Defective Records Software announced the availability of 202 Hack for OS X. 202 Hack is an application that converts sequence information stored in standard MIDI files into a format compatible with Roland MC-202 sequences.
You choose one or two MIDI channels, whose note information is then extracted from the MIDI file and converted into the "internal" and/or "external" sequences of the 202. Accent and Portamento can also be coded for, as well as some post-processing tricks to generate Roland TB-303-like slides.
The output of 202 Hack is an audio file that can then be played by your Mac into the 202's "tape in" jack.
202 Hack was written in the Java 1.0 computer language, and was originally released in March, 1997. It has been recently been reworked to run on modern operating systems, including Mac OS X.
202 Hack is available now for $15 USD.
