DIN5 cables and connectors from CableWholesale are a necessary accessory for recording studio technicians and for people using legacy computer keyboards. The DIN circular connector interface was first introduced in the early 1970s, and the 5-pin version was used for IBM Model F keyboards manufactured throughout the 1980s and 1990s. The plug style was also adopted for MIDI cables, a communications protocol (short for Musical Instrument Digital Interface) that allows electronic musical instruments and other analog audio devices to connect and communicate in real-time. Whether you're a music professional or love your AT keyboard too much to give it up, our MIDI cabling will ensure reliable data transfer and sequencing.
Are all MIDI cables the same? No, they're not, and CableWholesale has several styles to meet your connection needs. Our 5-pin MIDI male to male cables are durably constructed and have double shielding to reduce interference and signal loss. Order short 5-foot MIDI cables for compact setups or longer 10-foot cables for larger spaces. Bi-directional AT keyboard cables have a straight pinout design with non-corrosive gold-plated contacts and a molded PVC hood to protect the wiring. If the standard 6-foot DIN5 cable isn't long enough for your equipment, we have AT keyboard extension cables with a male plug and an AT female port for daisy-chaining.
With the right MIDI connector cables, you can connect any compatible keyboard or controller to computers, sequencers, synthesizers and other devices. Musicians, recorder, and legacy computer enthusiasts swear by the MIDI interface, and our fluke-tested cables will flawlessly transmit commands and protocols. CableWholesale guarantees all of our cables against defects and will repair or replace any DIN5 cable that stops working for as long as you own it.
