>Quite right about the RZ1! It was/is a beautiful beastie.

Not my area, primarily drums myself, but I used to hear praises from some musicians for some of the Casio 1980s era stuff being better quality made. I didn't really pay attention to what items though. Only non-drum item, I knew what the high praises were for was DX-7 ....all the other items could have acronyms etc. and I wouldn't know what instrument it was for compared to Zildjian cymbals or Paiste there...I knew my stuff. ;-)

>Glad I'm not the only one pleasantly surpised to see this working in MAME.

I am really impressed that this is considered up and running even though there is still a to-do list.


Casio RZ-1

Sampling drum machine

Sound ROM info:

Each ROM chip holds 1.49s of sounds and can be opened as raw
PCM data: signed 8-bit, mono, 20,000 Hz.

* Sound A: Toms 1~3, Kick, Snare, Rimshot, Closed Hi-Hat, Open Hi-Hat,
and Metronome Click (in that order).

* Sound B: Clap, Ride, Cowbell, and Crash (in that order).

CHAIN/BEAT at startup causes the system to go into a RAM test.

- Metronome
- Cassette
- Audio input

A couple status of other equipment still wip. The TB-303 in working shape would be my thing.....but so would a working Konami Drum Mania is also what I am hoping to see.


Casio CZ-101

Digital Synthesizer

- To get the display to show something, our uPD7810 core needs to
output the full port value even if the port is set as input (port a).
- Currently seems to hang while processing the serial ports (midi). Our
uPD7810 core is lacking the externally clocked serial mode.


** subclass of hh_ucom4_state (includes/hh_ucom4.h, drivers/hh_ucom4.cpp) **

Roland TB-303 Bass Line, 1982, designed by Tadao Kikumoto
* NEC uCOM-43 MCU, labeled D650C 133
* 3*uPD444C 1024x4 Static CMOS SRAM
* board is packed with discrete components

- still too much to list here
