[also posted on fb morningstar group, but haven’t received a lot of feedback).
I’m getting ready to begin soldering all my analog and midi cables for my board. I purchased all the wiring, 5 pin plugs, 3.5mm TRS plugs, and 1/4 TRS plus.
My Question…I have the MS Midi Box and a MC8. There’s not a lot of info on wiring the midibox so I’m reaching out for help from the experts.
As a wishlist request for Morningstar Engineering, it would be so helpful if we had some example diagrams to illustrate wiring use cases from the Midi Box to the MCx and multiple Pedals.
For the Midi Box, do I solder a 3.5mm TRS plug on one end of the cable (for the MIdi Box 3.5mm output) and a 5 pin plug to the other end of the cable (Pedal Midi Input)…when there is no TRS input. Like an octopus from the box out to all the 5pins or 1/4 inch TRS?
If yes, do I then ignore the 5 pin midi through on the pedal?
Finally to get it to connect to the MC8, do I then wire the 5pin output on MidiBox to the 5pin on the MC8?
I’m new to midi in general and I want to make sure I’m soldering correctly. These cables and plugs aren’t cheap. Lol.
I do have some CB pedals so with that I assume it would be 3.5 to 1/4 TRS.
Thanks in advance for any help! And please don’t hesitate to ask for any clarifications on my setup.
For my midi pedals, here is what I have:
CB Meris CXM 1977 - 5 pin In and Thru
CB Benson Preamp MKII - 5 pin In and Thru
H9 Max - 5 pin In and Thru
Disaster Area Smart Clock - 5 pin In and Thru
Source Audio Ventris - 5 pin In and Thru
Source Audio Nemesis - 5 pin In and Thru
CB Gravitas - 1/4 TRS
CB Thermae - 1/4 TRS
Source Audio C4 - 3.5mm TRS
