MOTU MIDI Express XT USB can be racked and it only takes up 1 rack space, and it has enough ins and outs to power your whole MIDI set up! There are 8 ins and 8 outs on this interface, it is very simple to use and set up. You can go to your MIDI settings in our software and it will show that you have this MIDI device connected and installed then just click on it. It is that simple, as long as you understand MIDI and how to use it, it will take no longer than 10 minutes to get Express XT setup.

UTILIZATION

Some of the key features of the MOTU MIDI Express XT are the audio click input, this will just take your click from your DAW and turn it into MIDI data on the Express XT, the MIDI Express XT USB has a merge matrix style to it, this will allow you to unplug MIDI cables and plug them back in with different gear and you wont have to restart anything or even reload it in your software. It is truly plug and play with the Express XT USB. It is compatible with Windows PC’s and Mac’s, it comes with driver software to load either one. It works with Windows XP, Windows 7 or Windows VISTA, and you only need OS 10.3 or higher for Macs.


OVERALL OPINION

The MOTU MIDI Express was a great addition to our garage studio because we have a lot of MIDI gear and needed to get rid of the small USB MIDI inputs that we where using. Now we have all of your keyboards going right into the Express XT, with daisy chaining we can route MIDI through everything now. If we do get one more MIDI instrument then we will get rid of this and look for a bigger unit that has more ins and outs. But until then this is the best MIDI interface that we have used.
