I've had this for a couple of weeks now and I must say that it is very useful indeed. I plugged it in and it installed straight away (I'm using Windows 7), requiring no manual driver download or cd install (sick of trial software!); setup within my DAW was also without issue. The USB 2.0 capability communicates data without any lag; I've managed to control all three of my synths simultaneously using Reason 7 without any problems. The arrangement of the channels may seem a little bit odd but it means that you can control 3 MIDI instruments and receive data from another without any wires sticking out of the front. Does exactly what it's built for, and it's so small it fits in with my setup no problem! Love it!
Does what it's supposed to do. It worked right out of the box (using Win8.1), no manual driver installing, no hiccups whatsoever. There is no lag, not even with 4 input and 4 outputs all connected and sending/receiving midi.
Only two small cons that I can think of..
- Awkward placements of inputs/outputs - there are 3 inputs and 1 output on the front panel and the rest, 1 input and 3 outputs on the back side. Why!? -No labels on the top side, which makes it hard to know where to connect the your cable, so you have to look behind and that can be annoying if there other cables already connected. Anyway I had to make my own labels on the top side.
