MeeBlip Cubit Go is a compact and very useful MIDI interface
MeeBlip Cubit Go is the perfect MIDI interface for multiple hardware synth setups – with multiple MIDI thru ports.
MeeBlip Cubit Go is incredibly simple, but very useful – especially for those multiple hardware synth setups. It’s a single MIDI channel input with four MIDI thru outputs, that means you get incredible timing accuracy on all four ports.
One of the most annoying things about big MIDI setups is the slight deviations in latency depending on how the setup is routed. The more devices in a MIDI chain, the more latency is introduced – however the MIDI thru port we see on some devices is designed to combat this latency.
The latency is essentially introduced by the MIDI chip inside the device receiving and decoding the information, the MIDI thru port on a device generally bypasses this chip entirely, sending an exact replica of the data signal to the next step in the chain.
With the big move to USB and compact synthesizers, we are seeing less MIDI thru ports on devices, and that’s where MeeBlip Cubit Go comes in. It’s a single MIDI input via either USB or MIDI and four hardware-mirrored MIDI outputs – particularly handy for Korg Volca and such.
How easy is it to set up and use?
The interface is class-compliant and incredibly easy to setup and use, there’s an LED to show you when it’s connected or sending/receiving signals to make troubleshooting easier. It also works with both desktop and mobile platforms (Windows, Linux, MacOSX, iOS and Android) using the various connectors/adapters.
