So I dragged out my Sound Canvas SC-55 and AWE64 Gold, neither used for many years.

AWE 64 Gold still works like new (after EPROM reset) and Sound Canvas powers up but I'm lacking a midi cable and cannot find it anywhere.

Looking online for replacement cable and really cannot find anything (maybe I'm crap at searching).

Seen a few on Ali Express but looking them I'm not sure about quality plus never used Ali Express and not sure if I want to start.

All I can find is the the below, looks ok but no idea. JUST REALISED THE SELLER IS IN CHINA

Tried a few music shops in Manchester who could make me one up there and then but they have not stocked the connectors for the soundcard end for years.

Anyway bit long winded so I apologise but this is driving me nuts trying to find this cable, any help greatly appreciated.

Cheers

The following is a type used and trusted by many here on the forums. Take the option to include a 1m MIDI cable, or supply your own MIDI cable of any length.

Other types exist but, in the absence of a specific endorsement, they can be hit-or-miss functionality-wise.

Thanks for quick reply and I reckon that will do just the trick, just ordered it now with a cable.

Thanks
