cloning a Soundchaser and an Alpha Syntauri

I going to clone the soundchaser first, since I own one.

Soundchaser PCB desoldered:

Connector decoded:

It is possible to adapt a simple 49 key midi control keyboard to be attached to the sound chaser Interface. The alpha syntauri is a bit more complicated since it uses dynamic keys.

Very cool Jonas,

Nice job on the de-solder work. Thanks for sharing.
And for all who are interested, the software for this board can be D/L'd here:

I came across a new version

I came across a new version of the interface:

it seems to be manufactured by JEN for a 61-key keyboard
