Hey, nice to see you around here, Miguel.

So you could not load software using audio? PM me here or in RetroWiki if you want help!

En la lengua de Cervantes, me alegro de verte por aquí. Me extraña que no hayas podido cargar nada por audio... El oric es un poco picajoso para eso, pero deberías de poder hacerlo funcionar. Lo más fácil es usar la salida de audio de un PC y reproducir el WAV desde él (sin filtros, compresion, ni nada parecido: yo he usado el reproductor de Windows y el Audacity). Lo más difícil es dar con el volumen adecuado.

Si quieres ayuda mándame un privado aquí o en RetroWiki.

Un saludo
!

Could you give more details about what went wrong when trying to load files? Are you using tapes, or a computer playing WAV files? (if so, are the WAV at least at 11kHz?)

The most frequent problem I encountered with tape loads that don't work, are when people use WAV players to load the programs: many WAV players that don't play the very end of the WAV file. The human ear can't notice, but the Oric does.
If the Oric remains in "Loading .." state, leave it like that and try running the WAV file again. If Oric quits "Loading .." quickly, then that's it.
You then need to either use another player, either add silence at the end of your wav files.
