  1. Seeking C64c keyboard

    Does anyone here have a C64c keyboard with front-printed keys?  The mechanism isn't that important.  I'm looking for a full set of keycaps that aren't damaged or discolored.  I'm sure there's at least one lying around after you extracted the SID.  I have all the SIDs I need now and won't be buying any more donor C64s.
  2. TwinSID?

    I bought eight 6582 chips when someone ran a group buy and maybe ten more assorted types I pulled out of various C64s. I still need to find the time to sit down and finish the MB6582s. I need encoders and maybe new panels (because the very first run of those kinda sucked).
  3. TwinSID?

    Oh, I have two MB6582s already. Look at the first group buy list.
  4. I don't know how many of you are into classic computers as well as DIY synths. This is the OT forum, so I guess I'll give this a shot. Sometime in the 1990s someone came up with a nifty single-board computer kit called the P112 that uses a Zilog Z180 to run CP/M and related classic operating systems. Fast forward to 2005. People still wanted P112 kits, so I took preorders and did a run of a little more than a hundred. Fast forward to today and there are still some people who want kits. So I'm taking preorders again, this time with the help of Kickstarter. See http://661.org/p112/ for more details on the P112 is and to find a link to the the Kickstarter project page. The Kickstarter funding ends on November 12, so if you want one of these things, now's the time to put your money down.
  5. TwinSID?

    So, I decided to drop in after being away for a long while and I discovered a new thing called the TwinSID. It looks like it addresses my main problem with the sammichSID: lack of knobs. Is / was there a group buy for boards and cases?
  6. Switching MB6582 power supplies

    I checked with him and he does make 240VAC-input ones.
  7. I don't think anyone has mentioned this yet, but there's someone on Ebay selling replacement switching power supplies for the C64, C128, and assorted drives. See http://myworld.ebay.com/basicwayne/. If you like to play with the SID when it's still in the C64, he has triple-output power supplies: one for the C64 and two for floppy drives. This should do the trick for you MB6582 owners who are edgy about using an old power supply.
  8. I just noticed that I have lucky number thirteen.

    Why doesn't Java doesn't work on MacOS anymore?
  10. JSynthLib update

    Exactly what is the problem with Java under MacOS 10.7? As far as I can tell, Java is simply not included in the default install, that is, you have to download and install it yourself. See http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/install-java-jre-mac-os.html

  12. sammichSID Final Batch!

    Well, I guess another run can be warranted given that the miniaturized SwinSID is available now.
  13. Grease for the knobs

    It looks like something you'd find holding a bag of bread closed.
  14. [Gone] PT-10 faceplate free

    The faceplate now belongs to Timmy. Thanks!
  15. If there's someone out there who wants a blank faceplate for a PT-10 case, I'll send it anywhere in the US for free. I don't need this one.
