Currently I don’t even have a ZX Spectrum, but I did, a long while ago, and one day I’ll have one again. When I do I’ll be running this among a number of music programs that I used to use a long time ago. That’ll be fun.
When I was about 11 or maybe 12 I really desperately wanted a tape recorder, and for Christmas I got one. It was a fergusson and it looked like this.
I found it again at a very weird museum a few weeks ago. It took me right back. I used to use it for recording myself and later on it was very handy for use with a ZX81 and then with a ZX Spectrum.
It’ll be interesting to see what sort of pricing comes up for Spectrum Next when it arrives on whatever crowdfunding site they choose. I like the look of it, but what I’d really like is the same thing for a ZX81. I doubt very much that anyone is going to do that though.
Anyway, it’ll be interesting to see how this develops.
This is what used to happen when you found a computer anywhere. Of course sometimes the actual words were less appropriate, if you know what you mean.
Simple but effective …
A nice collection. I wouldn’t mind that lot myself!
I don’t experiment with it so much anymore, but I used to quite a lot before. I think I always wanted to find that perfect device that could do everything, and often the only way was with an emulator of some kind.
