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.

cheers

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.

email me at <email>

Yes! They are just keyboard adaptors which go from the old AT keyboard DIN plug to the PS/2 type keyboard plug.

Thanks guys...........

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
