The i2M musicport is the new way to connect your musical instruments to your computer. It combines a high-impedance audio interface that won't suck the tone from your instrument, with very fast, low-latency, monophonic MIDI conversion that doesn't require special pickups to be mounted onto your instrument.Designed particularly for guitar and bass, it works with most musical instruments including the human voice. Now you can record great-sounding tracks and play synthesizers and samplers how you have always wanted to: by using your favorite instrument.Using class-compliant USB drivers built into your computer's operating system, and with no special instrument set up required, the i2M musicport offers a true plug-and-play experience for all musicians.

A little bit bigger than a USB key, the Sonuus i2M serves as both a monophonic pitch-to-midi converter over USB & a low latency audio input device for your computer. What's not generally known is that the i2M functions as such with 3rd & 4th gen iPod Touches, iPhones, & iPads 1 & 2, & is compatible with any app that supports audio & midi via the Camera Kit USB docking adaptor! I've used it successfully with Distort+Delay, Filtatron, Pocket Amp, CrystalSynthXT, miniSynth PRO & NanoStudio amongst others. It's a great addition/alternative to the iRig interface. if you have an iPad & play guitar, appropriately mic'd monophonic horn, or string instrument, check Sonuus i2M out-it's flat out great!

I can't say enough good things about this little piece of wizardry. It's truly an amazing device. It's beautifully designed and implemented (I'm a designer, so my appreciation is doubled.) I won't go into all the features as that can be found elsewhere, but I will say that the i2M Musicport is a superb combination of physical hardware and software and delivers on all it's promised features.

The device itself is about as small as it can possibly be and still do the job. It's scarcely larger than the 1/8" jack from the guitar. The glowing LED (green and orange) logo on the i2M is ethereal and beautiful in it's own right. The physical interface (which allows 4 MIDI configuration) is extremely easy to use (you can even use MIDI program changes to change the configuration if you your hands are occupied with fretting and picking.)

The supporting software is as beautifully designed as the hardware. It works flawlessly for setting up the four configuration schemes available and for setting up the device in general. It's so cool that you can split your fretboard and send bass MIDI signals on one channel and lead MIDI on another. Just very, very cool stuff.

If you are a guitarist and are interested in controlling MIDI instruments you MUST get the i2M! I will say that although you can plug and play and the response is immediate and gratifying, to truly get maximum utility from the i2M, you need to spend time and tweak the settings to your own playing style. Also, to get the most from the i2M, you will need to learn how to control the signal generated from your strings by palm muting and pick action. But that's standard to achieve the best output from any musical instrument.

I use a Mac and the i2M is a great controller for GarageBand or Logic. It's so much fun to play a rock organ from a guitar!

In conclusion, if you are a guitarist with an interest in MIDI, get the i2M. You will have a blast!

What a blast to play with. You absolutely have to modify your technique and play very accurately but it works very well.
I use Sonar X1 as my DAW platform and I've found that it is easier to set up with some softsynths than others but it works as advertised. I found that really emphazing my vibrato while playing through string synths makes it sound almost exactly like a violin or cello or whatever. Mainly purchased it for laying down bass tracks for covers and originals and again- you have to adjust your playing quite a bit but once you get the hang of it it's a lot of fun. Playing a trumpet or a trombone on your guitar is just plain hilarious. It may take me a month or two to get serious with it because experimenting with it has me laughing like a mad scientist!

It's compact, does both monophonic midi and audio and comes with a cool bit of software to configure the midi control parameters (like pitch-bend on/off and transposition). Works great with garageband - you can plug in your guitar and easily toggle between a "virtual" alto sax (single notes) with MIDI to a guitar amp model that uses your pickups. Totally rad! Also, if you have a 1/4" mic, you're set for vocals and whatever else. This is a gem of function and simplicity, especially when the only other "midi-to-guitar" product out there is the Roland set up that goes for just about 10 times the price of this little guy.

Not only is this little device fast and accurate at audio-to-MIDI conversion, the underlying firmware and software used to program it have improved and evolved since its intro. I love small companies like Sonuus that make a great product, and then listen to their customers to keep making the product better via regular, free updates. The big corporate companies shove their stuff out there, and then ignore the users and the requests.

While I'm sure the i2M be used mostly by guitarists, I use it in live performance with a mic'ed alto saxophone; pumping the resulting MIDI output into varying plug-ins to create alternative instruments, and even entire horn sections. Yeah, the software will even output modally-scaled harmonies on different MIDI channels. WTF?!! This is crazy!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!

The price is right, it's plug 'n' play, it looks kinda cool. But it doesn't actually work. When I say "doesn't work" it functionally operates, but the time lag is hideous and immediately one can tell that no matter how one adjusts playing style, sound, and instrument settings, it will never be a performance item. You could get away with recording maybe, but if you are keen enough to persevere, I would recommend either a more professional standard product, or just switch to a synth.
