What is the i2M musicport™

MIDI Converter & Hi-Z USB Audio Interface - the i2M musicport™ is the new way to connect your musical instruments to your computer.

The i2M musicport™ combines the features of both the G2M™ and B2M™ (to support both guitar and bass) with an optimised USB interface for even faster MIDI performance. It supports extended MIDI features and is highly configurable. The high-impedance audio interface of the i2M musicport™ won’t suck the tone from your instrument.

Please note:

  • The i2M musicport™ is a monophonic MIDI converter. You have to play only one note at a time. This has two advantages: you don't need a special pickup on your guitar or bass; and you get the fastest, most accurate MIDI tracking possible. For more info, click here.

  • The i2M musicport™ also works as an audio interface so you can directly record your guitar or bass to your computer, or play it though amp-simulators (you can hear this in the video above).

  • The i2M musicport™ works great with the Apple iPad. To use this you need the USB Camera Connection kit from Apple. For more info, click here

Plug and PlayUniversal MIDI -- No MIDI pickup needed!

The i2M musicport™ uses class-compliant USB drivers built into your computer’s operating system. It doesn't require any special instrument set-up and is plug-and-play experience for all musicians.

Ultra-Fast Monophonic MIDI Conversion

Although latency is unavoidable when converting musical pitch into MIDI messages, the unique technology used in the i2M musicport™ reduces this to a minimum. Not only is the MIDI conversion extremely fast, but accurate and robust. In fact, the pitch-bend detection of the i2M musicport™ is more accurate than many popular guitar tuners!

Fine nuances of your playing are captured by the i2M musicport™: note velocity is determined from how hard you play; and subtle vibrato and bends are converted to ultra-accurate pitch-bend messages with virtually no latency. Everything from the emotional subtlety of a ‘cello solo to the most extreme use of a guitar’s whammy bar are tracked flawlessly.

The optimised USB MIDI interface further minimises latency by intelligently managing data packets and avoiding the inherent delays in the traditional MIDI hardware protocol.

Flexible MIDI Architecture

The MIDI converter architecture is very flexible and powerful comprising six zones (splits), each with configurable pitch bend, MIDI channel, transpose and other parameters.

Hi-Z USB Audio Interface

The i2M musicport™ features a very high-impedance (Hi-Z) audio input circuit. This means it won’t degrade the tone of your musical instruments, unlike typical “line” inputs — often a problem with electric guitars and dynamic microphones. The input pre-amp also has adjustable gain to accommodate a wide variety of musical instruments.

High quality 16-bit, 44·1 kHz (CD quality), and 48 kHz (DVD quality) digital audio can be recorded into your favourite audio application, or used live, for example through amp-simulators with great-sounding results.

An ASIO driver (only supported on Windows operating systems) is available to provide low latency audio and features the unique ability to use any other audio device (even other ASIO devices) as the output audio device so you can hear everything you do in real time.

Future-Proof (Upgradeable Firmware)

To support new features and to make it futureproof, the firmware (internal software) of the i2M musicport™ can be upgraded. This means you can invest with confidence in the i2M musicport™.

Pocket-Sized / Gigantic Possibilities

Fashioned as an in-line ¼" jack-to-USB adapter, and about the size of a car key-fob, the i2M musicport™ has an ultra-compact design that can easily fit into your pocket.

Desktop Editor Software

The i2M musicport™ features a very flexible and powerful MIDI converter architecture with 6 zones enabling MIDI to be sent on up to 6 MIDI channels simultaneously, with each zone being independently configurable. You can customise each of the operating modes for your particular requirements and exchange these settings with other i2M musicport™ users.

Four presets can be stored on the i2M musicport™ so you can switch between these without requiring the Desktop Editor Software. This software is available for Microsoft Windows, and OSX (10·5 and above).

Note: the i2M musicport™ doesn't include its own MIDI sounds, you must use suitable software (sampler, synthesizer, sound module etc) or your computer to record or to hear the MIDI output.
