Built from the same technology found in the MIDI Timepiece, the MIDI Express 128 from MOTU is a professional MIDI interface and that provides plug-and-play connectivity to any USB-equipped Macintosh or Windows computer.

The unit provides eight MIDI in, nine MIDI out (the ninth port mirrors output eight), for a total of 128 MIDI channels. Large front-panel LEDs illuminate to indicate MIDI activity. The unit takes full advantage of USB, providing high-speed MIDI throughput, sub-millisecond timing accuracy, support for "hot-swapping" and plug-and-play expansion.

In the event that one needs to connect another sound module or synthesizer, another MOTU USB MIDI interface can be connected via any available USB port. And the MIDI Express 128 is entirely powered by the USB port - no wall wart or AC plug. The interface is housed in a rugged metal casing and slides easily into a standard 19-inch equipment rack.

Eight MIDI inputs and nine outputs provide 128 MIDI channels

        Comments about MOTU MIDI Express 128 - MIDI Interface:

        I use to transfer data to and from the computer for several midi devices.
        It was a replacement for my Midiman MX8 which unfortunately started having continutal problems and unreliability after many years of problem free operation.

        The ME 128 is working all right, but as a replacemnt it is disappointing. It lacks many of the features of the MX8, having no SPMTE capability, and it cost more.
        I'm sorry that the MX8 was discontinued with no successor.

          Bought this to replace an old MTP AV Parallel unit due to a new system build. No issues so far; it does everything I need it to do.

              Motu kept it simple with this one...plug and play right out of the box! DAW and sequencing software saw the ports right away, no issues whatsoever. Runs off of USB power so no wall wart or power switch either. Simple simple simple! Great product from a name you can trust. [...]
