Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI)
The MIDI protocol allows communication between a computer and a digital synthesizer (keyboard, drum machine, etc.) by transmitting how the notes are to be produced. For example, commands like note-on, note-off, pitch-shift, and tempo create much smaller files and more realistic music, relying on the synthesizer to create all audible sounds.
This cable features durable, serviceable, nickel-plated connector bodies and the stranded copper conductors are surrounded by a dense copper shield to ensure interference-resistant data transfer.
Discreet 5-Pin Connectors
Each of the five pins on the connectors of these MIDI cables are wired to support all MIDI functions, including uploading and downloading data and relaying SysEx information.
Hosa makes their cables in a variety of lengths to suit virtually any application.
