elta music pm-02 exploration


impurfekt

"the elta music pm-02 is a eurorack version of the recent polyvox-m desktop unit. it is a simplified version of the original polyvoks synthesizer; possessing similar oscillator and filter circuitry.

this synth is my first in-person exposure to the polyvoks family. it certainly lives up to its reputation. the oscillators are raw and dirty (though cleaner when patched out to other modules). the filter is dirty and has the most violent resonance i've ever heard. the envelope is nice and snappy. the unit is gorgeous and built like a tank. it has enough jacks to easily incorporate other modules.

while i enjoyed using the pm-02 i found the filter lacking in musicality. it's generally rough and dirty (not a bad thing); and adding resonance just makes it louder and dirtier. i was pleased by the saw and square oscillators. the square can sound nice and woody. to me the triangle oscillator sounds more like a muted saw than a triangle. i struggled to create bell-like tones for example.

due to the general character of the filter i've decided to look at other options; but if you like the tone of this synth it's an excellent choice. it's well built and excels at hard, sharp, dirty, nasty sounds.

filter sweeps (low pass) at 0:15
filter sweeps (band pass) at 5:26
saw arp at 8:48
bass line at 12:02
triangle arp at 16:11
band pass lead at 21:08

"We connected an accelerometer to the pitch CV input on the new GS Apollo synthesizer and this is what we got.
The accelerometer module was slightly modified. Some filters were added in order to achieve a better response.
No modulation wheel or aftertouch was used."

Quilter Labs PANOPTIGON CHORD CONTROLLER Unboxing & Demo

00:00 - Unboxing
01:16 - Optigan Mode Demo (Cha Cha Cha)
03:51 - Orchestron Mode Demo (Bass Clarinet)
05:03 - Chirp (Bossa Nova Style)

"Here's a quick unboxing & demo of Quilter Labs' new Panoptigon Chord Controller, available for purchase here

This is a small MIDI controller that replicates the functionality of the Optigan chord button panel. You can use it in conjunction with a standard MIDI keyboard to control Panoptigon. You can also use it with iOptigan (requires an additional 3rd party MIDI to Lightning interface) or any other MIDI sound module.

In "Optigan" mode, the PCC controls a standard Optigan format disc. In "Orchestron" mode, the chord buttons send chord MIDI data to play simple sustained chords to either an Orchestron disc or any MIDI sound module. In "iOptigan" mode, the PCC is mapped to control the iOptigan app (https://optigan.com/ioptigan/). All three modes can be set to either "Normal" for momentary operation or "Radio" for latched operation.

In this video I demonstrate the "Optigan" and "Orchestron" modes. A full demo of the 'iOptigan' mode will be coming soon.

At the end, there's a nod to all the Minecraft / Little Big Planet fans- a quick improv on 'Chirp.' :)"

Open Amiga Sampler - NEW Amiga hardware announcement!


Echolevel

"Introducing the Open Amiga Sampler - an affordable, open-source, 8-bit/mono, parallel port sampler for the Commodore Amiga featuring stereo mixdown and an input preamp with physical gain control.

Schematics, documentation, parts list and custom PCB files are available at: http://github.com/echolevel/open-amig...

"What are Amiga samplers?

Over the course of the Commodore Amiga's active lifespan, a great many samplers (also known variously as sampler carts/cartridges, sound cards, audio digitisers, audio interfaces, etc) were manufactured to exploit audio capabilities that were unmatched by any other home computer of its time. In 1989 an Amiga 500 with a cheap 8bit parallel-port sampler gave you the means to produce professional sounding music in your bedroom for a few hundred pounds - about the same as it cost to hire a recording studio for a few days. Acid house and techno were exploding; hardcore, jungle and drum'n'bass were just around the corner. Even if your sample-based Amiga music wasn't quite professional sounding by the standards of audiophiles and hi-fi enthusiasts and the old-fashioned music industry, it was probably good enough for underground clubs and illegal raves! Countless dance, bass and electronic music superstars got their start with an Amiga and a cheap sampler.

Some samplers back then cost a lot of money and offered advanced features or higher quality than the rest, although there was (and still is) a fundamental limit to the sound quality it's possible to squeeze out of an Amiga. This project is a clone of the typical low-budget sampler design that flooded the market in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They're often referred to as 'carts', but they're actually not cartridges: they're usually small 25-pin parallel port dongles whose circuit boards and connectors are housed in the type of plastic shell that systems like the C64 and the VIC-20 used as cartridge housings. But some manufacturers called them cartridges, and we've been calling them carts for decades, so we'll stick with that. Some live in separate boxes attached by a parallel extension cable to the Amiga's printer port, and some connect to both parallel and serial ports, or even to a joystick port, as a hacky but clever way of getting up to 16bit resolution. Interesting stuff, but out of this project's scope for now!

