MIDI I/O Setup
The MIDI I/O Setup utility lets you configure the stand-alone routing for MIDI I/O. Using matrix routing, you can route the MIDI signal from a specified MIDI Input port to any of the MIDI Output ports on the MIDI I/O.

To configure matrix routing: 1 Locate and launch the MIDI I/O Setup utility (the MIDI I/O Setup is installed when you install the MIDI I/O driver).
