It's still worth knowing about the others. Especially since yours wouldn't be the best solution in all cases. Some people's computers are desktops rather than laptops, and may not be conveniently located for their music work. Or even if they have a laptop, they may not want to have to get/connect/place it every time they use the keyboards. Or some people may be looking for a solution for gigging/busking and may not want to bring a computer for that. Heck, some people don't even have computers, or at least ones that are exclusively their own to use.Like I said. Mine was the CHEAPEST and SIMPLEST solution.
Just noting that they can be as little as about $50; and that an iPhone similarly works only with class compliant devices.I simply presume the original poster does have a computer or tablet or iphone
Judging by the gear he's posting about I'd assume he wouldn't want to pay an extra $100 for a solution that only works with class compliant devices.
You buy a box for $60 or $70, (not $50)
and you still have to shell out another $25 for cables regardless.
Chances are everybody with a computer already owns the printer cable and the hub anyway.
Still the cheapest if you are willing to invest a little sweat equity into getting the software running.
The cable I linked to on Amazon (a perfectly reasonable place to shop for cables!) is a name brand (Hosa), albeit a "value" brand. Not top of the line, but not a no-name either. But if you prefer, here's a Roland at the same $8 price.I don't know where you shop for cables, but I find cheaper is not always better.
You can spend hours trying to diagnose a system problem and the problem turns out to be a Dollar Store Cable
I tend to stick to name brands.
