So I've never really used MIDI before, but since I got this new electronic drum set which has a MIDI output, I thought I would try plugging it directly into my soundcard's MIDI input to record directly to my pc. Well lo and behold... the fricken midi input (and output) on my soundcard is like a little baby MIDI input compared to the output jack on my drum set. It's too small. The cable is too big to fit into it. And it definitely is some sort of MIDI input as it's clearly labeled and does have 5 holes in it.

I've looked all over the internet and I can't find anything about there being two different types of MIDI inputs/outputs. So this is like my last resort because I have no idea what is going on. I thought all MIDI inputs/outputs were the same. What gives?

Oh, also, I have an Audigy 2 ZS Platinum soundcard.
