There are also the ADDAC221 10x9 Channel CV to CC MIDI System, and the ADDAC222 4x6 Voices 1V/Octave to MIDI Notes that use TRS MIDI jacks which apparently use the Korg standard.

Hi! Can you please make a correction? We are called ADDAC System and we have two modules that use the Korg standard, those are the ADDAC221 and ADDAC222. Thanks!
Questions? Assistance? Hit me up via PM or send us an email!

Sounds like a passive module to convert between the various formats (and DIN) might be worth doing. Could design it so that its PCB could fit in a small standalone case also, like Mutable Instruments CVPal

An SQ-1 is in my future so maybe this is worth doing. It would be a fairly easy piece of Eagle design work

our WK3 is basically the active version of what you ask for.
As for the passive thing. I just had an idea this morning while sitting in the train to work - how about a little I/O plug in between. Like the Airtenuators or the 0HP stuff? should be somewhere in the 3-10€ area. depending on how many are produced. it could get waaaay lower but then it would need to become a made-in-china mass product.
I also think about making those to midi standard: LINK
(I bought one and it is not)

Modcan touch sequencer. Not sure which standard, but it works with the BSP without messing around

ooh, that is an interesting one. do you have it?
It is not only quarter inch instead of 3.5mm it also is MIDI I/O & CV/Footpedal in one jack. I have not found out how that works from the pics and manual.

Yes, the Mercury7 uses 1/4" but seeing as 3.5mm adapters are trivial, I thought I would add it here.

Yes, I have one and it's can get the closest to a 224 I've heard so far. IMHO all the other fancy 224 plugins and the BAM have ringing artifacts that sound quite different from the original.

There's a 1/4" jack that can be switched between MIDI I/O, expression pedal input, tap tempo, and preset switcher.

Here's the full manual:

Iungo module is CV-to-MIDI, uses Korg specification. Also upcoming Delptronics will be changeable via software.

We are actually working on something but if someone beats us to it I wont be that upset. Its really just something that should exist.

Remember when all the big synth companies got together and worked out a UNIVERSAL solution to transmitting data between devices? :doh:

So I just had one of those ideas you get when you have something important to do but you rather let your head drift somewhere else:

it's just two Thonk PJ3410 soldered together as passive gender changer. Easy as f**k

The solution is easy, which means that the problem is stupid to begin with. ~sigh~
