Re: Steinberg SMP II Operation with Falcon CAF

It seems that the four "SMP 24" MIDI outputs came to life after toggling the synchronization settings in CAF. Now to see if an "A-B" switch will work so that I can have my printer and the SMP II attached all of the time without switching cables. Now I have six MIDI outs if I stil...

Steinberg SMP II Operation with Falcon CAF

I was fortunate to finally find an SMP II for my Falcon/CAF. Unfortunately it is not showing up under the devices yet. I am suspicious that it may be the centronics/printer cable, so I'll keep trying different cables, but I'm just checking to see if I am missing something. I have SMP2_19.DRV in the ...

Re: Laser printer for 16/32 Atari

One more question: Since I will have a jetdirect card, will Mint direct the output of NVDI to an IP printer instead of the parallel port? As far as I can see so far I would need a windows network using Samba (I don't have a Windows Machine), or output from NVDI from a file and then print the file fr...

Laser printer for 16/32 Atari

The HP Laserjet Series II printer that I have been using for years and years finally died on me (paper jams, no one to service). I would like to buy a newer model black and white laser printer that will be compatible with AtariWorks, Cubase and Notator (primarily). It seems that newer HP PCL printer...

Any hope of TAPATALK being re-enabled? PHNotify would be an awesome tool for me!

Media Player

I'm looking for a media player for my CT60 Falcon to play AVR, AIF, WAV files. I have always used Aniplayer, but I have problems with bus errors when running it in Mint. Also the colors are all weird when using the Supervidel. I'm wondering if there is anything new out there that I am missing? Falca...

Yes, I have used Aniplayer to convert files to .mp3. This is probably what I was thinking of.

Anodyne cdaudio mp3

I remember at some point I could use the cdaudio.prg that comes with Anodyne's Extendos to record .mp3 files to disk from a CD. I think that I may need to set an environment variable for the lame encoder or something like that. My old documentation is all packed away, and I'm not finding anything on...

Re: Mounting Svethlana

Thanks for the photos. For now mine is just taped to my IDE cable, which puts it in a perfect position to keep the Svethlana ribbon cable perfectly straight. I have the ethernet cable wire tied securely to the back of the case. It doesn't look very "professional" but it is doing the job fo...

Re: Moving CT60 to a different Falcon

Once I had put everything back together, I began to test Cubase Audio Falcon and quickly found that I was going to need a patch to get SCSI read and write working properly. I applied the patch that Rodolphe recommends for the CT60. Fortunately the surface mount resistors were already 30 ohm, so I on...

Mounting Svethlana

For those using a tower or rack case for their Falcon, how did you mount your Svethlana (if you have done that!)? I have a Wizztronics Falcon Rack case, and I have a couple of holes in the back that were meant for external SCSI connection that I do not use, but I think I will have to create some kin...

Re: Ethernat Toast?

The final answer to the question of "Is my Ethernat Toast?" seems to be "Yes", for networking anyway. I installed the Svethlana, and it is working properly. USB on the Ethernat is still functioning.

Re: Moving CT60 to a different Falcon

Well, I must add this to my pile of embarrassing mistakes, but when I soldered the wiring for motherboard clocks for the Supervidel, I reversed the two pairs of wires. This is why the "new" Falcon would not boot. Thank God I didn't fry anything! I have everything put together and working p...

Re: Moving CT60 to a different Falcon

I have tried all suggestions: Different SDRAM, checking the fit, holding reset button, pushing reset button multiple times (all sort of futile, I think since I'm not even getting anything in 030 mode). I also removed the 68882 FPU, since that was the only thing I added before trying to install the C...

Moving CT60 to a different Falcon

I'm moving my CT60, Supervidel and Ethernat to a different Falcon. It is a UK revision A board with TOS 4.04. It has a 68882 FPU. I had changed the power supply to US, added the Wizztronics 14 MB memory upgrade and put in a new 80 MB IDE drive. Everything was working and I was using both TOS and Min...

Re: Ethernat Toast?

Solved (at least for now)! This appears to have been a Mint problem, or at least a Mint configuration problem. I decided to wipe things clean and reinstall using Easymint. As soon as it finished, networking with my Ethernat came back to life. In fact, I am typing this with my Falcon. Thanks!

Re: Ethernat Toast?

I haven't tried TOS/Sting on this particular Falcon. That is a good suggestion. I don't think it is Mint, because I tried restoring my partitions back to before the problem started in case there was some kind of corruption going on with my Mint partitions. I restored the boot partition and the ext2 ...

Just an update. This problem still persists, but I don't think it is the Ethernat.

All the drivers load properly, the interface is up when I run ifconfig, etc. The LEDs are lit, et...
