  1. still waiting on something with with multi audio (4 or more) and multi midi (2 or more)
    still have not seen it
    it is one thing with a home computer set up where i can a couple of rack mount interfaces
    but i like to have a portable setup that gives me an all in one

    1. I haven’t actually tried it yet but apparently you can plugin in a class compliant USB DIN MIDI Interface into a USB hub and the iConnectAudio4 (and the iCM4) will expose those ports to the rest of your system.

  2. This is a weird one. Considering the features bump you get from the iConnectaudio2 for another $50, I’m not sure why anyone would buy this.

  3. Since Synthtopia has mentioned these interfaces, as well as Roland’s new Rubix interfaces, I am a bit surprised that they haven’t mentioned the PreSonus AudioBox USB 96 ($100, 96khz, MIDI, 2 input, USB bus powered), PreSonus Studio 2|6 ($200, 192khz, two input, four output, USB bus powered), or PreSonus Studio 6|8 (needs wall wart) interfaces. The AudioBox USB 96 in particular looks like it is almost as cheap and has almost as many ports as Behringer’s UMC204HD; if it’s more readily available or has balanced outputs, it may be a better choice than the Behringer for a basic bus-powered interface.

  4. I’ve been looking for something which could take four (4) iOS inputs (such as 2x iPads and 2x iPhones) and have the audio all come out of one (1) source (ie, an amp, or speaker) like if you were having a jam session with some friends and wanted the audio from each device to sound equal and not using the device speakers….

    Doesn’t quite sound like a device like this will work, exactly, but I’m not sure….
