If you're serious about digital audio, you shouldn't settle for anything less than a truly professional audio interface.... and now with MiaMIDI you don't have to. Echo Mia MIDI Sound Card offers a pair of balanced 1/4 inch analog inputs and outputs and operates at the +4dBu levels used by pro-audio gear. It combines this with 24-bit/96kHz converters and 106 dB of dynamic range for the quality your recordings deserve. Also included is an S/PDIF digital audio interface for connecting to other digital audio equipment, and MIDI input/output jacks on a custom molded cable.

A unique feature of Echo Mia MIDI Sound Card is the use of "virtual" outputs. MiaMIDI appears to software as if it has eight separate outputs, which are digitally mixed down to the physical outputs using MiaMIDI's "console" software and its on-board DSP. This makes Echo Mia MIDI Sound Card compatible with all popular multi-track software. And, with Echo's "multi-client" drivers, more than one application (such as an editor and software synth) can be playing back through MiaMIDI at the same time.

Please note that the MIDI functions of MiaMIDI only work under Windows ME/2000/XP(WDM) and Mac OS X.

About Echo Audio:
Echo Digital Audio is a successful research and development organization, licensing its technology to larger companies while at the same time supplying its popular products and supporting software to end-users and other manufacturers in the pro audio, broadcast, test and measurement, and audio simulation markets. Echo began designing and manufacturing computer audio products over 30 years ago. The Company was a pioneer in the computer-based voice technology field in the 1980's; Echo's audio peripherals and speech compression were standard products in the education and special needs markets. In the 1990's Echo went on to design and manufacture the first multi-track recording products for the PC and Mac markets. Echo has licensed its DSP-based audio technology to several leading audio and semiconductor companies including: Gibson Guitar, Analog Devices, HP, Sony, Motorola, Peavey, Mackie, Carvin, and Dolby Laboratories. All the Company's technology is created in-house where the small, focused staff pays meticulous attention to perfecting digital audio at each step of the design process. Echo's hardware and software engineers have worked together for years delivering solutions that would typically require significantly greater resources and personnel. Echo has a following of loyal, discriminating customers who share its vision of never settling for anything less than first-rate quality - especially at modest price points. They appreciate the unique attention that goes into every facet of product development, from the sturdy, sleek industrial design of the metal cases, to the rock solid software drivers. Echo is a closely-held company, located in Santa Barbara, California, with a management team that has been in place for nearly 30 years.
