Review: E-MU Xmidi 1×1 Tab Midi Interface
Inexpensive 1x1 midi interface
Plug and play
recently discontinued (no idea why - this thing is GREAT!)
E-MU’s Xmidi 1×1 is a plug-and-play USB MIDI interface that adds a MIDI input and output to your computer. I needed to get midi I/O into my macbook pro and was looking for a low profile solution. Couldn’t be happier with the Xmidi. On my macbook it was a simple “plug and play” – no drivers, no added software, no power brick, just plug it in, plugged in my WX5, and I was playing. Unfortunately it looks like the unit was recently discontinued (bought mine new December 2012), but if you need to buy something new today I recommend the Roland UM-ONE.
