Hi guys,

I did convert SAM for the Acorn Atom because I have an Atomic SID expansion..... viewtopic.php?f=44&t=7276

That's lovely. I had the Currah speech cartridge which, among other things I slung out, I wish I'd kept as I could least make a weird vocal track from it.

Ah well, can do it again now there's this, plus the text-to-speech in the Amiga 500. And I can have a choir of Steven Hawkings if I can get a Kenneth Kendall chip for the BBC as well.

Though I'm not clear what this one is about: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ACORN-BBC-MO ... SwISNbh7tx

It appears to be a repro chip and an original speech one, which should just plug into the usual ROM sockets?



EDIT: I think I'll have SAM, as shown on the 8-Bit Guy's speech synth roundup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsMRxNSDccc

Classic
