RAM320XE/576 order thread

Recommended Posts

Luckily there are thousands of MOD files readily available (from ST and Amiga) and one can use Neo-Tracker to convert them into NEO format (convert from 16Bit stereo into 8Bit stereo).

Actually, the MODules have already 8bit samples. Some players convert the samples to 4bit to save space if Pokey is used for playback, but the Covox is 8bit natively.

 

 

The sound quality is pretty good, BTW. Unfortunatelly, many MODules are not replayed correctly or sometimes loaded at all. However, the wider spread of the Covox may encourage some people to release new and enhanced players.

Thanks. I do my best. I should add the final corrections and layout and release the final version of the manual. But writing the documentation is allways the hardest and most annyoning part for any developer ;)

It's smaller than I thought! (That's what she said.)

Here is a size comparison to a Yankee Greenback:

I would be interested in one for my 130XE. Wonder if you can still combine it to use the 130XE memory plus the memory of this board. Have to figure the current US CZK exchange rate to get the board with everything.

 

I see another advantage, it makes the cartridges upright on the back of the 65XE,130XE, and 800XE. Some cartridges shorted out because they were horizontal and intended to be set upright on the 400/800/XL computers. I had to place something underneath my Basic XE, MAC/65, and Venture (in Williams shell) cartridges so they won't loose connection. We can thank the Tremials for coming up with that design. Seems like only the Atari Carts with the little slots and protector on the sides held in place.

Hi, I have another 50 semi-assebled cards, but I'm currently waiting for the cart connectors.

I also have to fix one thing with the covox enhanced version (see another thread).

Any news about the connectors or the issue with the Covox implementation?
I can't find the other thread you referred to, Ctirad.

Cheers.

The Covox is fixed to $D600 in the current batch to avoid the conflict with the shadow Pokey registers described in another thread. The new revision of the PCB will have jumper to switch it into $D280 when needed.

Yeah I received mine too. What a beautiful memory expansion, and guess what: it simply works! No bells or whistles... plug, and play.

 

Great device! Friendly price! Good shipping. Very well built!

 

Me = very satisfied customer!

does this work like the old 320XL upgrades you produced ie can you run a 65XE with dead RAM?
