A 4 ft Type B MIDI Adapter
This cable enables you to connect MIDI devices that use standard MIDI cables to the stereo minijacks that use the Type B standard. The adapter cable has a male stereo minijack at one end, and a male 5 pin DIN MIDI connector on the other, and is 1.42 meters/4′ 8″ long. It is also useful as a converter for connecting to other MIDI devices that use a different mapping of MIDI signals to the stereo minijacks.
Early 1010music music products use the Type B mapping of MIDI signals to stereo minijacks. Bitbox mk2 and bitbox micro can use mini TRS Type A or Type B for MIDI inputs. Bitbox micro uses Type B for MIDI outputs.
The diagram to the right shows the numbering of the pins on a MIDI connector and the labels of the connection components of a stereo minijack. Type B products are compatible with cables that use the following mapping of MIDI signals between female MIDI connectors and stereo minijacks:
|MIDI Signal||MIDI Connector||MIDI TRS Audio Jack||1010music 4′ MIDI Cable|
|Current Source||Pin 4||Tip||Tip|
|Current Sink||Pin 5||Ring||Ring|
