Product Description

Please Note: The MIDI Box is a MIDI signal converter only, you cannot use it to control MIDI functions.

Disaster Area's impressive MIDI Box has been updated to offer even more compatibility, introducing the MIDI Box 4! The MIDI Box 4 takes a 5-pin MIDI input and converts to 1/4-inch for up to four outputs. Disaster Area have improved the MIDI Box formula with external dip switches that allow you to configure each output for the pedal you're using.

With the MIDI Box 4 you can convert a 5-pin MIDI input into an appropriate 1/4" MIDI output for a variety of pedals from brands including Alexander Effects, Meris, Chase Bliss Audio, Boss, and more. Each output has a set of easily accessible dip switches assigned to it that alter the configuration to match how different pedals receive MIDI. The dip switch settings are as follows:

  • Tip Active: Suitable for Alexander Pedals, Meris, Empress Effects, and other devices using voltage mode on the jack tip
  • Ring Active:  Suitable for Chase Bliss Audio and other devices using voltage mode on the jack ring
  • Tip and Ring Active: Separate outputs on the top and ring of the jack which allows for two MIDI outputs using a TRS insert cable.  
  • TRS MIDI:  Active tip with the ring terminal pulled high, compatible with Boss and other pedals that use the MIDI TRS specification.


  • Power:  Requires 9-12v DC input, 50mA maximum.
  • Status LED: Lights blue when powered, red when receiving MIDI data
  • MIDI Thru
  • Dimensions: 112 mm x 60 mm x 27 mm (excluding jacks)
