help ! does anyone know where I can get leads with mini-Midi connectors (as used on my SBLive! card) I've got midi i/o on a digital daughter-board, but can't find anyone who can supply with a lead and/or convertors to regular sized 5 pin DIN Midi connectors. I've tried Maplins and other electronic supplies shops but to no avail.
I know I can get an adapter type lead from Maplins, (gameport connector to two x 5 pin DIN) or even Ebay, but I'd like to get or make leads which use the actual midi i/o ports on the daughter-board.
Thanks in advance for your help.
You mean the very short 6 inch long lead that has a mini-DIN one end and a full sized femal DIN on the other end to let you use standard MIDI cables?
I have a pair sitting on my desk right now, if they are of any use to you.

Yes! They are just keyboard adaptors which go from the old AT keyboard DIN plug to the PS/2 type keyboard plug.
I got mine from Creative's on-line store at http://uk.europe.creative.com
The page with these leads is
Good grief! So they are!
Rev, I may well be in touch, if rummaging through my box of old leads fails to produce a 'keyboard' extension/adapter leads.
Steve, thanks for pointing this out.
cheers to all
OK. I'll leave them to one side for you. Any news of the Eastern PU?
one of my old DIN to PS2 adapters even has 'MIDI IN' stamped on the side
