£30 for some bendy plastic and a crude sound program....?

Post by Commie_User » 06/09/2009 - 21:00

...Go on then, you twisted my arm!

And with this obviously rushed promo disc to spin on my record player, I can only dream of being the next Mike Rutherford until my bits arrive!

Enjoy a piece of well-meaning Commodore history.

I've been wondering how much I'd get for my custom-made MIDISIDbox shoulder-slung instrument, last active seen at Back in Time Live Brighton, and which was handmade and is obviously one of a kind...

Very amusing!

And what was the verdict on our disposable little bundle of joy...?

(Personally I quite like the Music Maker overlay. I'd rather get the overlay than the single-octave keyboard plugged into the user port as I would have spent tons more just to play much the same sounds: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Music-Port-Tech-S ... .m63.l1177 )

...Funny how few seem to know of the C64c keyboard overlay, though I have two myself.

Some keys are now broken and had to be carefully refitted with strips of tape, which mostly restores the usability. But who expected them to last for over 20 years?

(Though having said that, my original design C64 overlay is still in perfect order.)

Never saw the C64C overlay...

And of course we 64 users had The Beatles Playalong Album years before anyone thought of putting their music into a game ;)
