It's possible to support parallel port midi devices, however information regarding direct hardware-level programming for those interfaces would be required - do they all use a standard method of communication over the parallel port (ie. device initialization etc)?
We don't have any parallel port midi interfaces in house, which would make it difficult in terms of testing... but I will look into the possibility of supporting this type of interface (i suppose there are also serial-port devices as well...)
it seems that the manner in which one writes code to communicate with these interfaces is not only highly variant depending on the device. but access to the required programming documentation is quite tightly restricted by the manufacturers, which is truly unfortunate, as we would have otherwise implemented support for serial and paralell midi interfaces.
