MidiSizer MidiGAL w/ MidiPAL v1.4 firmware
via this auction
Not sure when the MidiGAL was released, but this appears to be the first time it has been featured here on the site.
Details via the listing:
"MidiSizer MidiGAL, hand built with love by Pete Kvitek and running MidiPAL v1.4 firmware.
It includes 19 different MIDI 'apps', ranging from MIDI debugging or routing utilities to compositional tools like arpeggiators, scale, midi delay, and pattern generators.
Although this MidiGAL is running Mutable Instruments firmware, there is a number of other firmware variants that were developed specifically for MidiGAL.
I think you can flash your own firmware if you know what you're doing.
Product page for MidiGAL is here - midisizer.com/midigal/
MidiPAL firmware info: mutable-instruments.net/midipal
The unit is in a clear acrylic case and ships with the power supply pictured in the listing."
Last pic below is minus the case via the midisizer website which has the following details on the MidiGAL:
"Although MidiGAL can run Mutable Instruments MIDIpal firmware, there is a number of other firmware variants that were developed specifically for MidiGAL:
MidiClk — MIDI clock tester/generator
MidiArp — advanced MIDI arpeggiator
MidiSeq — polyphonic MIDI step sequencer
MidiGAL differences from MIDIpal
While MidiGAL hardware is almost identical to the original MIDIpal, there are some minor differences:
8×2 LCD (MIDIpal uses 8×1)
tactile switch (MIDIpal has no switch)
external EEPROM (MIDIpal has no external EEPROM)
4 x I/O ports (MIDIpal has 8 of them)"
