#185975 - daisy-chain
Responding to: Chico Magalh„es's previous message
Chico Magalh„es said:
rs485 is easier to link...

I said:
Is it?

Chico Magalh„es said:
I think yes as I can conect devices in "daisy-chain", conecting each in the other one.

Daisy-chaining (via the 'Thru' port) is a fundamental part of MIDI!

Anyhow, as you're not actually interested in MIDI compatibility, you can do whatever you like - you only have to make it MIDI-compatible at the point where you need to connect to a real MIDI device.
You need to be sure that the end-to-end characteristics (particularly, delays) are OK...
