I've heard of programs that make sounds using the calculator. How do they work and what do you need to use them?

You know how it says "This device may not cause harmful interferance" on the back? They lied. If you run a program and put the top of the calc near one of those mini-boom-box-thingies and set the box to a weak frequency you will hear various sounds as the calc executes it's commands. Some programmers have mapped out which commands make which sounds and have been able to make actual music and even low-quality speech from it. It's actually quite cool.

You can try the archives at ticalc.org. They generally have a nice selection of things to choose from. Check the asm directory for your respective calculator. You will need a set of headphones if I remember right - 2.5 mm. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. It's been more than a year and a half since I've tried anything with sound.

Those calculators produce sounds by toggling lines on the link port. There are a few converter programs out there that let you convert .aud or .wav files to calc programs.

To make sounds with the FM output the calc makes, just experiment with different For( loops and stick in different numbers. It makes different sounds for each one. To hear it, place the calc near the antenna on any FM radio.

5->dim(L1)
For(A,1,2000
End
For(Q,1000,20000,100
End
For(L1(5),509,103024
End

etc

btw I havent run this code, but I think it should spit out some different tones.
