This?

Will the 909 SYNC with midi? Its Rev. 1 with the jitter issue.

having trouble finding a male splitter!

Y Splitters available on Amazon too...just search MIDI Splitter. If you have a link to an example, its missing from your post.

I wondered if this might be an option for you too.

One DIN 'out' socket each for the 303 and 606 and one MIDI 'out' for the 909. I have Rev 4 so I cannot comment on any MIDI problems. I suppose if you get cables, you can give it a try...

You would need another pair of cables running from the splitter to the gear.

I keep hiring the sang that my 303/606 is DIN-5 Female and the cables are also DIN-5 Female. Do they require a gender changer?
I actually looked pretty most of half an hour I must be stoned still. abduction

Haha, yeah...you might be...

DIN MIDI cables will be male at both ends.

The 'out' sockets on the Y Splitter will be female so you will need to use another DIN MIDI cable running from each end of the splitter and to the 'in' of the 303/606.

So ill need some hardware sequencer also to control all this?

TB 303/606/909/juno 60/Korg Midi Synchronizer KMS30/Moog D with midi.
And just pulled the trigger on the MS-101 clone! :synth:

This will hope be my lets go to Berlin portable rig.

I am not aware of any jitter issues with v1. You may be thinking of the issue where the 909 doesn't start on always start on time with an external MIDI clock. I had this issue on a couple 909's and while Roland service notes state that it is rare, the two I had more often started out-of-sync than in-sync. The v4 ROM fixes this. I installed it on my current 909. If your 909 has this issue, you can just keep on hitting Stop/Start on the master sequencer until the 909 starts correctly. Other than that, you would have to upgrade the firmware.

Hah, remember you wouldnt be able to externally sequence the 303 or 606. Their onboard sequencers will only sync with your other gear through the KMS30 (great price btw) but programming the 303/606/909 with the onboard sequencer is pretty cool...

Thats some great gear too, have fun!

No - use the 909 as master clock to your korg, then drive the 606 and 303 from the din outputs

Trigger the Juno from either the 909 or the 606
