Expert Sleepers has announced that its USAMO (Universal Sample-Accurate MIDI Output) – a device designed to provide a sample-accurate, jitter-free MIDI output from your DAW – is now available.
The device takes a unique approach, sending MIDI information as audio, to ensure sample-accurate sync.
The MIDI signal is generated by the USAMO software, a plug-in which runs as a virtual instrument (AU/VST/AAX, Mac & Windows), as audio in your DAW. The DAW sends MIDI to the plug-in; the plug-in translates that to audio and sends it to the USAMO hardware, via an output on your computer’s audio interface. The USAMO then reconstructs the MIDI and outputs it on a standard 5 pin DIN MIDI socket.
In addition to MIDI note and controller data from the DAW, the USAMO software also generates MIDI clock, Song Position Pointer etc. It can also handle Sysex.
Because the MIDI signals are generated and transported as audio, they are guaranteed to be sample-accurately synced with your audio, and free of the jitter often associated with computer-generated MIDI.
The USAMO is available now for £83.33 (excluding VAT) from the Expert Sleepers site.
