Multiple input/output interface like a MIDISport 2x2 or 4x4. That is if you are using standard MIDI cables. Not sure how multiple devices play via USB Bub if all USB connections. You could also use MIDI Thru but not sure how that would all be configured. My devices are USB/MIDI cables (Korg M50) so I currently have the M50 to my Motu 828Mk II via MIDI cables, LPD8 via USB. And are we talking Laptop/Desktop? Doesn't really matter except for possible power issues if USB. If they are USB go get a powered USB Hub.
