MINDBURNER MIDI HOST X4
What is it?
This allows the use of standard 5 pin din MIDI with a USB equiped controller keyboard e.g Akai LPK25, Alesis V25 or Keystation Mini 32
Avoids the need for a host computer.
Host to 4x outs (not technically thrus as the output comes from the host USB keyboard not the MIDI in port)
What does it do?
MIDI from USB controller is converted into 5 pin MIDI at the out plus 3 copies.
Has a MIDI input. This MIDI data goes to the connected host device.
The device is standard MIDI class compliant, disable any advanced driver modes on your hardware for best chance of compatability.
There may be a small minority of MIDI devices that use an internal USB hub, they will not work. E.g.
AKAI MPX16, Novation Launchcontrol, Behringer XR18

If your device is not on the list then unfortunately I cannot give a 100% guarantee on it's compatibility or otherwise. While I endeavour to keep the list totally accurate, there may be changes to devices as reports come to me on the compatibility of listed devices. Guitar effects units, DJ mixers and other non keyboard devices have not been tested with this host and may or may not work.
In the unlikely event that my host is incompatible with your USB hardware, the host can be returned no problem.
