Quote The real musiclover:
I discovered a replay 16 sampling cartridge, with no instructions? Shouldn't be too hard to suss out if i get it, should it?
I'm returning to this thread to say that I recently bought a Microdeal Replay 16, complete with original box, ring bound manual, floppy disk software and even a few software adverts from 1994 too! I did get back to Tim about his ST Replay cartridge and that works lovely too. Oh and if you are reading this Tim, I hope you have enjoyed the stuff I sent you.
I'm really very impressed with the Replay 16 and the only limitation I can see, is that it records directly into RAM but not to a hard drive. Perhaps someone here knows of software for the ST that can do this? Actually there is one I think on the web ftp sites 'hddirect.lzh', but it won't interface with any other sequencers.
Other cheap goodies I have bought are:
(1) Vidi ST video capture kit, which luckily had the original box, manuals, disks and so on.
(2) Practical Solutions Monitor Master for sharing one screen with mono and colour cables to view all screen resolutions.
(3) IDE to CompactFlash interface with 40pin slave socket (getting this soon)
I am quite surprised with how enjoyable using the Atari STe is again, after using my own PCs at home for the past eight years. Yes the STe is more limited compared with a modern day PC, but then again the STe is fast to boot from it's IDE drive and rock solid reliable.
Footloose and fancy free...gizz a job!
