Release id #201357 : DS/DJ-2000 mk1 Alpha

The feature list is already more than I could've wished for! But since Tero asked for ideas... clock sync input and output would be nice.

Just to mention some implementations (with source code available):

SID-wizard can send MIDI clock out (using a Datel cart, Kerberos etc.) but I haven't succeeded to get it send a simple 4/4 pattern, so either I'm doing it wrong or it's buggy.

Mario64 did simple clock-in sync stuff using parallel port. Code is in the video description here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZ5j8Se6Y6s

That sync certainly looks simple enough...

Of course the world of MIDI is within my interests, and not just sync: There's controllers, turning SID data into MIDI notes etc. But that's something for the future and possibly even a whole other project.

In the latest defMON version I simply use the normal serial connection, with a normal serial cable, to connect to C64s running defMON, to keep them in sync. 4-mat used something similar in his DJ software after that. It is simple, and it works.

Hey, this may be the last time to present your killer ideas for the upcoming Beta version....

I have given sync some thought, and maybe it will appear in some form later, but for now I'm just trying to make the BPM correct and easier to use, so you should be able sync stuff "close enough" by choosing the same tempo.

The Beta version already includes:
* Using REU as SID buffer
* When no REU, allocate *all* available memory as SID buffers
* Turbo support, C128 detection
* The main program is able to relocate itself (!)

This is not yet implemented, but I'm also planning to make a standalone player version (append a SID file to end of the PRG and it becomes a standalone player).
