Some time ago i got my hands on set of midi hardware for 35 euro, including a Sound Sampler, as sold by Kat & Korsh overhere (with Dutch manual), a Siel Midi Computer Interface and the Tron Digidrum. Lucky find, included are some self build Midi interfaces as well from 1991 and some PCB’s, copied manuals & disks.
The boxed Datel Sound Sampler i got from Facebook with some other stuff, posted earlier.
The top cartridge..haven’t got a clue where it came from. Tested, but standard C64 startup screen. Will figure it out later.
Two eprommers I got from Bram Brooddoos. The Dela 3 and one probably from a 64’er design. Not quit sure if Frank Hofmann did the design or build this one. Need to find the software for it.
Some books and manuals, bought a german manual for the final chesscard and a few weeks later found a dutch manual. The software protection manual is a nice addition, last 7 years came across just one…this one.
Shareware plus : Datel Midi Interface and the Mini x-pander
And some ESD protectors to solder to the joystick connector. And three Shuriken modulators for the C64. Might use these in the new 250407 boards. Need to adjust them for working als Pal instead of NTSC.

Tested and working. Seems too be new, although the cardboard inside starts to discolour.
Had it operational within no time. Protovision sells these at the moment. Bought mine on Kleinanzeichen. Configured a ftp server on a NAS, updated the software and wifi and ftp acces was running in no time. Took some googling to find out how to deal with whitespaces in your Wifi SSID. I use this for testing hardware speedloaders etc. More info on forum64.de
Thanks Bram! I actually got a Commodore 64 mug as well and a “onderzetter”, wth is that in english.. Forget to take photos of those.
Added these in the last few months. The blue final cartridge does not belong to this Medica Manual. It’s a very early final cartridge, thanks to Bram.
Seems that there were two different version of this box. Got this one from Pieter.
Some good finds and build projects. First of all Bram managed to get his hands on a 128 with two 1571 drives, both with a Lamm Prospeed ML speedloader. I traded my second MAC64 for one of these. Nice to find one, they are offered on ebay, but pricings over 100 euro..nah.
Second, a very nice project (more information on forum64.de), the MeGALoDOS. Bram and I both bought one from the developer. Looks promising, this big boy has the following loaders included:
Professional Dos (RAPI DOS)
Dolphin DOS 2.0
Prologic DOS 1.6 (nicht classic)
CBM DOS 2.6 mit Fix-Patches
Turbo Access 2.7
und Turbo Trans 3.4 mit 512kb Ramdisk
And we both bought the Phantom reproduction board (available at corei64 webshop). The original Phantom from Trilogic is pretty hard to get. The best thing is that you can actually connect two drives with the Phantom in series.
Reproduction boards are not cheap, but fun to have and to play around with. Photo’s of the Phantom will follow.
Manual and kernel dumps of the Lamm ProSpeed 128 can be found here.
Both C128 eprom dumps are from a C128 containing the Lamm ProSpeed. The 8kb kernal for the C64 is a split from the original 16kb dump with a hex editor. The C64 kernal in the C128 is a 16kb bin file, always containing the C64 kernal and the basic rom. Basic rom is the first 8kb bank. Again thanks Bram Brooddoos.
Hopefully it will be a cold, dark and quiet winter…there are some projects waiting….
Added to the collection, thanks to Marco and Bram.
