Don’t be fooled by it’s compact appearance (yes – we have sort of a legacy in stealth utilities!): The RK-005 is a small device which can combine all layers of the MIDI spectrum… and beyond!
The RK-005 is the most complete Standalone USB Host out there: Integrate those small and handy USB MIDI devices to your traditional MIDI gear and leave your computer at peace. And it’s not just a bridge to DIN5 MIDI: The RK-005 supports USB-Hubs too so you can interconnect multiple USB devices with it without using MIDI cables at all.
And where other USB-Hosts do host-only, the RK-005 is also a Class Compliant MIDI device. This means if you connect the RK-005 to a computer, phone or tablet: It will give you a fast and solid MIDI In and Out from your DAW. Even simultaneously. The RK-005 is a 2-in-1 device!
If you’re also looking to connect other gear which only have gate triggers to listen to: The RK-005 has an on-board MIDI clock to Gate converter. You can sync up your Pocket Operators, Monotribes or Modular systems to your USB or DAW setup with ease.
With the RK-005 you can now create that compact live or production hardware setup: full control without the full table.
