor Wimp. As well as this, he will also be using “another platform” (ahem!) to demonstrate a Moog synthesizer emulation.

So if you are in the vicinity of Wakefield on Wednesday evening, the meeting takes place from 7:45pm at:

West Yorkshire Sports and Social Club,
Sandal Hall Close, off Walton Lane,
(A61) Barnsley Road,
Sandal,
Wakefield,
WF2 6ER.

Entry to the meeting is £3.00 for visitors, but free for group members. With annual membership costing the equivalent of the entry fee for five meetings, stumping up the £15.00 to join is particularly good value for those in the locality – especially in the first year, when it is discounted to two and a half meetings, or £7.50.

Membership is also open to those living further afield, and although attending meetings is less practical, other benefits of membership include a free PDF newsletter delivered by email (or printed and posted for a supplement of £7.00 per year), for sale/wanted adverts on the website and in the newsletter, and access to the WROCC discussion forum.

Future meetings

  • 6th July: details TBA
  • 3rd August: details TBA
