This software is for Acorn-RISCOS computers powered by ARM processors and will not work on other platforms.

The software is either public domain or open source freeware released under the GPL. It has all been tested as best I can but I cannot accept responsibility for any damage caused as a result of its use. Thanks to all who have helped with suggestions, improvements, and fault finding.

32 bit compatibility

Current software versions have been compiled to run on both 26 and 32 bit operating systems without any special library requirements. Some previous releases require 32 bit libraries when not used on an Iyonix machine. In these cases the libraries are available from Castle Technology Ltd.


ELS is the Electric Light Show, an audio visualization plugin for the DigitalCD music player.

Requirements are RiscOS 3.5 or later. To get the best from the animations, a Strongarm machine or better is recommended.

This is a port of an MP3 encoder, optimised for speed. It's simple, small, and fast. Executes at speeds of just better than real time on a 233MHz SA RPC. One version for all machines, but it will be work best (fastest) with a StrongArm processor.

Please note. This is not a high quality encoder. At a 128k bitrate it may be acceptable to you. Try it and see. If not there are links to higher quality alternatives at

A desktop clock with selectable clock faces, chimes, and hour strikes. If you like playing with art packages, it is possible to make a photograph of any clock come to life on your desktop. The application is supplied with sound disabled to keep the filesize down.

RiscOS 3.5 or later.
As mentioned, Tock comes with the chimes and hour strikes disabled. The help file describes how to enable them generating mountains of audio WAV files in the process. If you want to do this, but cannot play WAV files, try !PlayIt.
