Re: Roland GK cable noise issue

Good logica thinking, van, but in my case there this GK cable isn't
even sending audio - only data to from strings pitch reading. But you
could send also audio through this cable and I assume that's the weak
point causing its fragility. I was looking for a shorter cable but
could only find the 5 meter long one in the shops.
