Today we are taking a look at the PUC from Zivix, the latest means for wirelessly connecting your MIDI device to pretty much any iOS device!
As technology advances, it’s easy to understand and appreciate that other fields would advance as well. A few examples could be the automotive industry, or the medical field, but most of all, the music industry. It’s interesting, because not only have we seen the progression of the way music is recorded, but we are also seeing the progression of industry as a whole with the development of new genres.
Sticking with the topic of the changes made to the recording industry, original music recordings, while considered to have an authentic sound it may also have lacked some clarity and appropriate mixing. Thus, music today easily takes advantage of new advances in technology in the way that crisp, clear sound is recorded. Today we have the privilege of seeing not only how that technology exists, but how it can exist in our own homes without breaking the bank. We are looking at Zivix and their latest MIDI interface, the PUC.
Starting with the intriguing box, the PUC arrives at our doorstep with a trapezoidal shaped, green and black box. Where, on the front, it features an actual representation of the PUC’s size.
On the backside of this intriguing packaging, we see more details about the PUC and it’s requirements.
When we open up the double clamshell-like packaging, we see the PUC presented on its platform. When we dig down underneath we find the supplied MIDI cable and 2 AA batteries.
The size and shape of the PUC is very much reminiscent of that of a hockey-puck, which features a glossy black finish on the top and bottom, with a tacky rubber strip surrounding the circumference of the PUC. The PUC is 3″ in diameter and is 1.25″ tall.
On the top of the PUC, there is a round button for powering the device on, as well as a small, green glowing, WiFi symbol.
