The USB3.0 MIDI Junction offers USB2.0 high-speed and USB3.0 superspeed connections. It increases MIDI speed by getting the datatransfer off the 1ms grid used in USB full-speed transfer. Plus, using USB3.0 superspeed, the computer gets the chance to prioritize the USB3 MIDI data transmission over other transactions.
It's a USB class compliant interface supporting Mac OS X, iOS, Linux and Windows (Mac OS X or Windows 10 required for USB3.0).
While the evaluation board comes with one MIDI-in and one MIDI-out port, the solution supports up to 16x16 MIDI ports. In order to further increase the data throughput, the USB3.0 MIDI Junction features MIDI Running Status (switchable) and the use of more than one USB endpoint (Windows only). Please contact us regarding licensing and further information.
