Comments about MOTU Micro Express Interface USB:

I would love to have all my instruments communicating with each other, I would love Midi, Smpte,my multitrack tape recorder,Computer DAW program, Too join together in SWEET HARMONY But, every time I or my professional studio engineer friends want to use it..... They Never Work!!!! No more spending hours and hours, days and nights losing my hair and mind....I'll just never know the Bliss of the Midi World!

But,I would gladly pay a few Hundred, to a Midi Smpte know it all Wizard,for a quick fix.
