!? we are speaking about the recording, no ? so MAS uses the parallel 8-bit
and not the serial line to get the MP3 streams to write on memory/disk !? I
don't remember having seen in the MAS datasheet it is possible to use the
serial line for recording. Having an uncompressed data is still possible (if
we suppose the sh1 is still fast enough despite of its 12 Mhz) uniquely if
we could have the WAV plugin of Micronas which must be not free. Development
is beyond scope since Micrometall clearly stated that no development tool
can be delivered at the user end. Even if we could pay them, we cannot
escape from signing a NDA.
