: I would like to get some ideas where to start looking for documentation
: on physical interface with a linux box (scsi-serial).
: My goal is to set-up a link with my acoustic piano, to get noticed
: whenever I play a note on the piano keyboard. That is it : being noticed
: from some "interface" (scsi, serial, ...) when events occurs.
: I could even interface trough the PC keyboard slot, if it recongnize the
: fact that 10 keys can be pressed simultaneously.
: Can somebody suggestion can be caught here?
: Many thanks!

Ever heard of MIDI (Musical instruents digital interface ?)
.) Make your instrument send MIDI data. i.e. buy a MIDI-keyboard or a
MIDI-piano. I think it is even possible to install a MIDI device
into a normal piano.
.) Make your computer receive MIDI data. i.e. purchase a MIDI interface
(please no SB ... get yourself a Roland compatible, SB is NO Standard)
.) Have fun setting up the software !!! I'm just struggeling with the
MPU driver under Linux (by the way : any advice/help/experiences from
anyone ... MAIL ME !! I run Linux 1.1.53 with sound extensions and
a Roland MPU-IPC-T)
.) good luck
