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 used by 1010music products.  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.  

The MIDI device industry has not standardized on a common method for mapping MIDI signals to stereo minijacks. In the absence of a standard, 1010music has chosen to use the Type B mapping that is commonly available. 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. The MX4 and other 1010music 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
Current Source Pin 4 Tip
Current Sink Pin 5 Ring
Shield Pin 2 Sleeve
