Id like to add that some manufacturers like 1010 have added a 3 pin Digital 
connection for midi, wich is super cool for things like polyphony and velocity. 
(Not so cool for slides and control voltages)

i must add for completion that you should also be prepared to accept +/- 12v on 
the *output*. (see for example here:

tl/dr: inputs on some module may be normalled to some rail without buffering. 
so the action of patching a TRS connector may momentarily short the output to a 
power rail. this can fry a GPIO.

its very much as steffan says - there are no actual standards and you must be 
prepared for any possible connection (including output -> output if truth be
