    I bought three USB midi cable adapters some 6 euro each, i found out they just do not work, out is flaky and into synth is dead. So I read they are missing optocouplers a 3 euro, which i probably can manage to solder.

    But i need the cables not only for synth “device” to but also for PC to device, bidirectional use and sysex communication.

    Anyone had luck getting these to work after installing the optocouplers, or is it trashbin material?

    By the way what “cheap” and fully functional USB midi cables can you recommend.

    I have this one it served me good although i never tried a full sysex dump with it.
    Unfortunately it seem both out of production and out of stock.

    So what USB midi cabel do you use?
