I doubt you can just plug in any mic to it since it's a combined headphones+mic port.
That's right.

Re: the GBA, you could order a copy of Nanoloop. There are some trackers out there as well. There's a new iPhone version of Nanoloop out which I will probably pick up at some point; I found the GBA version to be frustrating because it really would have benefited by a touchscreen interface. I've never seen personally a MIDI keyboard connected to a GBA.

Re: the iPad, the problem with it as a controller is just the fact that you need to rely on some kind of wireless networking to another device to use it. It would be great if there were a stock wifi OSC/MIDI box that handled all the connections. It would be equally great if the Pandora could function in the same way.

There are an increasing number of USB-mic preamps that provide phantom power over a TRS interface. One of them is an option when you order a system from Indamixx, so there must be some kind of Linux compatibility for that.

^The headset port has got a microphone contact, no line in.
always glad to be set straight, dude :)

i knew there was some kind of input there and if anything im glad its a mic input!
Thera are 2 mic inputs. One external on jack and second internal. Those mic shares some internal connections with line in on EXT port. They can be muxed separately, so recording can be doing from one mic and one line in. Source: MWeston.

There's also a great community of chiptune/handheld hacker/musicians over at hexawe that always seem to be happy to talk about this stuff. Hit them up on efnet in #hexawe. :) I really like those guys. LGPT (Piggy) ftw.

I don't know if this is of any interest, but I figure that I'll quote it anyway. :p

This is not at all optimized, but you can already hear how the sound is clearly superior to what we could get on the gp2x/psp/etc, and runs perfect, no frameskip.

Hatari also can run hard drive images, so you can mount the SD card as a hard drive, and other awesome stuff. Hell, run the MIDI out a USB MIDI device and use Notator/Cubase :)

It's from this thread, about skeezix's Atari ST emulator work.

I used Nanoloops and headphones out to get GB playing onstage. Sega can be hacked to connect midi controller to the joypad port [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hFf-_qi3aI ], proly cause Sega has dedicated piece of hardware handling audio.

For sure, the Pandora is going to be a Music-making workstation BEAST!!! I've gotten MIDI working just fine (on Beagleboard/Touchbook), and I just use standard old USB-MIDI class-compatible cables (See EBay), and I also have all of the Korg Nano- (Keys/Pads/Control) products plugged into my Beagle - this works fine as well, as Korg smartly implemented them as standard MIDI class-compliant devices. As soon as I get my Pandora I'll be smoothing everything out and demo'ing the Pandora connected to the Korg Nano-* controllers, running seq24 and maybe the odd soft-synth or three .. ;)

So stay tuned!

Also, there is definitely going to be a lot of attention on this aspect of things - I've heard from a lot of very cool people in the underground portable music-making machines scene, and for instance the GameBoy Music Club guys (here in Vienna) as well as the lsdj/littlepiggy/ds-tracker developers are all very interested in the Pandora - alas we won't see much progress until the Pandora is actually out there in the right hands, but I assure you that the box is going to be very open for music-making .. ;)
