getting ready for a C64-project...

Well, if you look at my latest del.icio.us-bookmarks you could already tell… I’m busy gathering info for a C64-project… And today I got another C64 with diagrams, extra chips etcetera. So now I have two machines and a bundle of info…

I do claim more often I’m getting ready for a project and sometimes there’s nothing to be heard from it anymore… In that specific case, with the Indy’s and the Arcade-cabinet, that’s still on my list… really! ;-)

Anyway, this project is going to take off sooner, I ordered some other specific parts, I hope I have those before the weekend, so I can start on all this somewhere this weekend.

Without getting to specific, this project has to do with this other rockstar in my hometown. But like always, we will see where this all goes from here… *^_^*

    What are you going to be doing with the C64? Or do we have to wait in unbearable suspense?

    Have you checked out Paul Slocum and the audio stuff he’s doing? He uses a C64, a couple of Atari 2600’s, and a Compaq Portable with an original SoundBlaster in his band Treewave and it sounds great. you should check out his Cynthcart for C64.

    I actually have, I found him/treewave when I was looking for stuff other people did. About the synth/cartridge, I ordered this one…
