Midihub is a versatile MIDI Processor & Router! It has classic MIDI Input and Output ports, 4 of each, as well as a USB port for power and/or communicating with your computer. Using the dedicated Editor you can set-up Midihub to process MIDI messages in tons of useful and creative ways and once your presets are stored you can use Midihub completely stand-alone in your computer-less setup.
What Can It Do?
Here’s a quick non-exhaustive list of the uses you could expect to fulfill using Midihub.
|Classic USB MIDI Interface||MIDI Thru Box||Master Clock|
|MIDI Router||MIDI Splitter||Arpeggiator|
|MIDI Filter||MIDI Note Repeater||MIDI Note Velocity Amplifier / Equalizer|
|MIDI Transformer||MIDI Randomizer||MIDI Delay|
|CC LFO||MIDI Sustain Pedal||Micro Tuner|
|Note Scale Remapper||Note Transpose||Voice Dispatcher|
|MIDI Combiner / Merger||Keyboard Splitter||Multi-CC Controller using a Single CC Knob|
|MIDI Sync Offset||Note to Chord||Fixed Note Length|
And Midihub can do any combination of the above and even more!
Editor & Pipes
The Midihub Editor lets you customize Midihub’s processing logic by laying down the processing pipelines. The interface is based on intuitive Drag & Drop. Every pipeline starts from an Input or Generator pipe, from which MIDI data flows to the right, until it ends up in an Output pipe.
Find the documentation of all the pipes here.
You can play around with the Editor even without the device connected. Download it for your platform below.
CYLVESTER x Midihub
In the videos below Tobias and Max, the electronic music duo called CYLVESTER, took the challenge to present how they use Midihub in their DAW-less setup. We are enormously grateful to them for making this series and we encourage you to follow the band on YouTube and Instagram as their new album is about to drop!
Midihub in the Wild
In the 3rd part of his “Generative Music Making Series” @loopop uses Midihub to present various MIDI generative ideas that were heavily inspired by Ólafur Arnalds. For more music tech tips and tricks we suggest you to subscribe to his YouTube channel!
One year ago, we had started a Midihub Beta Test program where beta version units were sent out to users around the world to give Midihub some real world studio problems to solve and even empower the users to achieve more with the gear they already had. We had received some extremely valuable feedback which allowed us to take Midihub to the next level, the one we are at as of this writing.
Feel free to dig into the beta-tester reviews available here. One thing to keep in mind while reading is that all of the reviews were written at the end of 2018, before many of the changes acting upon the user feedback got released.

We had already manufactured the Beta Batch of Midihubs and the device has been stress-tested by our beta-testers. In other words Midihub is already in a mature state with some minor software improvements to be implemented before the fulfilment date.
All manufacturing partners involved in the production process are located here in Vilnius, Lithuania, allowing us to resolve any possible issues quickly and face-to-face.
However, as this is a hardware project as any other, some delays may occur, for example, when sourcing the required parts which might not be immediately available at the quantities required or the manufacturing time affected by the upcoming holidays season. To be safe we have taken this into account when estimating the shipping date.
