MIDI Solutions router
The Router allows you to filter selected MIDI channels or route selected MIDI messages to either/both/neither of the its two MIDI outputs.
The MIDI Solutions Router is a 1-in 2-out MIDI data router/filter. Selected ranges of MIDI data may be routed to either, both, or neither of the outputs. The Router also allows this data to be rechannelized to any other MIDI channel. Selectable data types include Note, Pressure Controller, Program Change, Pitch Bend, and System messages. A special Keyboard range data type allows Notes to be split into ranges with all other channel messages sent to both ranges. Settings are stored in a most recent setting priority format, allowing virtually any type of routing, filtering, or keyboard split to be performed. These settings are retained even after power is removed from the unit.
The Router is programmed by sending it MIDI System Exclusive messages. This can be done in a few different ways. MIDI Solutions Programming Tools is a program for Windows that creates a Standard MIDI File containing System Exclusive messages from settings you select. To program the Router, simply play this MIDI File into it once. The Router will retain these settings even after power is removed. If your platform is not Windows, this Standard MIDI File can be copied to a disk and played it into the Router from a Mac, or any other Standard MIDI File player. If you don't have access to a Windows machine, you can create these System Exclusive messages yourself using any sequencer with System Exclusive editing capabilities - complete instructions describing how to create these messages are included. Or, if you would rather not program the unit yourself, we can preprogram it to your specification for a $20 fee (please allow an additional week for preprogrammed products).
The Router is MIDI-powered and requires no batteries or power supply to operate. A MIDI indicator LED lights up when the product is powered and flashes when MIDI data passes through it.
