TRS to MIDI Adaptor Cable


Custom-made adapter cable converts 5-pin (DIN) MIDI output to 1/4″ MIDI input.

This cable requires pin 2 of your controller’s MIDI output to be earthed / grounded.  If you’re not sure whether your controller or MIDI device meets this requirement please contact its manufacturer.
