New at NAMM is the mLAN16E, an expansion board for Yamaha's Motif ES Music Production Synthesizer.
The mLAN16E provides interface hardware and connections required to link the Motif ES to an mLAN network, Yamaha's high performance music networking protocol. This connection--via a IEEE 1394 "Firewire" cable--transforms the Motif ES into a 16-channel, 24-bit/96kHz computer audio and MIDI interface, and will also allow the Motif ES to interface with other mLAN products (such as the Yamaha 01X).
The mLAN16E includes the mLAN Patchbay application software for convenient audio and MIDI signal routing on both Macintosh and Windows XP-based systems. The mLAN16E is currently available at an MSRP of $399.
