The Snark Barker – a SoundBlaster 1.0 Clone #VintageComputing #SoundBlaster @TubeTimeUS

Via Tube Time on Twitter who was pleased to announce the release of the Snark Barker, a replica of the original Sound Blaster 1.0 card originally released in 1989 — nearly 30 years ago!

The Snark Barker is a 100% compatible clone of the famed SB 1.0 “Killer Card” sound card from 1989. It implements all the features, including the digital sound playback and recording, Ad Lib compatible synthesis, the joystick/MIDI port, and the CMS chips (which are actually Philips SAA1099 synthesizer devices).

All of the components are readily available. In the bill of materials, Mouser part numbers are listed where they are available. Chips not available from Mouser can be purchased from a variety of sources in China.

The schematic and the Bill of Materials links.

Please note that the 0.1″ header pins are not listed on the BOM. They are standard breakaway headers (both single and double row). Jumper shunts are also not listed on the BOM. Fab files

Board dimensions are 9.1 x 4.2 inches. When ordering the board, you may want to specify a card edge bevel (fairly cheap!) and selective gold plating (expensive!) depending on your needs. The solder mask color can be whatever you like, but hot pink is preferred.
