Buddha: Perhaps it'd be an idea to add an USB-port that would be able to receive e.g. multiple MIDI-devices. That way, the cart can be operated from outside the MSX, from some high-level language or DAW. See, the problem you'll encounter is software support. On MSX there's not much choice other than an asm coder, but on PC's any high-level language with e.g. MIDI support could prove to be enough to make the most of it. And such languages aren't out of reach of musicians either. Doesn't even have to be using the MIDI format, at long as there is a way to communicate bits of info to the MSX. Then you can store that info inside that cartridge in order to get played. So, at least there has to be a player that supports everything. But usually that's much less work than a fully operational tool.

USB will not be a problem. I am using that to download code to the SDRAM at the moment.
So done.

I've got a Turbo Chameleon 64. Imho, the best option: it allows to connect the C64 to a VGA monitor.

well even though I am using a simple VGA output for debugging purposes at the moment I was not considering leaving that in.
The reason is that I will not have enough resources to do anything fancy with it, like sprites ..blitter ..etc..
just plain 640x480 with 4096 colors memory mapped vram.

I think you if go the graphics route then one should dedicate all resources towards it..

That will be another project, cannot do everything at once Wink
