Wireless MIDI device on NS3

Postby onzki » 26 Jul 2020, 15:48

Hi everyone! I just purchased a wireless MIDI device, designed to be powered direct from port. Anybody knows the wiring schematic of NS3 Ha88? The device manual specifically mentioned that pin #2 of host’s port (in this case NS3’s port) should be connected to the ground otherwise it will not function.

I appreciate your help, thanks!

Nords are known for (unfortunately) not providing enough current to feed external boxes, so regardless of where pin 2 is connected to, there might not be enough juice left to power your device. Feeding external devices is not part of the MIDI standard either.

Which device exactly? I have tested a Yamaha MD-BT01 on my NS2 with no issues (works fine), not sure on NS3. Have you tested the same device also on a different MIDI keyboard?

PS: of course I assume you have checked that you are connecting it properly i.e. not swapping IN and OUT or connecting the IN only, since it is the MIDI OUT that powers the device.

Yamaha MD-BT01 works well with Stage 3 HA 88
Kind regards,

In a forum, I found that hint: If you don't have power supply via your instrument, set a MIDI-Patchbay or MIDI-Solutions Power-Adaptor in between...

Hi thanks everyone for the comment. Unfortunately I did not get the Yamaha one, not available in my area and finding it too pricey for small data sending device.I settled for similar 3rd party. (Avatar brand) because of high good reviews. Yes, I will test it on other MIDI device, I got a foot controller will try on that. For Yamaha user- do you see any LED light to confirm power is working? Thanks for sharing about patchbay- will try that one.

Hi all, so I tested my wireless midi and it worked on my foot controller (Rolls MP128). So for those planning to use wireless MIDI for Nord- so far Yamaha brand is the one that’s confirmed to work (based on comment above). Third party/ clones might not work example: Vanguard/ Avatar. Thanks!
