I'm looking to purchase a 2x2 or 4x4 MIDI interface for a keyboard MIDI contrler, POD, Korg ES-1, and a Tascam US-428. 2 questions:

Any recommendations on best interface to work with a Mac G4 OS9.2?

Also, if I want to use my keyboard to trigger the ES-1 or other sound modules w/out having my computer on, do I need certain features to look for in the interface? Also, Can everything basically be routed to eachother through MIDI channels, or do I need a MIDI patchbay (I'm not quite sure what that even is). Basically, when I add hardware sound modules and software modules, I don't want to have to change any cables depending on what I'm doing. i want everything to run though the MIDI interface and to everything else connected to that interface. Is that how they all work?
