This is a modern reproduction of the Newtech Model 6 Music Card for S-100 based machines. It looks nothing like the original, but is functionally identical.
The original board enabled anyone with an S-100 bus computer to produce music and sound effects. Applications include generating melodies, rhythms, sound effects, Morse code, touch-tone synthesis, etc. Its features included selectable output port address decoding, a latched 6-bit digital-to-analog converter, audio amplifier, speaker, volume control, and RCA phono jack for convenient connection to your home audio system.
The Newtech Model 6 Music Card Users Manual provides complete documentation and includes a BASIC Language program for writing musical scores and an 8080 Assembly Language routine for playing them.
Change in the Reproduction
- RCA jack replaced with a mono 1/8″ headphone jack
- Speaker disabled via jumper shunt and not by cutting wire jumper
