It is now near 100%. - Pseudo hi-res ZX81 displays would appear with the top line a couple of pixels to the rig...

Re: Is this a ZX81 recording or not?

Link to the quieter recordings below though. Thanks. I'll try to dig out the actual tape to take a pic of the label too. Are these recordings all from this tape? https://sinclairzxworld.com/viewtopic.php?p=38772#p38772 tk3 contains R09_0007.wav and R09_0008.wav tk4 contains R09_0006.wav and R09_000...

Still worth re-recording it and posting it here as might be possible, and maybe try a different cassette player. It might be better than before and might allow some information to be recovered.

Re: EightyOne emulator may have bug with WAV generating

I created wav files using 3 methods: - MADN_A = Type SAVE "MADN" and record using the Wave Manager - MADN_B = Auto-convert from the Tape Manager - MADN_C = Create using the WinTZX utility The main difference seems to be the spacing between bit encodings.

Re: EightyOne emulator may have bug with WAV generating

I can create a .wav file but it cannot be loaded into a real TS1000 or a real ZX81. All other .wav files that were created by EightyOne (about 8 of them) work with no problem. When I convert this particular one (the one for madn.bas) using an old 1999 tool, ZXC.EXE (which created a .RAW and then Au...
