USBhost-64: 16-bit tape imaging tool on C64 works fine!

I had to write the tool twice from scratch, but dumping tapes directly on a C64 using 16-bit wide samples at CPU frequency is now possible and reliable thanks to the use of USBhost-64 🙂

Bear in mind that a PC is not involved in the dumping process. I simply connect USBhost-64 to the C64 and load my program. Then I put the tape to dump in a datassette and end up with a DMP file on the USB drive!
