2 computers >>20 meters>> 1 mio4>> 1 physical DIN port midi output

hey,
can't find a clear answer to this or any nice workaround

the idea a Main/Backup system with 20 meters between the computers and the interface feeding 1 synth 
all this without any extra midi merger:

my questions:
1/ USB is the only way to share the same Mio device on two computers? true on osx and windows?
2/ in a sharing scenario : does both computers can use the same physical DIN ports? merging!
3/ if not what can be done with mio?

thanks

  • 20 meters is much longer than the USB specification allows for USB cables. You would probably be better off using RTP-MIDI over Ethernet.
  • thanks Rodney for your quick reply,

    okay but does the "sharing device" feature will also works through ethernet (eg : 2 mbp + 1 mio)?
    if not ...i have to buy 2 mio's  using 2x4 RTP-Midi  > lets say 4 midi mergers or controllable midi input switchers?

    thx
  • Sure, it's a network. You can connect anything to anything.
