Hosa MID-310BK MIDI Cable - 10'

10-foot 5-pin discrete MIDI cable compatible with all MIDI standards


Product Description

The Hosa MID-310BK MIDI Cable - 10' is a low-cost, high-quality MIDI cable 10-feet in length and designed to interconnect MIDI devices. Unlike other cables, the Hosa MIDI cable is wired 5-pin discrete and compatible with all MIDI standards, including SysEx. This durable MIDI cable is 10-feet in length.


MIDI, which stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, isn’t a sound or instrument, it carries digital instructions to recreate the music. For example, if a chord progression is laid down via MIDI, those same chords’ notes, velocity, vibrato, panning, tempo, and pitch can be transmitted to an instrument that has MIDI capabilities. Every time a musician plays a MIDI instrument, the performance is transmitted into MIDI data. That data can then be transferred to a computer and played the same exact way through another MIDI instrument.


MIDI is a universally used and recognized format, making the same MIDI cable functional for uses across all corners of musical equipment. Whether it’s from a guitar amplifier to a channel switcher, or an electric keyboard to an audio interface, the same cable serves both equally. MIDI simplifies commands and is an easy organizational tool for professionals of all types.


Standard MIDI cables are wired with pins 4 and 5 carrying the current, and pin 2 being used for the shielding to ground the cable. This means pins 1 and 3 aren’t needed and thus not wired. With a 5-pin discrete cable, all the pins are wired, allowing for any application that requires pins 1 and 3 to transmit something like power. Hosa MIDI cables are wired 5-pin discrete and can therefore be used for any standard MIDI cable function. Other MIDI cables without all pins wired could not perform the additional functions that require the connection of all five pins.


When you have multiple MIDI devices, it’s helpful to consider a MIDI interface, which will give you more MIDI ports and added flexibility. If you are looking to connect a single MIDI device to a desktop computer, a MIDI to USB interface, like the Hosa USM-422, is a simple and portable solution.


Since MIDI cables don’t transfer audio, more emphasis should be put on the build quality, reliability, warranty, and secure connection. Hosa MIDI cables are built to withstand the damages that come from being plugged and unplugged, tugged, crammed into gig bags and confined spaces, being stepped on, and all manner of occupational hazards. Each comes with a lifetime warranty for replacement should your abuses exceed anything reasonable.


MIDI In is for the device to receive MIDI data in order to make changes. MIDI Out is for the device to send changes to a receiver. MIDI Thru passes an exact copy of the MIDI information that was received by that device to another receiver. The reason for MIDI Thru is that MIDI Out will usually contain added information from that device. Should you want to send additional unaffected MIDI data to a different receiver, MIDI Thru allows you to simplify complex signal chains.


Since 1984, Hosa has been providing cables and accessories across the audio, music, and video industries. Over that time, Hosa has become a trusted name to consumers and professionals alike, with its dedication to quality, innovation, and unparalleled customer service. Hosa stands behind each cable with a lifetime warranty because these are the tools people rely on to keep their signals strong.


  • Nickel-plated plugs for rugged durability and efficient signal transfer
  • Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors for enhanced signal clarity
  • OFC spiral shield for effective EMI and RFI rejection and flexibility

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.

I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
