Devices tested with iConnectivity USB-MIDI Host Port connection

USB Ports

Many iConnectivity interfaces (e.g. iConnectAUDIO 4+, iConnectMIDI4+, mio10 and mio4) feature a USB Host Port connector that enables users to plug MIDI equipment directly into the interface via USB without requiring the use of a computer's USB ports. Not only that, users can attach a standard USB hub to the iConnectivity port and via that attach up to 10 MIDI USB devices at the same time, which makes this a very useful feature in a large MIDI-based setup.

Note that the iConnectivity USB Host Port is designed so that it can operate as a MIDI interface even without having a computer connected. However that means it only passes MIDI information - you cannot use it as a normal USB hub, or pass audio data via it. It is purely a MIDI connection only. As a consequence of this some controller devices that have extra functionality which requires a direct connection to a computer may not work fully or work at all via our Host Port. This particularly applies to "smart" hybrid controller+software devices such as those from Native Instruments.

The following list is derived from in-house testing at iConnectivity plus reports from our users. As such it is not meant to be definitive and nothing listed here should be taken as a guarantee. However we are fairly confident that the devices listed as Working should operate well in our MIDI environment. Devices listed as Partially Working usually will pass basic MIDI via our Host Port, but may lack other specialised functions (such as lights flashing etc.) or exhibit slightly weird behaviour. Devices listed as Not Working will not work at all while connected to our USB Host Port but will work fine as part of your system as long as they are directly connected to your computer.

This list is a work in progress and will be updated as we and our users test more USB MIDI devices. If your device is not listed but you know it works, do let us know, we would be happy to share that information!
