iConnectMIDI+ Release Date Update

Reader Dan had asked about the release dates for the iConnectMIDI+ range of devices. Originally the time frame was given as "Late Q1 or Early Q2 2013", but as we end Q1 I thought it was worth asking iConnectivity for an updated release window!

Hi Tim,

Good to hear from you!

Here is the latest shipping information to the best of my understanding:

mio - now shipping
iConnectMIDI1 - end of next month
iConnectMIDI2+ - end of next month
iConnectMIDI4+ - still TBD likely July

I am anxiously awaiting that iConnectMIDI4+, and even awarded it my Best of NAMM!

I'm waiting on the iConnectMIDI4plus

Is the difference between 2+ and 4+ only the number of midi devices you can connect
If it has all the goodies like audiopassthru then I can just spring for a 2+ for now

No, the main differences are the Ethernet and USB host port.
I'm probably going with the 2+ myself- it is less than 1/2 the price and I don't think I need those other features.

here it is again if you need it, I don't want to ruin the surprise but yes, it has audiopassthru and I'm all over it, too! end of next month...

I'm in for the 2+ also. I have the first gen so I don't need the USB host, and the Ethernet is not useful to me.

Hmm those connectors will possibly come in handy in some eventuality, I should buy some too...

Oh dear Gods I'm a technology hoarder!

Got a bit tired of waiting so emailed them and:

We are aiming to have a late June, early July release for the iConnectMIDI2+

Yay!! Really excited about this - will change how I work substantially :)

Ha, glad you emailed them because I was about to do the same... and I don't want to be too pushy. I can't wait, but I'd rather they take their time and get it right!

Here always happy to oblige, do let me know if you know of anything else worthwhile that could do with a little nudge ;)

June 25, 2013  | person_outline Baddcr

I'm looking everyday for this now... I'm genuinely excited about this! I just hope it performs every bit as well as we're led to believe!

Does anyone know if these devices can be chained to allow more devices to be connected? The 4 devices in one rack would seem to imply this, but I can't see anything in the specs about it.
