    My little project lately has been trying to work with the MIDI port on model 1 Wondermegas. And I had some success tonight!

    This is pretty cool! I wonder though, why did the Wondermega include a MIDI port to begin with?

    Another update! It's playing back MIDI files, but needs some more work overall...

    researching SMPS sound drivers
    This is really awesome, IMO!

    As someone who loves 1990s MIDI gear and who's been doing a bit MegaDrive programming in the past, I find this really exciting.
    Thanks a lot for researching this nearly lost piece of the MegaDrive history.
    (I'm really tempted to get back into MD programming now.)
