HELP PLEASE!

Post by tips4me »

Hi ZX fans!

I am from argentina and when I was a kid I owned a CZERWENY SPECTRUM (Argentine clone)

I found one of my old cassettes where I used record the images I made with a basic program using my joystick.

The problem I am having is that my Mac ZX emulator does not recognise the information I digitilized from the cassette to WAV.
HERE IT IS
https://www.dropbox.com/s/7evwwfztjfrr2 ... m.wav?dl=0


If some can figure out how to load this file and send me the picture I made more than 30 years ago you will be my HERO!!!!!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!

Hi :D Welcome aboard!

This is a bit of a challenge. The tape has been recorded at a very high volume level, and there is a lot of clipping / distortion of the signal. It is also a fast-load - do you know if the clone computer was compatible with the TK85 fast load routines?

I don't think that's a fast-load, it sounds like a normal Speccy save to me... but it's very poor quality. Is there any way you could record the WAV file again with the cassette volume turned down a bit? :)

I suggest to adjust tape deck azimut and lower the volume...
