I finally received this cheap USB MIDI interface recently and after some efforts to make it work i realized that the problem is not at MSX side but mostly likely at this cheap device side. I googled for device VID and PID and found which chip it uses and found that link above. I opened this device and it looks exactly as you see on the above link. So i'll need some soldering to make it work... not a driver problem btw. Frustrating, but as was said "you get what you paid for". Really cheap... ;( don't buy it ever until you want some soldering ;)

Does anyone have working midislav.dsk image ?

The one hosted on cx5m.net say 720K but the actual image is 360K (and it seems that it has issues or so, because when i get directory listing by "dir" command, it says "429056 bytes free" so it looks like being a cut off 720K image actually). It didn't work from Nextor when i tried the disk emulation, none of MFRSCC+SD neither Carnivore2 run the software - the computer just freezes. I dunno maybe i do something wrong? Please help - i got stuck with it

I can’t answer your question about Midislav, however you could try out Tiny Sound Module.

The built-in software of the SFG-05 has similar capabilities.

I have tried TSM and it works fine, didn't try built-in software yet, going to give it a try now, but i'm still curious about Midislav. I have tried to compile that source code which is published together with disk image but it seems to miss some crucial parts, too many 'Label not found' (around 60 identifiers/labels are missing). I was thinking on disassembling the missing parts but first i need to make it work Smile

Nevermind, sorry for the noise. Midislav seems doesn't work with SFG-01 and I tried it with real SFG-01 inserted in side slot of YIS503IIIR, but when i tried it with SFG clone, it started fine Face
