Hello to all AF-members,
during the past years i have placed here a lot of links to pages within my site APPLEBOX.
In fact that has been only a part of the subdirectory of Electronics...

In the mean time this directory has been expanded quit a lot and it´s getting now a own
entire topdir in my site now - specialoly now because i´m currently adding several hundreds of new pages....

within the past 2 weeks i´ve added about nearly 400 pages.....
the new contents bear following topics:

- dozends of interfacecards not yet availiable at asimov
with documentation and circuitplans !

- conplete sourcelistings of programs and patches
for example a wide range of patches for different controllers to use 80 track drives with different systems
patch for temoval of CPM2.2 Bug and other stuff more....

IMPORTANT FOR MUSICIANS :

- the entire description of modification and expansion of Apple II computer ro real working synthisizer
including detailed plans of 3 interface cards and program source listings for this entire system.....
in printed version this project cover more that 50 letter pages...

- a 150 pages of how to make a CPM86 computer with 8086
with complete Software and details
of interfacecards and circuitplans

- a 50 pages of how to make a CPM68k computer with 68000
with complete Software and details
of interfacecards and circuitplans

the entire stuff from old download pages will be moved to the new basic entrypage within the next 2 weeks.

At the moment the most of the new stuff has not been translated and remains in German language.....
but some people won´t want to wait several months till that entire stuff has been translated to englich language
or quite a lot of guys are able to read German language sources or know someone able to translate....
so therefor here is the link to the new relocated contents....

UPDATE

( see posting below ! )
the NEW LINK to the APPLEBOX is:
( NOT VALID ) http:// www.appleii-box.de / ( NOT VALID !)

CORRECTED NEW LINK IS:


http://www.appleii-box.de/

at the moment the entires are marked with flags indicating the availiable language....
and as well known : circuitplans and technical details often don´t need translations
and same is often valid to sourcelistings of programs...

if page seens to be empty try few days later.... my wires are running hot while uploading that stuff....
it nearly 1,5 GB of content and maybe parts of that content uploading completes tommorow or up till next weekend....
then all pages should display correct....

translöation of that huge bunch of pages ( remember please that´s more than 400 pages of stuff ! )
will require quite a period of time....
so english translations will become availiable within next months ......
and i will try to carry out that tasks besides of my other tasks
by respect to amount of demands for translation
and their urgency....

within the next 4 to 8 weeks another amount of 250 or 300 pages will be added.....

i hope the stuff will be usefull to the community.....

Re: APPLEBOX RELOCATED ! BUNCH of NEW CONTENT ADDED !

Hello to all AF-members,

first some info´s beside.... while uploading the stuff i crashed against the limitations of space within
my normal privat website i have used for years.... it´s limited to 5 GB webspace and uploading tossed me above 6,5 GB !

Therefor i had to think about upgrading that site with the need for quite a reasonable raise of fees
or just making a contract for a new website with same conditions and new domainname.....

unfortunatly the name APPLEBOX isn´t availiable due to that fact that some are occupied by other users and some
are blocked away from guys speculating to resell the domainname, that is so close to "Apple" ....
....like good old Marlon Brando says: "I will make you an offer you may not reject...sigh"
But i do fight hijacking domainnames and leaving the domainnames for years blocked without any content....
so "go-daddy" you may keep alone in your bed with the cutoff horsehead....
after several research i got the free non occupied domainname http://www.appleii-box.de...

so i started again the stummbling attempt of uploading the several hundreds of pages again......
and now finally i can claim the task to be finished......

all pages shall now be working..... it´s still with the limitation that most of the stuff has not been translated yet except the pages i have started up right in english language......

within the next days i´ll start proof of all pages hunting for bad links or missing pictures and corrections of the contents for second time....

and i am still adding lines in the indexpage to new contents where the uploading has been completed
.... the contentlinks are indicating by flags content in original german language and
the contents translated to english by flags.....

and yes... the contents will be translated within the next months ( we are talking about more than 500 (!)
lettersize pages ) to english language too and adding links to PDF-Files for downloading entire projects
..... but i´m single aged gentleman... - so be patient.... such giant task reqiuires quite a bunch of time.... and there are other things and tasks in life running besides....

Just a remark to musicians....:
within the next days there will also be added several links to entire projects of building up own synthisizers
and similar projects - and most of them use standard chips .....

about the other contents read the first posting....
and when at eastern the bunny is jumping around leaving chocolate eggs in the park the old pages and links will be removed.... ( before that happens i will try to correct all former postings of the last years here in the forum )

so in doubt after the bunny passed by please only search contents at:
http://appleii-box.de

sincerely
speedyG

Very nice Speedy! The maintenance section(s) (especially disk drive) will be helpful. Keep up the good work.

Re: APPLEBOX RELOCATED ! BUNCH of NEW CONTENT ADDED !

Hello to all AF-members,
this posting adresses to all members that act as musicians or know some guys within a band...
in the early years of electronic music the first synthisizers appeared to be aliens from
outer space.... one of the most famous synthisizers was made by MOOG.
That kind of synthisizers have been used by Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons Project, Emerson Lake & Palmer....
In the years of 1978/1979 in Germany the electronic magazin elektor published an entire
project of building a MOOG compatible music synthisizer .... the covered several dozends of issued of that mag....

the FORMANT had been published by the German electronic magazin elektor in 1978/1979
the FORMANT is a complete Music Synthisizer with modules and the Synthisizer is
compatible with the famous MOOG Synthisizer and its a complete description of all modules
built with standard components - the pages contain circuitplans and pictures and films of the requires PCBs
the entire project is more than 80 lettersize pages in German language....
it will be translated entirely to english language within the next year

while now digitalizin my archives i stumbled across that project and fitted it for publishing the entire project
within my appleii-box.de site.

So now the entire project is availiable at:
http://www.appleii-box.de/appleboxGTpageSynthisizerFormant00.htm

have fun and enjoy the stuff....
sincerely speedyG

Re: APPLEBOX RELOCATED ! BUNCH of NEW CONTENT ADDED !

Hello to the members at AF performing music,

here now the next strike in republishing lost gems of musical history.....
the VOCODER is a voice synthisizer .....

in fact there are 2 projects in this pages:

the first is the most early one pulished be the German electronic magazin elektor in 1977 and some addings in 1979.
This part of the project is completely in the pages with all circuitplans and PCBs.

several years later in 1981 the German electronic magazin also published a project
of a Voices Synthisizer also named VOCODER.

With the second project there is at the moment a restriction: the plan of the mainboard PCB.
The magazin did not publish it within the magazin itself but mailed it to those who requested
it from the mag by mail....
i had requested it but not kept it within the magazins in my archive - so it´s somewhere in another place there...

but due to the fact that i am now scanning the entire archive it will be discovered within the next months
and added to this pages as soon as possible.

And also here is the current limitation: the project has been published in German language
but it will be translated within 2014 to english language too....
same excuse.... the entire bunch of translations will cover more than 800 lettersize pages...
this will demand quite a period of time..... when it´s translated it will be noticed here by posting

the pages are availiable at:
http://www.appleii-box.de/appleboxGTpageSynthisizerVocoder00.htm

in the meantime read / view and enjoy
sincerely speedyG
