25 Introduction
26 ~~~~~~~~~~~~
27 This is the pre-release testing version of the first Atari XL/XE chip-music
28 collection. There is some kind of structure in the archive, anyway, it can
29 change till the full version. The whole collection outfit was inspired by
30 the HVSC collection (with some differences).

43 Help!
44 ~~~~~
45 As you can see, there are lots of tunes in the 'Unsorted' directory. If
46 you're 100%ly sure about origin of any of these tunes (Who did it, where it
47 comes from, when was it composed), please let us know immediately so that we
48 can complete the information about the tune in ASMA (or move it to the right
49 directory). We would welcome if you sent us also the binary file (or an
50 ATR/XFD disk image) with the original peace of software with that tune. Mail
51 any such information to pg@pinknet.cz. Our aim is to completely annihilate
52 the 'Unsorted' directory :-)

55 For contributors
56 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
57 If you want to send me some tunes, they must be already converted to SAP
58 format and should include all the information needed (author, name, date,
59 number of songs). If you're unsure about any information needed, you can
60 send me the music as well, maybe we can find the info together. If you don't
61 know how to create SAP files, send me the binary file with the INIT and PLAY
62 addresses and memory location where the tune has to be loaded. See SAP.TXT
63 for SAP format description. The filenames must not be longer than 26
64 characters (plus .sap) e.g.:
65
66 12345678901234567890123456.123
67 Intel_Outside_Fractal_Part.sap - all right
68 Jocky_Wilsons_Darts_Challenge.sap - wrong!
69
70 Because of compatibility reasons only characters 'A..Z', 'a..z', and '0..9'
71 can be used in the filenames. All spaces must be replaced with underscore
72 ("_").

79
80 Adam Bienias (SoTe of Slight) - ripped about 80% of the tunes
81
