The enhanced X1541 cable with datassette support. I have made one, but
found out the other day I have to resolder the READ and WRITE lines as I
got them the wrong way round. D'oh!

Send the cassettes to my college address in Cambridge and I'll do the
transfers for you. I am about to do a tape transfer of 'Music Maker II', a
version of the SFX keyboard overlay program for the SID chip with Sound
Expander support. This means you can edit SID sounds and play them using
the 5 octave keyboard of the Sound Expander.

I'll upload the .TAP file onto funet so you can see the results of my
transfer setup.
