The MIDISPORT can be purchased in the 2 in 2 out versions too. This is the 4 in 4 out version, it is small and compact. It can not be racked, but it will not take up much space on your desktop because it is not very good. It is also made well and won’t break easily, I have knocked mine off my desktop about 4 times, and my floor is made out of wood and it still didn’t break or crack. I take this MIDI device with me everywhere so I can also have all of my gear ready to go.


I mainly only used the MIDISPORT with my keyboards and a have a few rack modules that I use for sounds like the Motif XS rack and Fantom XR. I have them both going through this MIDISPORT and they work perfectly. It has only gave me some problems when I start switching out the MIDI chords to change out my gear or connections and then I will sometimes have to shut down my whole session and even computer sometimes to get the MIDISPORT to recognized the gear properly. I am not sure what causes this but my guess would be that you just can’t change stuff out on the fly like that. I have not received any driver updates, I am not sure if they have came out with any.


I am happy that I have purchased this MIDI device, I use to own the 2x2 version and needed an extra 2 ins and outs to I got this one. It will probably be the only one I will every need for home. But at the studio there are a bunch of devices like this one and they cost a lot more. I still think this one is just as good as any MIDI device that is out. No lag, no hassle; it just works. I recommend getting this if you have a few pieced of MIDI gear that you need to have synced.
