The Digital Tape Alternative
for Amstrad CPC

What it does

It is used to play CDT files (games and apps) from a MicroSD card through an audio cable into where the tape deck would normally plugin thus eliminating the need for a 30-year-old tape deck. Its a play only function so no record feature. You can still record using conventional methods though. Simply find your favourite game or app in CDT  file format, copy it to the sd card and the rest is straight forward. It was designed for MSX computers. Its based on an MAXduino.

What you need to know

If you opt for it we provide an audio cable and a USB cable but you will need a power source for the USB. Any will do since it doesn’t require a great deal of power to run.  When purchasing a microSD card do not get a cheap or a super-fast one like a class 10 card.  You will need to own or buy (from ebay) an CPC data cassette cable as show in this pircture > HERE

 There are different options :
1) with USB £30.99
2) without USB cable £29.99
3) with USB and casette converter £34.99
4) with casette converter (no USB cable) £33.99

firmware go to Andrew Beer and Rafael Molina Chasserot who maintains the
currently used firmware known as MaxDuino.
