The MLA-1 is specifically designed for sending MIDI data over long distances with the capability to send information in excess of 1000 feet. Ideal for touring systems or permanent installations, MLA 's can be used in schools, recording and production facilities, boardrooms, live performances, convention centers, churches, theaters, stadiums, amusement parks and more.

When to Use a MIDI Line Amplifier:

MIDI is an increasingly important consideration for school installations, recording facilitates, stadiums, arenas, hotels, amusement parks, or other facilities where MIDI messages are required to be sent a long distance, or to multiple locations. However, the MIDI standard only permits a maximum cable run of less than 50 feet. The MLA-10 MIDI Line Amplifiers overcome this limitation by converting the MIDI signal into a balanced high-speed digital protocol that can travel over common twisted pair wire. The signal is converted back to MIDI through another MLA at the other end of the cable run.

MLA's are ideal for permanent installations or anywhere a longer MIDI cable run is required. In addition, the amplifiers can be easily networked to multiple locations such as from the master control room to a series of separate MIDI rooms in a recording studio, broadcast facility or educational lab. This allows a facility to de centralize the location of the MIDI devices in a MIDI system.

The MLA-1 can be wall panel mounted or used with a separate MIDI jack panel. This facilitates greater flexibility for installations where MLA-1 units can be in every required room. The MLA-1 can be powered by an MLA-10 or used alone with a separate power supply. Its compact size allows it to be mounted on or inside a wall or panel.
