Description:

SOUND is a DESQview (tm) specific utility which generates tones
from the PC's speaker at the specified frequency (in Hz) for the
specified duration (in timer ticks). A duration of 18 ticks
generates a tone of about 1 second. A frequency of 0 Hz generates
silence. If both frequency and duration are zero (or no parameters
are entered), the sound queue is cleared. In note mode, notes can
be C, C#, D~, D, D#, E~, E, F, F#, G~, G, G#, A~, A, A#, T (tempo)
and R (rest). One digit corresponding to octave (0 thru 5) must
follow each note without any spaces interveening. One digit
corresponding to tempo (1 thru 7, default=5) must follow T. No
parameter follows R. C2 corresponds to middle C. A2 is 440 Hz.

Usage:

SOUND [options] freq,ticks freq,ticks freq,ticks ...

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
