The professional MIDI interface for your home studio: FastLane is a simple 2 input, 2 output, 32-MIDI channel interface for Macintosh and Windows. It installs in seconds and opens your computer to a world of music software. FastLane's unique advantage: a MIDI thru button allows you to play to your gear even when your computer is turned off — without having to disconnect cables. No other USB interface offers this feature for this price.

USB MIDI interfaces allow you to connect your computer to compatible external hardware devices like a MIDI controller for example, or a mixing surface. The MIDI controller can send MIDI messages to a sound module on your PC and tell it to trigger sounds and/or even manipulate effects like panning, volume, cut-off etc...

USB interfaces are pretty much the common standard now for connecting external MIDI devices to your computer, but if you've just bought a new MIDI controller and are saddled with an older computer (or vice versa: New PC, older MIDI keyboard) there are adaptors that will hook the 2 technologies together, so fear not, you can still keep hold of your vintage gear.

We list the latest USB MIDI interfaces available on the market today.
