Hi,
I've built myself a power/midi cable to use with my bc16 and i'm concerned about using it with other gear. basically, I've soldered a 9v power supply to the pin 1 and 3 of a midi cable and I want to use it with an Y midi cable (2 female to 1 male).

It looks like this :


PSUl /-- midi data

.....BC16

I'm afraid that the current will be mirrored back to the device sending midi info. Am I right to think this? I just want to be sure I wont fry anything before using it with my sequencer.

Thanks!

Yes, this is exactly what I meant.
on the bc16 the pin 1 and 3 are used to power the unit.
I was worried that these pins might be used for something else on other equipment and that it might damage the equipment if i sent current in it.

English isnt my first language, sorry for the poor writing smile .


Thanks for your anwser.

so again: according to the MIDI standard pins 1 & 3 are not used and left unconnected. i would not doubt that any professional gear follows this standard, however if you wanted to be 100% sure, open the case, i mean...
