THE NUMBER ONE GAFF WITH MIDI CONNECTIONS is connecting IN to IN and OUT to OUT (although this seems sensible at first!). This is a very common mistake and an absolute classic! Just make sure you connect IN-OUT and OUT-IN......much as you would connect the power inlet on a device to a power outlet on a wall (you don't go linking all your plug sockets together do you?!).
It is advised to run the UX-16's driver/utility disk (provided with the UX-16) BEFORE plugging the UX-16 into the USB port, although the drivers for Windows 7 were not on the disk, but a link was provided to download the latest drivers, and everything went smooth as silk and worked perfectly. Remember also, as already stated here, to plug the OUT cable of the UX-16 into the IN port of your Keyboard/Organ/Etc, and the IN cable of the UX-16 to the OUT port of the instrument you're using. Opposites attract...
All in all a great product and ideal for budding home-musicians and gigging pros alike.
The main (good) thing is that there is no noticeable delay at all. I've heard that some cheaper products have quite large delays.
The instructions for installation were some of the most confusing I've seen, and seem to contradict themselves. But if you just ignore it all, plug the device in, put the CD in and get windows to search for the drivers it works fine. This is for Vista (it may be different for other systems).
The IN and OUT "labels" are very hard to read on the plugs.
But like I said, it works very well, and works fast.
As other reviewers have stated I had to use the supplied CD to help me go find the Windows 7 64 bit driver via the web links on the CD. The manual tells you not to plug in the device before installing the driver but the driver installation then said it found no device present and could not install! I was therefore not sure whether this had installed OK the first time so I repeated the install with the device connected just in case. A bit confusing but all seems to have worked out OK for me without too much hassle. You can check if the driver has installed via Control Panel where it sets up its own configuration utility.
The device needs no separate power it is powered through the USB bus.
All I would add is that midi-music is clearly something quite advanced and therefore I will need a lot of time and patience to begin to get best use out of this device and the software I have got! That's not the device's fault!
On the debit side, the markings on the input & output plugs are extremely difficult to read: there's little point in a 'stylish' finish if non-one can read the embossed markings. Tracing them over with a black dry marker has been some improvement but it's a daft design fault in an otherwise useful unit.

Works on Sibelius but not on Musescore - for me anyway. Like others I went for a cheaper cable first which didn't work but even so jumping from £5 to £50 seems very pricey.Published 5 months ago by Jim0734
Don't buy this. Kept getting problems with my piano sounding out a note in the middle of my recordings, it kept thinking my pedal was a note too. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Lola
Great buy. Works really well.
The only issue is that to get it work, you have to plug it in the wrong wway round. Strange!
I needed to interface my 20+ year old Clavinova P-100 to my lappie and decided not to trust the cheaper options. Maybe I didn't need to, but this baby works perfectly. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Michael May
Works exactly as promised. Driver easy to install. I am using it on Windows 7.Published 16 months ago by Paul Belino
Works well enough but almost impossible to read which is MIDI in and out; seems a silly design fault, it's one of the few design features which matters.Published 23 months ago by R. Lawson
