I have a Turbo-R A1GT and for MIDI compatible games like Illusion City of Moon light Saga, how can I mix the internal audio with the external MIDI? I am using an RGB cable so the AV multi out is already being used. I don't see an earphone jack anywhere...

I just connected all MSX sound outputs to one big mixer... I don't think there's another way if you also add other (stereo) outputs like MoonSound.

That's about the only way indeed...
Other option is to use some double to single cinch converters in your audio cables...

I had the same problem. I patched the RGB cable to have an extra audio-wire going to my amplifier.

OK, sounds like the best way is to add RCA audio out from my RGB cable to go into the Roland SC-55. Then from the SC-55 to my audio amp.

How do the FM carts work with this then? If I got one of those Brazilian FM carts would it automatically route the internal MSX audio through its RCA outputs?

Shou: no single cartridge can reroute internal audio to its own outputs... There's no sound-out on the cartridge slot.

The sound of the FM cart is mixed with the sound of the internal sound-chip. It is put on the audio-pin of the AV-output connector. Though, turboR has a build-in msx-music so I don't see the purpose of inserting an fm-pac in the slots. Unless the Brazilian FM cart is not an fm-pac/msx-music (clone) but something more powerful.

Tongue -- </flamebait>. But those cartridges are pretty useless for games like IC, since the game won't recognize them.

Probably, if you mean the normal PSG+FM/AM sounds. The first 6 channels into one RCA output and the later 3 Channels/ 5 Drum kits + PSG (normal MSX Sound) into the other RCA. The FM only sound is when the cartridge use the disable PSG option.

It was reported to work very well into Panasonic machines.
