aylet 0.5

aylet plays music files in the `.ay' format.
aylet plays sound files in the .ay format. These files are essentially wrappers around bits of Z80 code which play music on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128's sound hardware - either the beeper, or (eponymously) the AY-3-8912 sound chip. (Files using the Amstrad CPC ports are also supported.)

The sound hardware emulation is based on the one I wrote for the Spectrum emulator Fuse, and the Z80 emulation is from Ian Collier's `xz80'.

There are front-ends for curses and X, both with much the same features. That said, the curses version does have a `non-UI' option, letting you use it in much the same way as mpg123. You can also output music as a sample on stdout.

Note that playlist management is rather poor at the moment (it just plays files specified on the command-line). I do plan to fix this eventually.

What's New in This Release:

Tracks are now faded out correctly.
