MeeBlip cubit duo: USB MIDI interface and MIDI thru
cubit duo is back in stock! Order before 13:00 CET Saturday 17 December for shipping this year.
Immediate shipping then resumes 2 January 2023 - while stocks last!
cubit duo is a stand-alone 4-port MIDI thru box (MIDI splitter) and a USB MIDI interface - all in one.
With a computer: connect USB and you get a high-performance 1x1 interface -- one input for playing, one computer MIDI output sent to the four OUT jacks simultaneously. That's four identical outputs with zero software lag, perfect for keeping your gear in sync.
With a mobile device: you get a MIDI interface you can use with apps.
* Requires USB port and cable, adapter for Lightning-equipped iOS devices.
With hardware-only setups: cubit duo works as a stand-alone thru box, connecting any MIDI input to four identical MIDI outputs.
cubit duo is lightweight and compact. It's also driverless and USB-powered. And the jacks are top-mounted to fit into tight spaces, even when cabled up.

Frequently asked questions
Why is this a 1x1 interface, if there are four output jacks?
The one port is mirrored across all four output jacks. That allows us to ensure there's no timing difference between the four output jacks.
Doesn't that mean all my gear will play the same notes?
MIDI has 16 channels, so if you want notes or patterns to be routed to a particular device, you can set that output channel.
What do you mean, "ultra-tight timing"?
If you want to get scientific, the output circuitry has a maximum propagation delay of 44 nanoseconds - that's billionths of a second. To us humans, it's basically zero lag.
How do I set this up with my computer? Do I need to install drivers or something?
No drivers are needed - you just plug and play. You'll see cubit go as an additional MIDI input and output, alongside any other MIDI and audio gear you have, inside your DAW's preferences.
What happened to cubit splitter and cubit go?
We're not kidding when we say it's two gadgets - it literally replaces the functionality of both our previous cubits, cubit splitter and cubit go. We've discontinued those products, because this one does it all. (We'll continue to support them, though - we still use ours!)
