I was curious and now I seem to have found a device that does exactly that! http://www.kentonuk.com/products/items/ … host.shtml

Long ago, someone made a master sync device that would ouput sync signals for everything, LSDj, Nanoloop, Sync24 and MIDI. I'll see if I can dig it up.

Awesome!

Long ago, I made a prototype of a MIDI-sync device that would connect a Game Boy with a (real, non-USB) MIDI cable and a standard link cable. It synced fine with my RY-8 drumcomputer. However, when I made a few more of these, I found that some didn't work stable, probably because it was using the PIC's internal oscillator as UART clock source. When I have the time to, I'll work on that device again.

I think this is what I remembered:

yeah, that thing is great and works really reliable, also the code is easily adaptable to clock the monotribe via trigger pulses (if you remember my comment on your blog...)

check out this diy solution
http://www.circuitsathome.com/mcu/inter … ost-shield

the code he provides seems a little quirky, but my arduino-genuis-partner-in-crime got it working.
lots of fun with the LPK arpeggiator and the monotribe smile


but it needs an arduino, so you might as well use an arduinoboy and have the same functionality with the same amount of boxes.....


...as i'm writing this, i notice that this works the other way round ( controller->USB->MIDI), what we would need is MIDI->USB->instrument.... should be possible, though. Sadly, i lack the skills.

nitro2k01 sayz: I just did some blatant mod abuse to edit the quote so it says boomlinde and the link works.

Will it work with any cart running mgb?

Sorry, I read the website, it says supports mGB. Forget my question!
But Peter's question remains, can I use -any- cart?

This seems great! I can't use it with the AMiga, but I could work it out with the PC.

I'm being unable to access the shop though (redirection loop error). How much does it cost?

Yes, you can use any cart. mGB currently can't save on nanoloop one carts, so a flashcart would be the better solution.

Excellent!
What's going on with the shopping site though? I'd like to know the price for this thing smile

The shop sometimes doesn't work in Chrome due to it's 1999-style frame-based design. Emptying the cache can help.

The price is 7 euro incl. shipping and excl. VAT (EU only).

So currently means that this is something that may happen in the future?

Oh yeah thanks, it's Chrome I am using.
7 EURO?????????
What a bargain. Buying one now.

Also: its probably cheap enough to just buy the new one and give the old one away to a friend.. can a user upgrade it themselves?

No, it's a USB client and requires a USB host. I guess there are devices that provide USB-MIDI host functionality to connect multiple clients. But that's just a guess, I don't know.

Ah well, It's still awesome tongue
I'll just keep using my arduinoboy for syncing then.

I have one question. On the website it says "Load additional 32k ROMs, such as mGB, on nanoloop one." But mgb is 64k isnt it?

The upper 32k are empty.
