Connect Your TRS Type B devices to standard MIDI 5 pin DIN Cables
This MIDI Adapter enables you to connect MIDI devices that use standard MIDI cables to the stereo minijacks that use the Type B standard. The adapter has a male stereo minijack at one end, and a female 5 pin DIN MIDI connector on the other, and is 22 cm/8.5″ 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||Stereo Minijack||1010music Type B MIDI Adapter|
|Current Source||Pin 4||Tip||Tip|
|Current Sink||Pin 5||Ring||Ring|
|Shield||Pin 2||Sleeve||Not Connected|
