midi socket 5pol Din 180°

13 posts in this topic

i could get 500 Midi Socket for 127€ excl Import taxe from china --- which give about 0,25-0,5€ for a Socket ---

 

anyone interested to take 100? (i am in austria)

- dont think i want to hold more then 100 here in my workplace - so 400 would be aviable.

 

best mike.

Which Brand and model? A datasheet/Picture? Are they all in plastic?
You got sample? Quality? ;)

I think you will get trouble with it.
Especially if you use MIDI8,

they seem very deep(plastic), It seems that they will have the same body regardless of the number of pins.

Maybe ask @Hawkeye if you want some cheap DIN sockets. I think he has a few. Myself I'll stick with alright-quality ones as I don't trust the super cheap ones.

Yes me too, I'm sorry Mike.
It's a big part of the budget but it's an important component...

uuuuh.... i would not dare to sell those! :). Mike, if you want some really cheap ones, search for "Diodenbuchsen" on pollin.de, currently they are sold for 1.9 cents per piece (yes, no typo! :))

Of course i could not hold back and ordered some a while back! What i received was part rusty or they had at least discolored metal and i would only use them for test projects, never for a SEQ or a LoopA :). As i ordered them from my business account, my return options were a bit limited - but as they clearly did not look as shiny as in the picture advertised, I told them, that i was not too happy with their looks, corroded metal and all, and they agreed to send me new ones (they seem to have a lot :), which they promised me would be "flawless". In the end, the ones i received looked about the same and i decided, that it cost me (and poor Andy! :)) already too much time and I stopped that side project! They will be great for a nice "art" photo project with about 2000 MIDI connectors in a single picture, though, but I did not yet have the time for that, hehe! :)

In short: you get what you pay for and after this very interesting reorientation by a cheap seller, i am now fully with Andy and Bruno, don't save on the connectors! You might just be recording the best live song in a long time, then a MIDI connection to a synth goes bad and that was that... :). The bad thing here is, with crappy connections you may be introducing "bugs" that are really hard to localize, as they just appear sporadically, you might think there is a software problem somewhere, when indeed, it is just a loose contact.

Have a nice weekend, y'all!
Peter

A while ago I ordered those midi connectors and I’m happy with it. 

https://de.aliexpress.com/item/-/32832191248.html

anyway: I think it’s hard to tell if those connectors are good or not. They look good and they feel nice. The midi plug has a tight fit. But apart from that? How should they differ from Kycon?

If you want I could send you a few samples of those. I ordered 50pc a few weeks ago.

actually it looks better, mechanically and electrically.

like you said it's difficult to know. It's maybe mass production which decreases the price or material used and time will give the answer ;)
