Hi,

I am a korean programmer gomwing.
I have been developing MSX software & hardwares for a long time.
but my english skill is not so good. so my activity have been in korean MSX forum.
but, today i am participated in this forum and introduce some interesting things.

I recently am interesed in MSX midi. but midi is only exclusive property of turbo-r GT.
some midi expasion pack of MSX 2+ or turbo-r ST is restricted. and not so easy to use.
also, I couldn't get mu-pack.. todays it is very rare item, too.

I have only turbo-r ST. so i worked to use MIDI device. (developing 2 years)

finally, i am developed a upgraded midi interface (aka v(nu)-pack)

1. compatible to Mu-pack.
in turbo-r GT - adding additional 16 channels - total 32 channel MIDI output
in turbo-r ST - 16channel midi and midi basic extension - 'call music' command is used to activate MIDI in MSX-BASIC
in any other MSX - 16channel midi and midi basic extension too!! (original mu-pack is not working on other msx except turbo-r)

2. enhanced compatibility
support MIDI music in 'illusion city' game.
original Mu-pack did't work on this game. only turbo-r GT users hear MIDI musics
but v-pack support this game and select FM music and MIDI music

3. extend 32 channels on any other MSXes without turbo-r GT
recently, i succeeded in developing 32channel extensions on my turbo-r ST( with my another midi interfaces)

anyone interested ?

Are people going to be able to buy this cartridge from you? In that case it's quite news worthy.
But I've to correct you on the GT is the only MSX with MIDI. It's the only MSX with MSX-MIDI, but there are quite some other MIDI interfaces around. MIDI-PAC isn't even in the list yet.

Sorry for my poor english translation.
I have turbo-r ST.
At first, I want to get turbo-r GT. but It is very rare and expensive. so i decided to seek mu-pack.
because It is the only GT compatible MIDI interface ever made.
But It was the rarest thing. I coudn't get mu-pack. (it is more rare then turbo-r GT)
so I studied MIDI interface and made a new interface only for me.

But If there is anyone interested in it, there is no reason not to sell
Because I am not fluent in english, i am worrying about replying the order request.
thanks

Maybe someone in Europe could distribute for you. There are some cartridgebuilders/sellers who might find this interesting. Since I'm not one of them and have no clue how it/they work (build under licence/buy batches/etc). If you're open for it and one of them reads this news and gets interested, world wide sales could become easy for you.
