Additional midi in port

3 posts in this topic

I have a question regarding an additional midi in port: I have seen the midimerger project and also the IIC midi that provide additional midi in for the midibox and I have seen that both use the RA4 port of the PIC...this is my question: If I use this port of my midibox64 for driving a 6n138 ecc connected to another midiin port, does it works or I need another PIC for doing this?

Bye

The MIDImerger project uses a software implemented UART which requires so much CPU time, that nothing else can run in parallel. So, it is not possible to use the same approach for any MIOS application - it just needs a second core which scans the second MIDI In.

A MBHP_IIC_MIDI extension would require some changes in the MB64 firmware. So, in theory this would be possible, but there is no ready made solution available yet

Best Regards, Thorsten.

Thank you very much!

I understand, I think the best way for me is using the midimerger with another PIC.
