Edirol Updates USB MIDI Interface Lineup

Edirol is updating it''s USB MIDI Interface line with three new designs, the UM-1EX, the UM-2EX and the UM-3EX.

The most unique new model is the new UM-3EX 3-In/3-Out MIDI Interface that features a built-in USB hub that allows for the connection of two additional UM-3EX for a total of up to 9-In/9-Out. Three UM-3EX can be rack mounted on an optional Roland RAF-70 rack adaptor.

The UM-2EX replaces the Edirol UM-1SX and adds an additional MIDI out port for a new 1-In/2-Out configuration.

The new UM-1EX replaces the Edirol UM-1X and adds a new MIDI Thru switch that allows the UM-1EX to be used as a standalone MIDI cable or route MIDI back to an instrument or other external MIDI device.

All three new interfaces will be available in the fourth quarter of 2005.
