The PAK68/3 with FRAK has Atari TT like real Fastram. That works only with patched TT TOS 3.06 on the PAK.

My PAK68/2 with TOS 2.06 boots fine with the MonSTer when the MonSTer has TOS 1.04 selected but not boot when TOS 3.06 is on the PAK.

There a plans for a PAK68/2 with Magnum TT on one PCB. All with TOS 3.06 ...

Hi Alan, you mean all features from the MonSTer switch off except for the IDE feature ?

A only good IDE Interface would be nicer, I think ...

No, you said that the IDE doesn't work with PAK a few posts back.

I'm using the features with my PAK just fine.

I emailed Alan earlier today with the same question and the answer is 'in a few weeks' so hopefully not too long to wait :)

Are you a good person?

Greetings all, I am new to the world of ST. Got an STfm to primarily use for sequencing my MIDI gear as I am sick and tired of years and years of MIDI issues on PC/MAC.

I just signed up to see if this is still available?

Ive got an 520STfm and looking to upgrade to:

4MB Ram
TOS 2.06
IDE drives (CF)

You can get TOS 2.06, IDE and USB(!) for the 520 STfm with the combination of Lightning ST and Cloudy:
