Hi there. I am trying to find something that, in my head, sounded really simple. Turns out that it is a lot more complicated so let’s see if you can help. I am using an AKAI APC MINI. This is a box standard midi usb controller. I am using it to control a video media server. The APPC MINI connects to the media server via a usb cable and that is that, job done. Now the problem is that the video media server is backstage and I need to be front of house. Since I am using a fancy kvm extender for a keyboard and a monitor I thought that if I connected the tablet to the extender it would just work. It didn’t.
I started looking for something that converts the midi usb signal into something Ethernet, travels through a couple of switches and then comes out to another adapter that will connect to the media server via usb. Turns out that this is complicated…
Do you have any suggestions? Is it at all possible to do what I want to do?
