I’m happy with my IK Multimedia iRig Keys keyboard and use it mostly with USB connection. But there is OUT port with 7 pins socket. I have browsed the web to find out connections for it, but failed. I would be grateful if someone could help me to make a cable or adapter for IK multimedia socket to regular 5 pin DIN. Thank you.

Is the 7-pin port the first one on the back of the unit? If so, that appears to be a specialized lightning connector? If that is the case, it may not be possible. The manual says it is "iOS port" and looks like it comes with a cable that has that 7-pin connector on one end and a lightning connector on the other. Seems an odd way to do it.

However, if you have one of the "2" models (Keys 2 or Keys 2 Pro), they appear to have 3.5mm TRS MIDI in and out ports, and include a TRS MIDI out cable.

Ehr - what?

A 'lightning connector'? Are you referring to the sort of lightning that zaps down from the sky during a thunderstorm and kills people, or damages trees/buildings.

Maybe you mean 'lighting'? To do with lights. I guess a LOT safer on a keyboard??

Haha, no, "Lightning" is the name Apple gave to one of their proprietary connectors. It's on iPhones, iPads, and maybe a few other Apple devices. So this particular port/7-pin weird cable allows you to connect the keyboard to your Apple device.

Aha - so that should (maybe) have been 'Lightning' (proper name)?

Then again, it doesn't help that I'd had practically nothing to do with ANY Apple/Mac device, and don't plan to. Then again, my wife asks me when her iPhone misbehaves, and I can usually get it to do whatever for her, even if I've no idea what I'm doing!
