OVERVIEW

Portable plug-and-play connectivity to any USB-equipped Mac or PC!

Built from the same technology found in MOTU's flagship MIDI Timepiece, the micro lite USB MIDI interface provides 5 MIDI in, 5 MIDI out, 80 MIDI channels and compatibility with all Macintosh and Windows software. Large front-panel LEDs illuminate to indicate MIDI activity. High-speed MIDI throughput, sub-millisecond timing accuracy, support for hot-swapping, and plug-and-play expansion. Need to connect another sound module or synth? No problem. Just add another MOTU USB MIDI interface via any available USB port. And the micro lite is powered by USB bus, so no wall wart or AC plug.

With its attractive yet rugged metal casing, the micro lite slides easily into a shoulder bag or briefcase for ultracompact portability and convenient desktop operation. Removable rack attachments, as well as a custom center-joint fastener, are included and allow you to easily mount 2 micro lites side by side in a standard 19-inch equipment rack.

FEATURES
  • 5 MIDI inputs and outputs provide 80 MIDI channels
  • Simple expansion by plugging in multiple units
  • Includes drivers for Mac OS9, Mac OS X and Windows Me/2000/XP
  • High-speed USB connection

Ol' Reliable

Comments about MOTU Micro Lite USB MIDI Interface:

After seven (7!) years, this has been the only MIDI interface I've ever needed to own. The MOTU Micro Lite is built like a tank, has nothing on it that can break. Throw it at the wall and you'll have a dented wall. No power supply, no knobs. Simple and to the point - It does MIDI. Five times. The reason it's been around so long is because it works. It will probably continue to be around so long as USB is a standard. I'm finally considering getting a second for more I/O (you can connect two together side by side to fill 1U of rack space. Hardware is included, at least it was 7 years ago).

perfect for my home studio

By Matt-8Z1Zy

Comments about MOTU Micro Lite USB MIDI Interface:

The reason I bought this was because MOTU has actively been up to date with Windows Vista x64. All of my old hardware is incompatible, or not supported . I simply installed the CD software, then went to MOTU's support site, and downloaded the latest drivers. This thing is built like a rock. I have not experienced any issues as of yet: although, I have only owned it for about a week. I am currently using it with Ableton with 3 keyboards. And on a side, the shipping was unexpectedly quick, only took 2 days (using the 2-5 free shipping) Great all around experience!

    Comments about MOTU Micro Lite USB MIDI Interface:

    I use this product with Hauptwerk Virtual Organ software. Because of the complex nature of the MIDI signals generated by the organ, I frequently had a problem with sticking notes. After the installation of the Micro Lite USB MIDI Interface there has not been a single instance of sticking notes.
