Re: midi signal dissapearing...

You may take a look at the following faq:
which has some guidelines.

Moreover, according to the manual the device can be powered
by external 9V DC adaptor. There should be no problem with
using an adaptor from your pedal-board. You can make
a cable splitter with a plug that fits the merger.
Alternatively you can replace the socket in the merger
with a one that's boss style compatible.

Hope that helps,

Now both work fine, I know this cos a little light comes on if I use them on their own, but NOW, in a slightly new arrangement, I need to send the midi from one box INTO the other, for some reason the second one doesnt get the midi, (no light).

Now Ive never had to use a PSU cable with them before, but is that it? That the power from midi is being used up on the first box so it cant power the second?

So if I power the FIRST box, will the second box be able to power itself from the incoming midi? The reason? well the second box lives in my pedalboard, and I dont want ANOTHER wall wart there (for some reason it hasnt got a standard Boss style socket, looks the same but bigger.. grrrr)


PS; What on earth does everyone on this list do for a living, I suddenly realised that Ive got a whole program to export from FCP, thats 30 video clips, and I havent done anything today, just waffling on LD!!! better get back to work!
