MIDI is MIDI. Will work on any MIDI compliant device.

Wow - had to pop to Tesco for some food and had a quick peek at the household clearance stall. Picked up the following for £2.50 each.

Commodore VC-20 (Yes, VC not VIC) and Datasette. No PSU.
ZX speccy in a DK Troniks case. No PSU.

Bargains! :)

Tesco sells this kind of stuff in its Household Clearance area?  Or have I misread that?
