The C64 FastFingers2 MIDI interface and software are basically FINISHED. I'm just doing a few touchups including instruction manual, and sound tweaking for Velocity. This complete package, (interface and software) will cost $60 US. + shipping

For an additional $30, I'm going to start working on getting this on a cartridge so that a 1541 will be unnecessary. That package will cost $90 US + shipping.

HOWEVER, TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR EVERYTHING TO FIT ON A 16K CARTRIDGE THINGS WILL BE MOVED AROUND....SO THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT ANY SOUNDS, ARPEGGIOS, RECORDINGS MADE ON FASTFINGERS OR FASTFINGERS2 MAY NOT BE COMPATIBLE WITH THE CARTRIDGE VERSION. THEY MAY BE SITTING IN A DIFFERENT MEMORY LOCATION.

So there will be 2 pieces of hardware in the Cartridge version...the MIDI interface and the Cartridge.

I'm expecting to have a finished Fastfingers2 package by the time of the WUC in December. I may or may not have packaging for the circuit board at that time. I may or may not have a cartridge version as well for all of you that hate your 1541s. I'm working on a new instruction manual now. BTW This is the MIDI version with Lightshow, 16X16 sequencer and Basic custom pitch tables. Dan

All is well with FastFingers 2

There are no more limitations with the midi interface.  It tracks the keyboard faithfully and sends those notes to the C64

IT WORKS!

It works !!!! The C64 Fastfingers interface part that is ! It still has the limitation that you MUST release a key (on your midi keyboard) before hitting the next one.
