I have my octatrack for a couple of weeks now. Really enjoy playing with the machine. I feel i understand it better and better each time i turn it on. The only thing I get a headache is playing with midi gear. just have two controllers (launch control xl and an usb midi keyboard) and one iPad. All is setup in ableton with a Focusrite interface.
But I i want to play without the computer. Just turn octa on and that’s it. So I am looking for a little midi interface i can use standalone. The iconnectivity midi 4+ seemed to be a often used solution by users here on elekronauts. Its about 200 euros. So my question. Is maybe the midi 2+ enough for my needs? It’s only 80 Euros an the only difference seemed to be less midi din inputs. Don’t plan to buy much gear in the near future. Maybe a notation circuit as synth and pad controller, a Nord drum 2 and maybe a mono synth. Most oof it works over usb.
So in total
3 synths (circuit, Norddrum 2, Monosynth)
1 Controller, (LCXL)
So, do i miss something? The little iconnect midi 2+ should be enough imo.
Are there maybe other (better) midi solutions for my setup?
Thanks for your help.
