M8U XL offers maximum MIDI connectivity with 8 independent MIDI inputs and 8 independent MIDI outputs, providing 128 MIDI channels - all via a single USB 2.0 (or USB 1.1) connection to your PC or Mac.

The 1U sized replacement for M8U provides 1 MIDI input and 1 MIDI output on the front for easy access, next to status LEDs for all MIDI I/O ports. All the the other MIDI I/O connectors are on the backside of the unit.

Like with all current MIDI interfaces from ESI, M8U XL shows the real meaning of Plug-n-Play as the installation could not be more simple: under Windows s WinXP, Windows vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Mac OS X, no driver installation is required.You simply plug-in the unit and the device with all MIDI I/O port will be detected automatically and can be used immediately. The unit is fully css compliant, making it compatible with various other operating systems like various Linux distributions.

If you need more than 8 MIDI in and outputs simultaneously, you can even use two M8U XL on the same computer at the same time. Using the optional downloadable driver, M8U XL becomes multi client capable, allowing you to use its MIDI I/O ports in several applications simultaneously.
