Added bonus for setups combining MIDI and CopperLan
Once fitted with MIDI input or outputs (as virtual computer ports or physical interface boxes), a CopperLan network is de facto, a huge MIDI merging and patching unit.
Allocation of the MIDI flows is simplified by the ability to edit the virtual MIDI matrix from any device's front panel or in graphical form from a computer screen.
Note that a CopperLan device can select any MIDI channel entering the network as a data source, and similarly, that any CopperLan message can be sent to any MIDI channel on any MIDI output.
No practical limit on the number of MIDI devices connected
Handles existing MIDI interfaces attached to computers anywhere
Network acts as a MIDI patch-bay (mapping, merging & filtering)
Gives labeled connections
Full exchange capability between CopperLan and MIDI
Allows multiple simultaneous SYSEX flows
Allows multiple simultaneous MIDI clocks
Undifferentiated access to and from MIDI & CopperLan, within and outside a computer
Allows long distance cabling by benefiting from the CopperLan's Ethernet capability
