MOTU MIDI Timepiece AV Interface USB

8×8 MIDI Interface/Synchronizer/Patchbay/Merger (Mac)
Mark of the Unicorn introduces the MIDI Timepiece AV. Combine MIDI with ADATs, ProTools, or video. The MIDI Timepiece AV takes MOTU’s world-renowned MIDI Time Piece II and adds synchronization that you really need, like video genlock, ADAT sync, and word clock sync. Even Digidesign superclock.

Slave ADATs, Digidesign hardware, or word-clock compatible devices to SMTPE and video. Drive your ADATs from your sequencer without an Alesis BRC. Or control everything from an MMC controller like JL Cooper’s CuePoint. The MTP AV pulls it all together for stable, centralized, hassle-free synchronization and MIDI networking. For Macintosh and stand-alone setups.

The MIDI Time Piece AV provides 8 discrete MIDI cables (in and out) for your computer. This allows you to use 128 independent MIDI channels. To expand beyond this, you can network up to 4 MTPs for a total of 512 MIDI channels. You can even connect 2 computers to an MTP AV network.

The MTP AV is also an 8×8 merger and router. You can merge any combinations of the 8 inputs simultaneously to any combination of the 8 outputs. Because the MTP AV’s internal memory can be programmed from the front panel,the MTP AV is the perfect choice for live performance applications where fast and flexible MIDI patching is essential. You can take the MTP AV on the road because it can operate with or without a computer. The MTP AV can be set to change scenes in response to patch changes, allowing remote control from any MIDI controller.
