FS: "Alien Group" SC-01-A Speech Synth card

Hello all,

 

I got this card with a system I purchased complete, and found myself not really using it. The SC-01-A chip itself seems to fetch a sum of $200-$300 (!). This card has no docs I can find, but here are pictures of front and back:https://imgur.com/a/JaDamZ5

I tried random softwares with it until I was able to get some voice out of the old HULK text advenure. The card doesn't work completely as expected for the game (although this may have been a beta disk imafge) but it seems to indicate the SC-01-A is fine, and you can hear it here:

As opposed to or before auctioning this off, I would like to just offer it for an even $300 to an AppleFritter member, with hopes it won't get taken to just scavenge the SC-01-A IC by a random buyer. Open to reasonable offers, and I will cover the cost of insured US shipping. 

 

Cheers,

Alex

I meant to post this in the appropriate section (Trading post), my apologies. Hopefully it can be moved.

 

In addition to the SC-01-A Speech card, I also have:

- Apple IIGS Stereo card, unused/new ByteBoosters Darksound with all accessories and instructions. $65 incl free US Shipping. 

- 2 new complete Brain Board II cards on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/115682294541 

The eBay sales of Brain Board II's help support 'Childs Play' charity, which gets [video] games and other things for kids in childrens hospitals. 

 

Cheers,

Alex

A dump of the Eprom would be

A dump of the Eprom would be great to preserve online if you have the capability.

Rob, Right now the card is on

Rob,

 

Right now the card is on hold for Bill, but I'm sure either of us can dump the ROM. I'm happy to do it before shipping it out if he does not mind, presuming we complete the deal. Or I am happy to trust him to do it, if he agrees. 

 

I am all for ROM preservation, I have contributed to MAME before and I am happy to help with retro computer ROMs when I can as well, in the very rare occasion I come across something like this.

I refrained from buying it

I refrained from buying it because I'd have been too tempted to pull the SC-01 chip off and put it on one of my Mockingboard cards...
