2021-11-08 (M) EWC_Panel Power and MIDI port

I drilled a 7/32" (5.5mm) hole in the cover of my timer panel and installed a 1/8" (3.5mm) headphone socket which will be my MIDI port, and I spent way too much time figuring out how to wire it up. Then, I spent even more time second-guessing myself. I ordered a MIDI ↔ headphone adapter, but I didn't realize that some companies make theirs different than others, and mine wasn't compatible with my synthesizer. I almost ordered a new one for an exorbitant amount, but I remembered that I can always solder one together with existing wires.

I drilled a 5/32" (4mm) hole for power and installed a 2.5mm headphone socket next to the MIDI port. I bought USB cables with a corresponding end. I ran power, and a wire from the transmit pin, then wrapped the bundle in a white sheath. Confirming power was easy, but data will take longer.
