  • How to connect please ?

    This may be a stupid question ? - I currently have a midi to USB interface connected between my organ and a computer using the midi IN and midi OUT ports on the organ

    I have now purchased a BK7-M and want to also connect this to the organ as well, but obviously the IN and OUT ports are already used, how can i connect both to the organ at the same time ? - the organ has IN OUT and THRU ports, many thanks in advance

    MIDI is Daisy-chained. I don't know what a BK7-M is, but almost certainly you won't use THRU; USB thing OUT can go to BK7-M IN; BK7-M OUT can go to organ IN; organ OUT can go to USB thing IN.

    In any case, it's almost impossible to damage a MIDI device by connecting it incorrectly.

      The simplest way would be to get another USB to MIDI adapter and connect the BK7-M directly to the computer. Or in anticipation of future GAS, get a 4 In /4 Out MIDI - USB adapter. Also, software like MIDI OX (http://www.midiox.com/) or SoundQuest's MIDI Tools (https://www.squest.com/Products/SQMi...MidiTools.html) have MIDI Mapping tools to help get all the goezouttas to the right goezintas. I'm more familiar with SoundQuest's Tools, they can be used for mapping/routing signals and also things like changing channels, shifting octaves, adjusting velocity values etc.

        Many thanks to both of you, tried KC9UDX suggestion and that worked just fine, except i need to have the computer on all the time even if not using it, to power the USB adaptor.

        A I only need the organ's MIDI connected to either the BK-7M or the computer at any one time, i have used 2 MIDI splitter cables instead.