The common features of these cheap sampler carts were:

8bit sample resolution
Stereo or mono
Typical maximum sampling rate of ~55Khz in mono (~37Khz for stereo)
Usually claimed to feature impressive SNR, anti-aliasing filters, and special ~90Khz frequency modes (sometimes these claims were even true!)
The feature set of the Open Amiga Sampler is:

8bit sample resolution
Mono
Typical maximum sampling rate of ~52Khz
Input amplifier with variable gain"

Send Me An Angel by Real Life COVER performed on an Oberheim OB-8 and Sequential Pro 3 with vocals


Sean Christopher Evoking Emotion with Synthesizers

"Oh how I loved this song and album (Real Life's Heartland) back in the 80's as a teenager, and Send Me An Angel has to be in my top ten pop songs of that entire decade. In fact, I recommend that you buy Heartland if you love this song. Needless to say, I've always wanted to cover this piece and finally got around to it. For synth bass duties I used my Sequential Pro 3 and for everything else synth I used my beloved Oberheim OB-8 which did a fantastic job recreating those 80's synth patches. For drums and guitars I used NI's Kontakt and Battery.

A big thank you to Tim Murphy for providing the lead vocals. Until this cover, Tim has not sang for over 20 years, but with a little coaching from my wife gave us a great performance IMO. Also thank you to my wife, Ann Marie, for providing the "Angel" vocals. I provided additional bass vocals underneath the chorus and 2nd verse.....which luckily for you the listeners isn't too loud. LOL"

Quick Jam: IO Instruments Eurorack Modules


Perfect Circuit

"IO Instruments has some interesting eurorack modules out and some more on the way. We put together this small system with a few of their modules including the Himalia which is a sound source with 5 generators including filtered analog noise, digital noise, a square wave oscillator, sampler with lots of built in drum sounds and a chord generator. IO also has basic modules like the Themisto VCO, Euporie VCF, Pashiphae ring mod, Sinope VCA and Sponde mixer that add clever and useful extra features. All of the IO modules also have colorful knobs and a halftone paint job that makes them look great together.

We added in a Noise Engineering BIA for the kick, Intellijel Quadrax for envelopes and a Malekko Quad VCA for mixing and extra VCAs. Everything is sequenced with the Arturia Keystep Pro.

And the press release:

"Price/Availability:​ MSRP: US$345, In stock, shipping August 7, 2020

Los Angeles, California: Noise Engineering​ announces the release of Desmodus Versio,​ a 10hp stereo in/stereo out synthetic-tail generator reverb with a generous helping of attitude. Seven CV-controlled parameters and three reverb modes make creating wild reverberant spaces a joy. Pre-orders open July 31. ​Desmodus Versio​ ships August 7, 2020.

Desmodus Versio​ is Noise Engineering’s take on reverb. It features true stereo in and out, seven CV-controlled parameters, and three reverb modes. The parameters are designed with performance and immediacy in mind. Morph between almost infinite reverby sounds with the twist of a few knobs; three reverb modes offer more texture and space options with clean, distorted, and pitch-shifting shimmer settings. ​Desmodus Versio​’s feedback control creates regenerations that never die. Turn up the control and the reverb ducks when it receives signals at its input, useful for creating sidechain ducking and atmospheres for percussion. Hit the FSU button to “freeze stuff” up. No input? No problem. Hit FSU to inject a tiny bit of noise to stimulate the tank and engage the reverb. Whether you make hard-hitting techno, ambient, industrial, sound design, or something else completely, ​Desmodus Versio​ has a place in your rack.

Desmodus Versio​ isn’t just a reverb, though: it’s a DSP platform. Its firmware can be changed via USB, so it can be transformed into a completely different effect with new firmwares coming late 2020. Are you programming savvy? Open-source support will be released later this year.

And what’s better than buying a new module? Supporting a great cause at the same time! A portion of proceeds from every ​Desmodus Versio​ sold goes to Bat Conservation International. Find out why bats are not only cool but also an important part of our ecosystem at Bat Conservation International’s website, ​batcon.org​."

