New to MIDI...

Would like to hook Casio keyboard (MIDI in and out) to Aardvark Q10 (MIDI in and out)

Do I buy 3 pin, 5 pin or 7 pin cables?

They all seem to look the same, but sounds like some only have some of the pins wired? Is there one choice that will ALWAYS work? (Like CAT5 RJ45 computer cables... only 4 lines are needed, but if all 8 are wired, it will still work fine?)

Thanks in advance,

Jim

Yes, indeed not all the pins are wired on a MIDI cable but you should get the cables specifically made for MIDI, as the pins wired on those are for voltage and data content.

Go to your local music store and they should have them..they're very cheap!

Peace
