Configured as a 4-into-8 programmable device, the ME30P will let you connect a MIDI instrument usually a ‘controlling’ unit like a keyboard or sequencer to each of its four Input Channels, and let you assign them to any of its eight Output Channels normally connected to ‘passive’ MIDI devices like expanders, digital delays, sampler modules etc.
If Akai can’t fit a standard Euro-connector then I would prefer a non-detachable cable, as the two-core Philishave-style lead that’s supplied could easily get lost – and there aren’t too many replacements kicking around the studios I know! Please have it changed Mr. Programming a new patch is a doddle too.
And when you wish to reconfigure your set-up to make another keyboard the Master instrument, you’re faced with unplugging all of your MIDI cables. This method, however, generally results in the dreaded ‘MIDI transmission delay’ whereby those instruments furthest down the chain are slightly out of sync with the others. It would obviously be a good idea if the various ME30P patches Banks could be called up and changed automatically in remote-control fashion, wouldn’t it?
As an aid to troubleshooting for ‘poor’ cable connections etc within your MIDI set-up, the ME30P also has a useful built-in checking facility. On the ME30P it is not possible to have more than a single Input connected to any one Output Channel, though you can have one Input split between a maximum of eight Outputs and therefore connected to eight different MIDI devices.

You certainly haven’t considered buying something that generates no sound of its own like a patchbay, you simply haven’t got the cash. Now you may be happy to put up with such things, but what’s required at the end of the day is a MIDI patchbay that will allow permanent connection of each device and make it possible for you to route MIDI signals from one unit to any other as desired but without replugging anything.
My only criticism concerns the ME30P mains lead. Bearing this in mind, it’s probably best to assign a MIDI sequencer or mother keyboard to perform this task, not a synthesizer, otherwise it will involve you in tedious copying of voice programs from one synth memory to another in order to overcome those odd occasions when you’ll want to switch ME30P patches but not wish to change the ‘sound’ on your synth.
