"WARNING: Do NOT buy this Product"

Do not buy this product! It does not work well, M-Audio suggests other products, the drivers are unstable, and its the same price as other interfaces that do work. I'm returning mine as soon as I can.
No sound is made by this device, its a cable. It does however transmit notes, or at least it should if it worked. The UNO transmitted MIDI just fine to my Casio CTK-900 and was able to play all of its sounds. However the UNO was not able to work as an external keyboard for soft synths. When I tested it the UNO was transmitting random data from my keyboard and not notes.
The features are what you would expect from a cable, it plugs in fine, it installs. It would be fine if it worked.
Ease of Use
This product is easy to use, if it only worked. I spent about 2 hours figuring with settings on the keyboard and on my computer before I realized that even M-Audio's tech support people dont have an answer to my problems.
The product apparently causes cancer and you should wash your hands after handling it, and windows tells you not to install the drivers because they did not pass testing and are known to de-stabilize operating systems.
It doesn't work consistently... don't buy it. I'm going to return it tomorrow.
They have nice forums. There are no answers to the problems I have had. Look for yourself.
The Wow Factor
It is not very appealing at all. However in troubleshooting it I have a great deal of knowledge about MIDI that I wouldn't have otherwise.
