“This is a midibox Sid synthesizer based off the commodore sound chips much like the
elektron Sid station but with knobs and more polyphony. It’s like a sammich Sid fully knobbed
out which makes it infinitely more enjoyable and there are way more voices!
I’m sure if you’re looking at this you know what it is and there is plenty of info out there.
Built by “exfade” who does modifications. I’ve played it for a couple hours total
so it’s kind of like new DIY. The commodore case was obviously sawed out
funky on the back but you never see it when playing and could maybe be addressed
if you are good with DIY electronics. This thing eats other Sid based synthesizers for breakfast!
It’s got 8 chips and two of them are the dirtier sounding older chips. The unit works great,
takes a couple seconds to boot up and have the lights turn on then it purrs like a kitten.
Because this is a DIY kit I’m selling this as-is since you can’t buy it from a company or
have serviced, it is essentially homemade but it works great.
I’ve never disappointed an eBay customer, I always describe accurately and package
things safely! If you want the real Commodore SID sound this is the way to do it!
I’m not a MIDI guy so it really never fit into my setup. ” Link

“Hello, universe! For your buying pleasure, I present to you a MIDINES cartridge, complete with everything you need to incorporate authentic 8-bit sounds into your MIDI studio. MIDINES is an extremely clever hardware interface that not only enables control of the NES’s sound chip, but also includes retro visualisation software and 256 authentically crunchy lo-fi samples from classic drum machines like the 707, 808, 909, LM-1, DMX, and others. MIDINES is intuitive to use, with extensive documentation and a vibrant community of users online. For more information and to listen to sound samples, visit the MIDINES website here.

Also included is an NES system that has been specially modified for use with the MIDINES software. Two 1/4″ audio outputs were wired directly to the NES’s 2A03 sound chip and installed in the back of the system (pictured above and below). These outputs facilitate using MIDINES with a mixer or other audio interface, by providing a cleaner and less noisy output than the TV audio or the RCA output on the side of the NES. The system has also been spray-painted a matte black color, which looks very slick and professional. This auction includes the MIDINES cartridge, the modified NES system, and the original Nintendo controller (also spray-painted to match the system), power supply, and coaxial cable.

Whether you’re a diehard chiptune freak or an average musician looking to experiment with 8-bit sounds, you cannot go wrong with this setup.” Link

“For sale is a never-used Wayfar MidiNES cartridge in like-new condition. I’m unsure of the version of this cartridge; my folks bought this for me as a gift around 2003/2004, but I haven’t been able to correlate the year to the version history on Wayfar’s site. All I’m certain of is that this predates the inclusion of pre-loaded drum kit samples.

This cartridge has never been used; It’s never been out of the bag (except for the picture) and so has not been exposed to household dust, smoke, etc.” Link

“This is a rare MidiNES cartridge made by Wayfar, a.k.a. x|k. MidiNES is a cartridge that offers robust MIDI control of the Nintendo Entertainment System’s internal 5-channel synthesizer – a serious chiptune tool, or just a great way to get iconic Nintendo sounds! Here are the 5 channels:

2 square waves
triangle wave (the iconic NES bass sound)
noise (great for percussion)
DPCM sample playback, preloaded with classic drum samples

MidiNES is extremely difficult to find. It is difficult to buy them from Wayfar due to an extended waiting list, and they appear on eBay only rarely. This one is in excellent physical shape, and perfect working order.
It will ship in an anti-static bag inside a padded box, and will come with a Nintendo cartridge sleeve, which is not pictured. No manual is included – all the documentation is primarily kept online at Wayfar’s site.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

It can be incorporated seamlessly into any midi recording setup.

It was purchased new by me from Wayfar Industries in 2007. It has seen only light use and is in great shape. It has some scratches on the back where a label used to be, but it was like that when I got it. The cartridge works great with no problems and is an absolute wonder to behold. ” Auction ended.

If you don’t know what it is, it is a cartridge that plugs into the NES and has a midi port connected to it, allowing complete midi control over the synthesizer sounds inside of a Nintendo Entertainment System. It is the ultimate tool for making chiptune! It has control of 5 channels, 2 square waves, a triangle wave, a noise channel and a really awesome DPCM sample playback channel with some awesome classic drum samples in all their lofi bit crushed glory.
