** With the release of version 1.9.8

*** USB MIDI is the support for class-compliant USB/MIDI interfaces. Supported on ETCnomad PC, ETCnomad Mac, and Eos Family devices running Windows 7 embedded. Contact Technical Services if you are unsure what embedded OS you have on your device. USB-MIDI also requires v2.6+ of software.

**** Newer models of Ti, Gio, and Progamming wing feature 4 DMX/RDM ports instead of 2 DMX/RDM and 2 MIDI ports. These devices would need a USB/MIDI interface added to support local MIDI. 

It is important to note that MIDI Notes cannot be received by a Net3 Show Control Gateway. MIDI Notes also requires v2.6+ of software.

All Eos Family devices can send and receive OSC when running v2.3+ of software.
