I'm curious about CHAOS. Do you have more information on it? Does it completely replace TOS?
The Digital Master unit contains a SCSI host adapter (by ICD), DSP (digital signal processing) and digital Imput/Output hardware, a SMPTE/EBU reader/generator with chase lock, and a 760 Mby SCSI hard disk.
Imput/Outputs include balanced audio XLRs, stereo DAT RCA jacks, an unbalanced 1/4" phono jack for audio SMPTE time code, as well as the familiar DMA In/Through and a SCSI port. Up to seven hard drives can be daisy-chained off the SCSI port, allowing up to 14 hours of stereo recording.
Connection with the ST is via ribbon cable to the cartridge port, ACSI or SCSI port for more devices and RS-232 (modem port of ST) for synchronism.
Runs under TOS, but additionally the unit runs under CHAOS (the Custom Hybrid Arts Operating System) allowing full multitasking and communication among system programs.

Does yours work?
For which Atari computer is it suitable? Which software are you using?
