Patchman Music is the authorized USA dealer for the wonderful Kenton MIDI USB Host MKII.
If you are looking for a way to connect your Akai EWI USB or Roland AE-10 / AE-10G Aerophone to your MIDI synths- here is your solution. The Kenton MIDI USB Host MKII will interface with the USB port on your EWI USB or AE-10 / AE-10G Aerophone and provide a MIDI OUT connection that you can connect to your MIDI synths so that you can control them with the wind controller. We here at Patchman Music have tested this device with the Akai EWI USB and the Roland AE-10 / AE-10G Aerophone wind controllers and they worked great with the Kenton MIDI USB Host MKII!
Your USB device is plugged into the USB MIDI Host mkII instead of into a computer. The Kenton MIDI HOST mk2 provides MIDI In & Out sockets for USB MIDI keyboards and controllers which have only a USB B type socket. It has a USB Host port (USB A type socket), a MIDI In and a MIDI Out (both 5 pin DIN). MIDI data received at the MIDI In socket will be sent to the USB device. MIDI data received from the USB device will be sent to the MIDI Out socket.
Akai EWI USB Users: Unlike some other seemingly similar devices, the Kenton USB Host MKII that we sell here at Patchman Music will also provide power to the Akai EWI USB. This is great and it makes our Kenton boxes a very elegant way to connect your Akai EWI-USB to your older legacy 5 pin MIDI devices.
Roland AE-10 / AE-10G users: Please note that the AE-10 / AE-10G is NOT a USB bus powered device, so these Kenton boxes cannot provide power to the Roland AE-10 / AE-10G wind controller. The AE-10 / AE-10G needs to be powered at all times from its built in batteries or via it AC wall adapter. The purpose of this Kenton box is to convert the AE-10 / AE-10G USB MIDI to a standard 5 pin MIDI Output.
This product is supplied with a multi-region power supply suitable for use in most countries. It is attractively finished in brushed aluminium with black screen print.
