G System – Midi Cable pin usage

G System – Midi Cable pin usage

Hi All,

I want my new (to me) G System control my JVM410 channels using MIDI.  I also want to use 4cm to connect the two and would like a single snake to connect the two together.

I had a bright? idea about getting a company that builds a 4-TRS snake/loom cable converted to have MIDI connectors on the 4th cable (I only need 3 for the G to JVM audoi connections).  The company can do this but it would only have pins 2, 4, 5 connected.  Is that a problem?

I will see if I have an old 3 pin connected DIN cable around to prove this will work but from looking at the MIDI spec only these Pins should be required anyway.