North Coast Synthesis - MSK 009 / 011 / 012


SchneidersLaden

"Behind North Coast Synthesis Ltd. is Matthew Skala, who got into hobby electronics as early as the 1980s. Later he studied later computer science and spent about 15 years in academic research and teaching at universities. In 2017, Matthew abandoned academia and established North Coast Synthesis in Toronto. So, you can expect some thoughtful and creative designs, like the Leap Frog VCF, which provides the steepest filter slope possible: 61 dB/octave – and for quite some time it was the only module North Coast Synthesis offered. Now there are three more modules available, the MSK 009/011/012. While the MSK 009 is another filter, the other two are an ADSR and mixer.

The MSK 009 multi-mode filter and rectifier packs an entire nest of sound-shaping features into compact filter module. It's a two-pole state-variable filter based on a unique integrator design which stores energy in both inductors and capacitors depending on the frequency range. It offers warm sounds with a wide foundation and ever-shifting timbres. This is a somewhat unpredictable filter, it's a lot of bite for the buck, and for the rack space.

The MSK 011 is a nice utility mixer with versatile sound possibilities and a minimalist design featuring just six transistors. The module is suitable for both audio and control voltages, with bonus features like positive and negative offset; simultaneous DC- and AC-coupled outputs; maximum gain a little over unity that extra push. It can also function as a transistor distortion effect, by offsetting the signal until it clips – this also allows for creating some interesting waveforms by mixing and offsetting different input signals – as seen in the video.

The MSK 012 is a traditional ADSR envelope generator module that also covers percussion notes like an AR envelope, organ notes like an ASR -always musical, with lots of.
The video covers only a part of the sonic possibilities but should give a good impression of what you can expet from all three new North Coast Synthesis modules."

E-mu Proteus | The Module EVERYONE wanted!


Espen Kraft

"The E-mu Proteus was the most hyped and eagerly awaited hi-tech music product. of 1989
This is my review of this sound module EVERYONE wanted at the end of the 80s.
High quality&24 Hours Build Time: https://www.pcbway.com/

Support this channel on Patreon:
https://www.patreon.com/espenkraft

The hype surrounding this module was surreal, and it didn't feil to deliver. To get 4 Mb of the best Emulator 3 sounds in a multi timbral box, for about $900 in 1989 was simply a bomb going off. Everyone wanted one and they sold massive.

32 voice polyphony, editable sounds, 192 presets and with an ever expanding line of revisions and enhanced version of the Proteus was hard to resist.

Some of the sounds does seem outdated today and the "original" sounds in the Emulators and Emaxes has the edge, but many of the sounds in the Proteus is highly usable if you use them with other sounds. Some of them still excel in my opinion."

NEEMFest 2020 Cancelled



via https://neemfest.com

"Hello Friends,

Unfortunately, we must postpone NEEMFest 2020 indefinitely. It was a difficult decision to make (and is even more difficult to communicate) because there was no single overwhelming reason for it. Rather I -- and the rest of the group that you’ve entrusted with planning and arranging it -- felt that there are numerous obstacles standing in the way of a successful and satisfying experience for the community, enough of them to make postponement the wisest plan. A complete list would take a while, but there are three I’ll mention here.

First, a virtual conference requires a huge effort from presenters and performers, and because much of that involves learning and experimentation, it must be done well in advance. Many of us, through no fault of our own, are not very far down that road. Even though we were ready to assist everyone with both documentation and in-person support, we did not feel that NEEMFest would be able to maintain its inclusiveness, the one thing that all of us value the most.

Second, those of us who had done streaming events realized that audience attention is far harder to capture and maintain with a multi-day virtual event. That, and the need to provide technical support, had already led to a decision to reduce the number of performance slots from our normal 40+ to around 16. At that point, we had entered a world where it was not at all clear that the rewards for the performers (or for the technical volunteers) would justify the effort.

The third reason is the most difficult to describe and at the same time the most compelling. The entire community is stressed and distracted now. There is a pandemic raging in the United States and it is going to get worse, even as the rest of the developed world is slowly returning to normal. Some of us face financial insecurity. Those who have children in school, or who work in schools and colleges, are experiencing worrisome risk and real uncertainty about what will happen in just a few weeks (my own city of 30,000 is about to face an influx of tens of thousands of college students who will, of course, maintain social distancing and other safe practices at all times). NEEMFest was scheduled for the week after the public schools reopen -- a peak time for either anxiety or relief, and either way a time when people will be most focused on family and friends. It seemed that our chances of capturing the attention of performers and audience at that point in the calendar were, if anything, substantially worse than they would be at other times.

