EDITOR PIECE: SOUND IS probably the most neglected aspect of computer games- witness the measly tweeting of the nation's top-selling micro: the Spectrum. Even on other machines, programming musical noises can defeat even graphics experts. In BASIC, it's a chore. All this is changing (see p.60). Stereo on the Amstrad and Enterprise tell their own story. Now we have MIDI - a sort of aural MSX - to help you make your micro talk to synthesisers, and keyboards. It's clear that the days of the tin-eared are numbered. From the top, now... TONY TYLER.
