Use Your DS For Midi?

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Homebrew scene comes up with another clever use of the DS interface, a MIDI controller!

Joystiq have reported that a small group of homebrew developers (Tobias "0xtob" Weyand and Collin "TheRain" Meyer) in Germany are currently developed a system dubbed "DS Midi WiFi" that allows the DS to exchange MIDI data with a PC.

"The exchange works both ways, so users can tap out tunes on their touch screens (using an accompanying keyboard app), while PCs receive and output the data; or, more sophisticated tracks can be composed using a MIDI sequencer on PC, and then beamed to DS for playback."

Hmm, interesting. Check out the video from YouTube.

Homebrew software is brilliant. It's great people take the time to do these things.
