In my experience the hardware it is a real mess, but once it works it is
quite nice. There are two programs that can sample the tape data, one is
TAPLOAD by Richard Storer and the other one is MTAP by Markus Brenner.
Both generate TAP files, which are more or less compressed 1 bit samples
of the tape data. After having TAPed the tape ;-) you can use some other
programs to extract the raw binary data from it. You can also record the
TAP back to tape (PTAP by Markus Brenner) or you can use PTAP to play
the data directly into the tape port of the C64. But the last option is
currently just an experiment of mine, it needs the signals inverted in
hardware. There is likely to be a new version of PTAP that will support
this option sometimes.
