MIDI keyboard connection to 9 pin serial port

  Acacias 07:40 22 Jun 03

I have an adapter to connect my keyboard MIDI connections to my desktop 15 pin serial port.
I have just acquired a notebook which has a 9 pin serial port.
Does an adapter for MIDI keyboard to 9 pin exist?

Haven't been pin counting but the 15 pin connection sounds like the games controller which in my small world is not a serial port as such.
I suspect that you may not achieve ground-breaking success by this route.

Yes, Diemmess is correct - the 15pin port you were using was probably a Games Port - Serial ports are either 9pin or 25pin.

Many thanks to the "co-respondents" - My apologies for being an idiot !

Yes it was the game port (which my laptop doesn't have) and I have been steered towards a USB-MIDI device which will solve the problem.
