Juno-66, nanoKontrol2, USB - DIN5 Midi

Post by inorx » Thu Dec 31, 2020 6:02 pm

Hi all

until now i have used a nanoKontrol2 via USB/PC to control the Juno-66. All good so far.

Now I'm looking for a smart way to directly connect the nanoKontrol2 to the Juno-66 Midi-in without the need for a PC. As far as i understand, some kind of a USB Host would be needed, offering USB und DIN5 Midi Interfaces. Potentially something like:
I would prefer a smaller and a less expensive box. I was thinking about building something based on an Arduino board or use something like this as a base: https://www.hobbytronics.co.uk/usb-host ... -board-v24

As I might not be the first one thinking about directly connecting a nanoKontrol2 to the Juno-66, I'd like to ask which solutions you came up with, which products/solutions you have made good experiences or bad experiences with? Any feedback, input, hint is very appreciated.

Thankt a lot and happy new year!

if you have a Eurorack case, we can only recommend our USB Bridge A for this:

With an inexpensive adapter cable from TRS midi to DIN midi, you can directly connect the Juno and the nanoKontrol

Don't have any experience with the other solutions though
