Midi Solutions R8 Relay Array

The MIDI Solutions R8 8-output MIDI-Controlled Relay Array contains eight relays which can be programmed to open or close in response to MIDI events.

Event types are programmable and include:
• Note
• Control Change
are used for a response time of less than 2ms. Relay contacts are rated at 500mA. Contacts are made available via connections to the tip and sleeve of 1/4" mono phone jacks.

The R8 is programmed by sending it MIDI System Exclusive messages (see FAQs - Programming). This can be done easily with the Programming Tools software for the F8 and R8. Once programmed, the R8's settings are retained even after power is removed. The R8 can be reprogrammed with new settings as often as needed.

The R8 is MIDI-powered, and requires no batteries or power supply to operate with most products (see FAQs - Power for more information). A MIDI indicator LED lights up when the product is powered and flashes when MIDI data passes through it.

5 of 5 R8 from Midi Solutions September 26, 2014
Reviewer: Adam  
The R8 is extremely easy to program. It doesn't require any power other than the MIDI connection, which saves you from having to fit another wall wart in to your power strip.  The R8 has 8 relays that can be programmed to open or close in response to pretty much any MIDI signal. You can also program it to close for an adjustable period of time and then open (or vice versa) in response to a single MIDI message.  Really and excellent easy to use product and worth every penny!
