Best Electronics has been Sold Out of the very popular Wizztronics Atari 8 bit Midimax MIDI interfaces for close to 6 – 7+ years now. Not to use the over used “RARE” word on E-Bay Atari listings, the MIDIMAX product is one step more. In the last 10+ year of watching for Atari items on E-bay every single day, I think in total, we have only seen one used Wizztronics MIDIMAX listed and sold on E-Bay. Think of it, have you ever seen a Wizztronics Atari MIDIMAX ever listed on E-bay at all? World wide Atari 8 Bit Computer (400 (48K), 800 (48K), 1200XL, 800XL, 65XE / 130XE and XE Game owners simply will not part with their highly prized Atari MIDIMAX interface. With an inexpensive MIDI Keyboard you can now learn how to use MIDI Synthesizers, Drum machines, Write/Save, Play and Modify Music without the normal High cost of a normal MIDI system and Atari ST, PC or Mac Computer. With the MIDIMAX MIDI interface, standard MIDI Keyboard, 2 MIDI cables and an Atari 8 bit computer with disk drive, you have a Brand New application for your Classic Atari 8 bit Computer!!
