Why we started to develop the MIDI over Bluetooth solution
CME has been the wireless MIDI expert since 2005. Our WIDI (Wireless MIDI) technology already serves thousands professional musicians worldwide. Wherever they are on tour or in the studio. The Xkey Air (bluetooth MIDI controller) is now used by a wide range of producers, musicians, keyboardists and mobile music makers. We kept delivering as technology evolved.
We have been working on wireless MIDI solutions for over 15 years now. After we launched the Xkey Air (2015) we received many requests about advanced MIDI connectivity over Bluetooth. The current MIDI over Bluetooth solutions have limitations. They actually only pair your computer with a MIDI controller. That is why we’ve decided it is time to innovate wireless MIDI.
I think CME WIDI Master can be very successful. If you want to sell it “the traditional way” (distributors and dealers), and you have a pricing for it, I would be very interested in selling it. Quote as received from a renowned distributor of musical instruments
Do you really want MIDI over Bluetooth?
We asked ourselves if we could develop the wireless MIDI adapter that pairs all your MIDI devices. Without a computer. Without MIDI cables. Actually the solution has been right in front of us. Did you know CME is the only company worldwide that has developed the affordable wireless MIDI solutions for both master (WIDI BUD) and slave (Xkey Air)?
Therefore we decided to merge these two technologies. Together with the ongoing development of wireless Bluetooth (BLE) technology, we now can offer the most complete and reliable wireless solution for all your MIDI devices. We present to you today our wireless MIDI over Bluetooth adapter: WIDI Master.
We need your support to make MIDI over Bluetooth real!
