Top 10 Reasons to Have iConnectMIDI™

  1. Plays Well With Others.
  2. Plug in USB-MIDI instruments, DIN MIDI instruments, iPad®, iPhone®, iPod®, Mac, or PC. All at the same time if you like.

    iConnectMIDI™ can handle all your MIDI gear, old and new.

  3. It’s Fast. Really Fast.
  4. We’re talking microseconds (That’s quick!), to process a MIDI message from input to output port. A powerful CPU and ultra fast, custom firmware makes this conceivable. You’ve heard it called ‘latency’ – the delay in hearing a sound after a key is pressed. The longer the delay, the less playable the instrument.

    iConnectMIDI™ can handle data a thousand times faster than humans can notice. It has no effective latency, and that makes it very musical.

  5. It’s a Translator.
  6. No more separate MIDI interfaces for your powerful new mobile device(s) and your computer(s). You’ll do it all with iConnectMIDI™. It allows mobile devices, computers and MIDI devices to talk to each other.

    After all, we did tell you that it plays well with others.

  7. Multiplatform Compatibility.
  8. Okay, we know; it sounds complicated, but it means something useful: iConnectMIDI’s™ ability to play well with others. That means no special drivers. We built it to follow the rules for all the various platforms, so you don’t have to.

    It’s USB compliant on Mac and PC. It’s also Core MIDI compliant on iOS. This means that several hundred software apps are already available and compatible for use with iConnectMIDI™. The list includes synthesizers, sequencers, samplers, editors, loop stations and even recording consoles.

    No longer is it a question of “what will work”, rather, “what can I make next”?

  9. One Tough Cookie.
  10. It’s all metal case makes it tough. We’ve been told from our customers that it’s their “most durable device”. iConnectMIDI™ was built for the road and able to handle as many miles as You’ll put on it.

    Now that’s peace of mind.

  11. It’s Wired.
  12. MIDI over a wireless network can be frustrating, unreliable and slow. That is definitely not? what you wish to have at the same time as you are on stage with all of those eyes and ears expecting a great performance. Lost notes, stuck notes, or a bad connection can make you look un-professional and tarnish your reputation.

    Wired is the way to go for reliability and speed.

  13. Computer is Optional.
  14. Not interested in looking like a tech geek on stage? No problem. Leave your computer behind and still have your synths and controllers talk to each other with iConnectMIDI™ running as a standalone MIDI interface. By the way, USB MIDI and DIN MIDI instruments will also directly talk to each other.

    You’re welcome.

  15. Lots of Ports (12 to be Exact).
  16. Yes, we counted correctly. Here’s a secret: the big USB-A port on the front of the device will let you connect to a powered hub, the kind you buy in a pc store. With that hub, plug in up to eight (8) USB MIDI controllers. That’s numerous keyboards, control surfaces, drum pads and other controllers for you to plug into. Including the two pairs of DIN MIDI (each pair is one port) on the back and two USB-B mini jacks for computing things on the front; that’s twelve ports.

    That’s a monstrous rig in the making!

  17. It’s a Traffic Cop.
  18. With all those ports, we wanted iConnectMIDI™ to know how and where to move all that MIDI data. So, we gave it the ability to route and filter MIDI data on the other hand you wish to have it done. Want your iPad to talk to just one keyboard or all connected instruments? No problem. Or filter out all pitch bend data going out of ports 3 and 7? Done. Have all data from three keyboard controllers go to one connected synthesizer? Easy.

    Go ahead and really get really creative with your rig.

  19. It’s Small.
  20. We get this always: People seem to imagine that iConnectMIDI™ would be bigger. Maybe it’s the close up product shots in our ads. Or maybe it’s because the feature list is so large that everyone expects it to be big.

    In fact, it’s quite small and unobtrusive. Polite, even. It’s small enough for bedroom studios and yet, powerful enough for pro studios. It definitely won’t tip the scales on your touring rig.

Future Proof

iConnectMIDI™ is fully user upgradable. Firmware updates are released through playable MIDI files, downloaded through the Internet. Be sure to register your product with us to get notifications of any updates.
