Worklog Midibox #1

So, after collecting a lot of bits and pieces, reading a lot of documentation I finally started building my midibox.

You might think: "what on earth is a MidiBox?". Well, that's pretty well explained at the Wiki of midibox.org

I'm making a MidiBox SID.

To be precise the MB-6582, which is a MidiBox built around (up to) 8 SID-chips. A SID-chip is the built-in sound module in the Commodore 64 (amongst others).

Probably I won't use the standard black casing, but build my own from UV-reactive "plexiglass" (Acrylic glass or poly(methyl methacrylate)).

What it should do eventually:

I've done quite a lot of it already, so I'll be backlogging real soon šŸ™‚
