First of all let's make sure you know that this is NOT an
official CreatiVEmu release. This is a homebrew product designed
and produced by an Austrian CreatiVision fan, whose name is Thomas
THE STORY SO FAR...
Most owners of the CreatiVision console usually want to make use
of their BASIC cartridges by loading and saving freely their listings to
cassette tapes. Unluckily, finding an original CreatiVision cassette tape
module is not very easy, and sometimes it may even turn quite expensive.
Moved by the desire to load "dumps" of CreatiVision tapes (the
ones in WAV samples available on the
Releases/Software page) on his
own console, talented Thomas Gutmeier made studied a way to connect his PC
audio card to the console, and succeed almost immediately!
The progresses were published on the
also allowing Thomas to get feedback, suggestions and requests from the
The interface then evolved in order to allow loading and saving
from/to cassette tapes through a cheap Commodore 1530 Datassette unit
(the one made for VIC-20, C64 and C128).
Lastly Thomas designed a professional packaging with casing, sticker and
manual, and numbered each copy individually.
Even though it's not a CreatiVEmu team product, we guys at
CreatiVEmu are truly happy to "sponsor" Thomas' product, because we feel it's
a precious item for all CreatiVision fans and collectors, and a starting point
for everyone wanting to develop more interfaces for our beloved
