Hi all
I have an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 soundcard but do not have the breakout cable that should come with it (I bought it on Ebay). I would like to connect my music keyboard to the card's DB9 connector via midi in/out. I have the DB9 male connector but to make the proper cable I need a pinout diagram of the female DB9 on the card. I have searched the net for many hours and it seems that M-Audio has done an excellent job of keeping their pinouts secret! Does anyone have any tips?
thanks in advance,

Audiophile 2496 breakout cable

Here are some photos of my own breakout cable that was supplied with a new Audiophile 2496 card

Perhaps you can figure out the connections you need from these
photos - (no guarantees)

This first photo shows the entire breakout cable - it has a MALE
9 pin connector that connects to the card

It has two female 5 pin din connectors and two rca type female
connectors

One of the 5 pin din connectors is labeled "out"
and the other 5 pin din connector is labeled "in"

One of the rca connectors is labeled "out"
and the other rca connector is labeled "in"

I will post other photos to show how the pins on the MALE 9 pin
connector relate to the female 5 pin din and the female rca
connectors

attached is a photo of the 9 pin connector on an M-audio 2496 card
with pin numbers added

pins 1,4,6 go to a female 5 pin din connector labeled midi out

pins 5,9 go to a female 5 pin din connector labeled midi in

pins 3,8 go to an rca female plug labeled S/PDIF out

pins 2,7 go to an rca female plug labeled S/PDIF in


Examples of 5 pin din connectors of this type can be seen at http://digikey.com/
