The new MIDIMATE hardware revision is an extremely compact MIDI interface cable with one MIDI input and one MIDI output, offered at MAP $49 US. The electronics are so small that they fit inside one of the MIDI connectors. This means that MIDIMATE looks like a simple cable with USB connector on one end and two MIDI connectors on the other end.
Based on the same USB 2.0 technology, RoMI/O II is the replacement for the RoMI/O MIDI interface. The affordable interface (MAP $69 US) features 2 MIDI inputs (one more than the original RoMI/O) and 2 MIDI outputs.
“With the new MIDIMATE and RoMI/O II we made our two top selling MIDI interfaces even more affordable and pushed them to USB 2.0. We will adopt the same technology also for our other MIDI interface products in the future.” says Claus Riethmuller, Managing Director of ESI Audiotechnik.
