64 Software From Firebird

Firebird has released several new software packages for the Commodore 64 and 128.

The Music System is a comprehensive music development package that includes full sonic tailoring of the computer's SID chip, multi-voicing, mono or polyphonic modes, editing, recording, and storage and playback of sound settings and compositions.

There is an advanced version of The Music System which includes the features of the standard version and adds MIDI capabilities (compatible with either S.I.E.L. or Passport Designs MIDI interfaces). The advanced version enables the user to link and edit sequences, control six MIDI tracks or devices simultaneously, print sheet music, and also permits automatic transpositions and automatic tempo conforming and correcting. You can upgrade the standard version to the advanced version at a nominal cost.

Gerry The Germ and Microcosm are the newest in the Firebird Super Silver Disk Series. Both games feature music, sound effects, graphics, and animation. Gerry The Germ is a journey through the human body with Gerry as the guide. In Microcosm, the player must defend the agricultural cargo of a crippled interstellar freightliner against a hoard of mutant insects. The games are on one flippy disk and require either joystick or keyboard control.

The standard version of The Music System has a suggested retail price of $39.95 and the advanced version is $79.95. The Gerry The Germ/Microcosm Super Silver Disk Series package retails for $19.95.
