Quote from: arnoldemu on 11:52, 10 January 14I do the same as ralf.I convert it to an au file. Load it into Audacity, ramp the volume up to 3/4 and play it to the cpc.Always works great - except for having to start/stop the tape myself
Quote from: chinnyhill10 on 12:30, 10 January 14If I pause the playback for a second during the gap, everything loads ok. If I just let the TZX play the CPC simply isn't ready to receive the data. Play the same file into an emulator and it's fine. It seems my real CPC needs a fraction more time to ready itself.
Quote from: ralferoo on 14:33, 10 January 14The emulator will almost certainly be behaving correctly in this regard - the pauses encoded on the CDT will match what's recorded on the tape.However, as you know, the CPC can control the tape motor and so between loading the loader and that doing the speedload, the tape will be switched off momentarily. Most loaders will turn the motor back on as literally the very first instruction so that it sounds like a click rather than a clunk, but it's not uncommon to have the motor off for a longer period especially if the loader is written in BASIC.
Quote from: arnoldemu on 19:36, 10 January 14Have you considered that it may be the tape motor or the tape belt that may not be good?I don't know how these fake tapes work, but if they control the output speed based on the tape motor then this could be the issue.
