Black Hardware / ADB SoundBox to old-style keyb...
Last post by mattsoft - August 04, 2019, 05:54:09 pm
I have a couple of NeXTstation Monos with the original style keyboards and mice. To run this, I've been using a sound board from MegaPixel display connected to a VGA monitor.

Recently, I picked up a nice SoundBox for cheap, later to realize it was an ADB variety. DOH!

Is there any adapter or easy way to replace the ADB din with the older style DIN so I can connect the OG keyboard and mouse? I can obviously put my non-ADB sound board into the SoundBox but I was hoping to have 2 NeXTs running simultaneously.

Does anyone want to trade a non-ADB sound board for an ADB sound board? :)

Looks like its a digital to analogue converter.

found the following

" Computer Input: if MIDI Is used, then the computer Input is a MIDI interlace for the computer. (A commonly available piece of hardware that costs less than $200.00.) If audio such as live sound is used, an audio digitizer, (a digital microphone) is needed. An alternative to the simple digital microphone is a multiple channel audio digitizer such as the Dazzl A/D board, which will allow the performance events in the program to be generated from multiple channels of sound, as in alive sound board situation, with each instrument being assigned a different channel."

Ref in "next on campus spring 1991"

Dazzl Model 16/12 Analog to Digital
Converter An add-in board with 16
single-ended or 8 differential channels, a maximum sampling rate of 200
KHz, and a centronics-compatible
parallel port. Dazzl, Inc. (309) 674-

Hello Mr. Rob Blessin,

Would you happen to have Workshop OpenStep?
If so, how much are you selling this for?

Thank you!

I'm pretty sure I sold you that Pyro D maybe what, a decade ago?   I've actually found the original box and manual as well as the original CPU, and they should go do you.  Did I sell you the Nitro as well?  I forget. PM me.

I received another 68040 and dropped it in; no luck.

(Well, at least I have a processor upgrade for my LC575 now...)

A surplus HP keyboard I picked up does the trick - Model HP KB-0316 (Silver and black PS/2) if anybody else has this issue.

The installer doesn't like my CDROM - gets further along when I copy the ISO to a hard drive partition and boot that. It then dies trying to format the new partition for install. There a max size or something that might cause that? Does it have to be SCSI ID6 that gets installed?

Owning a Windows 10 computer since a few weeks: is there a NeXT screensaver for Win 10?

Quote from: eagle on February 27, 2018, 10:53:03 pmAh, these are cool, but not what I thought they were.  Are there any ports of the old NeXT screen savers?

I tried to keep up with patching the default screensaver with the NeXT logo, but they keep changing it in subtle ways so it breaks and is harder to patch:

I have also tried to replicate the fading cube in quartz composer with limited success. May have to dredge it up.
