The striking thing is that Cubase v3 has a folder with specific drivers for the TT and they are Midex and SMP.
If there are common drivers, it may indicate that the operation with these auxiliary devices is not very different between the different computers, except Midex and SMP that include synchronisms.

However perhaps they simply meant that the MIDEX had to be 'enhanced / hacked' to work with the Falcon, and perhaps at the time of writing the SMPII did not have drivers that worked with CAF.
Steinberg MIDEX / MIDEX+
MACMAN interfaces for those TOS machines with the lanport (forgot those)
Geerdes StarPort (forgot that too, but as I have learned, a clone of the Friendchip MM1 for Geerdes products only)

I love that sequencer, such a well-designed interface. Much easier than Cubase. The only reason I don't use it more often is because it can't support time signature changes. It also has no graphical controller editor. Breakthru is also the only sequencer I've tried which runs under MINT.
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.
