·Hi.· I have been working on some MIDI projects using the basic stamp.· I know people have successfully recieved MIDI Input on a bs2sx with a uart chip.· Is it possible to recieve MIDI information on a plain old BS2·with a uart chip?

You probably could, depending on the traffic.· The trick is buffering the data and processing it efficiently.· I did an SX/B project that receives and buffers MIDI data is a software UART, with a very straightforward foreground processing program.· You can find that project here:


Since it's written in SX/B, it should be pretty easy to convert to PBASIC.

Jon has a great article in the June 2005 Nuts & Volts: "Even Mo' MIDI" - you might want to give it a read...
