We are moving all Atari Lynx related content over to Atari Lynx Vault and all our shop content over to K-Retro Gaming. Please update your bookmarks!

As a result of this change, the following will no longer be available: Online Lynx Emulator, Collection Tracker, Game Ratings, News. If you are interested in contributing content to Atari Lynx Vault, we are seeking editors and maintainers.

Why is this happening? First - the Atari Gamer branding is changing to K-Retro Gaming to allow us to expand to providing games, replacement parts, and mod services to other game consoles. And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a new and modern content management system and chose a website domain that better suits the subject matter. Since we are operating this website in our spare time, on top of full time family and job committments, some features had to be dropped.

SFX

Songbird Productions is pleased to announce a limited cartridge run of SFX, the ultimate audio tool for your Atari Lynx.

What exactly is SFX?

SFX is an exciting, new audio tool for the Lynx, first released in early 1999. Perfect for the hobbyist developer or the curious tinkerer, this sound utility will allow you direct control over the four audio channels available on the Lynx. You can adjust volumes, frequencies, waveforms, and more. With just a few moments of effort, you'll be hearing familiar engine hums, rumbling explosions, and computer garbles. Blend several channels together at once, tinker with them on the fly -- it's all possible with SFX!

What is SFX not?

Clearly, it's not a game, nor is there a hidden game inside waiting to be discovered. It's an audio tool, and its purpose is to help hobby developers experiment with the Lynx's audio features in real time, as well as provide some "sound gizmo" fun for the casual user. It's also not a full music synth, and does not allow one to chain a series of notes together to play a song.
