MIDI2TR

Dual MIDI Transceiver

The KissBox Dual MIDI Transceiver allows you to use a standard Ethernet IP network to send the MIDI protocol to any part of your system.

You can configure a MIDI2TR to behave as a MIDI interface for a Computer  running Windows or OSX. Although connected trough the IP network, software running on your PC or Mac will “see” the MIDI2TR as a local MIDI interface, compatible with any existing MIDI application.

Multiple MIDI2TR units can distribute data between them, and/or interface with controllers on the network. A single MIDI2TR can receive and merge the control data of up to 8 different controllers, computers or other MIDI2TR units at the same time. Midi data can be send via WiFi interfaces and to iOS devices.

The MIDI2TR standardly uses the RTP-MIDI network protocol to send and receive data over the network. RTP-MIDI is an open standard, which is natively supported by Mac OSX (no driver to install), and for which a free driver is available for Windows (XP to Win8, 32 and 64 bits). Because the MIDI2TR also makes use of the Bonjour standard, setup and configuration is minimal. Computers running Linux OS or any special software or controller not capable of handling the RTP-MIDI protocol can utilize our optional UDP firmware which allows for direct UDP packet handling.

When used with the RTP-MIDI firmware the MID2TR is compatible with iOS devices over WiFi, without the need of using a computer as a bridge.The MIDI2TR is seen as a standard MIDI interface on iPhone and iPad, compatible with any existing MIDI application.
