DIY-1200 sync cable KIT

Post by b3nsf » Tue Aug 26, 2014 10:43 pm

This project is on hold, because I got a full time job and don't have time to hand make midi adapters any more, however there is a seller on ebay who is making these in china and they are half the price I was charging...

http://www.ebay.com/usr/seaweedsound?_t ... 7675.l2559

http://www.ebay.com/itm/EURORACK-Modula ... 3026523377

below is the original post:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

#Hey guys!



#I needed one of those DJ-1200 cables and found the parts, I bought extras #so if anybody wants to buy "kits" (you provide wire) I will sell them #for super cheap! 6$ + shipping or 7$ if you want me to supply the #wire. These work with expert sleepers modules and ALM pamela's workout.

#It comes with one female midi style DIN connector and two 3.5mm #male plugs

#I am now using expensive Canare GS-4 wire for all cables and kits!

#I will make cables in small batches, it takes about 45 mins to make one #cable, the cost of a completed cable is 25$ because it is very #difficult, thanks for understanding! I had to raise prices because of material #costs... again, thanks for your kind consideration!!

#shipping is thru USPS 6.80$ for USA and 9.50$ for most of Canada and #13.50$ for most of Europe, shipped in bubblewrap and in a box to #protect the contents...

b3nsf actually built the cable for me and shipped me the finished product. Works great and looks very professional. I'm using it to sync a PW to a Koma RH-301.

Just to say I ordered a completed cable and it arrived extremely quickly and is very well made. Great service, very happy! (I had waited months for expert sleepers to make another run). Cheers b3nsf and merry christmas everyone!

Hi b3nsf,
Does each 1/8" plug output a clock signal? This would be fantastic! Can I order one from you?
Regards,
Rich

Hello Rich!

Red = Run signal
Yellow = clock signal

both are required for DinSync, and this works with pamella's workout :sb:

Hi! I am looking to buy my friend this as a gift because he's had a hell of a time finding a replacement for his broken dj-1200. It's for Pamela's Workout. Please let me know if you can sell me the cable or just the connectors/parts! Thank you!!!

I edited the first post to reflect what I have been doing all along regarding completed cables, and their prices, which have not changed since day one of this fool-hearty :hihi: endeavor.... please keep in mind when you contact me for a cable, I make each one by hand in my kitchen and it's not fun making them at all, it is time consuming and frustrating dealing with flakey people who don't write back to polite pm's :bang:

And to the people who have been nice to me, I really really appreciate you fine human beings, I wish the world was filled with people like you!!! :sb:
