Update on Apple 1 cassette interface card?

All,

As a new comer to this forum, I saw one or two folks attempting to make a replica of cassette interface card for the Apple 1. The forum history seems a bit cold on this topic.

Did anyone succeed?

I've just won a obtronix Apple 1 reproduction kit. Haven't starting building it yet (work keeps getting in the way!).

I'm *really* trying to find a good way to load/save code to/from the Apple 1 Repro. Besides the cassette card, do you all have any ideas?

I emailed the guy who made the Apple 1 repro kits; he said he's working on the cassette board. The board is in the prototype stage now.

Send a message to Vince Briel. He may still have some serial boards. You remove the 6821 from the Apple 1, plug the board in, and plug the 6821 into the serial board. You'll end up with a 2400 bit per second serial interface that's tied into the display and keyboard on the Apple 1 -- hook it up to your Mac or PC, set a terminal program to 2400 bits per second, and off you go. Anything you type on the terminal program goes to the Apple 1 as if you typed on its keyboard; anything that goes to the display on the Apple 1 comes back to the terminal program.

I bought one from Vince a few weeks ago, and he was kind enough to include BASIC in an email. I pretty just pasted BASIC into the Apple 1 and ran it. Pretty cool. Smile
