AUDIO SERVICES
 
ATL provides virtually all services required for the incorporation of audio technology in electronic products. These range from speech encoding for the 50CXX series of semiconductors using Linear Predictive Coding (LPC) to voice over music for the 3477 series chips using Continuous Velocity Slope Detection (CVSD). We can provide the audio data in any electronic format required for your application.
 
SPEECH ENCODING
 
LPC speech encoding is performed at our facilities using professional speakers and the TI encoding process. Foreign languages are handled routinely, with Spanish and French being the most common.
 
VOICE OVER MUSIC
 
ATL maintains a complete recording facility for electronic music production, multitrack recording, and mixing voice and music. Equipment includes an Ensonic SD-1 music production synthesizer, a Casio MT-640 keyboard synthesizer, a Roland SE-50 stereo digital effects processor, a Roland MX16 16 channel mixer with 2 effects loops, a Roland RA-50 Real Time Arranger and a Tascam PORTA-1 multi track recorder. Most of the equipment is computer controlled through the industry standard MIDI interface. Finished product can be supplied on tape, disk or PROM, depending on your requirements.
 
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
 
ATL also maintains an extensive array of equipment for the development of complete audio based products. We can deliver finishished product, designed to your specifications, in prototype quantities or any production volume.
 
STANDARD PRODUCTS
 
Standard demonstration products are available from ATL that can be used for demonstrating concepts, or for actual production. We currently stock demonstration boards for the TMS 50C20, TMS53C30, TMS3477 record and playback and a TMS3477 with a non-volatile vocabulary. Each product provides stand-alone operation.
