MIDI controll

Post by gameguy » June 8th, 2019, 2:09 am

Is there any way to control psx with MIDI?

I want to do VJ by using psx in tip tune.
If I can use MIDI with psx, it will be possible to control the audio reactive video.

It seems to be possible by hacking the serial port or the controller port.
Is there anyone who knows the details?

You can use the serial port, but you'll need to make your own hardware and write some software to what you want your MIDI program to do.
Development Console: SCPH-5502 with 8MB RAM, MM3 Modchip, PAL 60 Colour Modification (for NTSC), PSIO Switch Board, DB-9 breakout headers for both RGB and Serial output and an Xplorer with CAETLA 0.34.

PlayStation Development PC: Windows 98 SE, Pentium 3 at 400MHz, 128MB SDRAM, DTL-H2000, DTL-H2010, DTL-H201A, DTL-S2020 (with 4GB SCSI-2 HDD), 21" Sony G420, CD-R burner, 3.25" and 5.25" Floppy Diskette Drives, ZIP 100 Diskette Drive and an IBM Model M keyboard.

Serial is fairly simple although I remember midi having a wierd baud rate the pax should be able to do it. I suppose the difficulty would come with the clock part of it so everything stays in sync.
