Ooo, I got a bunch of Seeed packets in the post this morning... It's Spring so I guess I should plant them and see if any grow... ...I feel a bit like a dog caught between lampposts. Where do I cock my leg first? I guess that will depend on what parts I already have.
I was perusing the Youtube today and I noticed there's a Dual YM Stereo Board for the Spectrum computers. How on earth did the Spectrum scene beat the ST scene to such an accomplishment? And considering how well the Tweety Board sold back in the day, how come no major commercial vendor offered a Dual YM expansion sound board for the ST? In hindsight, it seems like a no-brainer. And even in the modern Apple II enthusiast scene, they now have Mockingboard clone boards, some of which can support 4 YM/AY sound chips. They're even adapting MODs created for the ST to run on their boards. So, anyone enterprising up to creating a Dual YM Stereo Board for our STs?
So as I've mentioned in my "ST Gaming" thread, I recently picked up a 1040STe that is new in the box and bone stock. What I'm wondering is: -What should I do to it? -Why? -And where do I get the part/mod? I have heard "upgrade the RAM" okay great where can I get that. I have seen the "ultrasatan" drive on ebay, what is that for? I have heard whispers of a processor upgrade, does anyone do that stateside? There are several local good computer shops, so if I get the parts I'm sure I can have stuff done locally. Thanks, and appreciate the input! Looking forward to souping up my ST and having all sorts of fun with it!!
