Re: Do Cubase 3 drivers work with Cubase Audio?

You can test the latency by recording audio from two of the same MIDI instruments (for example I have 2 Akai S2000 samplers I can use) or you can run a MIDI cable from an output to an input with auto quantize turned off and then transfer the MIDI file to a modern computer to trigger a VSTI.

Re: Upgrade path

Your primary limitation is the lack of RAM. Modern upgrades tend to be switchable for backward compatibility so you should be able to switch between 1MB and 4MB and the same will be true in regard to the operating system which should ideally be switchable between TOS 1.02 and 1.04 which I believe is...

Re: Modem midi - how to set up in Cubase and Notator?

I still use a modem MIDI cable I built ages ago. There isn't much to it at all and the more expensive Export would only give decent timing on one output anyway. To test your modem MIDI cable simply plug it into the MIDI input of your keyboard instead of plugging the Atari's MIDI out into your keyboa...

Re: Android MIDI input from Atari

Charles is quite right about the portability aspect....I used to compose on a portable Yamaha QY-20 and then import the sequences into the computer, unfortunately the SQYRREL II software for the Atari is missing in action.

Re: Do Cubase 3 drivers work with Cubase Audio?

Well the Cubase dongle had to be connected to the PC's printer port and I assume that the PC MIDI 3 could be connected to that just like a printer or whatever but as I recall ISA based MIDI interfaces were quite common back then even for single MIDI I/O (Steinberg made one of those too) but with the...

Re: Do Cubase 3 drivers work with Cubase Audio?

Yes Steinberg made a ISA card so you could use the SMPII on an IBM and I think their MIDI 3 interface could also be configured to work on an IBM.

Re: Do you use/need SMPTE LTC?

Unlike the old Roland MIDI cables that I have most MIDI cables sold these days tend to have all 5 pins wired up which is not recommended for use with the Atari's non standard MIDI out/thru connector so anyone rocking an Atari should be using a MIDI cable with just the 3 pins wired unless of course t...

Re: Do you use/need more than one MIDI input?

I wouldn't say I rely on the additional MIDI inputs but I do use them on occasion for MIDI dumps and controlling stuff that isn't timing critical.

Glad to see it's not going to the dump, I have one myself and in addition to a new ribbon I would also recommend putting a little oil on the rails so the print head can move properly.....oh yeah and that glue that hardens with a UV light is ideal for sticking that transparent cover back together.

Re: Scroll wheel support?

This seems like quite a simple device. Is the software available online anywhere? I'm a little surprised it works with Cubase, considering how much it takes over the machine and bypasses TOS. I wonder if anyone ever made a controller which plugged into the enhanced joystick ports on the STE/Falcon?...
