  1. Not quite... visit http://ucapps.de/midibox_sid.html and scroll down to the "hardware options" section. Step C is the full control surface, and that secton lists how many of each module you need. Note that you can build step C without building step B, meaning you can still have the full control surface for controlling only one SID chip.
  2. www.mini-itx.com/store has CompactFlash I / II to SATA, 40pin IDE and 44pin laptop-style IDE convertors. As TheProf said, CF's a better bet than SD due to its much quicker r/w speeds and total IDE compatibility.
  3. I'm still interested - put me down for one and tell me where to send my money! :P
  4. As long as you're not really, really anti, you should be ok - as long as it comes under "free speech" and not "incitement to riot". That said, the new Retrosic album has the lyrics "Blame your government / judge the innocent / kill your president / yeah, not a bad intent" so who knows...
  5. If you've not already taken it apart, i'd be inclined not to - there are companies who can take the platters from your damaged disk and recover as much data as they can from it, and they need to do it in a clean room - the slightest speck of dust can kill a drive. We had a similar problem at work - it cost like £500, but we got a fair amount of data back...
  6. OK, I'm no guru but I can help you with a couple of things: 1) Yes, that's exactly what it does. 2) Possibly, probably not. Either your memory usage will stabilise at >1gig (unlikely) or it'll fill up the second gig at around the same rate as the first. We use a freeware collection called the PC Repair System here at work, and we've found it to be invaluable for troubleshooting stuff like this - as well as being a damn usefull load of utilities in its own right. You can get it from http://www.dailycupoftech.com/usb-drive-systems/3/.
  7. Awesome remix, I'm loving the synth sounds - and I never thought I'd hear a C64/beastie boys mashup...
  8. Could you post a link to them? I've been trying to get a hold of them for a while, wasn't too sure where to look (Got an audigy, need to see if I can use a livedrive with it 'cause I can get one for free...)
  9. Yeah, I saw that this morning - unfortunately it's US residents only :'(
  10. I know this sounds real stupid, but I take it you have chosen the correct output in the "out" box for each track?
  11. Awesome, when you know how much shipping will be let me know!

    Yeah, I saw that too - still, if all you want to do with a footboard is change patches, there's nothing stopping you using a MIDIbox and Bome's MIDI translator...

    Damn... but still, as a standalone FX unit it could be pretty cool. Shame the documentation is somewhere between "minimal" and "nonexistant" - nobody seems to have a scematic for connecting the pots and encoders up, unless i'm looking in entirely the wrong places...

    That looks awesome, I gots ta try it out...
  15. @Moogah & Wisefire: If Wisefire's getting a set direct from the seller, can I get in on Moogah's group-buy? If so, PM me the costs etc and where to send the cash ;D
  16. Also, if the application doesn't support MIDI for volume etc., you can use Bome's MIDI translator to make your MIDI input simulate a keyboard.
  17. Well, you can buy the gameport / joystick / midi / whatever-you-want-to-call-it from creative if you have an SB Live or audigy - that's what I had to do. Basically it's a 15-pin socket on a ribbon cable hooked up to an IDC plug. I bought mine direct from creative, but it looks fairly simple to make your own and stick it through an old PCI backplate.
  18. Yes, it's entirely possible as long as the pot values in the stick are compatible with MIOS. (100Kohm linear, correct me if i'm wrong)
  19. Currently there are 3 MMT-8's on ebay uk, for £9, £30 and £31 including shipping. None have any bids. Obviously shipping to .au will be a lot more, but it's a start!
  20. If you're reserving some for the MB community, can I put my name down for one?
