Great Product, Poor Instructions

By Kevin

from Centerville, TN

I am kinda new at giving reviews so bear with me. I bought this item to run midi out from my Roland electronic drum kit. After many attempts, I could not get it to communicate with Abelton Live 8. I tried almost everything before I called customer service. They told me a Tech guy would call me in a couple of days to help, but never received a phone call. (Not E-Mu's fault) One last thing out of desperation worked!!! I had to plug the midi in to my midi out on my drum module and my midi out to my midi in. It's not what my Roland book says to do but nevertheless it worked. I don't know if the cables where mis-labeled or if I just got it all wrong. Other than that, it works great!!! It also has a driver you can download for Windows 7 64bit so don't be fooled by the pakage.

Works great

By Oz

from Calexico CA

I got this one to connect my Roland V-Drums TD-3 with into my computer running Windows 7 64x for triggering sounds from software Toontrack Superior Drummer V2.2 with Metal Foundry SDX through Reaper DAW. It works out of the box. First of all, Turn off the TD-3, now press and Hold Instrument while you turn it one (this will turn local control off, it is needed to only trigger the pads and not using the sounds from the module). Then, just connect the Midi In from the EMU (the one on Blue or Gray) to your TD-3 midi out, then connect the USB side to your computer, it will recognize the controller automatically. Then open your your DAW, Reaper in my case and go to Preferences and then go Midi Devices and Enable the EMU there. Now got insert a track, arm it and select the input for that track to MIDI Channel 10 which is the default on the TD-3 module, select the monitoring on, now insert the FX as VSTi or VST and choose Superior Drummer and you will be all setup to play the pads and hear the sounds from Superior Drummer. I will recommend also to use ASIO4All.

Not good for G Major 2

By Joe

from Akron, OH

I got this last week for updating firmware on my G Major 2 effects unit, and my FCB1010 midi controller. It works perfectly for transferring data to and from the FCB1010, but every time I try loading the firmware into the G Major 2 it fails. I went on the TC electronics forums, and they all reccommend a different interface. Just keep your reciept, it may not work with all your gear.

Great Product at a Great Value

By Daniel

from Marietta, GA

I've had this interface for a while now and have had absolutely no problems with it. I originally purchased a similar interface from M-Audio, but found that it was incompatible with my Yamaha P-150 keyboard. This cable works with it flawlessly. Also, some people report that you have to reverse the input and output cables, but this is simply a misunderstanding. The plug labeled "MIDI IN" has to be placed in the MIDI OUT port of your device because the MIDI data travels INTO the device. Other interfaces' plugs are often labeled "to MIDI IN", which is probably the root of the confusion.

Works with 64-bit OS!

By Harris

from Fort Lauderdale, FL

Great basic interface. Worked right away with both my computers, one uses Windows XP 64-bit, the other monster uses Server 2003 64-bit. No issues with Sonar 8 or Kontakt 4. You might need to reverse the inputs as others mentioned, but that is most likely they labeled them wrong. Great affordable product!!

Plug 'n' Play

By Robert J

from Brooklyn, NY

I bought this interface to connect my keyboard my Windows 7 computer. A CD with drivers is included, but it wasn't necessary. The interface has drivers stored in it, so it was Plug 'n' Play. No delay, and no complaints thus far.

By MidiMan

from Detroit, MI

Purchased cable to use Casio CDP100 88 key as a midi controller. Works perfect, no delay. Using with Ivory Keys, TruePianos and Fruity Loops software. Insanely beautiful sound out of a cheap Casio! Full 88 key polyphony with proper piano software. Must use ASIO4ALL drivers to remove delay. Don't let the audiophiles tell you there is something wrong with this cord, it's fine for us single device midi users. (Had to hook up backwards for some reason, like many others.)

My Review

By Chevy

from ATL

This cable plugged in, installed on my P4 dual core system no prob. Recognized, installed perfect. The light lights up as advertised when picking up signal. I'm not sure WHY the midi in/out has to be reversed, but its the only way it works for me, apparently for others as well. If you have latency issues in terms of key response being slightly delayed, its not the cables fault, rather your settings. Lower your buffer settings. All it took was a mere switch for me from my pro card(Delta 44) to the stock onboard sound and the problem was instantly solved. This is what you want if you're a home musician, def if you're a Fruity Loops beatmaker. The length of the cord is nice too, long, but not TOO long.
