Re: Sell me a data recorder! Price no object!

Right, we have some success! Albeit via a long-winded method! I have successfully loaded the .wav file from my NEW W10 laptop to the Atmos. So, at the moment, my only route to writing stuff on the Atmos, saving and reloading it is to: 1. Write program on the Atmos 2. Use Audacity to save the file as...

Re: Sell me a data recorder! Price no object!

BTW do you hear the file playing through your Atmos speaker? When working fine, on all machines I suppose, it can be heared if you're close enough and paying attention. Last option: could you post one of your WAV files somewhere, so I can download it and try loading it on my machines? ;) I don't he...

Re: Sell me a data recorder! Price no object!

Personally, I would start from a WAV file generated by TAP2WAV, TAP2CD or equivalent, because then you know it's a binary perfect file, not the result of something that was sampled. Thanks for the suggestions, much of which I've tried but will continue plugging away. Regarding converting from .tap ...

Re: Sell me a data recorder! Price no object!

I will be having another crack at this today - loading files from the XP laptop to the Atmos. I realise there are record and playback volume settings in the Audacity software. Do you think I should be doing anything specific to help by changing the laptop's own sound settings? ie. the settings for M...

Re: Sell me a data recorder! Price no object!

Also remember to not have any "system sound" or "email client" or anything else doing "bleeps" and "plops" when you try to load, because they will also reach the Oric. There shouldn't be any interference from the laptop, I was sure not to have any other programs running and it's not even connected ...

Re: Sell me a data recorder! Price no object!

Well, I have an update. I've made some progress but we're not 100% there yet. I am using Audacity to successfully record files from my Atmos to my XP laptop, as WAV files. Playing these files on the laptop (in Audacity), it's lovely to hear the Oric's loading noise. I can open these files on my lapt...

I think Baz had some cassette recorders. You might find him via the World of Oric pages.
He's got loads of 'em but doesn't want to sell them - can't say I blame him! Gonna really try to get to this today - have booted up an XP machine so hope to be back with good news.

Re: John Gage reviews Damsel In Distress!

Well, I just put in a price request for oric.net as it's just a holding page. Within minutes, got this bargain deal:

"oric.net is currently valued: $4,788"

Think I'll pass.

Re: John Gage reviews Damsel In Distress!

Maybe you should try reviewing some games, Rob. I think you'd do a better job. Heh. I don't fancy being 'out there' with a YouTube channel. Too shy these days! I applaud those who are brave enough to put themselves in the firing line though. Maybe a website... that'd be more my area. I used to own ...

Re: Sell me a data recorder! Price no object!

Okey dokey. Will do as recommended. Looking forward to it. As promised, I'll report back when attempted, hopefully with spiffing news.

Re: Sell me a data recorder! Price no object!

Btw, you're spot on re. new machines. The W10 lappy I'm using does have only one sound port so it's a good thing I kept my old machines. Had a quick look at both Audacity (free) and the paid equivalent which now seems to be named WavePad. There are two versions - Master's and Standard with different...

Re: Sell me a data recorder! Price no object!

Thank you so much. The lappy I'm using now is a new one with W10 but my spare machines are old-ish Acer lappies with XP installed so it seems we have similar set-ups. I am going to give this a try very soon and report back. I don't mind paying for software if need be. Back asap. Got lots of work to ...
