MIDI is common to many guitar/bass devices these days. Here at FREE THE TONE, we adopt MIDI devices in most of our custom pedalboards and rack systems.
There is usually no problem if you have only one MIDI receiving device in your system. However if your system has multiple MIDI devices and if all of the MIDI signal wirings are done serially, MIDI data transmission requires a certain amount of time which can result in a delay or a malfunction.
The MB-3 receives one stream of MIDI data and splits it into three to enable parallel data transmission. By receiving MIDI data directly from the MB-3, your devices can avoid various problems that can occur if it is serially connected.
The wave shape of the MIDI signal fed into the MB-3 is corrected by its internal logic circuit, preventing transmission errors due to deteriorated data wave shape.
