« Small device .. you will eventually outgrow it »Published on 09/15/12 at 20:06
I have never experienced a update for the drivers. The disk that comes with the UM-1X had the right driver to work with all programs and systems. I used it on my Intel Core i7 desktop computer and never experienced any issues with it. I still own it I just don’t use it much. If you want to switch the MIDI gear to a different piece of gear you may have to restart the UM-1X or close out of your session, I did experience some minor issues with changing the MIDI gear in the middle of a project.
It is a small affordable MIDI adapter that plugs into your computer via USB. If you are in need of a MIDI connection this one will serve its purpose for your small set up, but as your studio grow you will need to get a different MIDI interface with more ins and outs because 1 just wont be enough once you get more gear. I am happy with my choice to use the UM-1X while I had it, it has low latency and works great.
