Extending MIDI to 500m

LNDR MIDI Line Driver extend MIDI


LNDR comes as a main and secondary pair that allows MIDI to be sent accurately in both directions at the same time, across distances of over 500 metres (1640 feet) using a standard CAT5e cables.

This is over 33 times the distance achievable using standard MIDI cables.

The LNDR MIDI Line Driver’s combination of balanced line drivers and twisted pair cable (CAT5e) gives a high degree of immunity to noise, which results in a very high degree of signal integrity – in plain language, a very reliable MIDI link over much greater distances than can be achieved with ordinary MIDI connections.

CAT5e cable is recommended: CAT5 cable will limit the transmission length to 100m.

CAT5 / CAT5e cable is not included (we don’t know what length you need!) Please see below for cables.

The CAT5 cable from an LNDR main unit should only be connected to an LNDR secondary unit, not to another main unit, and NEVER to any other device, even if it has a similar connector. (e.g. Ethernet).
