Re: Atari - Unitor SMPTE problem

The idea is to make troubleshooting as straightforward as possible so you can ascertain if the Unitor is working.

Re: Atari - Unitor SMPTE problem

I would recommend forgetting about the Datalink2 for the time being and focus on striping a tape from the Unitor and having the Unitor follow the SMPTE from the tape, alternatively you could record the SMPTE to a modern computer and see what's going on. When you disconnect and move gear around it's ...

Re: Processor comparisons

You know well that one thing is theory and another practice ... then come the problems of latency, lack of synchronization, "CPU out of time" (I can not remember well the name that had CPU saturation in Windows systems) . I do not doubt your word, mate, I just doubt the effectiveness of t...

Re: Processor comparisons

Dear mate; I still disbelieve as Thomas the apostle, that PC I do not think that was able to record 16 audio tracks, I have seen more powerful configurations and failed for those years. Are you sure of its effectiveness? That's Ok, nothing wrong with a little scepticism. Yes I am quite sure that I ...

Re: Processor comparisons

Just to elaborate, the PC I was using had a 100MHz Pentium processor, BIOSTAR MB-8500TAC-A Ver 5 motherboard running Windows 95 off a 1GB hard drive, Cubase Score 3.0 for PC which was on floppy disk at the time and a big old Roland RAP-10 ISA soundcard which basically had an on-board sound canvas wh...

Hi AtariZoll, I just want to let you know that just because I might disagree with you on the issue of free speech that doesn't mean that I don't respect you and I am sure there are lots of things we probably do agree on.

Re: Processor comparisons

According to the Cubase Score 3.0 for Windows manual I have in front of me the minimum requirement was a 386DX-33MHz however for recording audio the computer must be a 486DX-50MHz or better. I ran this version of Cubase on a Pentium machine back in the day and I could run about 16 channels no proble...

Re: Cannot read MS/Dos disks anymore (ST 1040)

Yeah I have to agree with AtariZoll's reasoning there. What drives are you trying with your Atari? I mean you do know you can't just pull a drive out of a IBM PC and slap it into an Atari right?

Re: Cubase Lite not working

Alright so you are not formatting the disks on the Mac or Atari, you are just doing a basic drag and drop? What OS are you running on the Mac and Atari? It's quite possible that Charles is right about your Atari floppy drive being misaligned but at the same time Macs are not exactly ideal machines w...

Re: Cubase Lite not working

Try DOS formatting those DD disks on your Atari if you can or anything else you might have kicking around that can DOS format a DD floppy....for example you can format DD DOS floppies on Yamaha RM1X.

Re: Friendchip K..AT keyboard remote for Atari ST/STE computers.

The physical device would be very easy to make - just connect ground, power and rx/tx to keyboard port and keyboard. The real work is in the software, you'd have to parse the IKBD stream coming from the keyboard and then insert valid IKBD packets when appropriate. Edit: Not very expensive either :)...
