USB/MIDI Audio Interface
One of the XD80USB’s coolest features is the built-in USB/MIDI interface, which allows you to connect to your computer and external MIDI sound modules. This incredible functionality lets you tap into your virtual instruments, drum software and DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) recording software (not included). Such flexibility opens tremendous opportunities for file sharing with your band mates – especially when you need to collaborate on songwriting and recording projects. It also gives you access to the huge range of sounds available from your MIDI devices, putting a vast library of sounds at your fingertips.
The Brain Behind the Sound
Years of engineering went into the design of the XD80USB’s incredible HDS240USB sound module. Once the sounds were created and tweaked, we turned our attention to making the sound module’s user interface extremely flexible, functional, and most importantly – easy to use. All controls are laid out in a very logical format, and stepping through setup parameters is highly intuitive, so you can spend less time reading a manual – and more time playing!
