O.K., thanks for the information!


I'm new to the forum! Perhaps you can help me out...I wanna make chiptunes with real hardware. I've heard a few demos from the Twisted Electrons hapiNES which seems to copy the original NES, but I would prefer to work with a real Nintendo NES controlled with midi.

I have 3 questions:

1.) For controlling the NES with Midi there seems to be only two possibilities: the Midines (wich is quite expensive and used) or the ChipMaestro.  Are those really the only 2 possibilities to control it with Midi?

2.) In a lot of games they have great drum samples on the DPCM-Channel. I assume that some of these sounds are on the midines, is there any other hardware which can load the drum samples into the NES?

3.) Are there any modifications on the audio-line-output available so that you could get 4 different mono outputs (one for each channel)?

Thanks a lot!
