Hello,

I'd like to know, what options one has connecting the BSP to a computer.

I'd like to use it to control VJ software.

I happen to own a compaq evo notebook, and there is no standard gameport connector on it. Neither is on the damn port replicator

Can BSP connect thru USB / whatever?

Just a thought: this Q/A should be in the faq, which is quite short BTW...

Thanks in advance,
dRD

Love the design of the unit tho

You can connect the Bitstream to an external soundcard featuring MIDI (on USB, Firewire or PCMCIA).

You can also use a low cost USB to MIDI adapter, a 1x1 is enough (1 MIDI In, 1 MIDI out)

If your laptop features a standard joystick port, you can connect it to this port via a standard MIDI joystick cable.

you can use the m-audio usb midisport uno, or the usb midisport 1x1
The Yamaha UX16 should also do the job
The UM1 or other interfaces from edirol are NOT recomended
