MeeBlip Thru5 is a new USB bus-powered DIY MIDI splitter box with 1 MIDI input & 5 Outputs and free with every Geode purchase in the next 48 hours.
Meeblib, the company of Peter Kirn (CDM) and James Grahame (blipsonic inc.) has today released thru5, a new 5-port MIDI splitter (thru box) as a DIY Kit. The idea is simple but effective. It copies MIDI messages received at the MIDI In and passes them to the five MIDI Outs.
Each output is processed through a low-latency active circuit. Thru5 is DIY but not completely. The kit comes with all the tricky components pre-installed. You simply need to solder the MIDI and USB jacks.
- Easy-to-build kit; some through-hole soldering required.
- Passes MIDI data from the MIDI IN to five MIDI OUT jacks.
- Low latency hardware MIDI pass-through.
- Runs on 5V Power from a computer USB port or USB wall wart (power only, does not pass data).
- Opto-isolated MIDI IN to eliminate ground loops.
- Individual active signal processing for each MIDI OUT.
- Size: 125 x 40 x 25 mm (4.9″ x 1.6″ x 1″), weight: 72 g (2.5 oz).
MeeBlip thru5 is available now for $19.95 USD for a limited time (regularly $24.95 USD). It is also included for free with all Geode Synthesizer sale (with free shipping) in a special intro sale for 48 hours.
