So far so good

By Jeff Christian

from Beaverton, OR

Had an M-Audio MIDIsport 2x2...whereas it always worked fine for keyboards, I found a mysterious problem generated with Roland V-Drums where ridiculous long latency problems would come and go. This unit not only gave me 3 more ports, but so far I have yet to experience any latency issues with the drums- bravo

No MIDI Channel Traffic Jam!

By The Rakemaker

from Music City, Missouri

So I bought two of these to pair up and yes, they come with the rack ears to do so. I logged into their site, downloaded the latest Windows 7 Driver, and Bang! They work like a dream! MIDI In or Out, they work without ANY channel problems. I'm using Ableton Live 8, FL Studio 9, and Reason 4. I'm also using a Casio CDP-100 for my MIDI Keyboard because I don't really need 500 buttons and the key action is real! I'm also driving various MIDI drum and sound modules on several channels at once. Great product MOTU!!! The Cakewalk Units aren't bad either, but no rack ears on their bigger rig. Stay clear of the M-Audio MIDIsport. The MOTU is the one to buy. MIDI on my friends!

The MOTU Micro UBS was good enough for me. I had some initial problems getting Vista to find the drivers. I had to open up the driver folder and opened the driver software as "adminstrator". The driver software began to run, and Vista intstalled the drivers. I have 4 midi sound modules and the Motu works just fine. No problems so far. Great midi interface for the price.
