Kenton Expand Line Of MIDI Devices


Kenton have officially announced the Merge-4 Intelligent MIDI Merge and the LNDR MIDI Line Driver. Here's all the details directly from their press release...
Merge-4
Kenton's Merge-4 gives you precise merging of your MIDI signals. Attach four MIDI Ins, the signals are then intelligently merged and the output mirrored to two MIDI Outs. As well as intelligently merging MIDI, Merge-4 also intelligently merges MIDI Clock and SysEx for trouble-free operation, no matter what MIDI information you throw at it.
For optimum performance the Merge-4 has opto-coupled MIDI Inputs and separate drive circuits for each MIDI Out socket. The Merge-4 also contains active circuitry that can restore the quality of signals received at the MIDI Input that may have become degraded by losses in the MIDI cable.
The Merge-4 is powered by a mains adaptor (supplied), so it doesn't need periodic battery changes to keep it working, enabling you to 'fit and forget'.
LNDR
LNDR is a master and slave pair of boxes that between them allow MIDI to be sent accurately across distances of over 500 metres using a standard Cat-5 cable (not supplied). This is over 33 times the distance achievable using standard MIDI cables!
The master and slave units are very similar, but only the master end is powered, with the slave unit powered from the cable link with the master.
The LNDR system master is powered by a mains adaptor (supplied), so it doesn't need periodic battery changes to keep it working, enabling you to 'fit and forget'. LNDR is ideal for theatres, venues and studio complexes as well as live gigs.
If you absolutely need to guarantee the integrity of your MIDI signals for anything up to half a kilometre, look no further than LNDR.
