Thanks all for the interest, we hit the summer times with their associated delays though - mainly real life stuff. ~20 lines left for manual routing atm before the pcb design is complete - the challenge is to keep it a 2-layer board and small like the previous version. We'll get there :)

I signed up just to declare my interest (already registered on the google sheet). I look forward to seeing this project progress.

I'm also interested, but I'd MUCH rather get an micro-channel one. I wonder how hard would it be to adapt the product to MCA.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Considering their rarity, I wonder how many people would be interested in an MCA which also had a Soundblaster compatible codec?

ANY new MCA card would be more than awesome, even a basic OPL2.

I have a soundblaster pro for MCA, and it is NOT very complex.

In theory, you could salvage a isa soundblaster for most of the parts.

I guess that custom CT5335 chip could be a problem. However I'm not experienced in the MCA hardware, maybe it could be easily replaced with some off the shelf part.

I have never owned, used or even held in my hand something MCA LOL
IMHO the better option would be some sort of MCA->ISA bridgeboard, that would open many possibilities.
