Topic: ZX81 corner
Well, after our brief discussion with master utz here, I decided to started this special new topic, for all of you to remember that there another adorable Sinclair machine except of the Spectrum, called the ZX81 (not to mention the mighty QL, hahaha!!!).
Of course we all know already and we admired the unique programming masterpiece of utz, called 1k2b, which allows the humble Zeddy to produce 2 channel sound and clicking drums through it primitive MIC output.
This is historically AMAZING and EXTRAORDINARY (I mean it), just imagine uncle Clive listening to that back in 1981, when he was first promoting his no-sound-at-all machine to the british market!! He would simply pull (the rest of) his hair, hahaha!!
All the people out there, who know a thing or two about Z80 programming and about making music, should definately dedicate some of their time for producing 1-bit music for the Zeddy! It's really worth it!
On the other hand, I know a bit about hardware, so I would happily assist anyone who would like to enhance his Zeddy with the (very simple, indeed) modifications required, in order to produce some proper sound through its output! Just ask anything you like here, or in PM... I could even do the whole thing for someone if he wishes to send me his ZX81 PCB here...
