CM-MIDI

Compact RTP-MIDI transceiver

The CM-MIDI is a low-cost compact version of the KissBox MIDI2TR transceiver, ideal for musical applications, for which options like Power over Ethernet and direct UDP support are not necessary. It provides 2 RTP-MIDI endpoints, each of them supporting up to 16 sessions in parallel.

The main MIDI-N and MIDI-OUT connector pair is assigned to one RTP-MIDI endpoint. The other connector-endpoint can be used as either MIDI-IN or MIDI-OUT depending on user needs ( jumper setting inside the CM-MIDI ).

The CM-MIDI can be used directly with any Apple Macintosh computer (RTP-MIDI support is fully integrated in OS X). On Windows computers it will (with the help of our free Windows driver) appear as two independent MIDI interfaces. It can be used in association with any MIDI software like Sequencers, Digital Audio Workstation, SYSEX editors/librarians, etc…

The CM-MIDI is the “hardware Key” of the KissBox VSTizer product range. It can be installed directly near your favorite hardware synthesizer, without the need to care about the distance between the computer and the synthesizers.
