Due to an oversite, the apple II mp3 player was never added to the store. That error has been fixed and you can order yours from the store.
I’m am please to report that the largest workshop that I have conducted concluded with all 17 units functioning. There are now 17+ KFest special edition 2011 a2mp3 cards out there playing all kinds of mp3 files. Really cool to hear podcasts on your apple II. Next month we will tidy up a few loose ends and get the card release to the general public. The code included is an open source demo program found on a prodos 140K image file here:
True programmers will be at work soon after KFest to write a better mp3 player program for both 8 bit models and the GSOS!
After a year on the shelf, the Apple II MP3 is nearing initial completion. The card is designed to work with most Apple II’s except the IIc line and allows you to play MP3′s from your flash pen drive. There are limitations to the device but it will play songs from the root directory of the flash drive. Other uses may include file transfer from flash drive to Apple II and sounds and songs for gaming applications. I’ll see if I can write up a blog before the workshop at KFest this year where you can build the MP3 kit in a workshop setting. Kansas jFest gets exclusive custom MP3 cards in a first time ever custom logo format. The Kansas Fest logo will be on the card and only available at the show. The attendee’s will get first crack to make awesome software programs for the player and with all the outstanding bunch of programmers there, I’m sure it won’t be long before there are several apps available for the MP3 card.
