Cat 5 MIDI application

The MidiExtender MIDI-1001 system consists of two MIDI-1001 transceivers. These units utilize transmission techniques that allow standard MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) data signals to be transmitted and received over a standard CAT5 data transmission cable over distances of 1000 feet.  The unit is designed to operate in simplex, full duplex or drop-and-repeat modes. 

 The MIDI-1001 will operate continuously at all data rates from DC to 1 Mb/sec.   

If your link distance is greater then 1000 feet or you need noise immunity, see our Fiber Optic MIDI link the MIDI-2001
