The FORE USB was on our recommended list for MIDI Interfaces from April 2020 until September 2022 when it had been out-ranked by other interfaces.

Overview

This is a generic-looking ‘Amazon only’ product and brand that’s been racking up genuinely good reviews since 2017.

There are other midi interfaces that look very similar to this available on Amazon and in all likelihood, the ‘FORE’ brand is simply printed on by the Chinese manufacturer for the re-seller. But people find it works well and they provide pretty good support for their product.

The interface is a simple Y configuration with the usual 1 MIDI In / 1 MIDI Out cable and a USB connection. It features a flashing indicator light and comes in various colors.

Being class-compliant, it doesn’t require drivers and most users find it to be ‘plug and play’.

The seller warns that the device does not transmit system exclusive messages.
