ALPHA / OMEGA bi-directional active RJ45 MIDI sender kit
Product Code: RJ45_MIDI
Units in Stock: 1
ALPHA α and OMEGA Ω MIDI over CAT5
Mindburner active send and receive units
What do they do?
MIDI will usually work fine over cable runs up to 15 meters, over this, it can be problematic.These active devices transmit MIDI over long distance, 300M plus
How do I connect them?
- Connect a MIDI master (keyboard/sequencer etc) to the ALPHA device MIDI input
- Add 5v DC power.
- Connect length of fully wired CAT5 network cable (not included) from ALPHA to OMEGA device.
- Connect MIDI slave device (module/drum machine etc) to the OMEGA device MIDI out.
- The master will now trigger the slave over distance
- MIDI also works from OMEGA to ALPHA in the same manner, simultaneously
How are they powered?
Comes with 2.1 to USB lead to power from 5v USB source
No USB? Can also use pretty much any 5-7v DC 'wallwart' type power transformer. With a 2.1 mm female plug. Positive on the Tip of the plug.
A decent 5v USB iphone type power supply will also work
