Super MIDI Pak Coming to SFC/SNES

A new MIDI synth interface called the Super MIDI Pak is available for pre order on their website  This custom cart turns your Super Famicom/Nintendo into a polyphonic MIDI synthesizer, and gives users direct access to the consoles sound chip.  

This can be accomplished by either connecting via MIDI cables to a keyboard, etc or using the USB port from the cart to a computer where you can access via their companion web application to use its advanced features.