We concluded that we should, as one of us put it, “do NEEM when we can really do NEEM”. In the meantime, we can all raise our game, and continue working on virtual events in a paced, deliberate way. We’re making all of the technical-support materials we prepared available on the NEEM website (at https://neemfest.com/?post_type=encyclopedia&p=7771&preview=true ]). All of us are available to help people who want to get going. There are any number of good ideas for Zoom presentations and online tours floating around; over the coming weeks, we’ll be putting those forward here in the hope that some educational events and virtual tours might spring up. There is a lot for all of us to work on, and I hope that as many of you as possible will join us.

Speaking now only for myself (and maybe for some of my bandmates), virtual collaboration and performance have been a real godsend for me over the last few months. This is a resilient and adventurous community, and I’m confident that NEEM will come back in the form of a hundred micro-NEEMs before we are all able to meet together in person again -- and that there will be some new things, uniquely possible in cyberspace, that will astonish and delight all of us.

A final, personal word: I am immensely grateful to the volunteer crew of organizers: Rebekkah, Mike, Steve, Ken, Rob S., Jim, and Chris. This has been a rocky road, and I have pitched a few of the rocks. All of us are even more grateful to those of you who have made financial contributions to support NEEM. Fortunately, we have spent very little if any money so far, and your contributions remain to be used exactly as you intended -- to make the next NEEM the most inclusive, fee-free event it can possibly be. All of us are in your debt.

We close with a musical selection: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdZXQHa9rv0"

"Get the samples here: https://gumroad.com/products/LOYBo/

The Vermona DRM-1 is a wonderful, all-analogue, 8 voice drum synth with a wonderfully unashamed raw, electronic tone and a startling versatility. In this sample pack I have captured 113 samples, and processed them 4 different ways: raw; a punchy in-the-box plugin chain; processed through a gritty characterful germanium pre-amp on low and then high gain.

The samples cover the standard kick, snare, clap, cymbals and "other" drum sounds, but also takes advantage of the fantastic "multi" voice on the Vermona for metallic plinks, zaps and techno chord stabs. Additionally, as many of the voices allow you to remove the "drummy-ness" from the sounds, there are a range of "tone" samples which showcase the raw synth sounds and are great for melodic and harmonic parts."

Evolution One virtual analog synth in Audio Evolution Mobile 5 for Android


Audio Evolution Mobile

Spotted this one on discchord. That's actually Tim Webb of discchord in the video.

"Audio Evolution Mobile Studio features a virtual analog synthesizer 'Evolution One' based on the very popular Synth One from AudioKit! Featuring morphing oscillators, FM, Sub Osc, Noise, Portamento, 2 LFO's that can be routed to 12 targets, Moog type filtering, effects, ARP, sequencer and more.

Presets are compatible with Synth One and it comes with licensed presets from Electronisounds and Red Sky Lullaby, giving a large number of presets to play with. Because Synth One is very CPU hungry, a lot of optimisations were performed to have it run decently on Android in a DAW environment, but a fast/recent Android device is still recommended. There is also an option to play in a lower quality mode, but when freezing a track or performing mix-down, the high quality setting is always used."

MAM RS3 Resonator stereo filter module (Korg PS series)


via this auction

"The MAM RS3 Resonator is clone of the resonator filter of the vintage seventies Korg PS 3100 and PS 3300 synthesizers. A threefold resonant filter section that can be set up in stereo, with radical and inspiring swooshy results. A simple keyboard becomes a cool fullblown pad machine (Jean Michel Jarre!). Sometimes resembing a very sophisticated phaser but different still. Supposedly Vactrol based. 100% analoog so no midi, USB or anything fancy as that... Just mono in and stereo out.

There is a modulation bus (jack in) at the back that I have never used - no reason why it shouldn't work"

YAMAHA VL 1 | VIRTUAL ACOUSTIC SYNTHESIZER 1993 | FACTORY DEMO SONGS


AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2020 by AnalogAudio1

The internal factory demo songs (1993) of the Yamaha VL1 "Virtual Acoustic Synthesizer".

The Yamaha VL1 was a groundbreaking, pioneering synthesizer with its "virtual acoustic" synthesis in 1993. But it was not a big success, so Yamaha went on with sampling technology for the most part. But still, the Yamaha VL1 and VP1 have their place in history.

