MIDI data transfer

MIDI data transfer
More and more musicians make use of musical instruments that are controlled by a computer or keyboard via a MIDI cable. This article proposes to replace that cable by an optical-fibre type. That makes the system less vulnerable to noise signals and increases the top speed of the serial connection to about 60 kbit s^-1. The cable may also be used for transferring non-MIDI asynchronous serial data.
