Kenton announces availability of the MERGE-8

Featuring a 32-bit ARM microcontroller for super-fast MIDI processing, MERGE-8 can handle large amounts of data.

Following its introduction at NAMM 2017, MIDI solutions specialist Kenton has announced the availability of its new MERGE-8.

The eight-input intelligent MIDI merge unit is designed, built, and assembled in the UK and is the latest addition to Kenton’s well-known line of MIDI utilities.

MERGE-8 can work in two modes: first is a full eight-into-two merge, where all MIDI data received across the eight input ports is merged into two outputs (with both ports outputting the same data); second is a split mode, with two completely independent four-into-one merges.

Mode is set with a recessed push button and indicated with a bicolour LED. MERGE-8 stores this setting in EEPROM and starts up in whichever state it was last in.

Featuring a 32-bit ARM microcontroller for super-fast MIDI processing, MERGE-8 can handle large amounts of data. It is intelligent in that it applies merging rules to process the MIDI data from the inputs in the optimal way.

MERGE-8 is housed in a robust brushed aluminium case, measuring 155 x 80 x 35mm and weighing just 220g. The device is also able to withstand the knocks of a life on the road as part of a large keyboard rig, yet it is just as at home in the studio.

MERGE-8 can be purchased from dealers or directly from Kenton for £112.50.
