Datassette Interface v1.0

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 Gutmeier.

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 Forum, also allowing Thomas to get feedback, suggestions and requests from the CreatiVision community.

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 computer/console system!
