Anodized or powder coated parts. PEM nuts for easy, fast assembly.

MIDI to Sequencer 
Interface Chip 

This is a neat little programmed PIC chip that reads MIDI Start, Stop, Continue and Clock pulses and outputs a Run signal (gate), a Start pulse (sequence reset) and clock pulses at the MIDI standard of 24 pulses per quarter note. All three signals are available normal or inverted from the ICs 6 outputs. 

Use it for DIN sync applications or to run analog sequencers. Only a few extra components are needed for the basic circuit. 

Plug this into a protoboard and have some interfacing fun! See the Data Sheet


PSCONN3 Power Distribution Board

18 position power distribution board. Use standard module power cable to connect to power supply such as PS505, PS800, etc. (Any connector position can be used; center preferred.)

Board is 1.2" x 10". Uses 4-40 hardware (included).


Super Power Supply Cable Kit
Useful for adding DIY or custom modules to the Blacet power system, the Super Power Supply Cable Kit  allows you to make up to 12 18" module power cables. Kit includes 4 pin female connectors,  pins, heatshrink and quad 20 GA cable.

Requires crimp tool (Mouser 538-11-01-0015 or equiv.) (Jameco 227491)

Super Cable Kit:  $26
Super Cable Kit with Crimp Tool:  $49

Power output orientation; same for all Blacet Supplies.
(MOTM compatible. Same pattern, different connector for Paia Power Wings.)

Need "cheap" power? While we highly advise you to use our PS505 or our new RAK-2 with power supply for safety, stability and convenience, some folks have asked for a kit to power 2 or three modules. If you are experienced with handling 120V safely then try PN 20626 from Jameco (.com).

Patch Cable Kit 1/8" (3.5mm) Builds 5 color coded cables. 

Make your own custom cables with our high quality kit! 

You get 10 metal 1/8" (3.5mm) connectors, 10' of extremely flexible, lightweight black coax and 5 different colors of heatshrink tubing. The coax is very easy to work with.
