Want another one? :mrgreen:

Yea...I have two of the MTPAV's, one parallel, and the other USB. If i'm not mistaken...there was a firmware update for the MTPAV's! I bought the USB version to replace the parallel one, but now since I use mostly VSTi's I've been getting away with one controller so the Fireface 800 has been enough. I also have some other MIDI dinosaurs in my studio, but I've been weaning myself off the old tech for the new! As a result, I don't have to troubleshoot as many connections. 8-)

Heck! I don't remember...(LOL) :) Ask the guys at MOTU...I'd also ask them about the pinout of the MTPAV (standard or proprietary) they should be able to get you up to speed!
