The DE15 connector was originally intended for interfacing the gameport only (in a PC).
Electrically and logically, the MPU-401 and the gameport are two separate devices.
They merely share that mechanical connector.
Which means, that gameport spiltter cables likely do not care about the MIDI part (two pins) at all.
Simplest would be to mod an existing joystick or joystick cable. Or the sound card :
Someone could just attach two pins (plus one for ground if the soundcard gets modded) and redirect them to a separate DE15 plug which connects with the midi cable.
To do so, someone could re-use an old gameport bracket intended for a motherboard, a cheap soundcard, a multi i/o card , for example.
