Why is it that...
« on: June 19, 2017, 09:16:40 AM »

....if I want to get my GP-10 and GR-20 talking to each other it's cheaper to use a raspberry pi with a couple of midi/USB cables than to buy an official gk splitter cable?

You get higher latency using 5 pin MIDI connection feeding GR-20

lower latency with US-20 or GK Splitter feeding the GK 13 pin input

you can DIY build your own Gk Y Splitter cable adapter  too

It's tempting seeing as I have only two devices.
