The PlaySoniq multi-expander for MSX computers is the successor of Franky. It not only features the Audio/Video processor from the Sega Master System II consoles, but also a powerful Spartan FPGA processor running at 80Mhz, A Commodore 64/128 audio processor (SID), 16 Megabytes of memory and a switchable PAL/NTSC encoder (Analog RGB and CVBS output supported). SCC and SCC-I hardware emulation is build in the FPGA. The PlaySoniq has advanced features such as PSG over SCC redirection (play all your MSX PSG game music and effects over SCC), adjustable VDP addressing for easier porting of e.g. ColecoVision software, Mirroring of MSX1 video output over the PlaySoniq video output, switchable native memory support (8 megabit) for Sega game playing and much more. Also, the FPGA processor dynamically insert MSX code in Sega programs. This means that OPLL (MSX Music/FM-PAC) support, keyboard and MSX joystick support is supported without the need to run converter software first. The PlaySoniq features a total of 13 sound channels. Software for loading sega games and playing SID files is provided.
This great new MSX expander can be obtained for 150 euro. A standard video cable can be provided for 15 euro. Custom made cables can be ordered for 25 euro. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain yours!

Modulon is our 4-port slotexpander, with a twist. The 3 ports on the top can be switched on and off, and the enclosure is made with an 3D-printer. For each port a volume adjuster is present, to balance music when working with multiple soundchips. Modulon can also be stacked with another Modulon, to give three primary slots and four IO/slots in total. Each Modulon can be externally powered with an 5 volts ac-adapter (not included).
