Ground control pro midi out pinout

Post by pedro#9 » Sun Jul 07, 2019 5:22 am

Hello all,
Can someone share the EXACT pinout of the output of the midi connector of the ground control pro ? I m looking at powering the gcp from my own power supply and would like to have only one cable to carry power and midi messages.
If someone is interested I might share my Pcb in order to “inject” power in the midi cable of the gcp.

Hi Pierre,

Pins 1 and 3 are for power, all the rest straight through.
GCPro, GCX, Pedal Power 2+, Pedal Power AC.
And some other stuff.

This is the Ground Control Pro MIDI Out jack...

As mentioned above, its a standard MIDI Out with the addition that Pins 1 & 3 OR Pins 6 & 7 accept Phantom Power. The Ground Control Pro will accept 9V AC or DC and should get at least 400mA.

Good Luck!
