The Cambridge Z88 Software project was created by and for the "die-hard" users of the Cambridge Z88, the iPad of the 80s. Its object is to streamline the operating system, OZ, and build new Z88 applications by replacing the built-in ROM with a larger device. It also includes a Z88 emulator and debugging environment.

Giada is a minimal, hardcore audio tool for DJs and live performers. Just pick your sample, drop it in any channel, and start the show by using this tiny piece of software as a loop machine, drum machine, sequencer, live sampler, or effect (VST) host. Giada aims to be a compact and portable virtual device for production use and live sets.
