Can you listen to music on a TI-84+ SE?
« on: May 03, 2011, 10:44:54 pm »
Can you listen to music with headphones in the I/O port. If so how, and how do you loud the music on and play it?

yes, with trusound, calcwav, or various other programs, but you'll need an adapter, that takes the connector and puts out a headphones port. Not very loud, so you'll want something with an amplifier, and don't expect it to hold lots of songs. You either get quantity or quality.

Use Doors CS 7 and mobileTunes 3.2.  You can grab them respectively here and here:

It is possible and there are several programs that I cannot recall the names of that allow this. Usually the music is converted on the computer as programs that are just data files :)

Yes you can ;D You need an adapter (2.5->3.5mm) because normal headphones are too large. There are various programs, but I can't remember them off the top of my head :(

Kerm's only plays Midi files, if you want to play actual .wav files, you'll have to use my program TruSound.



Just be warned, the files are 22KB per second.

You can build a statue out of either 1'x1' blocks or 12'x12' blocks. The 1'x1' blocks will take a lot longer, but the final product is worth it.

Sorry, I didn't say that right. I had to get the post in quick though because I was getting ninja'd left and right.

Thanks for sticking up for me, willrandship. :) You get four channels of sound, and songs run at most about 1KB to 2KB per minute (that is, 60 seconds, so about 1200 times smaller than TruSound).

Revsoft has RealSound, which I'm biased towards.

But MobileTunes is good too.

Axe has some sound capabilities, and back in July or something there was a MIDI?Axe converter, so you could make a program with music in it.

RealSound I believe is the only program that has ever made me completely stop working on a long-term project. I had been trying to make my own sound program, (before TruSound), and I was doing pretty good with 1 bit sound. I eventually upgraded to about ugly 4 bit sound with the songs stored in 23 separate 64kb programs. The songs were OK, mostly about the quality where you would turn your radio to a different station and I was slowly making improvements over about a 6 months span.

But then I sent the RealSound demo to wabbitEmu. After hearing a nearly perfect, "It's a me, Mario." I don't think I ever opened music.z80 again.

I wonder if you could fit a basic TTS system on a calculator and have it sing to you...

(and now I'm remembering that time at programming camp when some guy, upset that the staff wouldn't let us play M-rated games, got a classroom full of iMacs to sing "we want Quake"... over and over, to the tune of Pomp and Circumstance.)

This just seems like a topic where everybody answers by posting their own product :P Since I have no actual music playing product, I'd just say TruSound looks cool and I have used MobileTunes too, but it was not so easy to convert midi to 8xp.

RealSound? Never tried it.
