Music hardware: Devices which provide ports for connecting MIDI gear to a computer
A MIDI interface allows a computer system to interact with MIDI equipment. MIDI interfaces can either be built into sound modules and sound cards, allowing the user to connect MIDI gear straight to the card, or they can come as seperate modules that normally connect to the computer system via USB. As standard, a MIDI interface called MPU-401 (MIDI Processing Unit) is built into most sound card and most on board sound devices. Different models of MIDI interaces come with different numbers of MIDI ports; some come with 1 in and 1 out, others 2 in and 2 out, 4 in 4 out and so on.
Many products in the categories Audio Interfaces and Music Keyboards also incorporate MIDI interface functionality.
