The ATARI Hotz MIDI Translator

Title link takes you to the ATARI Hotz MIDI Translator page on the Atari Museum site [BTW, do check out the rest of the site for more retro Atari goodness]. You can find two more images of the Hotz MIDI Translator on Sendling.

If you look at the image in this post you will see the translator on the left. Note how much thinner it is than the unit on the right with the ATARI logo. If anyone knows what the unit on the right is, please feel free to comment.

Update: Check out the comments for more links. The unit with the ATARI logo is the same as the other. It's just the back, and it's tilted up for a flat surface.

  1. actually i think its the same thing as the one on the right - if you look at the one on the left, you can see it slopes a bit - and is probably wedge shaped, having a much wider back end

    also if you look closely at the one on the right you can see the top of it and it looks the same as the one on the left

  2. Could be. If it is, he must have something supporting the front of it to make it sit on a flat plane parallel to the table. It's not at an angle like the other one.
