Microdisc controller + Amplibus, do you want another batch? CLOSED LIST.

This is the right place to discuss on how to implement hardware vsync, adding a VIA or AY chipset, puting multiple roms, or how to design a new flash expansion card.

I really recommend anyone owning an Oric to get one of this controllers. It is a unique opportunity and the machine changes completely.

Hi SIlicebit,

It is a very fortunate coincidence as I was just about to send you a private message because some months ago, at the semi-annual French Oric meetup, I expressed interest in acquiring a Microdisc controller, and someone mentioned your name...

So, I would be very interested to know the details about your upcoming last batch... Could you please tell me how much it will cost, and how to get on your list, and what type of payment do you accept (Paypal surely ?).

Thanks in advance,

Laurent

Thanks Chema, stupid of me, I shoudl have checked the start of this thread.

The price point seems to be really friendly, that's really very nice of Silicebit, because I reckon it really barely covers the cost of the components:
"The price of controller is 50 euro, and Amplibus 5 euro. Shipping cost (international signed with tracking number for Europe + Greenland, parcel from 100grs up to 500grs) is 9.50 euro, TOTAL = 50 + 5 + 9.50 = 64.50 Eur."

Thanks Silicebit for your hard work for the community, and I'll be exepcting news so I can put my name on the last batch !! :-)

Cheers,
Laurent

No, I don't think so. Silicebit usually doesn't start a new batch until the last one is finished.

He builds them by hand in his free time, so be patient :)

You are right, it's not the last batch. As very well Chema said, I don't start a new batch until the last one is finished.

Please check your inbox, you have a PM.

The controller can be used with Oric Atmos and Oric-1, but the Oric-1 must have ROM, not EPROMs. You can use 5.25", 3.5" and 3" disk drives, HxC, HxC slim and Gotek with HxC firmware.

Ah, ok, i'll check out if my Oric-1 has a ROM. Actually i'm not at home, i'll check it out next week.

Please check your inbox, it seems that your last PM didn't arrive.
