MTP-8 MIDI to Parallel Conversion (64 Outputs)


Providing the bridge between any MIDI standard controller and any device capable of being controlled electrically by on/off switches, this range of MIDI-to-Parallel converters can be used in applications such as:

  • Mechanical organs
  • Player pianos
  • Lighting effects
  • Firework displays
  • Musical fountains
  • Remote pipe organ consoles
  • Active museum exhibits
  • Theme park attractions
  • And much more…

There are three devices in the ‘MTP’ range of converters, all of which are supplied as fully assembled printed circuit boards (PCBs), suitable for direct installation into the devices they control or into the enclosure of your choice.

All devices have the following features in common:

  • Built on high quality glass fibre pcbs with gold-plated finish
  • 5-pin DIN sockets for MIDI in and MIDI through
  • Mapping of outputs to MIDI notes and channels can be re-configured as required
  • Responds to note on/off, all notes off, all sounds off, active sensing and reset commands
  • Supports MIDI running status
  • LED shows power on and flashes when in configuration mode
  • Powered by a DC supply anywhere in the range 8 to 35 volts
  • Supplied with comprehensive installation notes
  • RoHS compliant (free from hazardous substances such as lead, mercury and cadmium)


The MTP-8 has the following features in addition to the common features listed above:

  • Supplied as a single high quality glass fibre pcb measuring 210 mm x 70 mm for installation inside a musical instrument or other device
  • Six 3.2mm mounting holes provided on the circuit board
  • 64 outputs (open collector ‘pull-down’), each capable of sinking 500 mA at up to 35 Volts, inductive or resistive load
  • Upgradeable to 1.5A per output by adding a booster module: see the Accessories page for details
  • High quality rising-clamp screw terminal connections provided for easy connection to power supply and output circuits
  • Expression output gives a voltage proportional to note-on velocity

Includes installation instructions and technical support by e-mail/telephone.
