 Introduction

  This package contains an AmigaOS helper utility that generates
  a Kickstart module to initialize the mixer settings for the
  Macrosystem Toccata sound card while Kickstart boots. This way,
  Amiga audio passthrough is available early, before HDD based
  booting takes place.

 Usage

  First, use ToccataControl (from the Toccata install disk) to
  set up the desired mixer settings (typically, by moving the
  AUX2 slider up).

  After the settings of ToccataControl are saved, invoke
   toccatainitgen
  from CLI. By default, it will write the result as
  "toccatainit.module".

  That module can be used/tested with "LoadModule". Typically,
  a user might want to install the module permanently. A number
  of expansions offer the ability to flash such modules (e.g.
  Deneb, FreeWay Pro, BFG9060, ...). Custom Kickstarts might also
  be an option.

 Options

  VERBOSE/S  - detailed output of parameters as parsed from
               ENV:Toccata.regs

  FILE=OUT/K - output file path, e.g. toccatainitgen FILE=ram:tmod

 Notes

  A pre-built module for AUX2 is available in the Examples 
  subdirectory that can be used directly in case that those
  settings appear satisfactory.

 Technical Notes

  The Toccata sound card requires a delay after a chip
  reset. In order to avoid additional boot delays, the 
  Kickstart module is separated into two phases. First, 
  the reset is issued, after which other modules can 
  initialize. A second later, the actual setup of the
  registers takes place within a task that shuts itself
  down when done.
