This is a deceptively powerful program, which requires both Extended Basic and a minimal disc system - a controller and a single drive. It allows you to store or play a sequence of single notes. Sharps, flats and naturals are signified by S, F and N.
You can enter a melody from sheet music (bearing in mind the single note limitation) quite rapidly, and because of the slow speed of the cassette operating system the disc system is used, so that the data file is compatible with both TI-Writer and Editor/Assembler - both of which require the 32K RAM expansion. It is this compatibility which makes the program powerful.
On playback, the tempo can be set, and a short sample examined. The minimum expected number of notes is 40, and the system has a capacity of 500 or more.
Documentation is sparse but adequate, although the program may have limited appeal due to its requirement of an expensive system.
