The converter is built around Colin Fraser's excellent m2d2m source code (found here), which was compiled and programmed to a PIC12F629 microchip. So yeah, it decodes the MIDI stream and listens exclusively for the start/stop/continue codesnathanscribe wrote:I'm guessing that if you feed it anything other than pure clock, it sh*ts the bed. To do it properly you'd need to extract clock pulses, start, stop and continue from your MIDI - which would either require more circuitry, or a processor of some kind. I can't make out what chips you've got in there... so if you are using something programmable already, ignore me!
You know, I think I'm just gonna build a few and throw them up online. I'll post links when I have something to sell.
