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.
|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.|
|-||The unit is powered by standard 9V BOSS Pedal adapter or any phone charger (5V) into the micro USB connector.|
|LEDS||One Dual LED for connection status and two LED's indicating MIDI data transfer.|
|MERGE||The Merge (Thru) switch enables a clever function that will merge the data stream from USB with the data stream from MIDI IN and output both on MIDI OUT. If the Merge switch is OFF (normal position), only data from the USB connection will appear on MIDI OUT.|
|FIRMWARE||MIDX-10 firmware can be updated using a Windows PC software. At this time there's no firmware update available. If/when releasing a new firmware it will be downloadable from here.|

NOTE 1: To program the MIDX-10 from a PC Assistant Software you
also need a USB-TO-MIDI
cable (example: Roland UM-ONE MKII)
NOTE 2: To upgrade the MIDX-10 to latest firmware you need the MIDX-10 Assistant PC software and the firmware data file.
The firmware data file is a ".hex" file that needs to be extracted out of the zip file before it can be loaded into the Assistant.
The 4.1 firmware fixes issues with "MIDI THRU" and also contains the Fender Musting Bridge listeining at MIDI channel 1 (can't be changed).
