Default Deger -> USB -> Computer?

I see on the internet that there are several ways that a 3.5mm TRS (stereo headphone) has been wired to the 5 pin MIDI depending on the manufacturer. This is the midi cable that comes with a Deger and Deger has kindly supplied me with the convention they use. However, the Deger convention seems (to an ignoramus like me) not consistent with either of the 2 common conventions in use by those like Korg, IK (iRig), etc.*

My simple goal is to hook up a Deger to my computer via USB to use it as a MIDI controller which requires a MIDI to USB interface that would be subject to how the manufacturer wires their cables.

Can anyone recommend/confirm that a particular midi to usb interface works with the Deger and whether you used the supplied Deger cable or a different one.

Thank you!

Default Re: Deger -> USB -> Computer?

I had to purchase a female to female MIDI plug adapter and a MIDI USB converter.

Using the MIDI attachment that comes with the Deger II, plug in the Deger MIDI jack into one end of the female to female adapter and the MIDI IN into the other end, and then plug the USB into the computer.

On Windows 10 I downloaded Anvil Studio and installed it. In Anvil Studio, in the Track properties, I selected "General MIDI - Microsoft Wavetable".
