This MIDI Merger / Splitter is the special 2 input 10 output thru box which I designed from scratch while not being happy with other options.
With ten MIDI output ports you set per port which input it comes from. It can go straight from input 1 or input 2 or it can go from merged 1+2. This ultimately allows zoning of MIDI ports and extremely flexible configurations and routing options. Such as you may have two independent MIDI thru boxes and MIDI Merger all on one board from two input ports. Watch a video for detailed explanation.
Microcontroller is responsible for merging capability and it's included with a PCB or Kit purchase.
There are two options for switches - micro slide type of the switch or a jumper. Jumpers are for more hardwired environment there you need the robust option that you can't move by a mistake. While slide switch option is for flexibility to choose MIDI input port. For more info refer to the picture.
It has optimized schematics for 5V and 3.3V MIDI sender devices, optimized circuitry for optocoupler to minimize false triggering and improve sensitivity. Finally it uses hex inverter with a Schmitt trigger for driving a stronger output signal. This makes it very reliable device.
There are two options for external power:
To be used with a standard wall adapter 6-12V and 5.5mm*2.1mm connector. In this case a Kit comes with corresponding socket and 7805 power regulator
To be powered from USB port. In this case a Kit includes USB->5.5mm*2.5mm cable, corresponding power socket (so you wont plug wall adapter) and doesn't include 7805. Instead of that you'll solder a jumper.
