8 IN/ 8 OUT USB MIDI Interface with hardware MIDI patcher

The UM-880 is the most powerful, easy to use MIDI interface/MIDI patcher available. The vast majority of functions are available through either one or two button commands on the front panel.

With eight sets of MIDI inputs and outputs, the UM-880 lets you simultaneously control up to 128 channels. It’s easy to connect to your computer—simply connect a USB cable and you’re done. The UM-880 is hot-swappable, so you can plug and unplug the UM-880 even while your computer is on. You can also use up to four UM-880 units simultaneously, expanding your system to 512 channels.

The UM-880 features hardware MIDI patcher functionality. MIDI can be routed directly, simply by pressing the panel buttons; and there are none of the complicated settings that are all too common on software patchers. The hardware MIDI patcher makes use of HDMR (Hardware Direct MIDI Routing) technology to ensure low-latency.

The UM-880 can also act as a Stand-alone MIDI patcher with eight memory locations where you can store patch settings.

Just a few major benefits of owning the UM-880 include:

Fast and stable MIDI data transmission realized by FPT (Fast Processing Technology of MIDI transmission)
Eight sets of input/out connections can be stored into memory.
Easy USB connection to your computer.
Convenient “Merge” function.
Cable Check Utility.
If you have a lot of MIDI devices, you will find the UM-880 to be an integral part of your studio or stage rack, or both.
