Re: [midiguitar] Re: Stringport

We have added a high speed bi-directional data path riding on the (GK-3A 13 pin)  interface Up/Down [S1/S2]
buttons data lines . The unused pin #9 is used as a digital ground for the return path for
digital circuitry. Also the power supplies to the guitar are beefed up (about 5
watts). The plan is to support CPUs in the guitar.( via 13 pin interface )
