This is a handy adapter that allows you to command and control MIDI devices via serial communication over a standard MIDI cable (5 pin DIN).

The MidiOut Me is a handy adapter that allows you, with a microcontroller (or other UART serial data source) transmitting at 31250 baud, to command and control MIDI devices over a standard MIDI (5 Pin DIN) cable.

Kit Parts:

  • 1x Midi In Me board
  • 1x 5 pin DIN connector
  • 1x 220 ohm resistor
  • 4x 1x2pin male headers for easy mounting on a breadboard
  • 1x 1x3pin male header for GND, +5VDC, and data access
Build Notes:
  • 1x 5 pin DIN connector: The provided DIN connector is an SDS-50J. The datasheet for it is here: http://www.cui.com/product/resource/sds-xxj.pdf
  • 1x 100 ohm resistor: Solder into the R1 location
  • 4x 1x2pin male headers: These are optional but useful if you want to be able to plug it onto a breadboard.
  • 1x 1x3pin male header: You can use either a male or female header.
