I did not realize that the MIDI input on the sound module was female and the socket on my device was female. This configuration required a regular cable, but I did not have one on hand. There was a 3.5mm phono socket on the sound module, and I had plenty of 3.5mm cords, so I decided to add one to this project.

Wiring up a headphone socket

A 3.5mm socket was part of the initial plan, but the inside of the box was ribbed, so it made it difficult to mount. Sadly, glue was used to attach the socket which was not my first choice. I wanted a chassis -mount socket, but it would not have fit.

After a quick trial and a couple of crossed wires, the inexpensive audio cable was transferring MIDI signal reliably, and the sound module acknowledged that it was receiving.
