i've just purchased (m-audio's audiophile 192 PCI card) for my new PC rig, and i found that the midi cables on the sound card are female connectors. Due to this i can now not connect the sound card to my midi keyboard, because my midi keyboard also has female connections.
I assumed that the sound card would come with male midi connections, also the length of the cables are only 8 inches long. As a result that only gives me 8 inches from my PC to my keyboard.
When i opened the box and saw the cables, i thought it was a joke. Before purchasing the sound card i tried everything to find out the dimensions of the cables but could'nt find them anywhere, so i assumed it would be a standard 1.5m lenght cable, I was wrong.
So i am now left with a sound card that i'm not sure is any good to me, due to the connection and the lenght of the cable.
If anybody out there is already using this product, could you comment on what the best thing for me would be to do ???
