How big a MIDI chain is too big a MIDI chain? If after chaining a set of instruments together you can play a note, go away get a cup of tea, and come back to hear the note being played on the last instrument in the chain it may be a tad long. At this point you probably want to be able to send a signal to all of your instruments in parallel, and this is where the Unitor8 comes in… its an 8in 8out MIDI box which supports SMPTE timecode and connects to a MAC or Windows PC via firewire or USB. The company that made the Unitor8, eMagic was absorbed into Apple and no longer supports the Unitor8 for Windows.
