Well, I got my batteries recharged and fired up my old TRG Pro again. What a great little device considering it was first made around 2001.

As I hardly ever use this device the batteries are always going flat and it loses everything. However, as it has a CF card (rare for this vintage of Palm PDA) I can restore everything in one go.

So, what can you do with a TRG Pro these days? Well the honest answer is not too much. Most of the apps on the TRG Pro which are of any use require connection to an external MIDI device, so you can’t do much with it by itself which is a shame really.

If I’m honest this is a museum piece and not much more although I constantly toy with the idea of writing some MIDI application for it to make it do something strange. Somehow I can’t see myself getting around to doing that.

But for a device this old it is great to keep it around and for it’s day it was very innovative. By today’s standards it isn’t too good for much though. Still, maybe I’ll connect it up to my MU15 and get it to make nice GM sounds. I’d rather connect it to an SG20, but that’s a whole different story.
