Singapore • June 24, 2021 — CME announces a new firmware version for its currently available WIDI devices. Both WIDI Master and WIDI Jack can now be updated to the firmware version 0.1.3.7.
Firmware version 0.1.3.7 is released with tens of improvement including reduced latency and jitter performance for the widely acclaimed wireless MIDI group, enhance Windows 10 compatibility, and smooth firmware updating experience via the WIDI app for both Android and iOS.
Besides major improvements in the user experience, the latest firmware allows setting WIDI groups via WIDI app for both Android and iOS users. Furthermore, both WIDI Master and WIDI Jack are now fully compatible with Korg's BLE MIDI driver for Windows, allowing even multiple wireless MIDI connections simultaneously between Windows 10 and WIDI devices.
Simple vs Advanced
As automatic pairing between two Bluetooth MIDI devices is considered to be plug, pair and play and seen as ultra simple mode, the latest firmware now makes the more advanced WIDI group settings available via the WIDI app for both Android and iOS.
With wireless MIDI groups you can create wireless 1-to-4 MIDI split and 4-to-1 MIDI merge features. Via the WIDI app you can set personal preferences based on jitter and latency optimisation and set wireless MIDI groups in the default memory of each independent WIDI device
Once set, the group pairs as default when powering the WIDI devices and you can run multiple groups simultaneously. More details on advanced WIDI settings.
The WIDI App version 1.3.9 is available for Android via Google Play and for iOS (version 1.3.11) via the App Store.
