>>This came from Kenton Electronics today, a world-renowned company
>>in MIDI retrofits of analogue synths etc.  I EMailed about getting a MIDI
>>retrofit on the V. I _thought_ I was buying (sniff), and got this reply.
>>-$ exchange rate is $1.65=1 btw.  And you're probably VAT (Value Added
>>ie sales tax) exempt outside the UK.
>>                although we don't actually do an internal MIDI retro-fit
>>for the Vortex, it can be controlled using a KADI unit. This is an
>>external box (originally intended for drum machines) which converts MIDI
>>data to trigger signals.
>>        The MIDI data may be in the form of program change commands, or
>>note data and the trigger signal may be a positive or negative, level,
>>or pulse, the duration of which is user definable. With the addition of
>>a suitable lead, the device will be able to control all the inputs on
>>the Vortex. The full spec. is as follows...
