MOTU is now shipping two new bus-powered USB MIDI interfaces for Mac OS 9/X and Windows Me/2K/XP.

Built from the same technology that is found in the company's flagship MIDI Timepiece, the rackmountable MIDI Express 128 ($249) is a pro MIDI interface that provides plug-and-play connectivity to an USB-equipped Mac or Windows computer. The MIDI Express 128 provides eight MIDI In, nine MIDI Out, 128 MIDI channels and compatibility with all Mac/Windows software. Large front-panel LEDs indicate MIDI activity. Also available are sub-millisecond timing accuracy, support for hot-swapping and plug-and-play expansion. To expand, users can add another MOTU USB MIDI interface via any available USB port. The MIDI Express 128 is powered by USB: no wallwart or AC plug needed.

Also shipping is MOTU's micro lite ($149), which shares all of the same features as the MIDI Express 128 in a more compact and portable half-rack format. The micro lite provides five MIDI In, five MIDI Out and delivers 80 MIDI channels to a Mac or PC via high-speed USB connection. Removable rack attachments and custom center-jack fastener are included and allow users to easily mount two micro lites side-by-side in a standard 19-inch equipment rack.
