Any good MIDI-interface?

    Well... I'm very happy with my ANUS-DAW... and I've been using it mainly with software synths and software sampler... and audio of course.
    Now it's time to involve all my real synths and drum machines. But my midi-interface ( MidiSport 2x2) is not enough, I need more in/outs.(4x4 or 8x8)

    So I need some advice here... what should I get?
    I'm not that happy with my Midisport... it feels like it's not that tight.

    Since I mainly work with Cubase SX I've been told to go for the Steinberg "Midex8" since it has got some special "tight"-system ( LDB ??) that Cubase did support. Would that be a good choice?
    Or do you have any better ideas?
    Is USB-Midi interface the way to go?
    Or maybe a "tight" Midi-interface is impossible to make? :D
    I'd be grateful for any help here.

    the midex8 would probably be the best choice if you want to take advantage of steinberg's linear time base protocol, the difference in timing "tightness" is audible, I guess any interface will work but you won't be able to use that feature...

    Thank you... that was all I needed to know.
    But when is the time for a faster MIDI-standard?

    Another alternative is the Edirol UM-880 which is an 8x8. I've used it successfully with Cakewalk for awhile now.
