Great concept, poor realisation
Black Dog Bob 15.04.2019
I needed to connect four devices on my guitar FX pedal board via MIDI. Space was at a premium, and I wanted all the power, audio and MIDI cabling to be tidily out of sight underneath the board.
I thought I'd found the perfect solution when I came across these right-angled MIDI connectors - with very flat profile plugs enabling the cable to drop straight down from the devices, taking up no valuable space.
I would have thought this sort of application was exactly what this product was intended for.
In which case, why on Earth have the pins been put at exactly the angle that renders the product useless for this purpose?!
MIDI ports on devices are always closely grouped. The five pin holes are always at the bottom or top of the port. The pins on this product are placed such that the flat section of the plug lies parallel to the device, rather than perpendicular. This inevitably means that it lies across, and blocks, the adjacent MIDI port.
This is a fundamental design flaw, in my opinion - I really can't see a use for this product in its current format.
The product is well-made, but if you need to use more than one MIDI port on your device, give this one a swerve.

So glad i found this

I'm happy I found this. The angle is perfect for what I need. I use it to connect Line6 M5 to a midi switch. The quality is good. If you're not sure which length to get 30cm or 60cm go for the longer one! - you can easily tie the remainder in a loop - there I helped you decide! :).

For some this cable might be a problem because it can cover other inputs on your gear.

Nice quality, be sure about the angle.

Very nice quality cable, does the job. Only thing that got me was the angle. The DIN-connector position follows the cord, which will block nearby MIDI ports.

Perfect

I love it, flattens out the back of my Octatrack perfectly so I can nudge other gear close up to it. The flat profile cable is tidy too. Just make sure the pins are oriented the right way for the port you are going to use so the cable shroud isn't blocking anything!
