Presenting the newly updated Disaster Area Designs MIDI Box 4 control interface for pedals.
Updated and more powerful than ever, the MIDI Box 4 converts standard 5-pin (DIN) MIDI communications to a variety of 1/4″ formats.
Four independent control ports interface to your devices, and new user-accessible configuration switches make setup easier than ever.
Each control port may be set to one of four output modes, selectable using the DIP switches on the face of the MIDI Box 4.
Tip Active:. Suits Alexander, Meris, Empress, Bondi, and other devices using voltage mode on the jack tip
Ring Active: Suits Chase Bliss Audio and other devices using voltage mode on the jack ring
Tip and Ring Active: Provides separate outputs on tip and ring of the control port, enabling two MIDI outputs using our TRS Insert Cable
TRS MIDI: Sets the tip active and pulls the ring terminal high, for use with Boss, Jackson, Cooper, Swindler and other devices that conform to the MIDI TRS specification.
Chase Bliss Audio: All current pedals. Connect with TRS cable, set port to RING ACTIVE.

Please note that device support also requires a compatible MIDI controller. The MIDIBox is a data converter only, and won’t magically make your controller work with these devices. If you’re not sure about controller support, contact your controller manufacturer!
