Does someone here know the Commodore 1660 modem?  I don't have any
experience in using modems with C= equipment.

You seem to know a bit about Commodores so here's a question.  Recently I
have acquired a model 1660 modem 300 and I find there is a strange RCA
connector on it next to the phone jacks, labeled AUDIO.  I brainstormed
about his with a bunch of people and the general agreement is that this
was probably used for acoustic pickups back when people actually used

My question is can this "audio" input be used somehow like a soundcard?
Because essentially a MODEM is a MOdulator/DEModulator, i.e. a D/A/A/D
convertor...  I would be connecting it to a first generation VIC-20.

Any info you have would be very helpful.  I'd like to do some audio type
experiments with sampling and this little unit might help...?
