In all fairness, he did say please and I tend to agree, screw scalpers.

Hoping to put up some more stock Wednesday evening. Maybe late!

 

Anyway, I have spent the last several days working on firmware. I am migrating to a new build environment with the expectation that the code will build more efficiently so I can add more features.

 

I recently came to a realization that I may be able to support POKEY sound on the board you already have without an actual POKEY chip (whether genuine or a replacement.) This may only work on games where the hardware isn't very busy (48k or less.) I am not sure if it would be very effective for the other schemes where the chip is busier, but I don't know yet.

 

So if you cannot find a POKEY and don't want to pay the price for the replacements, this may give you some functionality in the interim until you can find something. The Concerto has four 32-bit timers which I would use for this. May also support a sort of dual-POKEY, if people wanted that for four 16-bit channels, since there may be enough resources for that. Plus, softsynth such as bupchip is also a possibility, all without needing anything more on your board.

 

Of course I will continue work on HOKEY too, but my intention for that is more in the homebrew area as a lower-cost alternative since the other replacements are so spendy and the OEM chips are getting scarce.

I will add more in a few days and will continue to do so as I can get the current batch out. What I don't want is to have more orders than I can fulfill in a reasonable amount of time!

Hi Fred

i got a Concerto many years ago....it works well.

But it does not work on Pal systems.

Is there any new update for my Concerto?

greetings Walter

Will the new Concerto work okay with a PAL 7800?

We need a modification, that won't allow you to post, until you actually read previous messages.  Or an IQ test to open certain topics. :ponder:

 

With that said, put me on the list!!!111!! ZOMG

In the U.S.! :P

 

Could you please make your signature smaller?  It's obnoxious and I am sure nobody actually cares about what stuff you own.

Sweet jesus - now I see why I had that on ignore.  I despise most signatures on here - the ignore signature is such a sweet feature.

Yeah, for most people that is good, I can't ignore users or signatures, because I need to watch them.  I do have a gigantic list of people, that are not allowed to PM me though. :P

I will get outstanding orders out in the next day or two. I had wanted to include a build of the firmware using a newer compiler to include on new Concertos, but I wasn't able to get it to build properly so I had to use the old compiler to build. I still want to use the new compiler as it will let me add features more easily, but I will worry about that later. I spent probably too much time on it!

 

Anyway, as promised, I added some stock!

15 minutes after the on-sale announcement and there's still two left?  Slackers.
