The T8 is MIDI-powered, and requires no batteries or power supply to operate with most products (see FAQs - Power for more information). A MIDI indicator LED lights up when the product is powered and flashes when MIDI data passes through it.
As MIDI devices are daisy-chained from one to another, MIDI signals gradually loose their integrity due to passage through optoisolaters at the devices' MIDI inputs. MIDI Solutions Thru boxes can be used to clean up the MIDI signal at any point in the chain where it is starting to become unrecognizable (actually all MIDI Solutions products clean up MIDI data in this way).
Be careful of other Thru boxes that amplify errors along with the signal MIDI Solutions Thru boxes actually read in the data and re-clock it out at the correct baud rate, eliminating any errors that have accumulated due to daisy-chaining or long cable runs. Because of this, MIDI Solutions Thru boxes can also be used to extend a MIDI connection further than the standard 50 feet. By connecting Thru boxes in series it is possible to extend the MIDI cable length by 50 ft. at a time (to send MIDI over even longer distances, see the Power Adapter).
