Airl Tachyon-65's review"Cannot config without computer"

M-Audio Midisport 4x4
It should have been no big deal to manufacture this 100$ midi device with a couple of dip switches to hard configure the base settings, rather than forcing the user into endless searching for software to configure this device.

All I needed was just midi in to midi thru, that's very basic. Why the manufacturer did not include the appropriate softwwre to configure this device is a mystery, in any case a bummer.

As I do not use any computer / daw with my music instruments, this device is a big no. I just don't understand why the basic base config is not simply midi in to midi thru, just like all the cheaper similar products.

I returned this device to the shop for a full refund. On ebay I found a 20$ midi in to midi thru spiltter that works perfectly without any software.

I give one star for the functionality and an extra star for the build, total 2 stars.

The Montmirail Studio's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" One branch, it works"

M-Audio Midisport 4x4
No need to go over what has been said 100 times.

I use it on laptop, it feeds a whole bunch of stuff, among other interfaces Midi / CV for control of analog gear, a Motu 828 to drive another system, Novation, an analog midified.


Ultra stable. One branch, it works. Why is it not all the stuff like that?
Never update until now. Finally, as it turns, I did not ask.
Sysex going well. No drivers "DirectMusic" like other midiman, but it works well anyway.


I use it for the purchase https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif

I went through the same channel in one, sleeping since, especially in the stew prodipe

One detail, however, and it only affects my usage a bit chaotic. It is unfortunate to have led on one side and the other connectors. Nothing too serious right?

M-Audio Midisport 4x4
I would not enter into the description of the characteristics that are of a very known, and secondly, do not need to have taken a postgraduate course for understanding.

>>> For what purpose?
For which it is designed: Interfacing MIDI devices such as keyboards, expander, sampler, FX, drum machine, etc., with a computer so they can communicate via software whether it's a DAW ( Cubase or other) or publishing software dedicated to a particular machine.

What is your >>> config (Motherboard / CPU / RAM / Disk, ...)?
Since its acquisition, I changed at least 5 or 6 times to computer. So hard to say. However, it has always worked perfectly with each of them. An example of reliability!

>>> What instruments or systems you use it? ...
Almost all types from those mentioned just above. I MIDIfié guitarist (guitar synth) and so I had to tweak a lot routing software side. The 4x4 has always acted to perfection.
I only regret one thing, the fact that it can not run standalone (without computer) since it involves no possibility of internal routing. This is really a MIDI interface for computer hard-line. M ^ m long, with only 4 in / out, opportunities for internal routing would have quickly found its limits ... So ...


>>> The drivers are stable?
It is an understatement. Not experienced any crash in more than 10 years of use ...

Are they >>> often updated?
More for a while, but m ^ m long, is it useful?
I just hope M-Audio Midiman alias will survive the updates for future OS PCs, because the interface begins to age and I fear that one day she is no longer compatible with modern operating systems. It is feared, but for now, I think we still have a few good years of use ahead.

>>> What software do you use most often?
Mainly Cubase (VST from this interface), Ableton Live, Reason, and of course the graphics editing software of my machines. Oh, and of course the utilities current style Midi Yoke, etc. ...

>>> Do you ever happen to saturate the MIDI interface and if so, under what circumstances?
Projects sometimes despite never fully charged. COPY that I tell you!


>>> How long you use it?
As mentioned above, for over 10 years.

>>> What is special that you love the most, least?
The +:
-Stabilité/fiabilité Use copy
-Ease of use / implementation.
-Quality of construction
-The flashy look older versions like mine.

THE -:
-Uh ... Simplicity?
-The requirement to use a computer (we would have liked to use it as fill patch / standalone router)
-The look dull and not horny recent versions ... Well yes, you have to find something negative to say ...

Did you >>> tried many other models before buying it?
Yes, some of which models past or parallel-port ISA. It's time ...

How do you >>> the price / quality ratio?
Absolutely excellent view of the life of the product!

>>> With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Definitely yes for the intended use. I once regretted the limitation to 4 in / out to get me to buy the 8x8 version which I was disappointed. The 4x4 is always at his post and given its argus in secondhand, I doubt the resell one day ...

mejazzz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" capricious"

M-Audio Midisport 4x4
This article is limited as capricious, I have long used with four synths, one out of three times, the thing dconnectait or carrment to uninstall. I am not happy with trs such hardware is so much galre connect, organize, when four synths running on the recordings. In my case never this brand, I vaccine.


That's the bottom hurts, trs is unstable. A disaster for me and I'm not exactly a quiche computer. I may be saturated but is this a reason why the hardware is no longer recognized, or not working? This is not an excuse. I need reliable hardware. I shoot all year and do 2 to 3 gigs a month. Nervi is really not to have the hardware.


I deprecated the hardware for musicians who want to work srieusement, it is not reliable. Hack for Sunday morning, to go, but to work Manir intensive with lots of synths, friends go your way.

piergynt's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Stable - never had the problem"

M-Audio Midisport 4x4
I needed 2 MIDI input, the seller (Home Studio - Paris), no longer had the model I wanted, so they sold me 2 inputs 4 outputs, for the price a 2x2!
I even notice all of the same here, because I guess M-Audio uses the same components ... And I never had any worries dplorer stability of this unit.
I use only Mac with Digital Performer.


The stability is perfect at home.
I use only Mac with Digital Performer.
And 2 keyboards in between, which I use alternately ...


After 5 years of use, this interface is still the industry and continues its job. I never really compare to other products!

For the price and I had, it seems a good investment, what is more essential!

perlinf's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" great product a must"

M-Audio Midisport 4x4
USB port is convenient and sufficient for this type of product.

I use it with synthtiseurs branch on a mac.


none of the driver problem on mac. I use it with cubase, but also with the publishers of synth sounds.
I have not saturated this interface.


For several years I use it without any problem.
I also possde MOTU MIDI Time pice I find this suprieur MODEL, but this is not the same price.
therefore résumé: trs qualitprix good value. what is missing? ct as a standalone MIDI Time pice, but it is no longer in the same budget.

arturobing's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" OK but sometimes problem of stability"

M-Audio Midisport 4x4
4 inputs and 4 outputs = perfect for my use of the era.
I use it to connect all my synths / MIDI sound on my PC.


Many of stabilitdrivers same problem by changing the PC and using the latest drivers.
Finally I rsolu the problem by installing older drivers and using a USB cable shorter than the one provided.
Sometimes, no activity for more than an hour, the interface n'tait more visible in my DAW (Nuendo and Live).
Yet the power and sufficient PC (600W I think).
All my USB ports are utliss and the interface is connected to a USB HUB with power supply.


For several years I have.
When the interface is stable, there is no problem of latency, or buffer overflow.
It has a trs good value quality price.
If there were 8 IN / 8 OUT MAUDIO home, I will replace it (my synths Park continues to grow ...). I think I achter second one in a while.
