I\'m using a MidiSport 1x1 USB interface right now. I suspect it of being at the root of a few problems (pops/clicks/ occasional MIDI hiccups) and apart from which I need to get direct MIDI access to the other 3 ports.
Everyone seems to agree that USB is pretty naff, but looking through the music press it\'s pretty difficult to see a MIDI interface that isn\'t USB these days.
Anyone got any recommendations (in my case I don\'t need loads of in and outs, tough it might be interesting to see what\'s out there)
Thanks guys for the informative replies. I think I may go with the Unitor, or the MidiSport 8x8; both give way more ins and outs than I need, but who knows in a year\'s time?
Anyway, for me the key thing is reliable, stable operation - I don\'t mind paying for a bit of redundancy to get it. Just a thought but I don\'t know why interface manufacturers don\'t give the option of MIDI and/or serial as standard - guess it\'s a cost issue as always.
The Unitor also gives you video syncing (SMPTE) options. You may not need that, but who knows in the future...
If you make a copy of a video and \'stripe\' SMPTE code along to one of the audio tracks, you can use the second video to control your sequencer. This way you can write and record your own underscore for any (rented) video.
