All the USB interfaces covered.      29/12/01

Cambridge, MA - Friday, December 28, 2001 - MOTU, Inc. ( today announced its first product for Mac OS X - a USB MIDI driver for all MOTU MIDI interfaces, including the 2x2 FastLane-USB, 4x6 micro express-USB, 8x8 MIDI Express XT-USB and the 8x8 MIDI Timepiece AV-USB interface/universal synchronizer. The MOTU USB driver was coded from the ground up to leverage Mac OS's new "CoreMIDI" architecture, making all MOTU USB MIDI interfaces compatible with all Macintosh software that supports standard Mac OS X MIDI drivers. "With MIDI services integrated into the operating system and a flexible driver model, Mac OS X allows MOTU USB MIDI interfaces to deliver sub-millisecond timing accuracy to all MIDI software under Mac OS X," said Jim Cooper, MOTU Marketing Director. "This is a major leap forward in performance and interoperability for the entire Mac platform." MOTU MIDI interfaces for Mac OS X take full advantage of USB's benefits, including plug-and-play ease of use, high-bandwidth I/O, low-jitter isochronous performance, hot-swapping, expansion via a standard USB hub, and the ability to mix and match different interface models. The MOTU USB MIDI driver for Mac OS X provides universal compatibility with all MIDI software that supports Mac OS X MIDI, without the need for third-party extensions. In addition, all MIDI software for Mac OS X can take advantage of MOTU's MTS (MIDI Time Stamping) technology, which provides a third of a millisecond timing accuracy for every MIDI event transmitted between a MOTU interface and the computer. A public beta of the MOTU USB MIDI driver for Mac OS X in now available for download at
