How is a companion software not off topic, but a companion hardware off topic?
You choose.  :) :) :) :) :)  No offense, IMHO such a board is even more needed, not only as companion board. It would have a great general advantage. As you mentioned the PlayCity before.



Quote from: zhulien on 10:38, 04 August 21... as great as the Llambdaspeak is, i need multiple sets of speakers to hear everything... i have 6 speakers on my desk for 1 CPC and still cannot hear everything.

Well, the MP3 Player part of the LFS or the Speech/PCM part of the LFS can be fit into the Sound-In port of the LFS of course. They do lead to the internal sound pin of the expansion port. So somehow everything
can be listened to by the internal speaker.

Of course it would be great (as told) to have a small sound mixer center for the CPC. But IMHO not as expansion. One can use a commercial one for example, even if I wouldn't know where to get a suitable one. But that's another topic.

Nive demo,

Did you interface the X2GS via MIDI or GPIO?

It's via the Tx pin (and 5V + GND), so via the serial inerface.

Is the serial interface in "MIDI" format?

Yes the serial interface of the LambdaSpeak FS can be set to the MIDI baud rate too.
(see handbook in the download section of my homepage for baud rates and more).

The MP3 player of the LambdaSpeak FS (or LambdaSpeak III) seems to exist in two versions. They look identical, but may have different firmware (or similar).

The difference is seen when using the command !MP3PLAYF to play a complete folder of MP3s from the SD card. The needed command sequence does need a 2 or a 0 at one position.

To solve this problem meanwhile I uploaded the first LFS DSK with a &00 and a &02 tag.
See which ROM will get the job done for you.
The difference is only one byte (&00 or &02)

BTW, There's one unit of the LambdaSpeak FS on Ebay now:
https://www.ebay.de/itm/265391147915?hash=item3dca8b8b8b:g:ULQAAOSwVlFhg966

I post that here, because it will take some more time (months) to have new units ready.

Actually, is there a new batch foreseen in the near future? Actually I am also interested in a playcity if available anywhere.

Well, I don't know about the PlayCity, it has it's own thread, see there:
https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/amstrad-cpc-hardware/playcity-aka-ctc-ay-(mx4)-for-august-!!!/

This is the LambdaSpeak FS thread. And I'm working currently on a new small batch. Only the RTCs are missing.


With a 4x mixer I can use:
- CPCs 3,5mm Audio-Out
- LambdaSpeak (Speech and PCM)
- LambdaSpeak (MP3 Player)
- PlayCity (two more sound chips!)
all at the same time and in the same setup.
No need to plug in / out cables any longer.  :) :) :)

Thanks.

With pleasure, I'll PM you for details.


Guess one last LFS is now still available.

Awesome audio mixer... are they a stand alone mixer or part of a new lambdaspeak revision?

Update of the ROM for LambdaSpeak FS released (minor updates only).
- Two versions of the ROM for the two versions of the MP3 player, so !MP3PLAYF shall work (either one or the other ROM). They sell the MP3 players, but they have two variants, can't be seen easy when buying.
- Command !BIGWATCH does activate the 'eXtra blocking for dialogues now', so the command will work more often (after using the LFS for crazy stuff).

I wonder if one of the voice recognition modules would work at the back of lambdaspeak?

Fun thing you mention that, just an hour ago I had a talk with SlartiBartfast (German CPC Forum) about having Skype on CPC. So, the video just shows what's missing. Thanks for the video! Looking at the contacts of the card it shall run with LambdaSpeak, but I will try to find out more.  :)

Are you interested in one unit of the LambdaSpeak FS for cheap?

I have one board here for 20 Euro + postage.
You need to buy the Text2Speech module by yourself (I ran out of them).
Also the MP3 player is connected by a small cable, not soldered on the board.

PM or Email me :-)

Hello, I'm interested by one unit of LFS, I PM you. Which Text2Speech module do you suggest ? Thank you

GUNHED

Hi, got your message - Thanks! Will come back to you soon.

The used module is this here:
https://www.mikroe.com/text-to-speech-click

At the moment it's at $46, before it was usually at $39.
We bought some for $20 (and later $30) when they had a promotion.

Hoping they will drop the price soon again.  :)

When the IC alone is sold 8€ for 1pcs on Mouser, yes the current module price is excessive today.
