  • Fixed bugs that were causing inaccurate sound

Ah, memories!

The Acorn Electron was the first computer I owned (complete with the wobbly joystick port add-on!)

This emulator is absolutely spot-on. I grabbed a copy of Monsters and felt like I was right back there in 1984. Sadly, my Acorn died from a faulty RF modulator. However, I still have the spiral-bound User's Guide knocking around in a draw somewhere. The halcyon days when your computer's assembly instruction set was documented in the back of a dead-tree manual! I might try bashing in some code to see what the emulator makes of it :)

Great work!
