Built with MOTU’s award-winning MIDI interface technology, the MIDI
Express XT is a professional MIDI interface and SMPTE synchronizer that
provides plug-and-play connectivity to any USB-equipped Mac or Windows
The Express XT provides 8 MIDI IN, 9 MIDI OUT, 128 MIDI channels and
compatibility with all Mac and Windows software. Sixteen convenient,
one-touch presets (8 factory and 8 user programmable) give you instant
front-panel access to multiple operational configurations.
The included ClockWorks™ console software for Mac OS X and Windows provides comprehensive MIDI routing, merging and muting.
As a professional-grade SMPTE time code synchronizer, the Express XT
converts and stripes SMPTE in all frame formats (23.976*, 24, 25, 29.97
drop and non-drop, and 30). SMPTE “jam sync” with adjustable
freewheeling provides glitch-free sync.
The Express XT also supports MIDI Machine Control (MMC), with the
ability to serve as either an MMC master or slave. The Express XT can
distribute MMC transport commands to all other connected MMC devices.
Connect a foot switch to the convenient front-panel pedal input and
then program it to generate MIDI data when pressed. Send the data to any
connected devices. For example, you could send MIDI patch changes to
synths and sound modules during live performance.
The MIDI Express XT takes full advantage of USB, giving you
high-speed MIDI throughput, sub-millisecond timing accuracy, support for
“hot-swapping” and plug-and-play expansion. Need to connect another
sound module or synth? No problem. Just add another MOTU USB MIDI
interface via any available USB port. And the Express XT’s internal
international power supply delivers reliable performance and
No other MIDI interface offers this much value and performance at such an affordable price.
