Roland has announced it is shipping the UM-ONE, a super-compact, affordable, and easy to use MIDI interface ideal for hobbyists, musicians, and educators who need MIDI connectivity to control or record music with a computer.
The UM-ONE is a bus-powered 1-In/1-Out MIDI interface with LED indicators for MIDI I/O signal monitoring, and conveniently integrates both USB and MIDI cables for easy compatibility with today’s computer-based music systems. The UM-ONE features high-performance FPT processing, which provides superior MIDI transfer rates with lower latency and tighter clock timing.
The UM-ONE is perfect for hobbyists who want to connect a MIDI keyboard to a computer, and is also ideal for small studios or academic settings where only one MIDI device will be connected in close proximity to the computer. In live performance settings, the UM-ONE can also be used to control a synth, drum machine, MIDI light set-up, master recording console, or any other MIDI device from a computer.
The UM-ONE is available now with a suggested retail price of $49.99 USD.
