Are there any simple (commercially available) 'switches' that can bypass a midi signal quickly - rather than unplugging the cable?

I have some merge setups that I like to use when I'm recording parts to a sequencer - but then it trips me up when I go to play the songs and every synth play whatever channel the MPC is on... - and it seems like this would be a normal thing.... Is there any precedence for this? OR do you have any directions on how I may build something like this?

:D

Do people use Google any more?

I did a quick check, and found a similar question asked on another forum.

Long discussion, suggesting various problems, also some solutions.

So, check this:

May help?

It's not commercially available, as far as I know, but you could make one easily:

1. Go to a computer store (or online) and get an old-school AT keyboard extension (same DIN-5 plug as MIDI)
2. Use any switch you like to interrupt pin 4 and/or 5 (one pin is sufficient)
3. Mount as desired
