MOTU FastLane (USB) is a 2-in/2-out MIDI interface with MIDI thru ($79, compatible with Macintosh and Windows).
The professional MIDI interface for your home studio: FastLane is a simple 2-input, 2-output, 32-MIDI channel interface for Mac and Windows. It installs in seconds and opens your computer to a world of music software. FastLane’s unique advantage: a MIDI thru button allows you to play to your gear even when your computer is turned off without having to disconnect cables. No other USB interface offers this feature for this price.
FastLane takes full advantage of USB, giving you increased MIDI throughput, better timing accuracy, support for “hot-swapping” and plug-and-play expansion. Need to connect another sound module or synth? No problem. Just add another FastLane via a standard USB hub. Or mix and match FastLane with our other multi-port USB interfaces, such as the affordable 4-IN, 6-OUT micro express.
FastLane is specially engineered to operate with multiple USB devices, so your software will never lose contact with it, regardless of how many times you restart your computer or how many other USB devices you connect.
FastLane’s in and out status lights for each MIDI port provide quick visual confirmation of MIDI transmission.
FastLane is available in your choice of several colors, as well as classy basic black and charcoal. Check out some detailed pictures.
