Yeah, I’ve been meaning to get one of those too.

You’ll like the Pro VS- The vector side of out takes a bit to get your head around, but it makes for really great, organically evolving sounds.
Was looking at one of these: https://www.cme-pro.com/midi-thru5-wc-m ... -thru-box/ not midi powered which is a bit annoying but probably more likely to work with everything... they're $65 NZD on amazon, find another $15 worth of stuff thats eligible for free shipping and you can get both for about $100 landed :thumbup:
This is what I was looking at:
https://pushermanproductions.com/produc ... midi-thru/

Half my synths have MIDI on a mini jack and the other half are standard 5-pin, so I’ll be using adapters no matter what.
Interesting, the S-1 is 3.5mm but I ended up buying a Type A 3.5mm to 5 pin din cable for that, everything else I have so far is 5 pin din thankfully...

It wouldn't kill the manufacturers to just include a mini to 5 pin din adapter cable with their devices!!

Most do, but my custom cables are way tidier looking. Nobody wants extra bulges.
