KIM-1 tool to convert byte code/assembler into wave file

a couple of weeks ago I have bought a KIM-1 on eBay. When it finally arrived, it turned on like a charm, but I had no cassette interface (or even a cassette player). Equally challenging: Anything I have coded, I could not save.
A recording program fixed the latter but I wanted to tryout Microchess and could not be really bothered to type in close to a 1000 byte codes.
Instead I wrote a web app that will convert any byte code or assembler listing you throw at it into a wave file that you then can play back into the KIM-1 just as if you would play a cassette back.
It works that well that I thought maybe there are some crazy ones like me that enjoy to use it from time to time. Also, it opens a great way to develop for the KIM-1 as you can edit you code, assemble and "kimpose" it one go.
