MIDI is fairly simple, but you can do amazing things with it. A MIDI interface allows you to connect to a computer and control digital musical equipment. Want to send a performance from your keyboard into software on your computer, or vice versa? A MIDI interface can help with that. Of course, MIDI interfaces can also be used in the same way with a variety of other musical equipment.
One of the things to think about when buying a MIDI interface is the number of ports you want. The most common number of ports in MIDI interfaces is 2 or 4. At Sweetwater, we carry port configurations from 1x1 all the way up to 8x8 ports. To determine which MIDI interface you should get, think about how many pieces of MIDI-compatible gear you have. If you own only one keyboard controller, a nice 1x1 MIDI interface will fit your needs perfectly. On the other hand, if you want to connect a range of devices, you'll need a correspondingly higher number of ports.
Our selection includes three main types of MIDI interfaces – portable, desktop, and rack. Each type has its pros and cons, so it’s really a matter of personal choice. Are you always on the road? Then a portable MIDI interface would be the best choice for you. Want something that's sturdy and functional? Rackmountable MIDI interfaces provide stability and a lot of creative freedom. And if you prefer to have everything laid out in front of you, a desktop MIDI interface is the way to go!
Of course, ports and types aren’t the only differentiating aspects of MIDI interfaces - many MIDI interfaces have additional features. If your plan is to work with video or digital multitrack recorders, check out one of our interfaces with sync options. Another convenient feature is USB compatibility. Having an interface that you can power with a USB port is amazing if you're on the road. This way you can avoid having to get an additional power cable, and enjoy the utmost in flexibility.
