Let’s Get Crowd Creative

WIDI MIDI

Crowd Creative Campaign

WIDI Master has been available since July 2020. One of the key factors of developing the WIDI technology has been you and your fellow musician friends. In this blog you can scroll through a wide variety of use cases and images as gathered from the community. This is what we call crowd creative. It is the next logical step after crowd creation. Let us explain this a tiny bit first and then move on to the fun part. 

First you had the chance to join the crowd creation campaign and validate the wireless MIDI solution as requested by the Bluetooth MIDI community. During this period close to 5,000 units were sold worldwide. Now we are getting close to the end of this crazy year of 2020, you have been part of a successful launch of the first BLE MIDI solution with a central role.

Community of MIDI Enthusiasts

Today, over 10,000 units are used by people like you, worldwide. The community of MIDI enthusiasts is vibrant and sharp like a razor. We love this! Your critical notes allow us to move forward. Together with you we create better products, launch new concepts and improve the performance of WIDI products.

That is why our early customers were asked to send us as many feedback, experiences and images. That is how the crowd creative campaign evolved from the epicenter of the Community of MIDI Enthusiasts. The use cases you will see in this blog derived from the subscribers to our newsletter. If you want to join, you can subscribe to our list by using the button below.

Next, you can have a look at the images that were shared by all those early adopters.

Kamyar - Canada - Adding BLE MIDI to sequencers and MIDI controllers

Thanks to Kamyar from Canada 🇨🇦 

Kamyar shared a few great pieces of equipment with you connected via WIDI Master.

As we are finalising the 1-to-4 feature and the user-friendly app soon WIDI technology can take your MIDI setup to another level. It is a feature that is internally named group connectivity. It might be the end of wired daisy chaining and ease up any MIDI connection challenge. As WIDI uses Bluetooth MIDI to connect, you no longer need to worry about cables, jacks and plugs.

That sounds interesting, right? Go here to find out more!
