These cables have allowed me to color code everything to my synths. I also got a midi multiplier / hub so if I dont have cables color coded can be confusing to see what is routed where. Thomann cables are a good alternative to the most expensive ones, quality is great and does what it is meant to do. I have midi connected from my Maschine midi output, into the midi multiplier and then into the various synths. Quite a lot of length and very little delay / latency so all good! If you are looking for an affordable alternative to the expensive options, this is it.
