  1. I had bought the iConnectivity iConnectAudio4+
    What an utter piece of crap, the service was shitty as well.
    Never again, I shudder when I think about the time I wasted with that lemon.

    1. As Mio 10 owner, I 100 % dont agree with your comment about their service. I find it find it ok on their Facebook group.

    2. Definitely not my experience. Their support team took the time to walk me through a complex setup in a video chat last year. Can’t imagine getting that level of service from a a mass-market brand.

  2. Can’t speak for their service because I never needed it but I loooove my iConnectAudio4+. I use it primarily for combining and sending midi between 8 midi devices, a computer and an iPad. The software is a bit arcane and definitely takes some considerable time to become proficient with, but the hardware is rock solid and the fine grained controlled routing of midi data between devices is incredible. Honestly I love mine, it allows for a computer free setup that otherwise would be painful to manage. Audio quality is perfectly adequate too, I sometime use my iPad as a send effect with the 4+ handling in/out from my mixer, works great.I also had their original midi only device, it was quite good but I upgraded to the 4+ because I wanted audio routing. My only real complaint is the cost of the proprietary lightning to USB-B cable required for iOS devices, but you get one for free in the box so it’s not a huge pain.

  3. This does absolutely everything I can think I would want to do currently. I need to update my iPad to the base Euro 400 model when playing live becomes a thing we can do again so although I love the functionality, the price stings a teeny bit IMHO. Bones of Euro 800 to get where I’d like to be… eeek!

  4. iconnect makes great things, and has not let me down in 6 years of heavy road use. Had 2 Iconnect 4+, and an iconnect 2+ for various routings, and triggering with ios and handling multiple din midi across the stage. This looks killer! Way to fill a niche – my Roland GoMixer ive been using for web is tempermental, and overloads easily which is frustrating.

  5. I’ve got an old-school iConnectMIDI interface and it’s fantastic – it just does so much useful stuff and has been rock solid.

    This one looks like it could be a major upgrade, but I’m also really interested in the new router from the NDLR guys.
