The Nintendo NES MIDI Synthesizer

video upload by MrCaliforniaD

"I built this custom Nintendo NES MIDI synthesizer using a real Nintendo (Model NES-001) and a Famimimidi NES cartridge.

The Famimimidi NES cartridge is an incredibly well developped product that lets you control a Nintendo sound chip via MIDI IN. It's rare that such a product is released to the public in such a stable and complete state.

The cartridge is available for purchase (, but it seems to be out of stock at the moment.

The challenge for this project was to fit everything in a 1U rackmount enclosure.

This project is a one-off, and I don't intend to build more of them. Not for sale. Sorry!"
