I finally have the 2.0 release of the POKEYSND routines available for
download.  The address is shown below.

The new routines now support up to 4 chips.  I've also changed the sound
blaster drivers to be a bit more generic.  They sound routines should
now work on most (if not all) sound cards.  The sound blaster driver
routines are also available to be downloaded and can be used

For examples on what the POKEYSND 2.0 can do, check out the following:

   EMU2.0 - by Neil Bradley
      Classic Arcade Emulator that supports:
         Asteroids, Asteroids Deluxe, BattleZone, Black Widow, Gravitar
         Lunar Lander, Red Baron, Space Duel, Space Invaders  

   XL-IT! 0.18 - by Markus Geitzen
      Atari 800XL/XE 8-bit computer emulator

   VSS 0.70 - by Dan Boris

All excellent work!  I've greatly appreciated the support, especially
from Neil Bradley who has provided some excellent testing support. 
Thanks again Neil!
