I have some questions about midi cable for the Columbus.

In the owner's manual it states that a 7pin midi cable is needed, however only 4 pins are used? If so wouldn't a 5 pin cable be sufficient as well?
Does the 'footswitch' labeled xlr jack provide the exact same capabilities (including power) as the midi cable?

My 7 pin cable is falling apart and I can't find a replacement online anywhere...

3.3 MIDI Connections
3.3.1 MIDI In
Midi in receives “program change” orders from commonly available midi pedals and control
systems. The Herbert is able to supply phantom power to your midi pedal via a 7-prong DIN midi
cable. This can help unclutter your stage system and rids the artist of these pesky power supplies.
Pin 1 and 6 is ground (-) Pin 3 and 7 is hot (+)
The voltage is 9-12V AC or DC, which is acceptable for 98% of all midi pedals. Maximum power
usage of the pedal cannot exceed 800mA (0.8A) Please observe proper polarity to avoid damage to
the MIDI pedal.

Would this 7 to 5 pin cable work?
