I'm looking for recommendations on a USB (1.1 or 2.x) MIDI adapter. I
saw the MOTU FastLane which looked okay but I'm not exactly sure what
to look for in terms of features and performance. Is that overkill?
For example, what makes an interface "professional quality"?
Gigastudio seems to want one. For a basic home set up would I need
more than 2inx2out? I think that's a function of how many channels I
want to have available? So two in/out would/should give me 32
channels, and I can still daisy chain several MIDI instruments?
I'm looking for something under $150 street price, that I won't
outgrow a year from now when I might have an idea of what I'm doing.
I'd appreciate any recommendations on adapters. I have an HP Pavilion
running Windows XP with USB 2.0 and FireWire ports. My model has
built in sound so there's no game port and both PCI slots are in use.
