Trigger +5V to control MIDI?

Post by DontGoToCollege » Sun Jan 24, 2016 10:08 am

I bought the drum machine of my childhood - the BOSS DR-220A on eBay.

Is there an effective and economical way to convert the +5V trigger out to control MIDI?

I really like the internal timing of the 220 and I'd like to have it control some of my synths.

This might help if you do modular...
