I bought the M-Audio Midisport Uno because I was looking to hook up a keyboard I had that had MIDI ins and outs. This allows you to send that MIDI signal to your computer via USB and control virtual instruments. This makes the the sounds you can play with a MIDI keyboard just about endless, providing you have the software. The only downfall of this is that it only has one MIDI input and output. It is basically a cable that has a MIDI converter in the MIDI and lights that show up when a signal is being either sent or received from the unit. I use this with a Yamaha Keyboard and a Mac Book Pro computer with a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM.


I use the Midisport Uno to control virtual instruments like Arturia Moog Modular and Native Instruments Elektrik Piano. It allows me to get a plethora of sounds with my keyboard that would not be possible without controlling it via MIDI. I can't think of a time that I really had a problem with this unit as it has always worked pretty well for me and has always run stable.


I've had the M-Audio Midisport Uno for about five years. It is nice to have around because I don't have a MIDI interface and I like to hook up my Yamaha keyboard that has MIDI jacks. I didn't want to spend too much on a MIDI interface becuase I'm not a huge MIDI guy and I don't use it all that often. This lets me use it when I need it without having to invest an expensive piece of gear. I would definitley recommend this to those who have a keyboard with MIDI jacks but don't have a way to hook it up to their computers.
