Also considering getting Midi or USB I/O to use with some older gear, and didn’t understand the basics from the description in the Littlebits shopping page. Apologies in advance for beginner questions:
When I think of MIDI interface, I think of the old 5-pin DIN connector… Is that the same thing as MIDI today, and if so is there an adapter for gear using 5-pin DIN? Does the MIDI littlebits come with an adapter? Confused because the MIDI littlebits has two inputs (MIDI in and usb i/o).
M-Audio Radium 49- I’d like to play on this controller to the Littlebits (oscillator, etc). It has MIDI out (5-pin DIN) and a USB port (for Garageband, etc.). Which one do I need, MIDI or USB I/O? If the MIDI littlebits, what adapters do I need and which port (MIDI in or usb MIDI i/o) does the keyboard controller go in to?
Roland Sound Canvas (original SC-55 from 1991)-- Same question as above… this only has the 5-pin DIN MIDI ports, how do I physically hook it up to the MIDI Littlebits? (what else do I need to buy)?
Many thanks in advance! Sorry again for the basic questions.
