This MIDI keyboard cable has a 15 pin plug at one end and two 5-pin din connectors at the other. It also has an extension off the 15-pin connector so you can still connect a joystick if you want to.
N.B. Correct Connection Procedure:
- Connect the 15-pin connector to the joystick port on the back of your soundcard. Because it is a rather large connector, you may want to secure it by tightening the attached screws on each side.
- Connect the two 5-pin connectors to your MIDI instrument. A common mistake is usually made at this point. You may notice that one 5-pin connector says "in" and the other says "out." This refers to the signal flow from the soundcard. Therefore, you must crisscross the two connectors... Connect the "in" connector on the cable to the "out" connector on your MIDI instrument. Then connect the "out" connector on the cable to the "in" connector on your MIDI instrument.
