This Interface was originally for Mac, but was adapted for use with a PC via an ISA adapter card + cable making it work with programs like Emagic Logic 2.0 on PC, for more info on the ISA adapter cards or how the interface can be hacked for use with an IBM/PC visit here: http://www.gweep.net/~prefect/eng/mtp2/ https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100508101440AAu36kr
if you have one of the rare ISA cards for connecting this interface to a PC please contact me personally!

Motu Midi Time Piece II (1992)
originally shipped with a special 12 foot long black mac rs-422 cable that said "MTP" right on the cable, not sure if these were RX/TX crossed, or straight thru (RX-RX TX-TX)

this page features info on hacking this interface to work with a pc.. not reccommended to alter the device itself but modifying a cable might be worthwhile to get working with a pc ;)

THANKS! I hope chapter 12 suffices for basic MIDI routing. Any luck with the rest of the manual? Shame on MOTU for not bothering to make it available at their website. I'm guessing from the looks of it, one could possibly fill in the blanks with the somewhat similar Timepiece AV, or not? http://cdn-data.motu.com/manuals/midi/MIDI_Timepiece_AV_USB_User_Guide_Win.pdf

motu are really really tight with their documentation - they dont post any of it online practically - they figure u need to buy the product but they are this way becaues i think they package manuals with all their products - like nicely professionally made reference materials.. so all the people who bought new + direct from them (That brings them profit) all have thesenice manuals - trouble is alot of people werent so great at keeping them packaged with the damn interfces i guess! same thing goes for alot of external box + internal card solutions - u see one part without the other part because the people unpacking the stuff didnt realize what is what and what goes with what!

Does anyone still need the other chapters of the MTP II manual? I have the whole manual and the corrections/addendums update. I also have the complete sysex specs somewhere.
