I use an Opcode 64X midi interface to
control my messages, though maybe you don't need what I do. It has 4 ins
& 6 outs and technically controls 72 channels. Uses Serial port,
though I think USB is available now. Also with the Opcode there's one
selection for my studio and another for my live performance rig, which
seamlessly ties together: DrumKAT Turbo, midi controller keyboard, Roland
R-8, Alesis QSR synth, Microverb 4, and Topaz midi Light Controllers.
Anything can be controlled from anywhere. example: knobs on front of
turned with controller wheels on keyboard or in DrumKAT. With my set up,
no cords are ever moved, and messages go only to appropriate places.
(DrumKAT and keyboard interfaces contribute to this also) Recording in
your studio, you'd have 5 ports instead of one, to make controlling
individual instruments and definitions easier.
