CME WIDI Bud Pro: World's Smallest MIDI Interface

Singapore • June 17, 2021 — CME Pro, the small scale innovator with over 15 years of experience in wireless MIDI technology, is pleased to announce the most effective solution to boost wireless MIDI performance of any operating system.

The successor of the legacy WIDI Bud (2016) integrates the latest developments of CME's WIDI technology in a tiny, high performance Bluetooth MIDI super dongle. Plug WIDI Bud Pro in the USB port of your operating system and ensure ultra low latency (as low as 3ms) Bluetooth MIDI without having to upgrade your PC, tablet or smartphone.

Powered by the latest BLE 5 technology, the complete WIDI range offers wireless MIDI solutions via Bluetooth for all MIDI devices. Both hardware and software. Both instruments and apps. Pair your operating system automatically with any Bluetooth MIDI device or any piece of MIDI hardware that has Bluetooth MIDI via other WIDI devices. Enjoy the freedom of wireless MIDI with a range of 20m (65ft) without obstacles.

With automatic pairing connecting standard Bluetooth MIDI controllers and WIDI devices is as simple as plug, pair & play.

On top of this, with the improved WIDI App for both Android and iOS, you can virtually manage more complex Bluetooth MIDI groups. Via the user-friendly app you can now add up to five (5) WIDI devices per wireless group. And yes, you can run multiple groups simultaneously.

With 100% MIDI compatibility, WIDI Bud Pro offers full bi-directional transmission and reception of any MIDI message. Enjoy MIDI 2.0 ready 2-way performance and transmit all MIDI notes, CC, MIDI clock, long SysEx and MPE over air.

Go pro with wireless MIDI groups with professional performance via Bluetooth 5 technology. Reduce interference with WIDI's unique Smart Connectivity Algorithms and Adaptive Frequency Hopping. Those forces combined, deliver reliable solutions for studio and stage with 2x speed and 4x range.

Limit the amount of cables on your desk and on stage and unify your entire MIDI setup with advanced WIDI technology without the need of a battery as it is powered by standard 5v USB.

Simply get rid of those cables and enjoy the fully standalone wireless solutions with world's smallest MIDI interface via Bluetooth.

    Hi there I am based in UK and have just ordered one of these from UK supplier to avoid the hassle with customs and VAT, so sadly not able to take advantage of the summer promo . But I am looking forward to using it with EWI5000 and Widi Master to give me Wireless freedom for Sax and Brass etc..I keep getting tangled in cables when playing with band and have occasionally pulled out the USB lead so being able to move off the spot and around will be a luxury. I wonder if there is a 5pin right angled adapter for widi master so it doesn’t stick out of EWI 5000 ?

    • tgerbrands says:

      Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a pleasant wireless experience with WIDI Master. There is no angled adapter available. What you can do is disconnect the small sub-connector and only use the large main adapter. This way you only connect WIDI Master with your MIDI OUT and there is no cable bungling around that you do not need.

      Another solution that might interest you is WIDI Jack + 5-PIN DIN. You can stick the WIDI Jack anywhere on your device and use the smaller cable to connect it with MIDI OUT.

      In its essence WIDI Jack and WIDI Master are the same. Only you can use different cables with WIDI Jack and add an external power supply if needed. So, if you can find that special cable you need you can go from TRS 2.5 (3/32″) MIDI of the WIDI Jack to your DIN-5 of your EWI.

      Hopefully this helps:

      Let’s keep connected.
