The i2M musicportTM is the new way to connect your musical instruments to your computer. It combines a high-impedance audio interface that won't suck the tone from your instrument, with very fast, low-latency, monophonic MIDI conversion that doesn't require special pickups to be mounted onto your instrument.
Designed particularly for guitar and bass, it works with most musical instruments including the human voice. Now you can record great-sounding tracks and play synthesizers and samplers how you have always wanted to: by using your favorite instrument. Using class-compliant USB drivers built into your computer's operating system, and with no special instrument set up required, the i2M musicportTM offers a true plug-and-play experience for all musicians.
Although latency is unavoidable when converting musical pitch into MIDI messages, the unique technology used in the i2M musicportTM reduces this to a minimum. Not only is the MIDI conversion extremely fast, but accurate and robust. In fact, the pitch-bend detection of the i2M musicportTM is more accurate than many popular guitar tuners! Fine nuances of your playing are captured by the i2M musicportTM: note velocity is determined from how hard you play; and subtle vibrato and bends are converted to ultra-accurate pitch-bend messages with virtually no latency. Everything from the emotional subtlety of a ‘cello solo to the most extreme use of a guitar's whammy bar are tracked flawlessly.
The i2M musicportTM features a very high-impedance (Hi-Z) audio input circuit. This means it won't degrade the tone of your musical instruments, unlike typical "line" inputs — often a problem with electric guitars and dynamic microphones. The input pre-amp also has adjustable gain to accommodate a wide variety of musical instruments. High quality 16-bit, 44·1kHz (CD quality), and 48kHz (DVD quality) digital audio can be recorded into your favourite audio application, or used live, for example through amp-simulators with great-sounding results.
Fashioned as an in-line 1⁄4" jack-to-USB adapter, and about the size of a car key-fob, the i2MmusicportTM has an ultra-compact design that can easily fit into your pocket. But this tiny box will redefine your musical possibilities. An invaluable composition tool, the i2M musicportTM will let you access new sounds with ease, enable you to create TAB and scores, provide you with new inspiration and let you have more fun than you thought possible.
