Random MicroBee tapes - g67wjjk - 28-12-2020

I've got some tapes that came with a MicroBee I bought years ago.  Assume most are archived but thought I'd post in case something was interesting.  I've never tried loading any of these.

If anything is interesting, happy to digitise into whatever format you want.

Brett.

Sorry for delay, but yes would love recording of all except for the 2 Microbee labelled tapes (Demo & LCBF) and DCLONE. While we have DCLONE we dont have a copy of the scan of the cassette artwork, so that would be good together with scans of the inserts and cassette label's of the others. Record at 44.1khz and save as 16bit WAV files, stereo (or mono if using a mono recorder).

Many thanks and much appreciated Smile

PS: I doubt Hoppy is a Microbee tape but a TRS-80 tape, but we can use that also. Thanks.

Okay, I've had a go at Extended Turtle and sent you a PM with the Dropbox link.

I've also uploaded DCLONE image.

If my recording works then I'll do the rest.

Excellent, I loaded the WAV into a PC85 via the emulator after selecting out the best looking channel, and bingo, it loaded error free first go with no filtering or anything needed.  So looks like the tapes have been well cared for in the past 30+ years.  Looking forward to the rest Smile

Any luck with the other tapes yet ?


RE: Random MicroBee tapes - g67wjjk - 10-01-2021

Okay, have uploaded the rest!

Umm, so, yeah, enjoy the random music at the end of the Banner/Snake tape ...


RE: Random MicroBee tapes - g67wjjk - 12-01-2021

Just found this tape - Cherry Maths 1 by Caresoft, 300 baud and 1200 baud.

Worth digitising?

Brett.


RE: Random MicroBee tapes - g67wjjk - 12-01-2021

I saw that MSPP had a disc version listed, so I've digitised and uploaded to my Dropbox in case.


RE: Random MicroBee tapes - ChickenMan - 12-01-2021

Great, thanks yes, most of the tapes we have disks versions but not Tape version or a pic of the tape label/artwork.
