Re: Newly made PCMCIA sound card

I'd be in for any new repro or fpga based solution that does not use ISA or the printer port. A bit off-topic, but would a parallel port sound device on a PCIe parallel port card work for you? I got some success with that, and yes, in pure DOS, even though the parallel port wasn't listening on the …

Phoronix has posted benchmark results, comparing Raspberry Pi OS 32-bit with Raspberry Pi OS 64-bit on a a Raspberry Pi 400 with 4GB RAM. Spoiler alert: the 64-bit OS outperforms the 32-bit OS in every benchmark, some slightly, others considerably. It's definitely worth upgrading to the 64-bit OS if …

Re: CVX-2 : covox adapter

The best would be to do a Disney sound Source like, With a bigger buffer and increased output frequency. A nice improvement over the original DSS would indeed be the ability to adjust the FIFO buffer size and the output frequency. The original DSS had a fixed 16-byte buffer and a non-adjustable …

Re: CVX-2 : covox adapter

I'm thinking of making a CVX5, any suggestions for changes/improvements compared to CVX4 ? CVX5 would be available in larger amount, it will take a few months though How feasible would it be to include Disney Sound Source compatibility in a CVX5 design? I know you already mentioned that a DSS clone …
