Brings reliable MIDI capability to guitar and bass.
The Sonuus i2M musicport combines the features of their G2M guitar-to-MIDI converter and B2M bass-to-MIDI converter with an optimized USB interface for even faster performance. Designed particularly for guitar and bass, it works with most musical instruments including wind instruments and the human voice. Now you can record great-sounding synthesizers and samplers the way you always wanted to: by using your favorite instrument—no modifications or MIDI pickup needed.
Featuring extended MIDI features and configurability to satisfy the most demanding users, and a high-impedance audio interface that won’t suck the tone from your instrument; the i2M musicport is the new way to connect your musical instruments to your computer.
Plug and Play.
Using class-compliant USB drivers built into your computer’s operating system, and with no special instrument set up required, the i2M musicport offers a true plug-and-play experience for all musicians.
Ultra-Fast Monophonic MIDI Conversion.
Although latency is unavoidable when converting musical pitch into MIDI messages, the unique technology used in the i2M musicport™ 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 musicport is more accurate than many popular guitar tuners!
Fine nuances of your playing are captured by the i2M musicport: 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 optimized USB MIDI interface further minimizes latency by intelligently managing data packets and avoiding the inherent delays in the traditional MIDI hardware protocol.