Recorded directly from the Yamaha VL1's outputs without any additional effects or eq treatment. Enjoy! Music by YAMAHA Corporation.

Few years ago I demoed the Yamaha VL1, see: [here]

Alpha Base Noisy Techno


NoizeHack

"I tried out a Jomox Alpha Base. It sounds great, of course the Jomox kick is amazing, it has the weird and interesting mBrane which i ran through the DBA Ghost Delay. It has an FM synth with a 4x4 matrix for dialing in modulation, but I wish it had more envelope control over modulation amount. The rest of the sounds are samples going through analog filters, you can pitch them a ton, its pretty fun to pitch tiny rides down into deep gongs and short snappy claps into giant noise bursts.

I used Patterning 2 to sequence the Alpha Base and all the sounds are going out on separate channels and mixed in the BX-8 with the preamps overdriven."

via this auction

" This rare keyboard is in AMAZING clean condition inside and out. My tech of 34 years was shocked to see how well the synth looked inside as well as the cosmetic condition as we have together seen a LOT in the past 3 1/2 decades.
After sitting in storage for the past 10 years we went thru the entire unit top to bottom cleaning everything and solving the following problems:

He replaced several shorted power supply bypass capacitors, a couple of resistors in the power supply that were damaged as a result, and he replaced a comparator IC in the analog to digital (A/D) converter circuit and cleaned all of the controls as well. He then programmed in a few simple example patches and checked all the functions. Low serial# so we think from 1979.
The result is a fine vintage keyboard with
a VERY clean bill of health. Sounds and works FANTASTIC!

BONUS!!!! Now pictured is 2 Volume & Control pedals which will be included in this listing!! Comes also with a new power cord."

Mutable Instruments Ambika


via this auction

"The ambika has a specific character not found in other synths, very futuristic and unique when modulated, feels clear and forward. Plays very well with reverbs like OTO Bam or Quadraverb. This one in particular has SMR-4 filterboards installed in all six slots. These filters are based on the Roland Juno architecture, though unique to Ambika, they can be overdriven using the 'fuzz' parameter to warm the voices up and add a nice, sublte distortion. Can be played as a six-voice poly, a multitimbral monosynth of six parts, or any combo in between using a main out or six individual outs. Comes with the latest YAM OS and power supply."

Sequential Adds User Wavetable Import for the Pro 3 Multi-Filter Mono/Paraphonic Synth



via Sequential

Sequential Adds User Wavetable Import to Pro 3 Multi-filter Mono Synth

San Francisco, CA—July 29, 2020—Sequential today announced a significant enhancement to their acclaimed
Pro 3 multi-filter mono synth — support for user-created wavetables. A hybrid instrument, the Pro 3 features two VCOs plus a third, digital oscillator with 32 permanent factory wavetables.

Sequential’s web-based utility Wavetable Generator allows users to convert up to 16 single-cycle waves into a Pro 3 compatible wavetable and load it into to any of the 32 user wavetable slots on the synth. This significantly expands the sound palette of the instrument. Custom wavetables are generated as SysEx files that can be archived and shared with other Pro 3 owners. To use the feature, users will need to upgrade to version 1.1 of the Pro 3 operating system, available on the Support page of Sequential’s website. Both the Wavetable Generator utility and OS upgrade are provided free of charge to Pro 3 owners.

“How do you make an awesome-sounding hybrid synth even better? By letting users import their own wavetables,” said Sequential founder Dave Smith: “It opens up a lot of new sonic territory for the Pro 3. We hope users get crazy with it.” Sequential chose to provide the utility as a web app for easy access and broad support. Added Smith: “We wanted to make getting custom waves into the Pro 3 as simple as possible. Ease of use is always a big priority on our synths.”

A hybrid instrument, the Pro 3 features three classic analog filters (Prophet-6, OB-6, and ladder) and three oscillators (two VCOs and one wavetable oscillator) along with a powerful new 16-track sequencer, and the ability to connect with modular synths through its four control voltage ins/outs. The feature set is rounded out with a multimode arpeggiator, three LFOs, four loopable ADSR+delay envelopes, dual digital effects (delays, reverbs, and various time-based effects), tuned feedback, analog distortion, and extensive modulation possibilities. The synth is also capable of 3-voice paraphonic operation.

The full-featured sequencer provides 16-track sequences of up to 64 steps, with ratcheting, variable gate and sequence lengths, multiple playback modes, and paraphonic operation. It also syncs to MIDI clock and external audio input, and inputs/outputs control voltages. In addition to notes, sequence tracks can control any parameter in the 32-slot, 171-destination modulation matrix.

