Pedrokko's Parrot Disks








Next Disk >>

<< Prev Disk




From Australia comes this collection of interesting digitised sound disks, all of which feature perfectly clear sound samples taken from various film or TV programmes. Some disks have stand alone menus whilst others require the player program on disk 1. Some will run on a standard 800XL whilst others require a 130XE or a machine upgraded to 128k. Sound samples eat up memory!

These are interesting disks which 'Pedrokko' has obviously spent many, many hours compiling and, whilst they are not useful as such, they are well worth a listen. Each disk has a message from Pedrokko as a text file explaining how the disks were created, how you might be able to use sound samples in your own programs and many other topics.

All disks are double sided.


The first disk contains player programs for different sound samples and you will need this for some of the later disks. The samples on this one are taken from Monty Pythons Life of Brian - 'Blessed are the cheesemakers?' etc.

Stand alone disk - all machines






Side A contains a long sample of 'I should be so lucky' and Side B has another long sample of Monty Python's 'Always Look on the Bright Side'.

Requires 130XE and player from Disk 1






A long sample of Clint Eastwood from the film Dirty Harry together with the famous intro to Star Trek. Both long samples.

Requires 130XE and player from Disk 1






Side A has many short speeches from various characters in Star Trek and Side B has a section from Mission Impossible designed as a criticism of those who dismiss the 8-bit systems. There is also an extract from an Aussie TV commercial plus a game for the Atari light gun with real gunshots.

Stand alone disk - all machines






Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - lots of them on both sides of the disk. If you are a Turtles fan you'll love it all.

Stand alone disk - all machines






More Turtles with shorter extracts on Side A and a much longer compilation on Side B.

Side A is a stand alone program for all machines whilst Side B requires the player and one of the two flies needs a 130XE






The first of Pedrokko's 'Cartoonies' featuring many favourite cartoon characters including Speedy Gonzales, Foghorn Leghorn, Yosemite Sam, Sylvester and Road Runner. Side B has longer samples of Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny. There is also a bonus from Bugs Bunny meets Marvin the Martian.

Stand alone disk although the bonus requires the player - all machines






The next 'Cartoonie' featuring Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd together with the Three Stooges on Side A whilst Side B has longer samples of Foghorn Leghorn, Sylvester and Porky Pig.

Side A is stand alone whilst Side B requires the player. Disk is for all machines






More cartoons with much longer samples both taken from Bugs Bunny meets Marvin the Martian. These are the longest samples of all of the disks.

Requires 130XE and player from Disk 1






Pedrokko's last offering is slightly different - a sample of a Kookaburra (an Australian bird) call which sounds just like someone laughing hysterically with a long extract on Side B from an Australian comedy show (no, it's not Neighbours.)

Stand alone disk - all machines






Pedrokko disks are available singly at 1.50 each or as a complete collection of 10 disks for 10. Please ensure that you have a 130XE or upgraded machine if you wish to purchase the full collection.
