124 - cool MIDI-setup

Ok, it took a long time to discover this trick. So read it carefully! It's very important to use the right midi-cables. If you buy cheap ones, they won't do it! Ask your dealer for the best cables he can get! They have to be fast. Remind: the more pins they have, the easier and faster they work! Next step: Ask for new midi-connectors for your musicmachines (e.g. sampler, synth, ...). They have to fit to the midi-cables you buy, so take a good look! Now the trick: ALWAYS, yes:ALWAYS: check, if you plug the RIGHT cable into the RIGHT connector! DONT connect midi in with midi in or midi out with midi out! ALWAYS connect MIDI IN with MIDI OUT and MIDI OUT with MIDI IN!!! GOT IT? REALLY? Sleep over it, and then you'll realize how this tip changed your life.

It took me 6 months to discover this style of connection. Hope I helped you out of your midiprobs!
