Sonuus B2M - Universal Bass to MIDI Converter - Following on from the success of the G2M, the B2M brings affordable and reliable MIDI capability to bass guitar. We have been inundated with requests for the B2M and we are sure this will bring delight to bassists the world-over. With ultra-low-latency, and unmatched affordability, the B2M breaks new ground in MIDI performance for bass players -- it will even track a low B (which is only 30Hz)!

Key Features

•Any electric bass guitar can be used as a solo MIDI controller.

•No instrument modifications or special pickups required.

•Robust note detection - minimises wrong notes.

•Very low latency & very fast tracking.

•Fast, accurate MIDI pitch-bend or chromatic mode.

•Built-in tuner for standard bass guitar tuning (4–7 strings)

•Battery-powered with long battery life.

•Compact, lightweight and portable.

Universal Appeal

No modifications are required to your bass guitar; no special pickups to install; and nothing needs to be "stuck" onto your instrument. It works with all electric bass guitars without any setup or tweaking. The B2M™ universally appeals to all bassists from novices to seasoned professionals. Keenly priced to fit any budget, with the robust reliable performance expected by the finest stagemen. Incredibly simple to use:

1. Plug your bass guitar into BASS to power-up the B2M™

2. Enable CHROMATIC if you don't want to send pitch-bend information

3. Connect your MIDI device (or computer) to the MIDI OUT

4. Play notes on your bass and MIDI will be sent directly to your midi device!

Powered from a single PP3 battery, its long battery life combined with small size makes the B2M™ the ideal accessory to keep with your bass. Not only does it provide fast and precise tuning, but it also gives you instant MIDI capability for any electric bass guitar!

Robust Performance

Research has shown us that the most important aspect for pitch-to-MIDI conversion is reliable and reproducible triggering of notes. While low-latency is important, robust triggering is the key to usability - you can easily adapt to some latency, but you cannot adapt to random, spurious notes. By virtue of the unique, inherently robust technology used in the B2M™ you will be able to reliably generate accurate MIDI quickly and easily. Notes are generated exactly as played, and the nuances of your performance are captured with fast, accurate pitch-bend data. What's more, you also get very low latency!

Built-in Tuner

The built-in tuner uses our PULSAR™ tuning technology where the power LED doubles as a tuning indicator. This innovative tuner gives you a fast and accurate way to tune your bass guitar.

Instrument Thru

Featuring a high-impedance input circuit, the B2M™ won't sap your tone when using it "in-line" before your amp, or other effects pedals. You can then easily combine MIDI sounds with your normal bass sound for some exciting musical possibilities.

Improves Playing Technique

For optimal MIDI conversion, your playing needs to be clean and accurate. Accidental notes, resonating open strings and other sounds can often be converted into undesired MIDI notes. Often you don't hear these when playing the bass on it's own, but you can detect them easily when listening live to the generated MIDI. Striving to improve MIDI note accuracy, encourages clean picking and accurate fingering, with good control over non-sounding strings by damping them. Not only will your MIDI output be more accurate, your normal playing will sound clearer and more professional. It's like having a tutor sitting beside you giving you advice. It's also great fun!

Most of all, it's Fun!

When you try the B2M™ and generate some new sounds, the first thing that strikes you is how much fun it is. Unleash new creative inspiration and invigorate your soul.
































Sonuus i2M Musicport Hi-Z USB Audio Interface - £150



Instrument to MIDI Converter & Audio Interface



Sonuus i2M Musicport Hi-Z USB Audio Interface - For even faster MIDI performance to support Guitar and Bass.

The Sonuus i2M Musicport has extended MIDI features and configurability to satisfy the most demanding users, and a high-impedance audio interface that won’t suck the tone from your instrument, the i2M musicport™ is the new way to connect your musical instruments to your computer.

Designed particularly for guitar and bass, it works with most musical instruments including wind instruments and the human voice. Now you can record great-sounding tracks and play synthesizers and samplers how you have always wanted to: by using your favourite instrument.

