Ample DCT files

Post by pau1ie » Sun Oct 14, 2018 7:47 pm

I have some files which were downloaded from Ample DCT.
Ample DCT is a Music 500/5000 viewdatabase (similar in style to
PRESTEL), and can be called anytime on (0348) 239944. A library of
worksheets, and music telesoftware and other facilities are all offered
FREE of charge.
This transcribed from a dot matrix printed sheet. Turns out OCR is rubbish with dot matrix text. I have checked it carefully so hope it is OK. I can upload the scanned images if anyone wants to double check.

First up are a couple of worksheets about composition on the Music 5000. I don't have sheet 2, this contains 1 and 3.

This one looks like a screen print of a page from the Ample DCT bulletin board. It's short, so I just pasted it below.

Code: Select all

  AMPLE DCT              D6.T.37b     0p
 ***************************************
 Add the following NUCLEUS words:
"var" [ GVAR ]
"wait" [ REP(QTIME -200 £< )UNTIL(IDLE
)REP ON var £! ]
       % Change -200 to suit
"next" [ REP(var £?)UNTIL(IDLE)REP

 At the end of the RUN word, add:
next $2 """jukebo""LOAD RUN"

 ...where jukebox is the file you want
 to chain. (Change this to whatever
 file you want.)

 At the beginning of the music, insert:
OFF var £!

 At the end of the last music part, add:
wait
