i
does what it should. and that is not always the case ....
inventive 21.06.2023
Reason for buying this: I want to record midi so I can see what i have been improvising (guitar) in e.g. rosegarden or musescore....

I noticed that my quite expensive (700 eur) GR55 midi guitar synthesizer was not producing accurate output over the USB midi interface. I never noticed that because midi out is OFF by default and I did not use midi until recently.

But, when starting to use midi to record it.. I noticed that I could not quite recognize what I had just been playing.... Timing is off, and lots of notes missing. Of course, I checked the realtime config of my DAW etc etc. but no issues there.

Even worse, using it with the excellent GR55-floorboard software that allows you to easily configure / create patches on the GR55,
I had to turn off the midi-out, because it was making the synth unstable / unresponsive / not responding proper to midi commands like bank selection and such.

I tried different things.. cables switched etc etc.
Until I connected the classic 5pin DIN's to my midi / audio interface...
and all problems were gone..

But I already had an instrument connected to that.
which meant I had to buy another one, but just midi, nothing else.
But it should work accurately, and supporting the normal set of midi commands, including sysex and other stuff.

this little 5pin DIN <=> USB midi interface does just that.
timing good, floorboard software works without issues, patches accurately selected, GR55 keeps working smoothly.

Another product I tried before that, at the same 20 euro, did absolutely NOT do that.
And neither does my 700 euro GR55 synthesizer which is otherwise a beautiful instrument..... ( do not expect to control GR55 from a controller like a keyboard or so; that does not work )

Soy usuario habitual de Widi CME desde el principio de su salida al mercado, muy satisfecho con funcionalidad y soporte por parte del fabricante. Decidí a probar su hardware alambrico - U2 Midi Pro funciona estable y sin ningún problema. Es igual de robusto y "class compliant" como Roland UM-ONE pero cuesta la mitad, totalmente recomiendo ambos. Acabo de enterar que hay un software de CME para línea UxMidiPro que permite remapping "NoteOn to CC" y vice versa, es asombroso como ha progresado su software de configuración durante este último año. Muy feliz con la adquisición. Sin duda encargaré U6 Midi Pro (el mas alto de gama Ux Pro) para mi setup movil en próximo pedido. Gracias Thomann.

Galvanische Trennung rulez
DerMasa 15.07.2023
Bei der Auswahl waren mir zwei Dinge wichtig:
1. Eine Schnittstelle gemäß Midi-Standard, also mit galvanischer Trennung am Midi-In
2. Linux-Kompatibilität

Bei den Alternativproduktenm ESI MidiMate eX und Swissonic MidiConnect 2 war für mich nicht vorstellbar, dass sie eine galvanische Trennung besitzen, da sie zu dem Preis dann wohl kaum hätten beliebig konfigurierbar sein können.

Bei Punkt 2 war ich mir bei den Alternativen (ESI MidiMate eX, Miditech Midilink mini MIDI/USB Kabelinterface, Swissonic MidiConnect 2 und Thomann Midi USB 1x1) unsicher, weil dort nur Windows- und MAC OS-Kompatibilität ausdrücklich aufgeführt waren.
Nur das CME U2 MIDI Pro war ohne Einschränkungen „class compliant“.

Und warum brauchte ich das überhaupt?
Weil beim Koppeln zweier (Marken-)Geräte über deren USB-Anschlüsse starke Störgeräusche auftraten, und das selbst dann, wenn der zwischengeschaltete Computer (Raspberry Pi) spannungslos war.
Lesson learned: Solange es selbst Markenhersteller nicht schaffen, den Audio-Pfad galvanisch vom USB-Schaltungsteil zu trennen, sind Standard-Midi-Schnittstellen unverzichtbar. Zum Glück hatte eines meiner beiden zu koppelnden Geräte noch so eine.
Zusammen mit dem CME U2 gibt es jetzt keine Störgeräusche mehr.
