Received my units Yesterday, Thank You. So far I only tested a gold unit as we are renovating the house and I don't have access to all my computers. Thank You once again for your efforts in this endeavour

Mine came in yesterday. At first, I was having problems with it, but after reinserting my memory stick, it works perfectly now.

Thanks for this wonderful project, dreamblaster.

I still post here, but only occasionally.

Hi!

I've received some Simmconn AWE64 Adapters from dreamblaster a few days ago. Today I've tested one of them with LG memory module (FPM 32MB 72 pins - 60ns):

The AWE64 identifies the SIMM module properly:

and it pass the diagnose test:

As suggested by dreamblaster earlier today, here I am freshly and finally registered. I was looking for the best way to extend the memory on both a CT4500 and a CT4390 last night. Much and much googling and reading to finally discover the original SimmConn project, and land here, once again when I'm searching for old hardware informations. Big surprise for me to find a fellow compatriot has been able to produce quality ones. No way to think too much, and 2 orders later (first one cancelled by Serge due to my lack of sleep, damn POD game !), a value one and a gold one has already been sent to me.

As soon as I'm able to test, I'll get back to explain everything and the result. Wonderful community I've found here, and there's no way I just sit and read. I wanna be a part of it ! 😘

Bye guys, see you all soon.

And dreamblaster, once again, thank you for everything !!!

Welcome to this site, sit down relax and read a lot. There is a treasure of information here but you have to dig deep to find it.
As for the SIMMCONN, I have a value one connected to my AWE64 value - it was one of the last sold by the original author before he ran out of stock a few years ago. I'm happy to see that they are in production again. I may want to expand my AWE64 park at some point. 😀

I/O, I/O,
It's off to disk I go,
With a bit and a byte
And a read and a write,

Last week, I installed a Simmconn Value adapter with a 32 MB edo ram stick, and it works like a charm! Great way to make more use of the AWE64, as 512 kB was not really impressive.

What would be a nice soundfont to store in a 32mb(24mb) ram module? Would it sound as good as a sc55?
