I play keyboards, and make innovative electronic products which are useful to musicians. Hope you like my ideas.
There are some wireless MIDI interface in the market, so, what’s the different is OCTOPUS ?
The major difference of OCTOPUS is that it has TWO independent MIDI inputs (one wireless MIDI input and one wired MIDI input) that can be used simutaneously, the signals from the two MIDI inputs will merge and go to the MIDI output.
That means, OCTOPUS can act as a MIDI mixer. You can connect two MIDI input devices (e.g. a MIDI keyboard and a keytar) to OCTOPUS.
