MiSTer MT32-Pi Hat v2.1


An assembled MiSTer mt32-pi HAT v2.1. This Raspberry Pi HAT allows you to connect a MiSTer FPGA with an IO board to a Raspberry Pi 3 or above, intended for use with cores supporting external MIDI hardware.

(3 customer reviews)

Many of the MiSTer computer cores support external MIDI hardware, such as the ao486 (PC), Minimig (Amiga), and Atari ST cores.

You can be confident in knowing each MiSTer FPGA MT-32 Pi HAT v2.1 board has been tested before despatch on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ connected to a live MiSTer setup.

Dale Whinham is the mt32-pi project developer, the project GitHub and mt32-pi wiki contains all the information needed on setting up a Raspberry Pi 3 or later as a Roland MT-32 emulator. Additional specific MiSTer FPGA configuration and connection related information is located here on GitHub.

    Absolutely shocked no one has written a review yet, let me be the first. If you’ve got a MiSTer and you’re a fan of the Ao486, Amiga or Atari ST cores (and who isn’t) then you’ll need to invest in an MT32-Pi Hat. Everyone and his dog has a Raspberry Pi 3a, 3b or 4 knocking around (probably, like mine, last used as an emulator before I discovered the MiSTer project). This hat turns your Raspberry Pi into a bare-metal Roland MT32 sound module, taking full advantage of the midi tunes that accompanies many games, especially on the Ao486 core.

    Once again, like everything on this website, Nat has done a outstanding job in producing the MT32-pi. The pack itself contains the MT32-Pi, as well as additional screws, stand-offs and nuts for different mounting options. The quality of the boards, the 3d printed parts and the buttons are second to none. The board simply pushes onto the GPIO pins on the Raspberry pi.. That’s it – Job Done. A short USB 3 cable then connects the hat to the MiSTer. At the time of writing, the MT32 didn’t come with a USB cable, however they can be sourced on Amazon for as little as ÂŖ5.99. The MT32-pi is an incredible bargain and more than pays for itself. Upon arrival, I simply followed the instructions on Dale Whinham GitHub page, formatted an SD card, installed the s/ware and was up & running. Cannot recommend enough.

    My MT32 PI Hat arrived in safe and sound condition, worked like a charm with minimum effort (just push the hat in GPIO pins of a RPI and follow the wiki instructions, as Bazza mentioned in previous review) Awesome product, fully recommend

    Thank you, Nat, for the great work and help!

    When building my second MiSTer to go into an external case, I had a very special need for this product that was not going to have the default configuration as I needed to have the LCD that I could swap.

    I spoke to Nat about this a good while back and he said that he would do this for me.

    When the time came ( as this part took a while to come into stock ), Nat was true to his word and is shipping me a custom version of the piece.

    I am based in the UK and shipping to the UK on all parts I’ve ordered from here has been smooth an flawless. For parts that are very delicate such as anything for the MiSTer, they come very well packaged so even having to survive the UK postal system, nothing in my experience has been damaged.

    This will be my third order when the MT-32PI arrives and can wholeheartedly recommend products from this site that are well built and tested before being shipped.

    I consider the products you get here such value for money that on my second order I purposely did not use the discount voucher I had from the first order as the price point was still very good value and when you’re getting such a well built product it felt wrong to take away from the business if that makes sense.

    10/10 for product and also the service that Nat offers here.
