The Kiss-Box MIDI2TR is a professional dual port MIDI hardware interface, based on RTP-MIDI protocol, specially designed for big setups, like stages, studios, concert halls, stadiums, etc. where distance between devices prevents the use of classical MIDI solutions like MIDI 1.0 and USB MIDI. It supports Bonjour for Plug&Play operation, and different operating modes are available. The MIDI2TR also supports multiple parallel sessions, with full merging/splitting capabilities between sessions. It can also be used as a MIDI interface over WiFi for all current iOS devices (minimum iOS version : 4.2)
Power supply is provided by Power over Ethernet, using standard IEE802.3af midspans/PoE hubs (optional power injector available from KissBox).
Configuration is performed using the free KissBox Editor tool, available both for Windows and Mac platforms.
The KissBox MIDI2TR interface is also prepared for the new high-resolution protocol currently being designed by MIDI Manufacturers Association.
RTP-MIDI is an open protocol, integrated in Mac OS X since 10.4 (no specific driver needed) and in iOS since version 4.2. Free drivers for Windows (XP to Windows 8, 32/64-bits) are also available. The latest firmware also supports iPad/iPhone RTP-MIDI connection, and transforms the RTP-MIDI KissBox into a wireless MIDI interface for iPad/iPhone/iPod.
