Experimenting with BeatPad (on the Handera 330) and the MIDI Vampires


This is an experiment I've been meaning to try for a while now. I wanted to see if I could use MIDI from the Handera 330 running BeatPad (from miniMusic and using one of their serial to MIDI connectors to run into the MIDI vampires.

My previous attempts with this were using a non-powered V5 (Philip Rees) but that didn't work as the vampires need MIDI power, which is why they're called vampires as they use MIDI vampiric power. So I thought that if I used a V3, which is powered by a 9V battery. However, even with this it didn't seem to work. I tested everything, but couldn't get the vampires to work.

My only assumption is that the vampires aren't working anymore. Which is a shame.
