Re: TapOric - android TAP player for Oric

Hi @ISS, how close are we to a new release? I have discovered the Novalight tool from Symoon and was wondering if you are integrating his code? Also the cosmetic loading pics I mentioned would just set this up lovely.

As before really appreciate your efforts on this and enjoying using the app 😊

Re: Oric-1 Sound Mod HELP !

Here is where I have housed the pot. I had to relocate the crystal component to the top of the board to allow it to fit otherwise it wouldn't turn. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7823/33303713408_d490f1112e_z.jpg https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7922/33303713398_e581e92913_z.jpg https://farm8.staticfl...

Re: Oric-1 Sound Mod HELP !

I am in business!! I have installed a pot and it has resolved my issues. I can now get sound both from the internal speaker and the monitor.

Thanks so much for all the pointers. Now I can actually try out the loader android app which I was hassling @iss about! :lol:

Viva L'Oric!

Re: Oric-1 Sound Mod HELP !

This has got me thinking. When this MOD last worked I had no less than 5 systems sharing the audio input of the 1084 via splitter leads and adapters. This would add resistance right? I remember when I had one with a loose connection I would find the Oric wouldn't output sound tonthe monitor until I ...

Re: Oric-1 Sound Mod HELP !

Hi,

I did cut the track, yes. I have replaced the switch in case it was that. I got a brief blip from the monitor when I switch to it but then nothing. Switching back to the internal speaker works. I will see if I can get some PC speakers and test further.

Oric-1 Sound Mod HELP !

So I did this sound mod quite some time ago and it worked http://www.48katmos.freeuk.com/soundmod.pdf. When I recently had to dismantle my Oric-1 to repair the keyboard multiplexer I de-soldered and then put everything back together but thought it would be good to add an RCA socket rather than havin...

Re: TapOric - android TAP player for Oric

Unbelievable. I have spent most of my spare time this weekend repairing a failed keyboard multiplexor. Have had to harvest from my already knackered Atmos. Now I can't get my old sound mod to work and I have convinced myself that my original diagram is wrong. I will post on another thread to see if ...

Re: TapOric - android TAP player for Oric

Hi @iss Can you post an update on this project? I really want to have this app so I can fast load on the old Oric.
