iConnectMIDI4+ is the latest addition to iConnectivity's available arsenal of innovative music technologies, made here in Canada. Last year, while attending the ASTech Foundation Awards Gala, which recognizes Alberta's brightest innovators, I was pleasantly surprised to see that iConnectivity was selected as one of its honourees. Indeed, the company has been making quite the buzz over the last few years with its flagship iConnectMIDI line, picking up some "Best in Show" awards and major accolades from reputable media outlets and industry professionals. So what is iConnectMIDI4+? Well, again, that's implied in the name by the little "+" sign at the end. That's where the fun begins. iConnectMIDI4+ is, as one of the company's marketing taglines dubs it, a "hybrid, networkable multi-host" MIDI interface that bridges and links MIDI and audio between multiple computing devices. It connects and is compatible with Mac, PC, and iOS devices. The multi-host capabilities allow you to connect any combination of up to three Mac, PC, and iOS devices "simultaneously" and even more via a network if you choose to do so. And on top of that, it's totally plug-and-play, with no additional drivers needed. It's remarkably simple operation for a rather sophisticated piece of equipment.
