This helpful tool is the Chase Bliss MIDIBox, which allows you to connect Chase Bliss (as well as Empress) pedals to a standard MIDI cable – specifically it convers the standard 5-pin MIDI cable to a simple TRS patch cable. There are internal jumpers so that you can make any port you want compatible with Chase Bliss, Empress, or Meris products. The jumpers on this product are simply making them “ring active” (instead of “tip active”) on the TRS jack so that they interface to the Chase Bliss Audio tap/midi jack with just a common TRS patch cable.
