AY Sound Cards

Post by RWAP » Sat Jan 12, 2008 4:53 pm

A couple of people have asked us recently about producing an AY Sound card for the Spectrum. Does anyone have experience of this - we understand that the original chips are now hard to find, so a re-design is required.

Well we have someone who has come forward offering to make some AY Sound cards - however, would people prefer that they were cased, or just the bare interface (cased version would be more expensive).

We can now supply Zaxon's Ay-Magic interface which plugs into a standard ZX Spectrum or the ZX Spectrum+ to allow them to play AY sound files. :D

The interface connects to standard PC speakers and has a through connector.

For more details and ordering please see our RWAP Software website

Rich, so that you can update your list of games which give AY support for Zaxon enabled 48K Spectrums, I wanted to let you know that Elevator Action has a nice AY tune included.
