MIDI Splitter is a 1-In 4-Out MIDI thru box. It allows the user to control up to 4 devices using just one MIDI controller. It can be used with one of AmpTone Lab controllers (XY MIDIpad, XY MIDIpad mini, MIDI Strip) or any other MIDI controller equipped with a standard MIDI port.
MIDI Splitter can be powered by one of the 2 power sources – a battery or a standard power supply. Power supply is the primary power source and battery will not be used when it is plugged in. Device operates at 9V, meaning it can be powered by a typical 9V power supply (2.1mm center negative) or a 9V battery (high-quality battery included in the package).
Making MIDI Splitter a MIDI-powered device was never an option, as it causes some serious compatibility issues. Many MIDI controllers and interfaces are not supplying enough voltage to power a thru-box. Many of them don’t supply voltage at all, making it impossible to use with a MIDI-powered thru-box. Therefore a real power source is necessary to make sure all MIDI devices are supported.
MIDI Splitter works with any MIDI device equipped with a standard MIDI port (DIN-5). Just plug your MIDI controller or a device transmitting MIDI messages to MIDI IN port, then plug the receiving MIDI devices to MIDI OUT ports and your MIDI Splitter is ready to work!
MIDI Splitter is equipped with a status/data LED flashing on every incoming MIDI message. It works on all 16 MIDI channels and supports all types of messages (including CC, NoteOn, NoteOff, SysEx, Clock etc.).
MIDI Splitter features an opto-isolated MIDI input circuitry which ensures high quality data transmission even over long cables. The IC inside the box cleans up the MIDI data to make sure any unwanted partial MIDI messages are not transmitted to the end devices.
MIDI Splitter comes with adhesive backed rubber pads and adhesive backed Velcro strips, which can be attached to the back of MIDI Splitter. Rubber pads will help MIDI Splitter stay firmly on any surface and Velcro strips can be used to attach MIDI Spliter to a pedalboard. Two types of Velcro strips are included, which means you can also use them to mount your MIDI Splitter under a desk or on the floor.
