If the midi device you want to connect to your Pilot has a connection for a Mac/PC serial lead then you do not need an interface. You will require the appropriate cable from either your cradle or serial lead. This depends on the device to which you are connecting. I cannot give any advice on this except to state that I have used this method to connect to a Yamaha VL70 synth that has a Mac style connector. I used the cradle and the adaptor I got with my Mac hot sync cable.
was designed by me and is a simple midi in/out interface. The
schematic and the list of components..
I have a PCB, printed circuit board,
to allow construction of the circuit - the board is approximately 1.5" X 3.5"
( contact me if you want to buy
one ). You have to solder the components on yourself. Remember that is
an adaptor and requires either a Palm Pilot stand or hot sync cable. Price

If there are any programmers who produce code to utilise this interface,
then let me know and a will try to link to you from this page. Programming
the interface is very simple, open the serial port and set it to 31250. Then
write to the midi port using the Midi protocol - Harmony
Central or midifarm
have protocol information. You should also be able to use basic
to write to this interface.
