Although MIDI is old, some would argue that it is outdated. I don't believe so, and for me it is useful to have USB to MIDI interface. I think that other people in the chip, lo-fi and DIY communities would tend to agree with me. From time to time, I hear people complain about how expensive a USB to MIDI interface is. For the most part, the cheap ones can be terrible in terms of lag, compatibility and whether all data is sent or received. However, I have had a reasonably good experience with this USB to MIDI interface. The price is around US$12 including international shipping. I am running it on a Mac OS X 10.4 MacBook from a USB1.1 port hub, to which my audio interface is also connected. I have had no issues with this interface, but of course I can't guarantee that you won't have issues with your machine.
