At Go2Mac, we’ve long been big advocates of going wireless. Now we’ll be able to do it with music making. Midiman is showing off its new MidAir wireless MIDI system, which uses a 2.4 GHz DSS scheme with error corrections and internal AAA battery-power for wireless MIDI interfacing at distances of up to 50+ feet.

Among other announcements, Midiman/M-Audio also has two new USB interfaces, each compatible with Mac OS 9 and OS X. The USB Audio Duo functions as both a standalone mic preamp – A/D converter and USB audio interface. As a USB interface, the Duo offers 2 mic/line inputs with switchable line level, and S/PDIF digital coax I/O. Many readers have been asking for a basic portable audio interface; on paper I haven’t seen a better option. Stay tuned. Midiman also introduced the MIDISport Uno, 1×1 MIDI interface, which joins Midiman’s complete line of OS 9/X-compatible interfaces. Midiman remains one of the only companies offering OS X compatible audio and MIDI interfaces.
