Anyone know if there is a windows based program that converts MIDI to the calc format?

Boy, that would be useful for converting all my Dance Dance Revolution MIDI songs for the calculator version I made. Wouldn't it just be nice if it could just run regular MIDI...(cries)

I think it would be great to make a game or something using sound, and I would do it if I knew how to make sound. I have heard the Piano program for ION and I know a few games that I could add sounds to and it would be pretty cool. If anyone can help me with this, E-mail me or reply to my post.

How do you get a speaker in you calc?

You don't really need a speaker. You can have headphones that fit into your calculator's link port. I have one of those. It's actually not common to find the 2.5 mm ends anymore.

Also, if you got a calc w/ the tiny little Calc2calc black cable, you can make an Improvised CalcSpeaker! take two wires, 4 aligator clips, and put it all together, and Vola! you have sooooound!!!

Link cable a-----\-----A A Speaker cable
b-----/-----B OR
c-----------C C
These are the 3/2 connectors on the plugs
C always goes to c

a/b can be switched, i think that it is stereo if u have 3 wires w/ aligator clips...

(I did something kool, my stepdad gave me this cassete w/ a wire comming out of it, so i connected my calc to it using the above Scematic... then i put the tape into the car stereo and WOW loud sound!!

Here's a good idea:

Buy a 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adaptor for 3 bucks at Radioshack!! Put it on a set of headphones and plug it in to your calc!!

Thats exactly what i did and it works. I Tried before, but i thought there was a built in speaker.Until i read your coment,so i went to rodio shack and got an adapter, and it worked. Thanks

I forgot to put this into my other statement.
I am in electronics and i might try to put a tiny pezzo buzzer from Radio Shack into the calculator.With it connected to the Plug in Jack in a parrall circuit, so you can still use the jack and get sound from the calc at the same time with out having to switch any wires.

OR you could just buy the 2.5 mm plug from any goo electronics store (you may need to file the base of it to get it to fit) splice an old pair of headphones, and connect the wires, it's not that hard, and in most cases requires no soldering

for 84+ users:
THE MONO HEADPHONE ADAPTER DOES NOT FIT INTO THE SMALL HOLE THAT SURROUNDS THE LINK PORT. Use the stereo adapter. NOT the mono. If you use the stereo, it costs like 20 cents more, but now you can get stereo sound in sound progs like CalcMod!

you can connect a speaker through the spinteface port.I am currently biuldind a 83+ version once thats been completed i will test cartriges such as ir port,speaker,wether checker(checks temp,pressure,etc...)extra mem,and developing a modem for the 83+,usb port,printer adapter,etc...
the original spinterface port is biult into the calc but i fear damaging my calc so this will be an external modual.after the mod is built and some cartriges work i will release the shcematics to all.

my programming skills arent the best so any assembly and shell programers are welcomed to contact me so we could develope some programs to work with the port

comments?,questions?,email me at

if you would like the web site for the original spinterface please email me

There is a game with sound for the 83+. It is IceClimb
and can be found on this site.

Connection a headphone straight ahead to the Link port can damage the port because you shortcut the two 1bit ports for a long time when listening. If you use a headphone make sure you put 2 2,5KiloOhm resistors between the +L (Tip/Red) en +R (Ring/White). The - can be connected directly to the Link Port.

Connecting to an powered amplifier (like computer speakers) can be done without resistors because amplifiers have a high resistance.
