In order to control pre-MIDI synthesisers from a modern MIDI instrument or sequencer, you need to change the digital MIDI messages into the kind of signals the pre-MIDI synth can understand.

For the price, this really is the best value converter on the market, anywhere. The versatility of this unit is awesome. Just look at the features

Power cord included, all other leads are sold separately as we do not know what you want to connect to.

ACCESSORIES

KADI Ports

DCB BoardKADI port for Pro-2000 including a KADI cable*
This KADI port option can either operate as a KADI port, or as a Wasp port, software selectable.
It does not have any of the other modes of operation offered by the dedicated Pro-KADI box.

*Can optionally be supplied with a Wasp cable


DCB Port for Pro-2000 (including 14 pin DCB cable)

  • DCB port for the Pro-2000 including cable with a 14 pin Centronics connector suitable for use with all Juno-60s and some Jupiter 8 synths. (see note below*)

    Note that this interface is one direction only. It enables you to play the synth from your MIDI master keyboard or computer sequencer. If you want a bi-directional interface, you will need to get a Pro-DCB.

    DCB will only control the notes (and patch changes on Jupiter 8s). Any other control will have to be done using the Aux or clock outputs of the Pro-2000.

    *Some Jupiter 8s have a 14 pin connector, some have a 20 pin connector while some have no DCB port at all.


DCB Port for Pro-2000 (including 20 pin DCB cable)

  • DCB port for the Pro-2000 including cable with a 20 pin flat connector suitable for use with some Jupiter 8 synths. (see note below*)

    Note that this interface is one direction only. It enables you to play the synth from your MIDI master keyboard or computer sequencer. If you want a bi-directional interface, you will need to get a Pro-DCB.

    DCB will only control the notes (and patch changes on Jupiter 8s). Any other control will have to be done using the Aux or clock outputs of the Pro-2000.

    *Some Jupiter 8s have a 14 pin connector, some have a 20 pin connector while some have no DCB port at all.
