"The MT32-pi MIDI synthesizer presented in this lot emulates the famous Roland MT-32 synthesizer and is based on the Open Source project of the same name. The hardware runs on Raspberry Pi 3, and the software is based on Munt, FluidSynth and Circle.
The MT32-pi synthesizer has an I2S PCM5102 DAC sound card with good sound quality, which is almost indistinguishable from the original MT32. There is a large 4-line HD44780 display on the front panel.
On one side, there are a power switch, a standard 5DIN MIDI input port and an output Jack 3.5 (for headphones or amplifier). On the other side there is an easy access compartment with a memory card for software updates and banks storage.

The synthesizer currently has 2 operating modes:
1) 100% authentic in sound and functionality replica of the famous Roland MT-32.
2) Sound Font player. You can load any banks from microSD memory card (for example, Roland Sound Canvas 55 and 88).

The synthesizer is powered by a 220 volt electrical network and has an EU standard plug.
The synthesizer body is printed on a 3D printer and made of PETG plastic (it is not designed for large mechanical loads)."
