    Comments about M-Audio MIDIsport 4x4 Anniversary Edition USB MIDI Interface:

    I've previously owned a couple of the midiman interfaces (a 2x2 and an 8x8), and though they weren't the best you could get, they dependably did what I needed them to do. BUT...when Windows 7 came out, M-Audio was slow to update the drivers (at one point it looked like they wouldn't), and the software that previously let you configure the in-out routing on the midisport wasn't being updated at all.

    I have a main desktop PC studio with a MOTU MIDI 8x8 interface that I admit, does quite a bit more, but for quite a bit more money. But last year when Props Reason started doing MIDI out, I found I wanted some more hardware interfacing with my laptop and Reason, and the midisport 2x2 I had was a bit limiting.

    So, when I saw the 4x4 was on sale, and that with updated drivers it was working fine with Windows 7, I bought it, and have to say I'm quite happy with it so far. Easy install, easy use, and no major problems. Wish they had updated the software to let me configure the ins and outs, but I'll live as it is, especially given the sale price.

      Comments about M-Audio MIDIsport 4x4 Anniversary Edition USB MIDI Interface:

      Plug and play with Windows 8 but had some barely noticeable latency. I found a driver for it on their website, downloaded it and now it's running perfectly. Does exactly what you expect it to. 4 midi ins and 4 midi outs to your DAW. I use it with Tracktion software and am very pleased with it.

      A more ACCURATE review

      By Mr. Common Sense

      from Houston, TX

      Comments about M-Audio MIDIsport 4x4 Anniversary Edition USB MIDI Interface:

      Contrary to what the previous reviewer stated, M-Audio is now up to date on all drivers for their hardware and the MIDISport line of M-Audio MIDI-Interfaces is probably one of the most supported out there (heck they even have Linux drivers for it). Usually the best practice anyways is to not use the drivers on the supplied CD's but to go to the manufacturer's site as more recent, but that goes with any piece of music hardware out there. I will say that M-Audio is a little better than some of the competition in making their drivers available and current. FYI the MIDISport series is the only MIDI Interfaces I know of that actually have linux drivers as well. There were some issues with M-Audio and support of their MIDI Interfaces for Windows 7 and 64 bit drivers around the time he wrote the review. The hardware itself is stable so I'm wondering where the firmware comment came from. Basically it boils down to this: if you want more than a 1x1 or 2x2 MIDI interface, want the most current drivers available for whatever OS you're running (and don't want to have to guess if they have it and have to register for a login so you can see if said drivers are available like....ahem...MOTU), then go for this product. If you're needing more complex routing, you're probably needing something like the MOTU Micro-Lite or more likely the MOTU MidiExpress 128 (8x8) interface, but be prepared for issues with these.

      M-audio may drop support for item

      By giantsteps

      from Phila, Pa.

      Comments about M-Audio MIDIsport 4x4 Anniversary Edition USB MIDI Interface:

      This device routes midi signals in only the simplest sense, and if that is all you need, it may be OK if you can withstand flaky firmware and drivers.Also M-audio has not supplied 64bit drivers or Windows7 drivers for last version of Midisport 4x4 rendering it useless for those operating systems. With M-audio's track record, beware that this device may be rendered useless when an updated product comes out.
