Hangs/Crashes whenever there's incoming MIDI Clock/Sync to the USB port for a few seconds
Koshdukai, 07.08.2021
It kinda works fine when converting very simple USB-only controllers to MIDI DIN Out or when converting MIDI DIN In into USB-only devices.

Connecting it to USB-only devices that send out MIDI Clock/Sync msgs will hang it after a few seconds, so it's useless to convert USB MIDI devices like sequencers or drum-machines, like the (USB-only) Millenium MD-90 Mobile Drum, which was exactly why I bought the Miditech USB MIDI Host and it turned into a relatively expensive paperweight for me, since it's useless for what I wanted it for.

I also found out that it doesn't work with the latest Teenage Engineering OP-1 OS#243 firmware update. It does work with OP#242 ('OP-1 Midi Device MIDI 1' port), so I'm guessing it can't distinguish which of the 2 (renamed to 'OP-1 MIDI 1' and the new Audio 'OP-1') virtual device ports should connect to. It may be wrongly binding to the new Audio one now instead of the MIDI one, so it recognizes the connection (LED changes from RED to GREEN) but no data is transmitted to/from the MIDI DIN ports.

I ended up making my own custom made USB MIDI router out of a Raspberry Pi Zero and a powered USB HUB and an M-Audio MidAir interface but a wanted an even more compact and simpler solution which, unfortunately, the Miditech USB MIDI Host isn't and I ended up paying for it just to know that.

If MidiTech provides a firmware update that fixes these issues, then yeah, this would be a properly useful product. Until then, it's a paperweight :(

Old meets new.
Johnguitars, 25.11.2018
I use this to link my Yamaha NP-32 piano to a Roland BK-7M and, for the most part, it does the job O.K. It does however hang up occasionally, causing a random note to stick. Switching the Roland off and on fixes this and it does not happen every time I play. This problem may of course lie with the keyboard or the module and the Miditech might be completely innocent. As I do not gig it is not a problem. Note that the midi sockets are rather stiff so make sure the cable is rammed home.

Miditech USB MIDI Host

I use this box to send/receive MIDI singnals to my synths and modules. This is an excellent little box that does exactly what it is meant to do, *BUT*...
Thomann! The PSU with the EU/UK adapter is *HUGE!!* Please look at getting some UK only PSUs!
