MOTU MIDI Express XT USB
by Allan Lerud from Valley City, ND USAThe MIDI Express XT USB was exactly what I needed. It functions exactly as the user's manual says. Very simple installation of the driver on the computer and then plug and play. I've had no problem... read more [+]s at all. This is a very well thought out and simple to run device. All my 8 MIDI devices now sit in order where they are supposed to be and run exactly how I program them to run. Keyboards talk to other keyboards (if you want them to) and every one of them talk to the computer. Perfect. I would have built one myself but I'm glad someone else had the same ideas about MIDI communication that I did. They did it right with the Clockworks software. Set it up, save it to a user preset and you are done. If you really need it to change something later, it's there for you on your computer. Really, a tremendously powerful device with very deep software. It's like before I didn't have one, the orchestra was unruly and unorganized. Now, the orchestra is truly mature and follow directions flawlessly. Yeah, a director's dream ! Thank you MOTU and Sweetwater for selling a great product. It's really amazing to shop somewhere for a musician's needs that are so detailed and technically advanced and find exactly what you want. close [-]

Way better than anticipated!
by Will Walker from Crewe, VAI purchased this item last week because I recently bought two more keyboards to go along with my Yamaha Motif ES, as well as two Emu synth rack modules. I didn't have the patience for daisy chaining, ... read more [+]and this seemed like the best deal. With the 8 ports, you have plenty of room for your gear. I simply ran my Motif's MIDI OUT to my audio interface's MIDI IN, and then the Motif's MIDI IN to the Motu's MIDI OUT port 1. The rest of the keyboards I did the same thing, running the MIDI IN's to their own port on the MOTU's MIDI OUT board. This gives me flawless syncing with my software sequencer, using the Yamaha Motif as my main MIDI controller. I was worried about latency issues being that it is USB and not Firewire, but everything syncs up seamlessly. It may be a bit on the expensive side, but I would recommend this interface to anyone who wants to have total control (without the drawn out thought process) over their keyboards and modules. close [-]
