• Cartridge ID: EMS - GB SMART CARD

• Rare feature: This cartridge basically rip off the USB enable Bleep Bloop cart concept. Cartridge capacity= 64 MB divided in two memory slots of 32 MB.
Why do I receive at GAMEBOYcarts.com:
I would never forget how many issues I got in the past with my 32 MB SMART cartridge series from EMS… disgusting battery issues, some stability issues in live mode, etc. My experience with EMS cartridges was terrible UNTIL NOW. When I discovered their USB 64 MB on the kitsch bent store I said ” WTF”… they ripped off the Bleep Bloop cartridge design concept, but you know 64 MB of capacity makes me smile . I can’t understand why EMS never worked seriously to create a better cartridge system before the USB cartridge success, seems like right now they know how important is the new technology resources like a simple USB port mixed up with old school cartridge concept for LSDJ users or gamers, Do you remember the T-REX 32 MB smart card transfer-er?… WTS!!!
In my personal opinion I believe in the Bleep Bloop efforts creating a great, stable and nice looking modern cartridge. My friend Ralp from: Distortled Box says: “Well the huge difference between Bleep Bloop and EMS cartridge is just the capacity 16 MB vs. 64 MB, think about people like me… I have lot of song data to carry on each gig… I really respect the Bleep Bloop work, but 64 MB it’s so cool man!!!”. The positive feeling in all of this is the fact of how many developers are now working to offer their cartridges for LSDJ users.
I tested the EMS cart for about 6 hours and is really good & stable. The Software is also pretty easy to use working with Parallels Desktop for Mac users, also bringing support for PC users running WIN XP, WIN VISTA, or WIN 7. The battery replacement system is the same used on the USB Bleep Bloop carts> without soldering .
