How did you get it to assemble without errors?
# ERROR: music.pa @ line 18, can't combine memory-reference instructions
#IFNDEF CPU <CPU
...Also, this is likely one that would work with MACRO-8, but I've not tried it. Over 2400 baud, it'd take it a little while to assemble with three passes, I'd think. The syntax matches what MACRO-8 supports, anyways.
