Hi David,

The 5-pin 180 degrees DIN connector is used for a variety of targets,
including audio, DIN-sync and MIDI. In case of a standard Jupiter-8, the
5-pin DIN port is used to sync the Arpeggiator to external DIN Sync sources.
It should read 'Arpeggio Clock' underneath the port. Now if your Jupiter-8
has more 5-pin DIN connectors on the back, then there is a possibility that
your synth has been retrofitted with MIDI.


<<hi everyone, for those of you not currently doing time in sing sing prison
i have a question.
on the back of my jupiter 8 there is a midi port, thing is i cant get it to
work, no problem so far since the ad didnt mention midi at all, i was
surprised it turned out to have a midi port. But i just saw a picture of a
dcb port (i thought maybe this midi port is actually a dcb port) but it dont
look nothing like it.

so we have midi port which every is familiar with and dcb which looks
something like a real small printer port, So what does the standard
non-midified back of a jupiter look like ?
Just in case i got lucky and it is a midified jupiter, yeah extremly lucky,
is there a special way to operate it ??

ok thnx david>>
