For the simplest plug and play functionality, MOTU's FastLane USB 2 x 2 MIDI interface for the Mac and PC is hard to beat. A unique advantage at this price point is the ability to still function when the host computer is switched off - which means musical ideas can be worked on without having to wait for the computer to power up. The FastLane USB takes full advantage of the USB architecture, providing increased MIDI throughput, better timing accuracy, support for "hot-swapping" and plug-and-play expansion. When the need arises for more ins and outs, it is simply a matter of adding more units or even other fully featured multi-port USB interfaces.
- A MIDI thru button allows the interface to functon even when the computer is turned off - no need to disconnect cables
- FastLane is specially engineered to operate with multiple USB devices, so the software will never lose contact with it, regardless of how many times the computer is restarted or how many other USB devices are connected
- Compact and lightweight desktop model
