Quote from: spud on March 24, 2019, 10:11:18 amInstalled my card today (needed some force, and used the supplied cover to push the card in). Tried it only with Ghouls & Ghosts and Munt (MT 32 / CM 32 emulator) on my PC, but yes it works and it's really awesome!!!Next step is try the SC55 emulator
Quote from: spud on March 25, 2019, 08:56:15 pmSo far I have only tested MT/CM 32 emulation. It all worked pretty much out of the box really.MIDI interface I use: TIE MIDI 1i1o USB MIDI-interfaceBut your best bet is always go for the Roland USB-MIDI interface (at least that's what I'm told ), especially if you wanna do more with MIDI and music creation.CM/MT 32 emulation: MUNT: free at https://sourceforge.net/projects/munt/ You do need to source your own ROM files for it though.SC-55 emulation: https://www.roland.com/nl/products/sound_canvas_va/ Paid software (free trial i believe), still have to try this one
Quote from: spud on March 26, 2019, 02:22:56 amWith source your ROMs I mean:The MUNT software does not come with the Roland MT/CM 32 firmware, but is needed for the emulator to work. This firmware is still copyright material of Roland. So formally you'll need to grab it from a real MT/CM 32 you own. If you don't have such a device, you'll have to be "creative"
Quote from: amigo-mexicano on April 24, 2019, 07:44:11 amIs it true that these are no longer in production due to no chips available anymore?
Quote from: TD-Linux on May 09, 2019, 08:30:40 am...I've also been working on a FPGA based version of the card, which can be found in the fpga branch of the repository. I'm looking for a few testers of this card who can reflash new bitstreams onto a SPI flash.
Quote from: huggyone76 on May 09, 2019, 03:36:36 pmHi ! Is there a possibility to flash the fpga by jtag ? Or do the card need a real spi flasher ?On the first case I can help !
Quote from: TD-Linux on June 02, 2019, 12:33:58 pmAny comments about the physical fit of v1.1? I sized it rather conservatively, and could make some small tweaks before ordering v2.1.
Quote from: rkrenicki on June 04, 2019, 10:33:12 pmWhat board thickness are you using? I had good luck with 1.2mm instead of the default 1.6mm.

Do you know how thick the official boards are?I already get beveled edges... I've considered doing a V-shaped edge connector like some x68k cards have, but I think my board house would kill me if I attempted to have that beveled.
Quote from: vanpeebles on June 25, 2019, 08:16:10 pmNow everyone has midi cards, is there a midi file player?
Quote from: spud on July 23, 2019, 04:55:43 pmMaybe for some I'm continuing the blasphemy But now I turned my Raspberry Pi 3 in a Roland Sound module (emulator) running Munt and Q/FluidSynth for MT32 & GM respectively. Very acceptable for my requirements and much more compact than a PC I also have a Hifiberry DAC+ADC GPIO hat so I run the SoundFX in the Pi too which mixes it together with the midi music.
