My MC8 arrived last week and so far I’m loving it!
Right now it is controlling a TC Flashback, Boss MD500, Boss RC5, Voodoo Lab GCX and a Two Notes Captor X.
I also have 2x amazing 3 switch AUX pedals made by Bright Onion Pedals here in the UK.
I have one annoying pedal which only has a midi IN - the Whammy DT. It’s on the floor, not in the rack, so I’m thinking, is there a way I can connect it separately using the Midi out through the third of the four 1/4 jacks? If so can someone recommend the cable please as I’ve looked and can’t find one.
The Whammy DT is standard 5 pin midi in, so would need 1/4 to standard Midi. All I can seem to find is smaller (like the one I use for the Boss looper)…
Thanks for the replies. Especially the mention of ‘type a’.
I want to rule out making my own, so really just looking for a ready made product I can buy somewhere. So far I’m still coming up empty handed with only 5 pin midi to type A 1/8 coming up in my searches. Is it just a case of buying that and sticking a 1/8 to 1/4 TRS adapter on top?
Strymon TRS Midi cables aren’t standard type A or B.
In fact they have a proprietary circuit inside the cable like this picture above.
For connecting with Whammy DT you can go with the 5 pin to TRS type A Midi cable plus the 1/8 to 1/4 TRS adapter.
