Tube64 is a slim 100x100mm C64 in tube form, with MIDI interface and 14 RGB LEDs for automatic SID Effects, or for manually control (Basic/Assembler)

Included are 10 boards:

- Power (12V, S-VIDEO, placeholder for optional HDMI Out)

- Connections (Userport, Tapeport, 2x Gameports, Floppy/Serial Port)

- Interface


- RAM (SRAM Adapter comaptible)

- ROMs

- Video

- Sound (3 SID Sockets)


- Top

At the top is the expansion port (vertical), so that a C64 module can be plugged in there vertically, as well as a controller chip with WS2811 RGB LEDs. The individual RGB LEDs can be controlled by a simple POKE command or via various selectable modes.

A Raspierry Pi Zero can be plugged directly onto the connections board, so that a Pi1541 drive is then "on-board".

Due to the built-in MIDI ports (DATEL compatible), this C64 is of course the ideal music machine with which you can immediately make music in the smallest of spaces.
