I paid $71 including tax at Guitar Center. I need midi inputs that were USB powered, because my sound card (Echo Mona) had no midi inputs.

The unit is very cool. It has a slow pulsing light to tell you that its configured for USB correctly. Then it has lights that flash to tell you that your transmitting midi information from your keyboard. It has a very robust, light lime green midi box which will look cool around anyone's computer. Also, the unit supports two midi in/outs and midi thru.

Installing the drivers under Windows XP was a very big pain. I finally downloaded the driver zip file from the Midiman site to a floppy, then read the installation instructions. It was all very bizarre and I was proud of myself, after 2 hours, that I got the installation correct.

The construction and quality is top notch. Look no farther for a USB midi unit.

The unit itself is great. The installation CD was of little or no help for Windows XP users, and the small manual that came with it didn't even refer to Windows XP. For some reason, Midiman products and Windows XP don't seem to agree. Usually the installation is an act of god if you can figure out how to get it installed.
