It houses a Meanwell RPT-60B. So you might be thinking that you're paying way too much, but you get a proper enclosure with a proper connector and so on. Not to mention a warranty!

Can confirm that A-Power is a PSU that is working well. :) The only issue is that the output cable is short (unlike the cable shown on the picture), but this was needed to lower the voltage drop.

Video is rock stable during floppy read and disk access (which fluctuates the +5v rail a little bit). Sound is also stable, just a bit noisy in the process.

I wonder why it's 61865 and not 61857 ( 2^16 / 2^(1/12) ). Maybe it's hand-edited to change the rounding? Either way, it's impressive, gotta love these coding tricks. :D

I recently removed that feature because it's not present in PT. To get the up/down cursor key to act faster in the pattern, you hold down left shift (fast) or left alt (faster). Like on PT on Amiga.
