Can i Convert a 5 DIN ( MIDI Cable ) to PS/2 Port ? Answered
Hi Guyz ,
i've tried many ways to get this done but ended up with the same result .... no connection what so ever to the computer ...
1 - i went all over the country for a MIDI to USB converter but they are all expensive and hard to find
2 - i tried making a MIDI to Serial/MIDI Port cable which exists in a sound card i have ,, also didnt work because am not so into the electronic stuff and making my own DIY electronics ...
3 - now i have an idea that came to my mind 2 days ago ... PS/2 cables are some how ( Mini Midi ) .. if i may say ..
i bought a 5 DIN to PS/2 Extension which looks like this ( http://www.cablesnmor.com/ProductImages/k23642.jpg )

i connected the MIDI Cable to my Piano Keyboard " MIDI OUT " port and plugged the other end of the cable to the MIDI to PS/2 Extension .... then i connected the PS/2 end of the extension to the ( PS/2 to USB converter ....
i plugged the usb end of the converter to my computer and started a software called FL STUDIO which can receive MIDI input from external devices such as midi controllers ..
the whole thing didnt work ... and i still need help on what to do with this issue and how can i convert a MIDI cable to PS/2 ..... is it possible ???
thank you in advance :)