Fashioned as an in-line ¼" jack-to-USB adapter, and about the size of a car key-fob, the i2M musicport™ has an ultra-compact design that can easily fit into your pocket. But this tiny box will redefine your musical possibilities.

Sonuus i2M Musicport Main Features:

  1. 16-bit, 44·1 kHz/48 kHz digital audio with Hi-Z input preamp.

  2. Any musical instrument can be used as a solo MIDI instrument.

  3. Optimised settings for: Guitar, 4-String Bass, 5-String Bass and Voice/Wind.

  4. No instrument modifications or special pickups required.

  5. Robust note detection — minimises wrong notes.

  6. Very low latency & ultra-fast tracking.

  7. Ultra-fast, accurate MIDI pitch-bend or chromatic mode.

  8. Ultra-compact, lightweight and portable.

  9. USB bus-powered (no power supply required).

  10. Future-proof upgradeable firmware.


Plug and Play



Using class-compliant USB drivers built into your computer’s operating system, and with no special instrument set up required, the i2M  musicport™ offers a true plug-and-play experience for all musicians.

Ultra-Fast Monophonic MIDI Conversion

Although latency is unavoidable when converting musical pitch into MIDI messages, the unique technology used in the i2M  musicport™ reduces this to a minimum. Not only is the MIDI conversion extremely fast, but accurate and robust. In fact, the pitch-bend detection of the i2M  musicport™ is more accurate than many popular guitar tuners!

Fine nuances of your playing are captured by the i2M  musicport™: note velocity is determined from how hard you play; and subtle vibrato and bends are converted to ultra-accurate pitch-bend messages with virtually no latency. Everything from the emotional subtlety of a ‘cello solo to the most extreme use of a guitar’s whammy bar are tracked flawlessly.

The optimised USB MIDI interface further minimises latency by intelligently managing data packets and avoiding the inherent delays in the traditional MIDI hardware protocol.

Flexible MIDI Architecture

The MIDI converter architecture is very flexible and powerful comprising six zones (splits), each with configurable pitch bend, MIDI channel, transpose and other parameters.


Hi-Z USB Audio Interface

The i2M  musicport™ features a very high-impedance (Hi-Z) audio input circuit. This means it won’t degrade the tone of your musical instruments, unlike typical “line” inputs — often a problem with electric guitars and dynamic microphones. The input pre-amp also has adjustable gain to accommodate a wide variety of musical instruments.

High quality 16-bit, 44·1 kHz (CD quality), and 48 kHz (DVD quality) digital audio can be recorded into your favourite audio application, or used live, for example through amp-simulators with great-sounding results.


An ASIO driver (only supported on Windows operating systems) is available to provide low latency audio and features the unique ability to use any other audio device (even other ASIO devices) as the output audio device so you can hear everything you do in real time.

Future-Proof (Upgradeable Firmware)

To support new features and to make it futureproof, the firmware (internal software) of the i2M musicport™ can be upgraded. This means you can invest with confidence in the i2M musicport™.

Pocket-Sized / Gigantic Possibilities


Fashioned as an in-line ¼"  jack-to-USB adapter, and about the size of a car key-fob, the i2M  musicport™ has an ultra-compact design that can easily fit into your pocket. But this tiny box will redefine your musical possibilities.

An invaluable composition tool, the i2M  musicport™ will let you access new sounds with ease, enable you to create tab and scores, provide you with new inspiration and let you have more fun than you thought possible.

Go on: Unlock your music!

Desktop Editor Software


The i2M  musicport™ features a very flexible and powerful MIDI converter architecture with 6 zones enabling MIDI to be sent on up to 6 MIDI channels simultaneously, with each zone being independently configurable. You can customise each of the operating modes for your particular requirements and exchange these settings with other i2M  musicport™ users.

Four presets can be stored on the i2M  musicport™ so you can switch between these without requiring the Desktop Editor Software. This software is available for Microsoft Windows, and OSX (10·5 and above).


Note: the i2M musicport™ doesn't include its own MIDI sounds, you must use suitable software (sampler, synthesizer, sound module etc) or your computer to record or to hear the MIDI output.
