I will buy one MIDI Interface 3.

(p.s. Re. DalSoRi v2, depending on the final specs I may have some interest.)

Sorry but 125 is to much, i pass on the Midi interface.
And i have a sunrise Moonblaster so no Dalsori for me.
Thanks for the interest and active support on MSX hardware.

You're welcome. Yep, JunSoft had to design the PCB for it's own version, so he has costs to make it available.
Moonblaster? You mean MoonSound I guess? If people arrange combined orders for each country, the price will probably lower.

I have a Sunrise 2.0 which has died on me two times. First time the bad pre-amps were replaced because one channel got muted. Second time my WAVE part died after I paused my turbo R (FM was still functional). Beware that the Sunrise ones don't have eternal life. The 2.0 has some more weak spots so I've been told by Sunrise. Having some spare OPL4 cartridges is my way to ensure I can use the real thing some decades longer. The newer clones have better parts which will probably last longer...

Oke you got me there, i only have 1 Moonsound. (still works)
So for argument sake, what will the specs for the new DalSoRi v2 be?
Will it have 4MB of WaveTable RAM, thus eliminating the annoying restrictions imposed by the YRW801 ROM
- ADPCM playback, for backwards compatibility with the Y8950
- MSX-Audio BIOS circuit, extended to ASCII16 to support up to 4MB of a AM29F032 flash.
- YSS225 effects processor (what that may do ?)
- A jumper to allow the selection of I/O address C0h or C4h

Will the Dalsori v2 be "unique" and have more "features"
Or will it be a better version of the original moonsound.

And for the Midi interface what can it do better or more then a Turbo-r GT or a Philips Music Module or a Midi pac fom Bit2 ?
Where can i use the € 125 for ??

Please let us know so we can make a fear judgment of the interfaces.

Definitely it will be unique and have more features. In fact, if the cartridge has all these features, the best name for it would be "Super MSX-Audio", or "MSX-Audio 2", because it will be the definitive MSX sound expansion. It will:

- Be fully compatible with the original MSX-Audio
- Be fully compatible with the MoonSound
- Be compatible with MSX-Music software that use the BIOS
- Be compatible with BASIC programs for the MSX-Audio
- Be compatible with BASIC programs for the MSX-Music
- Extend the MoonSound to have sound effects like reverb and chorus via YSS225 (on either wave table or FM)
- Extend the MoonSound to eliminate the restrictions of the YWR801 ROM
- Extend to stereo the MSX-Audio and MSX-Music programs that use the BIOS

AFAIK, the MIDI3 cartridge is exactly the same as the GT MIDI. I don't know if this version will have the BASIC extension ROM or not.
