Have you ever tried connecting your USB MIDI controller to your DIN/TRS MIDI device?
Pair USB MIDI controllers with all MIDI devices. Without cables. Even without computers.
Singapore • July 1, 2021 — CME Pro - the people behind WIDI Bluetooth MIDI technology - presents the missing link between USB MIDI and traditional DIN/TRS MIDI with the latest edition to the WIDI family: WIDI Uhost!
At present, many manufacturers make USB MIDI their main or even their only means of connection. Although bus-powered USB MIDI controllers offer a great solution, they also deliver new challenges for MIDI enthusiasts. The connectivity between USB MIDI and DIN/TRS MIDI hardware has been a challenge since day one.
With the new WIDI Uhost, CME brings back the universal role of the MIDI protocol allowing you to connect all MIDI devices wirelessly.
CME's WIDI products ensure that all MIDI instruments remain compatible with even the earliest MIDI hardware. Without the need for complex scripting or esoteric cabling and routing. It doesn't matter if it's USB MIDI, your mobile device, your guitar pedal, or your vintage synth.
WIDI has got you covered. Just plug, pair and play!
Finally you can control your collection of sound modules from that single USB master keyboard. Without cables. Even without computers or mobile devices. To take it a step further, with wireless MIDI groups you can even control up to 4 MIDI devices from one single USB MIDI controller. Even if it is bus-powered!
Simply set up your wireless MIDI group via the user-friendly WIDI app (Android/iOS) and save that group to the default memory of your WIDI devices. Upon start up, that group will pair automatically following your personal preferences. And without any hassle you can run multiple groups simultaneously.
Imagine where this technology can take you...
WIDI Uhost is now available as pre-order for only US$ 34.50 instead of US$ 69!
Only directly available from the manufacturer for a limited time with 50% discount.
