If you use Cubase VST 5. Try Steinberg Software now for 30 days. This overcomes the sometimes temperamental nature of both the Universal Serial Buss and the operating system, since the interface doesn’t have to rely on smooth delivery of data in real time. The Midex 8’s timing also seemed fairly consistent as I loaded the other ports with MIDI data, while that of standard multi-port devices tended to get worse as more and more data was sent to them. That’s MIDI for you. It features a ‘designer’ 1U desktop case with optional brushed-aluminium end cheeks for rackmounting.

Unfortunately you will lose LTB support in the process — only when Cubase talks directly to the Midex 8 drivers do you get the improved timing. A three-metre-long USB cable is also supplied, which should be adequate for most studios. Holding both buttons down for several seconds causes a full reset, equivalent to unplugging the Midex 8 from USB. No Mac drivers yet. In addition, those with complex setups who want to install multiple Midex 8s only currently available if running Windows ME should note that the USB buss of a computer can only supply up to 1 Amp, which will only power two interfaces.

Video tutorials Our YouTube channel not only offers a selection of product presentation videos but also several very helpful and informative video tutorials. This inofficial driver can be installed at one’s own risk.
Nor can these technologies overcome the serial nature of MIDI itself: The Midex 8’s timing also seemed fairly consistent as I loaded the other ports with MIDI data, while that of standard multi-port devices tended to get worse as more and more data was sent to them.
The views expressed are those of the contributors and not necessarily those of the Publishers or Editor. These convey far more information from the other side of the studio than standard LEDs, but it’s a shame that all the indicators share a common transparent moulding, since some light leaks from one to the next — at some angles this results in an adjacent inactive digit being nearly as bright as an active one.

If you use Cubase VST 5. Expansions for VST Instruments. Steinberg wisely recommend not connecting other USB devices to the same port if they have ‘fluctuating bandwidth requirements’, and at the very least not using them at the same time.

However, after this excellent timing performance, I was disappointed to find that the current Midex 8 drivers mdex not multi-client, at least not when using the standard Windows MME driver interface.
Steinberg offers midez range of products at special education pricing for facilities, educators and students. Each beat of the VST Instrument is sample-accurate, and will emerge every mS or samples apart, so if you record the two audio signals into a stereo audio track, any MIDI timing discrepancy can be measured by examining the relative positions of the sample-accurate VST Instrument in the left channel and the MIDI drum source in the right channel of the waveform.
Data can be sent from multiple ports simultaneously, which is a big improvement over a midec serial or parallel-port MIDI interface where the more ports there are, the more the delays can accumulate. Of course, the MIDI protocol itself still limits the density of data that can be transmitted successfully, and when I continued adding tracks full of aftertouch, pitch-bend and other controller data I could still eventually choke the Midex 8 to the point where it spat out notes with almost random timing, just like any other interface.
Rock-solid sub-millisecond timing that bypasses USB micex operating-system uncertainties.

Bear in mind that just as with VST Instruments, your MIDI timing won’t be any more precise during recording — it’s only on playback that midrx precision timing kicks in — so you won’t gain anything from LTB or AMT when attempting mifex capture the subtleties of a live performance.
I’m sure many musicians will agree with their priorities, but reading between the lines I suspect Steinberg may still manage this with a future driver release.
