Connect to midi ports on intellijel cases rather than using expander?
#1
I came across this thread on the intellijel forum where there's a suggestion for connecting Disting up to the midi ports that are built into intellijel performance cases....

https://forum.intellijel.com/t/7u-case-midi-ports-reusable/462 

Is there any chance of this working with Nerdseq too? Is there a pin diagram available for the connector the nerdseq midi expander uses? Space is tight on my mobile set up, so being able to use those ports instead of the expander would be really handy.

I guess it won't work as there is a little circuit in the Midi expander for isolation and buffering.

On the Midi header (backside of the NerdSEQ) are the portpins mapped with the signals coming directly from the microcontroller pins. These are not direct usable for Midi signals. An adapter inside would be needed.

Honestly I wouldn't mind running a little adapter on the inside of my 7u case to get the midi working and free up some HP.

I'm def interested in doing so.
Can you please point out an adapter that can do the job ??

The midi expander without frontpanel = adapter

Wasn’t there a thread somewhere where someone soldered things up so they could hide the NerdSEQ IO expander inside their case, surfacing the MIDI from (if I remember correctly) TRS MIDI jacks in a 1U tile? It might not be the cleanest solution in the world, but I’d imagine much the same could be done for the Intellijel case jacks if you’re that pressed for HP.

Prompted by a recent MW NerdSEQ thread comment: https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewto...8#p3368768 (Perhaps the threads here and there have some humans in common, though maybe under different usernames?)

I found the other thread here which I referenced in my reply just above: https://xor-electronics.com/forum/showth...hp?tid=807
