Here is another project : WP32 McCake

Waveblaster compatible card containing :
- good quality DAC, careful analog part
- micro sd card slot for your software and legal MT32 rom binary backup
- power circuitry including protection and dual option :
- power through waveblaster header
- power connection for floppy power
- compute module 4 for running Munt or other synth

I hope to have prototypes in december

Sweet! I want one already.

Would be even better if it had a way to hook up an LCD that could be set on the outside of the computer to display the messages like a real MT-32

Well that I will buy, because you can emulate other MIDI devices, load your own sound banks in the SD card, possibilities are limitless.

I am aroused about any X86 motherboard that has full functional ISA slot. I think i have problem. Not really into that original (Turbo) XT,286,386 and CGA/EGA stuff. So just a DOS nut.

Ah, MT32 emulator via RPi on waveblaster board. Ought to be quite useful considering MT32s continue to rise in price. Even though I have one I still want this one, if only to tinker with it. What's next, CM-500 on WB? Like this with Yucatan FX in one board (and sysex to switch between MT32 and GM perhaps)? On the other hand I guess running SC VST is also an option, doesn't have to be just MUNT.

also add rs232 header to connect to computers interal rs232 header so you can use console from retropc too, or serial tcp/ip link ?
Does RPI 4 have 2 Uarts ?

I like it it looks really Great!
