Two days ago our prototype PCB’s for the MIDI-PAC came in from China. Shipping took much longer than expected so unfortunately we can not show a working product yet at the Dutch MSX fair in Nijmegen tomorrow. We made some pictures of the first assembled board, cartridge and art for the cartridge so you can at least have a sneak peak:
We keep you posted about our developments. Now it’s time to work on the software again!
What does it do?
Please check our earlier post about this subject to find out: Supersoniqs announces MIDI-PAC
WoW!! this is a dream!!! ;D
How is this a dream of you, please explain 😉
news for this project?…
Hope on finishing the bootloader and msx upgrade program before the end of next week. After that i will ship the first proto types for evaluation/feedback.
Going to make some audio recordings next week to put on the webpage, so don’t forget to check the supersoniqs site 😉
This looks great. How much will it cost approx. and when can we order?
The cost of midi-pac will be determined after a few working proto’s have been released to developers, but it probably will have a nice price tag on it 😉
For now I need to finish the bootloader and the fm-pac flash capability, after which those midi-pac’s can be updated through my web-page!
I did finish the Bootloader, so it’s now possible to update your Midi-Pac with newer released versions.
Also implemented the original instrument support yesterday, so the firmware is coming very close to completion 😀
Very good news! I’m beside myself 😉
The implementation of those original voices did take a lot more time then expected. It was a giant leap when I finally came up with a reasonable good working algorithm. Sounds a lot better know 😀
Wait until you hear the last version of the software at work 😛
Do I need to connect the midi-pac to a midi module to enjoy it? Or can I connect it to a amplifier?
Yes, you will have to connect it to a midi device.
