Midihub is a Stand-Alone MIDI Event Processor & Router. It has classic DIN-5 MIDI input and output ports, 4 of each, as well as a USB port for power and/or communicating with your computer and the Midihub Editor software.
Within the device all MIDI data flows through customizable MIDI Processing Pipelines, sort of MIDI effects, with extremely low latency and without involving any processing on your computer allowing you to integrate Midihub to your computer-less setup.
Midihub can be used as a standard USB-MIDI interface too and it comes equiped with The Button which can send MIDI utility messages such as 'Reset All Controllers' or 'All Notes Off'.
With all this functionality combined we believe Midihub should cover all of your MIDI needs!
Using the Editor you can program Midihub to process MIDI messages in any way you want. You can have 8 different programs/presets, which can be selected on the fly using The Button or assigned Program Change messages. The programming itself is based on a simple drag & drop graphical interface, so you will be able to dive straight in.
For example, you can program Midihub to split MIDI messages coming from your MIDI keyboard by octaves to control two or more different synthesizers, you can turn single MIDI notes to fancy chords, or send different divisions of the main MIDI clock to separate devices.
Basically what you can achieve using e.g. Ableton’s MIDI effects and routing, you can achieve using Midihub and yes, without the need to use your computer after programming is done.
* Midihub Editor works on all major platforms - Windows, MacOS, Linux & even Raspbian!
