I want to use my OP-1 to talk to the rest of my MIDI gear without a laptop. A Kenton USB host would do the trick but these are increasingly hard to come by. Does any of the iconnect range fit the bill?
I’m using the iConnect4MIDI+ with OP-1 and several USB-MIDI and traditional MIDI devices. It works great! Definitely recommend it.
Yes- I think the iCM2 doesn’t behave like this and is no good for OP-1 uses .iCM4 is very nice.
4+ or OG are the only iConnect’s w/ usb midi hosts.
also, i stumbled upon this usb midi host the other day
haven't seen it mentioned here, so thought i'd just throw it out there
u can use a usb hub w/ this one
I guess it’s a seller’s market but I’m irrationally annoyed that there isn’t a cheap, portable, battery version. Almost like a breakout cable type arrangement.
@docshermsticks hey thanks for posting that link. They’re some nifty things I’m digging, like the adjustable angled midi cables. Why aren’t there more cables like that out?
@docshermsticks - Never heard of that one. Good to know there are more out there. I think an iConnectMIDI4+ at 199USD is much better value.
@ghostly606 the kentons and iconnects can be powered via a usb rechargeable battery, but yea i would dig a cable only kind of dealie too.
@kites @sparky no prob!
yea those are fucking cool cables! didn't see those. more companies should def make them like that.
Adjustable angled midi cables ! I hadn’t even dreamed about this !
audio cables like that too please
^ yes to all the above! Colorful adjustable cables for all!
