Interbank was one of the coolest uses of the Speech/Sound Pak.
Now, the SSC could have strings of music pre-programmed and triggered,
so you could load it, then say "play that sequence" and it would do it
by itself. That was cool.
If you want to have fun, plug up almost any of the old Steve Bjork disk
games from the later CoCo 2 days -- Pitfall 2, Ghana Bwana, etc. -- and
listen! They have music (Pitfall 2 played the background music) and
some talk -- Ghana Bwana says "ugh" when you shoot the natives. Pretty
neat re-experiencing games with the SSC once I found that out.
Interbank was cool, providing sound effects to the scenes. Wow, forgot
about that one. Who wrote that?
