MIDX-10 BOSS/Roland USB to MIDI Converter
"MIDI-control and/or connect a Ext. Synth/iPad - Without a PC"

MIDX-10 is the missing link to communicate with BOSS/Roland USB devices over 5-Pin MIDI. This small unit replaces a PC or LapTop for doing USB-to-MIDI conversion.

It allow you to connect a MIDI Foot controller to fully control your BOSS/Roland unit and also allow any Guitar-to-MIDI conversion to be forwarded to an external synth or iPad Soft Synth at full MIDI speed.
Works with, but not limited to: GT-10, GT-100, GT-001, GP-10, VG-99 and GR-55

MIDX-10 is also a fully Compliant US MIDI Host for unlimited use
with any other equipment such as Fishman Triple Play (FTP) etc..

Connectors  
MIDI IN Standard 5-Pin DIN MIDI connector
MIDI OUT Standard 5-Pin DIN MIDI connector
USB Standard USB A (Host) connector, max 100mA
POWER One standard 5.1mm connector for external power supply (not included) and one micro USB connector for phone chargers.
Power  
- The unit is powered by standard 9V BOSS Pedal adapter or any phone charger (5V) into the micro USB connector.
Control  
LEDS One Dual LED for connection status and two LED's indicating MIDI data transfer.
