APPLE ][ Serial Cable & Serial USB Adapter

Foto review of the Serial cable and Transfer program:

ADTPro may be used to transfer Apple diskette/disk images in DOS or ProDOS/SOS format. The Apple client side happens to run under ProDOS or SOS, but it is perfectly capable of reading or writing Apple DOS (or Pascal, or CP/M, or…) diskettes.

ZX Spectrum +3 (Issue 1) Sound Fix *updated*

August 22nd, 2009 2 comments

Sound fix diagram here. (pdf)

from Cristian Secară Homepage:

The first release (the +3) has a fatal hardware mistake: the 128K sound output is completely distorted.

  • Tech explanation: the analog output of the AY-3-8912 sound chip was intended to be amplified by a one stage common-emitter transistor. In practice, they have forgot to put a resistor to the transistor’s emitter. The result: the transistor works in switch-mode – the sound is converted from analog multi-level amplitude to digitized two-level amplitude, same as the old 48K sound system.
