    Perfect MIDI converter for USB

    posted by PetrStk on 02/11/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Small converter with cables long enough. Two LEDs to signalize it's connected properly (POWER LED) and that data transmit occurs (DATA LED). Works perfectly in Ubuntu Linux using the stock ch341 kernel module and various MIDI programs.
    Cons:
    None I can think of. This device works as intended, period.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It's a plug&play thing. Small, relatively cheap, very simple to use. Well built. The temperature reported is very precise, down to hundredths of degrees Celsius (like 24.48C).
    Cons:
    The reported temperature has an offset by 3-4 degrees so you need to calibrate it first with another thermometer. Interestingly...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week
