iConnect MIDI 4+

iConnect MIDi 4+The iConnectMIDI4+ is not only a 64 port MIDI interface for PC, MAC, and iOS. It also introduces four exciting new features to enable musicians to professionally integrate more than one computer or an iOS device into their music making environment.   

The iConnect MIDI 4+ allows for more than one computing device to access the same MIDI resources. This is useful in many ways such as, sending midi from a controller or synth to daw and an iOS device simultaneously, setting up redundancy in a live MIDI environment, sending MIDI from multiple computing devices to one another, and more.  

iConnectMIDI4+ also features Audio passThru. This patent pending technology is integral to using iOS, and multiple computing devices (PC, MAC, iOS) in a professional environment by enabling the devices to pass not only MIDI data but also audio data from device to device. There are many practical applications for this technology, for example now musicians can use a daw on their MAC or PC to control a virtual instrument or other music making program on their iOS or other computing device (PC, MAC, iOS) and send the MIDI data as well as audio data back to the DAW without extra cables, signal degradation or additional analog to digital conversion.  

Many MIDI devices include a USB port for input/output of both audio and MIDI. iConnectMIDI4+ accommodates for this by addition of a USB host port that allows musicians to integrate their USB MIDI devices seamlessly. iConnectMIDI4+’s MIDI host port supports up to 8 USB MIDI synths, controllers, etc. enabling all computing devices that are connected to iConnectMIDI4+ to send and receive MIDI and Audio from devices that are connected to its USB host port.  

iConnectMIDI4+ also has an ethernet port. Users can connect iConnectMIDI4+ to wireless router, ethernet hub/router, or any ethernet enabled device via its dedicated ethernet port and is network discoverable, allowing for musicians to control any of the devices connected to iConnectMIDI4+ via network connection, adding further control and connectivity options.  

With all of this connectivity comes possibility and nearly endless options. iConnectivity’s Port Manager software for iOS, MAC and PC allows the user complete control over 
iConnectMIDI4+’s I/O by providing direct control over how MIDI is routed and filtered to and from all devices connected to it.
