Connecting MIDI devices

By connecting the microX's MIDI connectors to an
external MIDI device you can transfer sound set-
tings and performance data such as note messages
between your external MIDI device and the
microX.
About MIDI
MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Inter-
face, and is a world-wide standard for exchanging
various types of musical data between electronic
musical instruments and computers. When MIDI
cables are used to connect two or more MIDI
devices, performance data can be exchanged
between the devices, even if they were made by
different manufacturers.
MIDI connectors
MIDI IN:
This connector receives MIDI data.
Use this to play the microX from another MIDI
device, or from an external sequencer.
MIDI OUT:
This connector transmits MIDI data.
Use this to control external MIDI devices, or to
record into an external sequencer.
