It will automatically transmit the MIDI data for the keyboard currently being played.
Please note this is not a MIDI merge unit. Only one input can be used at a time. Otherwise MIDI notes may hang. It just automatically switches to whatever keyboard is now being used.
This midi device allows one of 3 MIDI inputs to control a MIDI slave. It's especially suited for people with say 3 master keyboards who record into a sequencer. Any one of the master keyboards can be used. One keyboard may have velocity sensitivity and the others not. One of the keyboards may have better performance controls than another. So it might be cool to use that for some recording.
Or you may play live and have a number of keyboard controllers at different parts of the stage. Again it does not merge, so only one input can be used at any time. How is it powered? Comes with 2.1 to USB lead to power from USB source (0.75m L) Can also use pretty much any 5-6v DC 'wallwart' type power transformer. With a 2.1 mm female plug. Positive on the Tip of the plug.
Plug in a master controller keyboards into the 3 MIDI IN jacks Connect MIDI leads from the Mindburner MIDI auto switch MIDI outputs to your slave units, computer DAW, sequencer MIDI inputs. Plug in said Power adapter/USB lead. Green LED lights Job done
Yes it would seem that this would be a great solution. Basically merge units usually require coding and a microcontroller to handle the task of merging MIDI data together successfully. A reasonably difficult task to do right. Honestly, this would be above my current design skills. Plus it may be quite expensive. This switcher may be quite a good compromise.
