Topic: Statistic research. What MIDI connection/interface you use ???

I'm creating this topic to get a idea about what interface you use to connect your digital piano/Controller to pianoteq.

Tell me if you use a direct usb cable, or a MIDI-USB adapter cable, or MIDI-gameport cable into a soundcard with game port, or evan a advanced audio interface module like this:



PunBB bbcode test

This can be usefull to get a idea of average interface pianoteq's consumers use.

USB Cable (PTQ-USB Cable-PC/Laptop).

Re: Statistic research. What MIDI connection/interface you use ???

I use a MOTU Timepiece and rme's UFX, all of my keyboards have only standard DIN MIDI capability.

Re: Statistic research. What MIDI connection/interface you use ???

I use a Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 1st generation usb interface.
I use the midi out from my controller to the midi in of the sound card.

Re: Statistic research. What MIDI connection/interface you use ???

Same for me : Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 1st generation.
My main keyboard (Studiologic SL990Pro) Din-MIDI connected, secondary one (Roland A49) plugged by USB in my PC.

I use an RME UFX+ audio interface (because I have a lot of external hardware synthesizers I'm connecting to it at the same time, via MADI), so I'm using its MIDI ports with regular MIDI cables to my Kurzweil PC3K8 (in due time to be replaced with Roland RD-2000, hopefully).

Hard work and guts!

I use the simpler version of the Roland interface shown, a two channel Roland Duo-Capture Ex. My ancient Yamaha P80 uses standard MIDI in MIDI out cables. The interface plugs into my MacPro via USB, powering the unit at the same time.

MOTU Microbook IIc interface. Connect to MIDI keyboard and laptop via USB cables.

Console via MIDI cables to MOTU Micro-Lite interface, then USB cables to Computer with internal Sound Card.

a cheap typical USB... on a cheap used equipment. smile

Re: Statistic research. What MIDI connection/interface you use ???

I use MOTU Midi Timepiece USB to get midi info into my Mac Pro computer from my ancient Roland A-80 keyboard.  As an audio interface, I use an Apogee Duet.  Very happy with how both of these pieces of equipment work between my keyboard, computer and Pianoteq.

When recording, I like to record live into Digital Performer 9.13 and Apple Logic Pro X version 10.3, using both DAW's as a pseudo tape recorder.  Most of my audio mixing is done in LPX.

Cheers,

Joe

USB only -- ASIO4ALL software for low latency

Re: Statistic research. What MIDI connection/interface you use ???

An old internal TerraTec DMX6Fire (on my main system), USB Midi Cable if I have to use my laptop, both running Linux. (I should note that I use optical S/PDIF out for the audio, so the other qualities of the audio interface are not really relevant to my choice.)

MacBook duo core. Headphone/Line out to a Dayton-Audio class D amp to home built speaker system.  Host Pianoteq in Logic Express for recording and editing.  That's it.  Got rid of the firewire boxes, Lexicons etc.

I forgot to ask you what the latency you get.

I'm curious to see if it's possible to get better latency than 10ms using a dual core with onboard soundcard.

Re: Statistic research. What MIDI connection/interface you use ???

USB:  MOTU 8A

Re: Statistic research. What MIDI connection/interface you use ???

USB cable

20

Re: Statistic research. What MIDI connection/interface you use ???

MIDI: MIDISPORT Uno USB (usb2 single cable)

Soundcard: Apogee Groove (usb2 single cable)
1.3ms latency at 96000 Hz (128 samples)

Headphones: Sennheiser HD600

Computer: Mac Mini i5 2.5ghz. I'm running this headless so will boot without keyboard,mouse,monitor.
                I leave this on most of the time so I can just sit down at my keyboard and play. The mac mini draws little power when idle and
                virtually silent.

USB: iConnectAudio4+

2.9ms latency at 44kHz (128 samples)

Re: Statistic research. What MIDI connection/interface you use ???

Standard USB between Kawai ES7 and MacBook Pro for midi. USB out to Arcam-rPAC DAC to a pair of PreSonus E5s, ES7 speakers muted, for audio. For recording, having finally (hopefully!) got a sound/ambience I like, the PT wav output is topped, tailed and normalised in Audacity. (Preferred instruments Grotrian, Bluethner, SteinwayB and Ruckers harpsichord.)

Re: Statistic research. What MIDI connection/interface you use ???

USB cable from Casio Privia PX-330 into Behringer UMC-1820

Re: Statistic research. What MIDI connection/interface you use ???

Focusrite 2i4 (first generation) with Focusrite drivers

25

Re: Statistic research. What MIDI connection/interface you use ???

USB MIDIMATE II from ESI, using internal laptop's soundcard.
Latency at least 4-8ms, depending on buffer/frequency settings, for more details see: http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthreads. … _USB_.html

By the way now I have a newer laptop with a 7700hq processor, I can't say if the figures have improved (I don't feel difference).
