Kenton is proud to announce availability of the THRU-25, an appropriately- named new addition to its growing family of compact and sturdy MIDI utility boxes that effectively allows up to 25 MIDI devices to be connected to one MIDI output port and avoids all the usual problems associated with daisy- chaining multiple MIDI devices.
As implied by name, the THRU-25 boasts no fewer than 25 sequentially-numbered MIDI Thru ports, each with separate drive circuits for optimum performance, plus one opto-coupled MIDI IN (MIDI input) port — and all with an impressive latency of less than one microsecond! Active circuitry helps restore the quality of signals received at that MIDI input as they may have become degraded by losses incurred in the MIDI cable connecting the keyboard, computer, or other ‘master’ MIDI device to the THRU-25. In use, up to 25 ‘slave’ MIDI devices can be conveniently controlled by simply connecting them to those multiple MIDI Thru ports — one MIDI device per port.
Housed in a road-ready metal box, the THRU-25 is powered by a plug-top, switch-mode power supply. As such, there is no need for periodic battery changes to keep the unit up and running. Instead, the ACTIVE LED emits a steady green light to indicate when power is connected and no MIDI data is being received at the MIDI IN port; in turn, that green light flickers when MIDI data is being received.
The THRU-25 can be purchased from Kenton’s global network of retail partners or directly for £128.92 GBP
