Hello,

Could Pamela makes 16bits FM or AM modulation? Fully compatible so it can do so?

Could the narrator.device or SPEAK: be enhanced?

I think a new "Amiga speaking" with concatenative, phonemes based samples in hifi 16bits instead of FM/AM modulation (or even both techniques) could be a long term and nice project. My?

Fully agree our Amiga should speak more.
In nice female voice, please :-)

Its a feature ;) H.D.M.I have royalty rates and high licence costs :)

todays random thought, would it be possible to use the new PAMELA audio chip with some SoundBlaster compatiblity.

  Has some tried the Say command or mount SPEAK: handler on V4 SA ? Is it working ? Perhaps, I ´ m confused with what can do the audio.device and not the hardware ?

I look HardRKM the term is : « modulating one channel data (period or amplitude with another channel ». Is V4SA compatible ?

  Also, Pamela is said to be fully compatible with Paula chip?
 
  Any clue ?

Yes, Pamela fully supports the audio modulation as explained in the Amiga Hardware reference manual.

Simply speaking, Pamela is basically 2 Paula chips.
You have 2 times 4 channel.
And both the 68K CPU and the Copper can code them like before.

New is the feature that each channel can be 8bit or 16bit as you need it.
