Hi together,

I am actually working on the DK'Tronics and Amstrad SSA-1 speech synthesizer's emulation.

Booth are almost working perfect...

Amstrad still denies the software speech (|SAY,"....") but all features games already work fine with it.

Example video:

If someone knows the exact timings and states of the FBEE port during CPU cycles please let me know!

Cheers,

Markus

When I was a kid I used to have a Currah μ-speech synthesizer for my beloved CBM 64.

I remember how I was mesmerized by this metal - robotic voice and my very first attempts to program this little, black devil !

By watching your sample video I had a flashback of my youth !! LOL !!

Excellent work Devilmarkus !

The emulated speech synth's are almost ready now... Some balancing is still needed but they already work quite nice.

As bonus I added "Amdrum" emulation, too:
