Need More MIDI Inputs?
When MRCC’s 6 routable DIN and TRS inputs just aren’t enough, the MRCC XpandR 4×1 adds 4x DIN Inputs (and a shared 3.5mm TRS), and 1x DIN Output (plus 3.5mm TRS thru).
Up to four XpandRs can be attached to the MRCC’s USB host ports. Inputs and the Output are routed the same way as MRCC’s USB host MIDI virtual ports. So it’s quick and easy to route XpandR’s ports; it’s like they were built-in to MRCC.
The XpandR is also a 4x Input, 1x Output USB class compliant MIDI interface for your PC, Mac, tablet, or what have you.
Or, use the Mode button to switch XpandR to a stand-alone 4 into 1 USB powered MIDI merger. In MIDI merger mode, the USB connector is only used to power the XpandR.
A two-color indicator shows Power, Merge mode, MIDI Input and MIDI Output activity.
The MRCC XpandR 4×1 comes housed in a robust and beautiful anodized aluminum enclosure with hand-silk screened user interface, like the MRCC. A USB cable and User Guide are included.

Remote 7 vs XpandR 4×1
A: The MRCC Remote 7 adds 5 additional routable outputs to MRCC. These outputs are already built into MRCC. One Remote 7 per MRCC.
XpandR adds 4x DIN inputs, and one DIN output at the expense of an MRCC USB MIDI host port. Up to four XpandR’s per MRCC, using MRCC’s available USB host ports.
A: The Remote 7 comes with a 10M (33 foot) long Ethernet cable. The maximum cable length is about 50 feet (using short MIDI cables).
Remote 7 is routed with the MRCC “remote routing” button. Hold the remote routing button, then select the outputs to route to.
XpandR is routed using the MRCC USB host routing buttons. Select one of the four inputs, then select outputs.
