At one point in time, Little John was working on an add-on sound/music
cart for the CoCo (as well as a great many other items). I haven't heard
from him in a very long time, so I can only assume his health problems
may have worsened.

> A good Sound card for the Coco would be nice. Coco always needed it. I never tried the Speech & Sound cart from Tandy, so I don't know how it sounded. I may try to grab one off e-bay the next time I see one. I know Speech Systems also did the Symphony 12 cart that had 12 voices! I would love to get my hands on one.

With all our "hardware hackers" here... this would be a nice project. I'm sure there's some chips out there that would work well with the Coco's rom port.