Sequential is offering two versions of the Pro 3, the standard edition, and the Pro 3 SE, a special edition that puts the same synthesis power into a collector-worthy design with a tilt-up control panel and premium-grade walnut trim.

The Pro 3 standard edition has a US MAP of $1,599.

The Pro 3 SE has a US MAP of $2,099.

Inputs and Multiple Outputs - Summit Series // Novation

NovationTV

"-CALC- looks at how you can use the multiple outputs on our flagship polysynth, Summit, to manage sounds and your sound design. The video also takes a good look at how you can use the audio inputs to feed any external audio signals through Summit's synth engine and onto the FX.

With its multitimbral architecture and 16 voices of polyphony, Summit is like two Peaks in one instrument, enabling two completely independent patches to be split or layered across the keyboard, or switched between on the fly. And, that’s not the end of it: the addition of dual filters, greatly extended front panel controls, audio input and the same premium-quality five-octave keyboard introduced with our SL MkIII MIDI controller, put Summit in a creative league of its own.

Polyend Tracker Sessions #2: "MLT - Cantaloupe" (feat. Medusa and Virus TI Snow)


Miltos Schimatariotis

Here is my next little song made for my Polyend Tracker series. This time, except for the constant presence of the Medusa, the Tracker is also accompanied by the Virus TI and some live keyboard playing with a sound from the Atom library by Audio Modern. In this track, I had a good chance to test the Tracker as a MIDI sequencer too, including both notes and CC messages, and the whole process is pretty straight forward. I have also upgraded the Trackers firmware to 1.1 which now features a reverb along with the delay. So there are more possibilities now for atmospheric tracks and better production overall.
After a few more Tracker Sessions I 'll probably start to also upload some walkthroughs (or tips&tricks etc). Let me know if you would be interested in something like that or if you have any other ideas. The Medusa sound design series will continue too but the song videos help me in that department because they give me ideas for new, "real world" patches.

It took a while to upload a new video but I recently did a small upgrade in video gear too. I 've got a very nice Olympus Em-10 MK3 and some lights, so I made sure to take a lot of shots in this video to get the hang of them 😄. Hopefully, there will be a noticeable upgrade in picture quality in my next videos too, so stay tuned!

Thanks for watching and feel free to leave your comments or questions!

iConnectivity Introduces mioXC - Worlds First USB C MIDI Interface


via iConnectivity

"We're proud to bring you our latest MIDI interface, the mioXC. mioXC is the world's first USB Type-C MIDI interface.

We designed mioXC around the latest connectivity standards demanded by modern musicians; all in a pocket-sized, super affordable package.

A Pocket Powerhouse
Tiny in size and price, yet big on connectivity, mioXC is a pocket-sized powerhouse!

mioXC is a fuss-free and simple 1 in 1 out, 16 channel USB-MIDI interface you can use to connect your MIDI compatible gear.

Whether you have a controller keyboard, synthesizer, drum machine or whatever; mioXC lets you connect them to your Mac, PC, iOS, or Android computing device.

What Makes mioXC Unique?

Even the most basic tasks need to be done right; it’s surprising how many of our competitors interfaces get it wrong. We engineered mioXC, from the ground up to, to be the interface we’d want to use ourselves.

Modern USB Connectivity - Equipped with both USB Type-C and USB Type-A connectivity, mioXC lets you enjoy easy connectivity with most modern computing devices.

Driver Compatibility - Interfaces that use their own drivers have to be updated all the time, or they stop working properly. Likewise some designs were USB Class-Compliant years ago, but today they aren't anymore. We engineer our drivers to today's strict guidelines, and keep them updated, to ensure compatibility for years to come.

MIDI Management - Our interfaces deliver MIDI reliably no matter what. When the MIDI data-stream gets heavy, our interfaces plough on where other interfaces choke.

Rock-Solid Electrical Design - Some MIDI interfaces introduce noise, or worse, crash your system. You’ll never get that from an iConnectivity interface.

Performance Optimized - A MIDI interface that works too slowly is useless. mioXC uses a powerful 32-bit ARM Cortex processor, ensuring dense MIDI and SysEx streams are managed with ease.

The iConnectivity Advantage: iConnectivity’s name on your interface means we took the time to do it right, whether it's our simple 1 x 1 models to our uniquely sophisticated high-end interfaces."
