Perfect Solution

I use 2 keyboards [Kurzweil PC3x & Hammond XK-1c (gigs) or SK-1 (rehearsal)] and needed to control a vocal harmomizer (TC Helicon VoiceLive Touch.) Just connect both keyboards to the MIDI IN side and connect the MIDI OUT to the harmonizer. Voila - total control of harmonies (requires 3 cables total.) The unit I just received was slightly different than described. It is a newer, upgraded model which has TWO MIDI outputs, not one as advertised. This is my second MIDI Solutions Merger, and was labeled MIDI Solutions Merger 2 (not as shown in picture.) The first has only one output, but works the same way. Now I leave things set up for rehearsal and have another for gigs. I've used the first MIDI Solutions Merger every weekend plus rehearsals for over 3 years with absolutely no issues (still use it for rehearsal.) I'd say it's certainly road-worthy and has been very reliable. If combining two MIDI outputs into one (or two outputs) then this is what you need. Just buy it.

Works great!

Since I use two midi controllers for both recording and performance, I needed a device to combine the midi traffic between the two to send messages to multiple VST instruments hosted on my Macbook Pro. The Midi Solutions Merger does exactly what I needed it to do and without latency. The unit gets its power from one of the midi controllers so make sure whatever you are connecting to it supports this.

Works as advertised

I bought this so I could drive my VoiceLive from two keyboards. I set it up at home and worked great, but when I took it to a gig I experienced a small problem that I thought I'd relate in case it helps anyone. When I hooked it up, I initially got no MIDI into the VoiceLive. I made sure everything was connected properly and it seemed to be. Then I swapped the two cables coming from the synths and the indicator light (which I hadn't previously noticed was there) suddenly came on and I had MIDI happening. This was because the unit is powered off the MIDI connector, and to my surprise it turns out that not all instruments equipped with a MIDI OUT actually supply DC power. In my case it was a Hammond XK-1 that was incapable of powering the merger box. Fortunately, only the left input needs to supply the power (it's labeled "In 1 (Power)"). So if you hook this up and it doesn't work, look at the power indicator (under the "MIDI" label) and make sure your controller is supplying it with power.

A nice simple solution

My Roland FC-300 midi foot pedal sends sysex commands to my Yamaha S90XS keyboard and to my TC-Helicon Voiceworks vocal harmony box. There is one cable from midi-out of the pedal to the midi-in of the keyboard. The commands from the foot pedal then go out the midi-thru port of the keyboard. However I also need the midi notes from the keyboard midi-out port to reach the TC-Helicon which has just one midi-in port. See the problem? (two outs and one in) Thus the MIDI Solution Merger to the rescue. I hook my keyboard midi thru and out ports to the MIDI Solutions Merger ports and hook the out cable out to the midi-in port of the Voiceworks box.
