I have a Saleae logic pro 8, but no 6100At some point it'd be great to work with someone with a 6100 to put a bus analyzer on the port and try to figure out what's going wrong. This may be a TashTalk problem, and that worries me...
Thank you cheesestraws!Just going to link here to @daanvdl's new thread for the AirTalks they're building: https://68kmla.org/bb/index.php?thr...-and-play-localtalk-dongle.43838/#post-478876
Now that they've successfully built some and beta-tested the files for me, I'm officially making some noise that this is open hardware under the CERN-OHL-S-2.0. The hardware files are at https://github.com/cheesestraws/airtalk/tree/main/hardware but you might be well advised to wait for @daanvdl 's instructions, which are less perfunctory than mine. Go forth and build some!
No, You will need a crosscable: https://airtalk.shop/?product=apple-modem-cableIs this the correct sort of cable required? I tried using the 8-pin to 8-pin cable that went with my Apple MIDI Interface, but that doesn't seem to work.

EDIT: Doesn't seem like it.
I have straight thru ones but I have them clearly labelled as such.All DIN serial cables are crossovers. The cable from the tone module should work. Strange it doesn't.
The straight through ones aren't for using as serial though are they? Or am I being daftI have straight thru ones but I have them clearly labelled as such.
I use the same cable for an imagewriter II, airtalk, and MIDI module; a crossover.

Oh, anything that uses a din cable that isn't a RS422 cable could be wired differently. But any mac serial cable should be compatible.I've seen straight through ones sold as serial, irritatingly. My only theory is that some samplers use it or something?
It might be something else in my setup, but it's my current candidate. It could also just be broken!All DIN serial cables are crossovers. The cable from the tone module should work. Strange it doesn't.
I didn't either! HahaDidn't realise you were short of serial cables or I'd have sent you a spare! Oh well.
My (flimsy) recollection is that modems used the straight through cables, consistent with the (annoying in my opinion) DTE (computer) vs. DCE (peripheral) designations. Printers and many other peripherals used crossover cables. Point-to-point LocalTalk between two Macs also can use a crossover cable.I've seen straight through ones sold as serial, irritatingly. My only theory is that some samplers use it or something?
Just curious - are you doing this with a single AirTalk (on the Plus side?) or a pair (one each end)?My 2010 iMac is talking to my Macintosh Plus.
Ooo... that's what I'd like to be able to achieve. I had several stabs at getting this scenario working, but failed. Pls share your secret recipe!Just the one, and then networking with Mini vMac.
Oh yes, you did mention that, didn't you? I will try again with a physical connection when I have a chance! (Router's in a another room...)Is the iMac on wifi or wired ethernet?
