The MIDI Solutions Merger is a 2-in 2-out MIDI Merger, merging all MIDI messages appearing at its two MIDI inputs to its two MIDI outputs. All MIDI message types are merged, including System Exclusive, MIDI Clock, and MIDI Time Code messages. A fast merging algorithm ensures that all MIDI data is processed accurately with the minimal possible delay.

The Merger is MIDI-powered, and requires no batteries or power supply to operate with most MIDI products. A MIDI indicator LED lights up when the product is powered and flashes when MIDI data passes through it.

MIDI Solutions MultiVoltage products are compatible with products that follow both the 5V and 3.3V MIDI specifications.

It's a simple gadget that does a simple job; merge the MIDI Out data from 2 MIDI devices to the MIDI In on a single MIDI device. But the MIDI Merger I received had 2 added bonuses. It was different than the one pictured because it has since been upgraded to include a dual 3.3V and 5 V power input on MIDI In 1. This means better compatibility with MIDI devices that only put out 3.3V. MIDI Solutions has an extensive FAQ that explains this new feature. Also, it now has a 2nd MIDI Output so you can send the merged MIDI Data to a 2nd MIDI sound source or computer. I use mine with a Korg-MPK 130 MIDI pedal and an M-Audio 49 key controller and it powered on no problem with the Korg MPK supplying power to the device via its MIDI Input 1. Some may question the lack of a power supply, but the manufacturer explains that adding a power supply would cause a ground loop, and most MIDI gadgets will supply power so there's really no need. Unlike the cheap home-built MIDI Merger I purchased from ebay about 6 months ago, the MIDI Solutions merger worked perfectly. No missed notes, no delays, no locked notes. It is made of plastic but seems well-built and durable. The blue LED indicator was clearly visible but not too bright. The price seems a bit high for such a simple device (why I am giving it a score of 4 for Value and Overall) but there really aren't any good alternatives around and it does its job well. And thanks to L&M at London South for getting the device shipped to their store for pickup within 2 days!

This is a no brainer. A small box that does exactly what it is supposed to do. No more, no less. Brilliant.
