  • Hello, Guest.

    With the recent attacks against members, and lack of care towards their mental health we have started a fundraiser to help fund the life saving charity the Samaritans. Without their support and efforts many people we know wouldn't be alive.

    If you're able to help, you can donate via our fundraiser on GoFundMe Link

    Thank you.

Thanks John! These are actually pictures I took of my MIDI adapter months ago, but I never got around to identifying everything on the board.

If anyone is interested in replicating the adapter, I can help make a schematic, but I don't really know what's the proper methodology for doing so. I have a multimeter and stuff.

What's it for? Is there any Dreamcast specific software that makes use of it?

Only one title, the Japanese O-to-i-re Dreamcast Sequencer software used it. You can connect a MIDI keyboard and create songs, sort of like a more advanced Mario Paint type of thing.

Yes, you could create songs with many of the bundled instruments and also capture directly from musical instruments with midi output. The songs where recorded on the VMU, I tested it a few years ago and recorded a small test.
