Hey guys can you explain this to me I know it is something with patches or something but I'm confused. Also can you name some Amps that have this feature. Thanks.

MIDI is simply a data protocol. The MIDI through jack is essentially a copy of what is going into MIDI In. It is there so you can daisy chain up several devices and have one source control them.

I recommend sitting down and having a read of this:

I use MIDI but I don't have a MIDI compatible amp. My effects are MIDI compatible but I simply use a relay out (basically a footswitch simulator) from one of the units to the footswitch inputs on the amp. That way when I select a patch the amp switches along with the effects units. You don't need an actual MIDI compatible amp to use MIDI.

K based on that then what is midi out if through is just a copy of in?
