New batch of 5V CPLD's for the MIDI-PAC

Got our hand on a new large batch of 5V Xilinx CPLD's that will be used for the future MIDI-PAC's.
We where also able to get all of the old tooling working and we just succeeded in programming the first of those devices !
The re-layout of the PCB can now start which will secure a steady delivery of new MIDI-PAC's.

Orbit PCB layout has started

After completing the design/schematics of the Orbit project, it's now time to start working on the layout of the main PCB board. This process will take some time as the design incorporated 728 components. Also a lot of traces will require additional attention because of the needed matched impedance.

Styles CD preview added to music player

With our new music player present on our website, it seemed no more then logical to add the Styles soundtracks made by Jan to our playlist. All numbers are made using a MSX as sequencer/synthesizer and MIDI equipment for the additional instruments. The numbers have been shortened to prevent misusing off the various soundtracks.
