[sdiy] Juno 60 woes

Hi Richie,

Thanks for your response.

I think the interrupt is being generated (its active low and the line is at ground level).

It seems that the INT is not being cleared by the CPU. Only the top octave (roughly) of keys seem to do anything. but they don't seem to relate to frequency correctly, they just play a frequency.
