However, I don't doubt for one minute that the DIN plug will be conveniently forgotten, and possibly the connector of choice will be RG45, rather than USB
It is supposed to work like fax machine protocols, try a negotiation, and if it doesn't get a response work at the minimum state - which for MIDI would be MIDI 1
Typo Will? RJ 45? I like them! What would the bit rate be for MIDI 2? I mean, SPDIF works pretty well over RCA and XLR, cannot see DIN being any more lossy?
