I've been using a yamaha ux16 but acid doesn't seem to like it. Does anyone have any recommendations vis a vis a usb midi interface that is stable with Acid?

I had alot of problems with the uno though sony could not repro any of it. I bought a 2X2 and all is well with the latest drivers.

HTH.

I have a MIDIsport 2x2, which I used to use for my midi keyboard controller. I had a lot of trouble with midi latency in Acid. Then I started using the midi port on my Edirol UA-1000 interface instead. The midi latency problems disappeared. Hence, I don't recommend the MIDIsport 2x2. YMMV.

MIDI ports have absolutely nothing to do with latency. Latency is an audio issue that has to do with the soundcard/device you are using.

That's because the Edirol UA-1000 is an audio interface that also has MIDI ports. Like I said, one has nothing to do with the other although I can understand that from your perspective it solved the problem that you perceived was being caused by MIDI. It was actually the low audio latency of the Edirol audio interface that helped you out.

I bet you would if you had a better audio card to start out with. ;-)

I have a MIDISport 2x2 that I use on my laptop and it's a great little MIDI interface that simply works and works well. You can also use it as a stand-alone MIDI thru splitter box without a computer. I highly recommend it.

We have a Midisport 8x8 and a 4x4 here - and both are peachy. Even work in Vista32 fine. No support for Vista64 atm though, but one day hopefully. I use a lot of external gear and need decent MIDI - and the Midisport are definitely in that catagory.

We use MOTU USB Midi Timepiece, 4x4 and Fastlanes without any issues.
