Hi RyuX,
I've tested your unit out with both USB and DIN MIDI connections, so I am confident that it *can* work.

Now, did you set the jumper on the GenMDM? If so, did you unplug the USB before doing so? And if so, once you connect the GenMDM to the SEGA (without USB but with the jumper) do you find that the sound comes on?

Speaking of time, I'm really looking forward to having some time to add the CSM stuff to GenMDM! big_smile heart

Oh, I've already fixed the issue - I was shifting left by one too many bits, that's all! Just a typo smile

Yes, I know the bug you mean and actually I don't think of it as a bug at all but rather a feature to be used creatively... which I have done with some of my releases.

One man's trash is another man's treasure etc.

Ah yes - the secondary decay rate is my mistake, I have fixed it now and it will be included with genmdm 103.

This will also be updated in the editors and in the docs.

Thanks for pointing this out! My apologies.

The mute does not actually mute - i mean, the low level output is normal, at least with all hardware i have tested with.

I will look at the code for the secondary decay rate now!

Yes, I have such a thing planned.

There are two ROM arrays that store sample data:

The first stores the actual samples as one long, 8 bit unsigned list

The second stores the length of each individual sound in samples, so as to be able to read as offsets into the long sample array and retrieve each sound separately.

Would it be of use for me to find these two arrays in the binary?

Fantastic work.

The SN76489 USB MIDI 101 firmware includes the following changes:
• Support for traditional 5 PIN DIN Plug via an optional MIDI input circuit

Download the firmware here: http://milkcrate.com.au/_other/download … DI_101.ino

This firmware update changes the circuit of the Teensy and SN76489, as follows:

==== DATA ====
Teensy PORTB 0 = Teensy Digital Pin 0 -->  SN76489 Pin 10 (Data 0)
Teensy PORTB 1 = Teensy Digital Pin 1 -->  SN76489 Pin 11 (Data 1)
Teensy PORTB 2 = Teensy Digital Pin 2 -->  SN76489 Pin 12 (Data 2)
Teensy PORTB 3 = Teensy Digital Pin 3 -->  SN76489 Pin 13 (Data 3)
Teensy PORTB 4 = Teensy Digital Pin 13 -->  SN76489 Pin 15 (Data 4)
Teensy PORTB 5 = Teensy Digital Pin 14 -->  SN76489 Pin 1 (Data 5)
Teensy PORTB 6 = Teensy Digital Pin 15 -->  SN76489 Pin 2 (Data 6)
Teensy PORTB 7 = Teensy Digital Pin 4 --> SN76489 Pin 3 (Data 7)

Teensy PORTD 0 = Teensy Digital Pin 5 --> SN76489 Pin 5 (Write Enable)
Teensy PORTD 2 = Teensy Digital Pin 7 --> Receive data from MIDI INPUT CIRCUIT

Teensy Ground --> SN76489 Pin 8 (ground)
Teensy Ground --> SN76489 Pin 6 (Output Enable)
Teensy Ground --> Xtal Osc Ground
Teensy 5V --> SN76489 Pin 16
Xtal Osc Signal --> SN76489 Pin 14 (Clock)

==== AUDIO OUTPUT ====
SN76489 Pin 7 --> Audio Output Signal
SN76489 Pin 8 --> Audio Output Ground

MIDI Input DIN 5 Pin 4 --> 4n28 Pin 1
MIDI Input DIN 5 Pin 5 --> 4n28 Pin 2
N4148 Diode (positive anode) --> 4n28 Pin 1
N4148 Diode (negative cathode) --> 4n28 Pin 2
4n28 Pin 6 --> 100k resistor (leg 1)
100k resistor (leg 2) --> Teensy Ground
4n28 Pin 5 --> Teensy PORTD 2 = Teensy Digital Pin 7
4n28 Pin 5 --> 3.3k resistor (leg 1)
3.3k resistor (leg 1) --> Teensy 5V
4n28 pin 4 --> Teensy Ground

Correct, so it will be "in tune with itself" but out of tune with other things.

The 1MHz crystal means a much lower pitch range, which is AWESOME

I think I'll rewrite the code for pitch --> frequency conversion derived from a master clock.

I'll also port it to Arduino (will be super simple).
