CM-MIDI2

Compact RTP-MIDI transceiver with USB

The CM-MIDI2  integrates both the powerful RTP-Midi implementation of our MIDI2TR professional transceiver, and the USB-Midi communication standard encountered on many musical products. The CM-MIDI2 is ideal for musical applications where high speed communication between USB and Ethernet RTP-Midi is needed.

The CM-MIDI2 acts as a gateway between the three available Midi interfaces, any Midi stream fed into one interface can be re- distributed to any of the two other interfaces. For example, Midi received on Midi IN DIN connector can be sent both to Ethernet RTP-Midi and USB.

The Ethernet RTP-Midi interface of the CM-MIDI2 can be used directly with Apple Macintosh and Windows computers. It manifests itself as a standard Midi interface, available for Midi software like Sequencers, Digital Audio Workstations, SYSEX Editor/librarians, etc…

The USB interface of the CM-MIDI2 is fully « class-compliant » and it is recognised as a standard Midi interface by Mac OS, Windows and even by iOS products ( iPhone, iPad, iPod ). Compared to other USB-Midi interfaces, the CM-MIDI2 fully unleashes the communication bandwidth between devices, since RTP-Midi offers 300x more bandwidth than Midi 1.0 interfaces.

And of course, the CM-MIDI2 can be controlled directly by any other Ethernet RTP-Midi device, like a master keyboard or DAW controller, without the need of involving a computer in the network path.
