Great thing for a very good price
TzaSh 24.02.2022
I own few synths and drum machines, most of them communicate via good old midi DIN (some have humming ground loops while used via midi USB, and some don't have USB at all). The unit is easy to plug and play with Ableton, and USB hub is very handy as well.
Not a whole 5 star because of the not very useful rack ears improvisation that comes with the unit. It's an external pair of ears, fits well on the sides of the unit but meant to be hold in place using double side stickers (supplied in the box). Will simply not hold... I've used some duct tape to attach to unit, and it's in the non visible side of rack so I'll live with that.

Very easy to use
JP Robert 07.03.2021
I have a small home studio with a MIDI mix of DIN and USB devices. The M8U makes it very easy to connect my gear and change MIDI connections very fast when needed. It helps me very much in my workflow.
Only one issue: the rack ears are attached to the device with stickers instead of screws and as they are not very precisely made, it slowly slips down if is not in an horizontal position. In my case I had to wrap some tape around the ears and the device to make them stick together. But as it's not visible in the rack I don't consider it a major issue and I'm still very happy with it.

Awesome Midi Interface
Bnso 21.06.2020
I really dig this interface, really well-built and offers so many functions!

Inputs and Outputs are configurable, which makes this unit extra useful, as well as the usb 3 inputs on the back make this a super convenient usb hub too!

I truly recommend this unit and i am really happy to own one.

Very happy
Guildner 08.02.2019
I have owned quite a few midi interfaces in my time and this is the best and most versatile one that I have used. Timing is good and the way it is configured is excellent.

There are 16 ports and each one can be configured as an input or an output. This is very handy.

It is also well built and sturdy.

I would like to be able to rackmount it but no biggie.

Would buy again. Highly recommended.
