   <P CLASS=INFO>Sounds can be played once the <A HREF="mbhp_opl3.html">MBHP_OPL3</A> module has been connected to the <A HREF="mbhp_core.html">MBHP_CORE</A>. All parameters can be edited with the JSynthLib based SysEx editor in realtime from a Windows/Mac/Linux computer. A <A HREF="mbhp_bankstick.html">BankStick</A> is highly recommented, otherwise only one patch, one ensemble and one drumset can be stored in the internal memory. Wavetables can only be stored in BankSticks. Note also that up to eight BankSticks can be connected - the large storage is especially useful if fast access to the preset banks is desired. Each BankStick can store 128 Soundpatches, 16 Drumsets and 32 Ensembles.</P>

   <P CLASS=INFO>The next extension step is the use of one 2x40 LCD + eight softbuttons + one ESC button + one CFG button + four Instr/OP select buttons + 10 LEDs + one data dial (rotary encoder) - this enables you to edit all sound parameters directly on the device. One <A HREF="mbhp_din.html">MBHP_DINX4</A> module and one <A HREF="mbhp_dout.html">MBHP_DOUTX4</A> module is required to interface these parts to the core.</P>

   <P CLASS=INFO>The last extension step is the use of four V-Pots + the 6+4 buttons and 6*4 LEDs of the selection matrix. No additional DINX4 or DOUTX4 module is required for this extension.</P>

   <P CLASS=INFO>Below a list of the complete "MIDIbox FM" - costs can be reduced by choosing cheaper buttons, a cheaper case/panel and by organizing collective orders in the <A HREF="http://forum.midibox.org" TARGET="_blank">MIDIbox Forum</A>!</P>
