  • Great price, but one thing to consider - the datasheet for this part shows you can go to a clock frequency of 8 MHz. However due to the BASIC compiler/assembler the instruction cycle time is considerably slower. Fastest high to low output transition I could achieve was 400 micro seconds at 8 MHz CPU clock. Trying to do something with MIDI (need 32 u-sec) but this chip is completely inadequate in this regard, maybe there's a way but I haven't found it yet. Guess I'm going to have to go with the assembly code & the standard PIC and cough up some cash for the programmer....

  • I'm interested in doing the same thing with the MIDI input.
    I have tried contacting the manufacturer of the chip to get a sample of the sounds on the chip, but no luck.
    If it were to sound decent I would strongly consider buying and giving it a shot....

No public wish lists :(
