DivIDE Type Device for Amstrad CPC 464

Does anyone know if there is a DivIDE equivalent Type Device for the Amstrad CPC 464? I have had a look but can't find anything.

You can get an external floppy drive and fit a floppy emulator

Well yes but they usually come with an FD-1 Amstrad external floppy drive.

External drives + interface for the Amstrad CPC464 are rare but not impossible to find.

The SYMBiFACE II (which was €120) is sold out with no plans for a new run and they never come up for sale.

Thanks for your help guys, doesn't look like there is a viable device for sale yet, I found a command line app called cpc2tape that can convert dsk images to WAV file so I think that is the way to go for now.

If you add an external tape input you can use OTLA to accelerate the audio to many times faster than original recordings. Store them as tiny MP3's on an MP3 player or your phone.
