Purchased to replace an EMU 2x2 Xmidi that "saturated" with my Yamaha P95. (MIDI events lost - missing notes / required to infinity)
I use a Yamaha P95 digital piano, a Roland V-Drums and keyboard EMU XBoard 49. The UM-3G is plugged into a laptop about 4 years old.
No problem with drivers (Vista 32).
The interface is not saturated, no loss of event.
I use it for a month and I have not encountered any problem with the apps I use regularly. (Mainly in Cubase VST and several standalone version)
I have an EMU Xmidi 2x2 ... I stowed in a closet with useless since the Yamaha P95!
At the functional level, nothing to say about the UM-3G. In addition, you can stack up to 3 UM-3G for 9 E / S.
Only quibble: the USB cable that connects the interface to PC / Mac is fixed and a little short.
Good value for money because it does exactly what I ask: treat MIDI events without missing one.
I do it again this election! and all owners of Yamaha P95 (or P85) should read this ...
MIDI Interface USB 3 Input - Output adjustable: you can plug in over two other slave-UM 3G and then put them in dun rack mounting option and it makes a great MIDI rack 9 inputs - outputs )))
FPT does not use technology (as is the case against his little sister Cakewalk UM-2G ^ ^). And can not operate with a generic MIDI driver, does not Linux.
I needed a little more input - output, so I turned to this model because the cheap. I now have 3 inputs - outputs again, making it five, having already Motu FastLane USB. And on this point, I am filled ^ ^ It's just a pity it does not work under Linux ... but ...
If I would do this purchase in case of need? Yes, certainly as it is possible to put 2 on it as a slave.
