Thank you for purchasing the M-Audio USB MIDISPORT Uno interface. Uno is a class-compliant* 1-in/1-out MIDI interface for USB-equipped PC and
Macintosh computers. Uno’s Universal Serial Bus (USB) connection assures reliable and speedy transfer of MIDI data to and from the computer. The
interface is portable, self-powered, and can be conveniently attached to your computer’s USB port without requiring computer disassembly or an
external power supply. Uno’s sturdy package also includes integrated USB and MIDI cables, eliminating the need for carrying around separate cabling.
Expansion is also easy—if you need additional MIDI ports, simply add more Uno interfaces. Follow the installation instructions in this manual and you
will be up and running in no time.
PLEASE DO NOT connect the Uno to your computer until you have reviewed the installation instructions for your operating system.
* NOTE: Only the latest hardware revision of the Uno is class-compliant and will work under Windows XP or Mac OS X without a driver. If you own an
earlier version of the Uno that is not class-compliant (i.e., it does not install automatically), you’ll need to install the latest drivers from our website.
Uno USB/MIDI Interface offers the following features:
1-in/1-out MIDI via USB connection (16 x 16 MIDI channels)
Class-compliant* installation under Windows XP and Mac OS X (no drivers required)
Full-speed connection to either a PC or Apple computer equipped with a USB port
MIDI input and output LED indicators
Bus-powered—requires no external power supply
Compact and lightweight design for easy transport
Package Contents
The Uno package includes:

Feature View
USB cable and connector - Connect this cable to your host computer’s USB port.
USB LED - This LED pulses when Uno is powered and functioning.
MIDI in and MIDI out LEDs - These LEDs indicate MIDI input or output activity.
“TO MIDI OUT” connector - Connect this plug to your external instrument’s MIDI output port.

Note: If you become confused with the MIDI cabling, take a look at the arrows found on each MIDI plug. These arrows indicate which way the MIDI
data flows over that connector (i.e., whether the data is going from your keyboard to the computer or whether data is coming from the computer and
going into your MIDI device).

MIDI is the acronym for “Musical Instrument Digital Interface” and is the protocol used by MIDI keyboards and other devices (sound modules, sequencing
software, virtual instruments, etc.) to communicate with each other. Uno provides your computer with one MIDI input and one MIDI output port, each
supporting 16 MIDI channels.
Windows XP & Mac OS X Installation
If you are using Windows XP or Mac OS X, simply plug in your Uno to the computer’s USB port and you’re ready to go. Since Uno is class-compliant*,
it will work without requiring any additional drivers.
Installation for Advanced Windows XP Users
While Uno is class-compliant*, advanced Windows XP users who intend to use the Uno interface with more than one application at the same time (i.e.,
“multi-client” operation), plan to use long SysEx (system exclusive) commands or are using other class compliant USB devices with audio capabilities
simultaneously should install the special M-Audio drivers for optimal performance. These drivers can be installed by doing the following:
PLEASE NOTE: Do not connect Uno to your computer until the M-Audio driver files have been installed. The following instructions will indicate when
you should connect the interface to your computer.
Insert the MIDISPORT Series CD-ROM into your computer’s CD-ROM drive.
The computer will automatically display the interactive install screen shown in picture 1 . If your computer fails to launch the installer, manually
start the installer by clicking on Start > My Computer > MIDISPORT Series.
3. Select “MIDISPORT Uno” from the drop-down menu and click “Install.”
4. Follow the driver installer’s on-screen instructions.
5. At various points in this installation process, you may be notified that the driver being installed has not passed Windows Logo Testing. Click
“Continue Anyway” to proceed with the installation.
6. Click “Finish” once the installer has completed the installation.
7. Connect your Uno to an open USB port.
8. Windows will identify the interface and will ask if you want to search the Internet for a driver. Select “No, not this time” and press “Next” ( 2 ).
9. Windows will display a “Found New Hardware” Wizard ( 3 ).
10. Choose “Install software automatically” and click “Next.”
11. Once the Wizard has completed, click “Finish.”
12. Once the installation is complete, you will see a message stating, “Your new hardware is installed and ready to use.”

Setting Up Your MIDI Studio
A typical MIDI system setup might include your Uno, a computer with MIDI sequencing software, a MIDI controller keyboard, and a MIDI-compatible
sound module. This setup is illustrated below:
to MIDI in
MIDI Sound Module
to MIDI out
MIDI Keyboard
In the set-up described above, Uno is being used to route MIDI data between the controller keyboard, the sound module, and the computer. To set up
the Uno in this way:
Connect Uno to your computer via the USB cable.
Connect the “To MIDI Out” cable to your keyboard’s MIDI Out port.
Connect the other cable labeled “To MIDI In” to the MIDI In jack of your sound module.
Important note: Uno is not a MIDI THRU device and as such, MIDI data received at Uno’s MIDI in port can never be sent directly to the MIDI out
plug of the Uno. However, data received at the MIDI In can be transmitted from the computer to the MIDI Out of your Uno.
Caution: Electrostatic discharges, electrical spikes, and Radio Frequency (RF) interference may cause Uno to malfunction. In such cases, unplug
the unit, wait a few moments, and reconnect it to restore normal operation.
