Hello guys! I received this device today.
Sounds good, tried some games. Do you guys know what music program works with Tandy 3-voice synth?
I tried Music Studio (separate from DeskMate, found somewhere on the internet), but it doesn't recognize TSR Tandy... It goes via PC Speaker 🙁
Deskmate 2 I can't test cause it requires Tandy video... Or which Deskmate includes Music program, but could work with regular EGA?
I found Version 3.03 and 3.05, but it doesn't have Music program inside.
Thank you in advance! 😀

Do you want a tracker or a player ?
There is a version of deskmate working on other computer than tandy .
I hope to finalize a version of mod master with tandy .vgm files support soon.
You can play tandy .vgm files with sbvgm as well.

i guess it needs some patching, as you have no tandy it does not detect one and acts correctly.

Note that Programs using Tandy DAC also would not work. You just have 3 Voice Chip.

Here is some Software:

I also played around with gwbasic (tandy version) which fully runs except for tandy video modes.

Haven't discovered anything in my needs. I basically want Music editor (or sequencer) to compose music. But as I said Music studio I discovered it works, but only with PC Speaker... I guess it needs to be patched.
