Roland MSQ-100 (1984) MIDI digital keyboard recorder

"The MSQ-100 has both MIDI and DIN, so these days it is mainly used as a MIDI to DIN converter. Having MIDI IN, OUT and THRU, as well as DIN Sync IN and OUT, it is very versatile for MIDI to DIN conversion. You can use it to sync DIN instruments like the TR-606, TR-808, and TB-303 to MIDI gear. The great thing about the MSQ-100 is that unlike other units with both MIDI and DIN (like the TR-707) it can be slaved to a MIDI device and then convert the MIDI signal to DIN, whereas other machines like the 707 must be the Master in order to sync MIDI to DIN: when the 707 is slaved to another device, it will not transmit a DIN signal. Therefore, the MSQ-100 is one of the only affordable devices that can be slaved AND transmit DIN at the same time. This comes in handy when you have MIDI device that can only act as a Master."
