From: email@example.com (Dick Dixon) Subject: 'Paramid' parallel-port MIDI interface
Date: Thu, 22 Jul 93 9:08:33 BST
This is a build-it-yourself MIDI interface adaptor for PC
parallel port. So far as I know, it will work with any
PC (I have tried it with four; 286, 386 and portables).
MIDI in, out and thru are provided, with signal monitoring
LEDs. The posted zip file includes a driver for DOS Cakewalk
standard, plus some 'C' code to test the interface.
Not recommended as a first project for previous non-techies,
but no particular snags in construction are anticipated.
It can be obtained thus:
