Re: MPU-401 and MIF-IPC-B question

Thank you! didn't find these reference but found another straight cable and a gender changer, hopefully i'll be good! Hey, any conclusion with the cable and the setup in general since? Got myself an MPU 401 box, and already have an MT-32, but nothing else, yet, so I am kinda in the same boat where …

Re: Can I connect an MPU-401 to a Sound Card?

That I know, I was just wondering if a sound card's UART port would suffice to bring it to life No you'll need that LoTech mif ipc clone card or a roland original and one of these unless you want to fry it. https://www.amazon.com/Your-Cable-Store-DB25-Serial/dp/B07JPDWNKY This is the way. Thanks

Can I connect an MPU-401 to a Sound Card?

Pretty much as the title suggests, I bought an MPU-401 breakout box but I don't have an interface card for it. Will it work if I hook it up to the MIDI UART port of a sound card? I also have a MT-32 module. I know I can connect this directly to a sound card, but want to test the MPU-401.

Re: Sound Blaster CT1600 overheating

I have one of these cards. Can you explain a short procedure to see if this is reproducible? I don't have a CD-ROM compatible with this card. Does any a part of it still get hot without this device connected? I've just tried the card in another motherboard and PSU, and *drumroll* the overheating …

Re: Sound Blaster CT1600 overheating

All of the three buffer/driver chips seem to be connected to the 8 ISA data bits. If they get hot, it looks like they fight each other driving data to the ISA bus. The left one is used to drive data from the ISA bus to the CD cable and vice versa. It must not get hot at all if the CD drive is not …

Re: Sound Blaster CT1600 overheating

Im guessing they are some kind of memory/cache IC's, its possible they are simply getting old and need to be replaced. I would slap some heatsinks on them and see if that helps but I would also start looking for a replacement. Quick google tells me these are some octal buffers/line drivers , but it …

Sound Blaster CT1600 overheating

...as the title suggests, some parts of the card become excessively hot (marked with red below), it works for a while, until it doesn't. After a bit of a cool down it start working again. Any idea whether it can be fixed? Should I put a cooler on it? :D https://i.imgur.com/jEfpRU5.jpeg] https://i. …
