Handic Forth 64 User's Guide & Reference Manual Category: Software ManualsNov-29-2021

C64-FORTH is a fourth-generation programming language that in many respects is very different from other lanquages. In relation to its size, its power is unequalled. In just 8K, a typical minicomputer FORTH version supplies structured, compact and extremely fast code, virtual memory, a resident macro assembler and a resident editor, as well as multitasking capability. FORTH is even able to extend itself and its compiler. It is a metalanguage.

Creating Chiptunes with Sid Wizard Category: Software ManualsNov-06-2021

Welcome to this revised expanded manual for the excellent music tracker SID-Wizard2 for Commodore 64. I will try to go into detail of most aspects of the tracker and I will also try to explain the functions of the wonderful SID chip as we go along. The reason why I expanded the work of Mihaly's manual is that there is some stuff left out that SID gurus know but beginners don't.

This guide covers SID Wizard versions up to 1.6 and is still helpful with 1.7 & 1.8, but version 1.8 has many changes compared to 1.6.
