Tap2Wav & Tap2Cd


These two tools perform the same thing: allowing the creation of .WAV files from .TAP files. Those .WAV files then can be either written on an Audio CD, or directly played by the PC sound card to the oric, or recorded on a tape recorder.

The main difference between both programs, is that Tap2Wav simply generate a Wav file corresponding to the given tape, while Tap2Cd uses a special encoding that give a x10 speed up by appending a special fast loader before the converted TAP file. It's faster, but also less reliable, and cannot work for all kind of programs.


To create a wave file using Tap2Wav, here is the syntax:

	%OSDK%\bin\Tap2Wav [switches] tap_file wav_file

Switches can be:

	-8  produces a  8 kHz WAV file
	-11 produces a 11 kHz WAV file  (default is 4800 Hz)

To create a wave file using Tap2Cd, here is the syntax:

	%OSDK%\bin\Tap2Cd tap_file wav_file
