Why do you need these hybrid MIDI Tools by CME?

Currently, there are two types of MIDI Thru products on the market. One was designed 5-10 years ago and the other was designed by non-professional manufacturers.

Technology has changed rapidly in recent years and today's chips are undoubtedly faster, more accurate, more energy efficient, smaller and cheaper. For reference, take a look at what your mobile device can do today and compare it to ten years ago.

Your MIDI setup can also benefit from this latest technology.

Most MIDI tools available work well for the most basic functions, but when the MIDI information you're transmitting is a little more complicated, these products can cause unwanted and hard-to-detect data errors.

The CME development team has more than 30 years of experience in developing MIDI products. Our devices are used and praised by top musicians and engineers around the world.

As a board member of the International MIDI Association, our team is on top of of the latest developments in MIDI. Including MPE, MIDI 2.0 and BLE MIDI.

Using the latest high-speed chipsets, available only since 2022, you now have access to the best performing MIDI technology available today. 

In addition, the new suite of MIDI tools supports the most advanced Bluetooth MIDI technology via the in-house developed WIDI Core. Either built-in or optional and both for an insanely low price.

Enjoy worry-free use for the next 10 years with innovations that meet all your professional needs delivering optimal performance at the lowest possible price.

  1. I’m still trying to comprehend these set ups and how to best serve me. My question is, “once hooked up are they all working simultaneously or is there a switch capability to leave hooked up and break the connection momentarily when I don’t want all or a particular device sounding off?”. I have an old wired midi merger device I’ve used in the past before WIDI technology was on the market. It allowed me to sync and connect up to 7-8 devices simultaneously or separately by enabling a toggle switch. Still works wired but does not work with WIDI master. Any ideas or suggestions?

  2. Hello,
    I’ve got some questions :
    1. If I connect to the WIDI Thru BT by BLE MIDI, is the input duplicated to the THRU connectors ?
    2. If I connect by the IN1 and by BLE MIDI, are the merged inputs duplicated to the THRU connectors ?
    Please, let me know ASAP.
    Best regards

        1. WIDI Thru6 BT has two sides. One wired 1-in-5-out and 1-in-1-out wireless. You can use both sides. If you want to connect wirelessly your other device has to have Bluetooth MIDI. This can be already integrated like on your iPad or MacBook or added, via another WIDI device.

          Wired it is as simple as 1 in is copied to 5 outputs. You can connect any MIDI device with standard MIDI I/O via its 5-pin DIN MIDI ports.

          When you use WIDI Thru6 BT only with wires it is exactly the MIDI Thru5 WC.

          Hope this helps

    1. I cannot tell you the shipping costs as I do not know where you are located. Also, in these times, with fuel pricing fluctuation so heavily, we cannot predict future pricing of international shipping. When we ship via Amazon, the rules apply as Amazon made them. It simply becomes a regular Amazon order with a discount code.

  3. Dobrý den, chci použít svůj ipad Air2 na ovládání Korg Kronos 2 aplikací Kronos remote komunikací Bluetooth. Stále se mě komunikace odpojuje od aplikace, Ipad je přitom stále připojen k Widi Master. Mám nejnovější aktualizaci v Widi Master. Předešlá aktualizace byla lepší v tom že jsem byl schopný se připojit na několik minut. Po nové aktualizaci se málo kdy stane že se připojím ale během chvilky to opět nefunguje. Jak mám nejlépe nastavit svůj Widi Master? Ipad propojený kabelem s Kronos klávesnicí funguje bez problému. Díky za každou radu.

  4. I have a Beatbuddy type drum machine with Midi output and a table with a 3.5 jack and a C-USB connector. What do you think I could connect the two? I want to control the Beatbuddy drum machine from my tablet. Thanks for your help.
