    Comments about Keith McMillen Instruments MIDI Expander:

    The only thing that keeps it from 5 stars is that is KM specific. It won't add MIDI to other USB devices, or so I've read. I'm not really concerned by this, but it may be a deal breaker for newer USB ONLY gear users. Almost all my MIDI gear is pre-USB MIDI so that really isn't an issue for me. My QuNexus works great with my iPhone, iPad and computer, but for all my old rack gear w/ 5 pin din MIDI, I need this type of product. For that it's great. A bonus w/ the QuNexus is now my MIDI keyboards and computer can be connected to my non-MIDI Prophet 5 via the CV gates of the QuNexus. That's pretty sweet.

        Comments about Keith McMillen Instruments MIDI Expander:

        Does the job to interface the 12 step to legacy midi but the extra legacy midi input is basically useless as it will only pass thru very limited midi.

        Would have been very handy if it was a full midi port

        Use The Softstep, 12 Step or QuNeo to Control Hardware

        Comments about Keith McMillen Instruments MIDI Expander:

        This product is very simple to use and lightweight / portable. It allows you to expand the functionality of the already very powerful Keith McMillen line to controller external hardware such as synthesizers, other midi controllers, samplers, effects units and more.
        This is a simple unit that allows you to expand your Keith McMillen midi controller(s) functionality. With it you can control outboard hardware, such as synths (Minotuar anyone) and samplers, as well as effects units and more.
        I've had mine for about a year now and it's been very solid, with no issues. I have no complaints and find it's small size and light weight to be a real boon on the road. Fits into a small bag and is metal - super durable.
        This product is very inexpensive and allows you to greatly expand the functionality of the Keith McMillen line, such as the 12 Step, QuNeo, and SoftStep.
