Dunno. Here is the materials list for the project:
1 male (with pins) mini din-8 connector
1 female (no pins) db-9 or db-25 connector
a hood or casing for the connector
a length of 8-core shielded audio cable
a 2cm length of insulated wire
a soldering iron
And this is the URL that I found it from:

din-8 connector looked like first. If I needed one, where do I find

Careful. Is that just an 'ordinary' PC-Mac type serial cable? If you've
got an MP2K, you also need the infamous dongle. If you've found a site that

dongle plug on the other end, I'm sure MANY folks here would be interested.
