I need to buy a USB MIDI interface to connect some of my older gear to my computer for the purpose of MIDI sequencing. I have a M-Audio Uno and it works fine in connecting my Edirol SD-80 to my PC (Cakewalk Home Studio). But when I try to go out of the MIDI thru (Out 2) of the SD-80 and connect it to the MIDI in of my Korg Trinity, the Trinity does not receive any MIDI note data. So, I figure I must need a USB MIDI interface unit that has more outputs to connect my older units like the Trinity, Ensoniq ASR10 and Emu Proteus 2000. Any suggestions?

I use an M-Audio Midisport 2x4, works fine for me. They have a Midisport 4x4 and other configurations with more MIDI I/Os
My latest piece: for orchestra (recorded at Blackheath Halls, London, March 2006, 2mins long)

I've used a Midisport USB 2x2 now on 3 different DAWs (2 desktops, 1 laptop).

Bulletproof. Zero problems.
