Xonik Devices Midi to Roland PG-200 Protocol Converter Kit


You might recall the MIDI to JX-3P Protocol Converter from Xonik Devices posted back in 2015 here. Xonik Devices wrote in to let us know they have a new converter kit. Details follow.

"Hi everybody! Five years ago I made a small device that translates midi CC messages into the proprietary format that the Roland PG-200 uses to control the JX-3P, MKS-30 and GR-700, making it possible to tweak parameters on these synths without the rather expensive PG-200.

Quite a few people have asked if they could buy one, so I've decided to sell the device as a solder-yourself kit. Prices start at EUR 50 + postage without
an enclosure. I've got enough parts for 40 kits at the moment, sold on a first come first served basis. If demand is high I will probably order more parts, but there is a bit of a lead time.

If you want to order one, have any questions or just want to contact me, go to:

PS: I do this on a hobby basis so it may take me a few days to get back to you!

About the MPG-200:

The MPG-200 is an affordable replacement for the PG-200 synthesizer programmer. It is a protocol translator for vintage Roland synths that use the PG-200 - JX-3P, MKS-30 and GR-700. It translates standard midi CC-messages into the proprietary PG-200 format necessary to control the synths, making it possible to use a DAW, hardware midi controller or other synth in place of the expensive PG-200.

No internal modification of your synth is necessary, as the MPG-200 does a direct translation into the PG-200 data format.

The MPG-200 comes with Midi thru, so you don't have to use a splitter if you want to control both playing and parameter noodling of your MKS-30 from the same midi source.

The MPG-200 is configurable and upgradable through Midi.
