Hello all Interesting discussion and subject. I'm working on something related to this, I want to use an SFX Sound Expander as a stand alone synth, with buttons, knobs and all that stuff. In the longer term, it would be great if something new could be written for the C64, as lets face it, the software is a bit basic and crude. I got that program working in Vice, no problem at all, except rename it to a .prg from a .txt, haven't tried it on a real C64 yet, maybe later today. I own 4 of these carts and three full sized keyboards so am familiar with the "something your wife wants to throw away" thing. This just motivates me more to complete what I've started. The price of these things has risen over the last couple of years, but they are quite common still. It is correct that they came with a 3256. One of my 4 carts is a bit crunchy in sound so did look at replacing the chip with a 3812. But at the moment that one is used for testing and development. There is plenty of documentation for the device and most of the parts are still obtainable, so a DIY clone shouldn't be too hard to build. I am more of a hardware person, so if anyone needs some help on this I'd be happy to oblige. Regards to all. -- View this message in context: http://nabble-com-cbm-hackers.2304266.n4.nabble.com/SFX-Expander-programming-and-VICE-tp4107070p4122461.html Sent from the Nabble.com: cbm-hackers mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
